In just 10 days I'll be loading up the Jeep and heading down to Chingoteague, Virginia. My amazing and dear friend, Jaclyn, is getting married and I'm lucky enough to not only be able to celebrate with her, but to also be a bridesmaid. She and her fiance, Tom, are getting married on the beach, an absolutely beautiful beach where wild horses run in fact. (In case you were wondering, she's getting married on the same island where my family and I went on vacation this year, just about an hour south.) It's going to be amazing, full of friends and love and good times.
Awhile ago, Jackie asked me to make a few handmade bouquets for the the bridesmaids and an additional toss bouquet, so that the girls were able to take their bouquets home as a keepsake from the wedding. Now I have to say to those of you who make these pretty flowers regularly for weddings or for your etsy shops, kudos to you! They are a complete pain in the rump to do in large quantities!! Despite that though, I think that the final products turned out beautifully and I'm excited to be able to stand by my friend and contribute to her special day.
I'm linking up!
