wedding whites...

 wedding plans are coming together



first things first
...the dress...

for  white wednesday
 I thought I'd show you 
what 
she didn't choose


they were all so beautiful 


and
so was she

(we went prepared)



all of her bridesmaids were there




along with her daddy 
and baby briscoe




 and all agreed that 

she did find the one
the one that  made her come alive
the one that made her glow.
~

~

it's a gorgeous and fun one
but  
it's a surprise
~so I can't show you ~




 I can show this very fun 
going-away bag
I know you all will appreciate 
 burlap
at its finest
 it's  a clue
to where we are going.


It's been 10 years 
since I last planned a wedding.
things have changed
and 
 there's the internet...
Do you know how many wedding blogs there are?




We are having fun!
Happy White Wednesday...

fairmaiden said...

This is so much fun...and you've shared it in a way that lets us enjoy it too. She is such a doll...all those adorable shoes and she has such style...I know I will love what she puts together. So burlap? is it going to be in the decorating? thats my guess. Happy days ahead.

Hey, take a look at the last picture of your daughter and the picture of you(?) on your sidebar, the one just below the White Wednesday picture.
The similarities gave me a chuckle.

Almost 30 years ago..we planned our daughter's wedding....then almost 6 years ago I planned my granddaughter's wedding...I have her dress here on a dress form..just love it...she was so beautiful...it makes me cry thinking about it.
So I know how happy you are for your daughter..they both look SO YOUNG !!! Some of the most stressful times and yet the happiest of times as you well know.

Woman...I have to tell you I don't think there is ANYONE in blogland that has more things that I love as much as I love your "Stuff"...my goodness you have so much adorable, loveable, white and wonderful, vintage treasures.
If I had your bedroom, I would never want to leave it..it would be a wonderland to me.
Just wanted you to know.

Rene,
Your 'mini me' looks beautiful! She will be an amazing bride. You have my curiosity aroused. Hummm, will it be that dress with a big burlap flower on her hip??? I wish she'd wear those awesome cream satin slippers you have in your bedroom. Although her black ones look cute. Lisa

Diva Dee said...

So exciting for you and your daughter, oh and the whole family too!
What a blessing you are able to help her, can't wait to see the real dress pick! That bag, amazing!
