Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

A wedding picture--with flowers!

Why am I posting this? Because I can.
Okay, really it's because there's someone planning a wedding and I'm offering (unsolicited but politely heard) advice. She asked what kind of flowers we got for our budget ($300), and this is a relevant shot.

That's Diane, by the way.

Ooo, thanks for posting, those bouquets are gorgeous (and HUGE)!

Love the stuck-out tongues even more than that gorgeous forest green you picked for her... :-)

Green was a wonderful choice for all three bridesmaids. Sue (MoH) has black hair, darkish skin, and brown eyes--anything but yellow, pretty much.
Christina had light brown hair and green eyes--she looked great.
You see Diane.
It was Ordinary Time, and them wearing green meant the flowers were easy. :)

Funny - I have a bridesmaid named Christina with light brown hair and green eyes too. :-p

I wish I'd thought about the liturgical season when we picked the BM dress colors, but the mulberry color we picked shouldn't be too bad...though I think I will steer clear of true reds.

(I'm meeting with the florist tomorrow to finalize things...I'm printing this picture to put into my idea folio. Thanks again! Oh...and thanks too, because I think I have actually found someone paler than me!! ;-) )

Me or Diane?

Oh that's a great photo!

We went super cheap on the flowers. Yes, even cheaper than you, Heather! I actually bought some bundles of roses and a few other flowers at the supermarket. A very kindly neighborhood florist told me if we were arranging them ourselves they were just as fresh there as the ones he got as they all came from the same wholesaler. And my sister's friend, who is now a lawyer but if that ever falls through she could easily be a florist, arranged them into bouquets and boutonnières. Now, I know not everyone is lucky enough to have a friend willing to fly from Texas to do the flower arranging for free; but boy did it help with our tight budget!

Best of luck, Kasia!

You, Heather - Diane's got nothin' on me. :-)

I realized you were pale, but seeing you in the wedding dress convinced me: I am not the palest person I know.

Now if I can just convince my sister of that, she can concentrate on the size of my head instead of my pastiness...

Kasia--just show the picture to your sister. Yeah, I have a watch line in January. And I wear "liquid shirt" year round.

I blistered once with a sunburn when I was 12--here in Michigan.

Dale jokes that I burn if I stand too close to the microwave.

Tan is a sign of damage!

I come back from vacation and find my tongue plastered all over the Internets! :P I liked the dark green dress muchly - it's a good foliage background. My own flowers were artificial for no particular reason that I can remember. I think it's because I just let my mom take over all the details. The last wedding I went to, they bought roses at a florist and tied them in bunches with ribbons.
