Ringbearer

I finished Max's ringbearer getup. I made a huge ribbon rose out of the most beautiful silk dupioni ribbon. I also made some small leaves and attached it to an awesome striped grosgrain ribbon. The whole deal is snapped onto his harness. I have to say we need to do some practicing because he doesn't really appreciate it.





This last picture is of him sulking in his bed.

My bouquet

I finally got my bouquet finished.







I also bought fabric to make the garland for the gazebo we are getting married under. We finished the favors and the programs today. My goal is to have everything done by Thursday so I can relax a little before the craziness begins.

Finished!

I finished the bridesmaids bouquet just now. I am so happy they are done. This represents almost a year of work.

Bridesmaid bouquets

I haven't posted in so long. I have been very busy with wedding preparations. I started assembling the bouquets last week and I am almost finished. They are so beautiful. I am so happy they have turned out as pretty as I thought they would be. It makes all of the hard work worth it. I think they are like carrying one big piece of jewelry.







I used the beaded flower article from Martha Stewart Weddings from I don't even know when.

It seems I am not alone in my beading madness. Take a look at this bride's handiwork.
I found this while browing Supernaturale where Glitter lives now.
