This is how the bridesmaids' dresses ended up turning out. They were Bill Levkoff; I was very pleased!
Btw, my college bff ordered her dress without even knowing at the time she was pregnant. She ordered one size down from what the shop recommended. Ended up freaking out this summer when she found out, and yet, she still was able to fit into around the six month mark. She's the blonde on the far right. Amazing, right?
My bouquet with the locket open to show my grandmothers' pictures.
Here you can see my veil. I chose a fingertip length that had very similar beading to my dress. The fact that it was scalloped seemed more traditional, antique-y to me. I thought it was timeless!
Here are the moss letters I almost didn't get! I was on the fence but went with it anyways. I think it added a nice touch. I figured my florist would have dressed them up with some ribbon or something. I was kind of upset that this is all it was. I didn't even bother to go back through my email to see if we discussed this. I digress...
These are the programs. I didn't put ribbon through them like I had originally planned. It was just going to be sooooo time consuming. The cross on the front is hand stamped, and there was a hand stamped fleur de lis inside as well. Me and my two bffs/bridesmaids put these together one night along with LC's help. The programs have a quote from the Song of Solomon on the inside as well a quote from Emily Bronte. You know I had to throw something English Lit in there:) By the way, everyone I know including the music director at my church said they were the nicest programs. It was a full Mass so if you're Catholic and would like the template just email me:) It took a lot of time, and I'd love to save you some by sending it to you!
I LOVE THIS PIC! I can't wait to send it to their mommies!
Now, you may kiss the bride. XOXOXOXO
Hope you enjoyed Part 1: The Ceremony!
