the wedding

this is how I spent my Sunday
making flowers for a wedding
both the gal and her fiance are Marines and
he will be home for Labor day week and 
they want to tie the knot then
poor thing......her family is giving her a hard time
they want the huge fancy wedding
the couple does NOT
they just want to do it and be married
so she is trying to make them happy by meeting
in the middle with a garden wedding
she loves sunflowers and blue roses
so this is what we did

this is her bouquet copied after one on pinterest
it came out very close and is prettier than in this photo
I am not a photographer for sure

the roses alone are boutonnieres for groom and groomsmen
the sunflower boutonnieres for Dads and granddads

this is the maid of honor bouquet

and the bridesmaid 

and these are for the Moms and Grams

all in all we made quite a few of everything
and had flowers left over for tables and cake
AND brought some back to get her money back
for those we didnt need

a fun day was spent doing these with my niece...........

one monkey off my back.........

now to dress myself for another wedding coming up

anyone else hate dress shopping???
