one thing was decided right off i wanted a DIY wedding! And i'm so glad i stuck it out (although at times is was quite a lot of work) i put my heart and soul into everything and what a memory creating our perfect day!
What i wasn't prepared for and what i would mention to every bride to be is how emotionally draining it can be! even more so then what you might think or are prepared for.

for me i discovered it was - making my own bouquet
over and over i was picturing myself walking down the isle... as i assembled and rearranged all the flowers.. then i'd poke my finger with a pin and i was already on the verge of tears.. it was emotional to say the least. however, i had a lot of back up and the best family and maid of honor support system. i talked it out and continued with what i knew i wanted - silk flowers that would last forever!

announcing us as man and wife
my bouquet has a forever place in my heart with all its memories it carries of our day and found its permanent home on my night stand
