Journey to the Altar: Busy Little Bee

by Brittiny,
who is planning her nuptials and other people's weddings, too!

I had two large weddings last weekend, and prepared the mockups for a few other weddings I have. Let me know what you think. All flowers were purchased from Wal-mart, the jewels from Sav-On Crafts, and the feathers from Hobby Lobby. I would suggest not purchasing flowers from Wal-mart, to say that I was disappointed with the quality is a severe understatement. The flowers weren't properly hydrating and were dropping petals like nothing I had ever seen. I usually order my roses from a secret source and never had that problem before, but was feeling under the weather and decided to go to Wal-mart. I was NOT happy.
Here's the centerpiece Mockup, but there will be about half a dozen to a dozen more flowers in it.

Here is another thing we did over the weekend. My assistant put the buckets together with my design inspiration etc. One of my brides has 8 children coming to her wedding and we did individual buckets for them all.

Here are some pix from this weekend's wedding, where I did all of the decor:

The bride and groom were married on a bed of roses and a backdrop of hanging orchid strands.

The bucket for the kids is a really nice idea. If they are not all the same ages you can tailor it for each kid (I know more work, but that what creative people love to do).
The planning looks like it is going well.

@Cassandra absolutely!! I was lucky in that wedding in that everyone was about the same age as my kids and the older kids were helping out at the candy buffet so they got their fill of the "big folks" candies. My planning is going errr paused I have too many weddings to really focus on my own planning right now.. I think I will get back on the ball in April since I only have one wedding.
