Inspiration for your road to the altar

Details…

October 7, 2008
As I mentioned yesterday, we don’t have all of the pictures back yet but our photographers have given us enough preview shots to let the discussion begin! The socks were a huge hit and we also took a picture of my feet in the middle of all of the boys in the wedding party, which I can hardly wait to see. I don’t think the ring bearer actually made it down the aisle with the pillow, but it made for some pretty pictures!
I love this shot of my dress. It is hanging on the balcony of our honeymoon suite while we’re inside getting ready. I didn’t even see them take it out of the room! The only problem is that it gets me overly excited to wear it again. What do you think – can we have a party where everyone gets to wear their wedding dresses again? The grooms attire – he ultimately decided to wear a pocket square instead of a boutonniere (a word I am still completely incapable of spelling) and I have to say that I didn’t miss the men in flowers at all. Initially I was kind of sad when he didn’t want to wear one, but the day of I didn’t think a thing of it!
I didn’t have a chance to write about this before the wedding, but I actually got an early wedding present a few weeks prior to the big event. Brad ordered silver Irish wedding coins from Dublin and gave them to me with a note explaining that since neither one of our families have wedding traditions, he thought we should start one of our own ((sigh)). So after we exchanged rings we also exchanged coins (you can read more about the tradition here). The whole thing meant so much to me, so I love this picture: And now, the bouquet. Being the perfectionist that I am it will be impossible for me to go through all the pictures and not point out some of the things that went wrong! I really liked the overall shape and style of the bouquet, and it smelled so good. It’s only downfall is that I really didn’t want any greenery in it at all, a point I was sure that I drove home but must not have been as adamant about it as I thought. But alas, not everything goes as planned. It was made up of English roses and gardenias (hence, the amazing smell) and before I walked down the aisle I wrapped lace from my Mom’s wedding dress around it and fastened it with an antique family brooch. I am sure there will be some shots of that to come!

    Everything looks like it was so beautiful, Darci!!! Keep us updated with pics as you get them – I’ve heard not so fun things about getting pics (proofs) back from the photogs no sooner than six months after the big day. Hope yours come sooner!!!

    Thanks everyone! Sorry for the delayed response – blogger was being moody again today and I wasn’t able to post a comment. We actually found the socks at Macy’s…they were just in the men’s department with the other socks. Hope that helps!

    I’m SO up for that wedding dress party! I love my dress so much, and it made me kind of sad as our wedding day (evening) began to wind down, that I’d never have another reason to wear it again. I did warn my husband, though, that he may come home from work one day and find me prancing around the house in it!

    Your wedding looks wonderful, keep those pics comin’!

    The pictures are so beautiful and I realized as I was looking them over so carefully that I have the same ring set! How lovely to see someone else thought they were as beautiful as I do!

    Congratulations!

    Hi Jen, thank you! I found the fabric on ebay (I can’t remember which seller) and made the pillow myself. I still have extra fabric, so if you’re interested just send me an email!
