Wedding bells, that is......
This is a big week for us....my middle child, my second son, is getting married next weekend. A week from today, he'll be a married man! Wow, doesn't time fly?? So, as you may or may not know, there is a lot less to do as the Mother of the Groom, as opposed to the Mother of the Bride. I still have that role to play sometime in the future, hopefully not TOO SOON!! The wedding will be held in a lovely little wedding chapel, and the bridesmaids will be wearing navy dresses and simple sandals.....carrying a bouquet of wildflowers. I am excited to see how months of planning actually play out and look. My future daughter in law is very talented and has a wonderful eye for detail!
We, as the parents of the groom, are responsible for the Rehearsal Dinner, so I have been busy planning that. I have been making some burlap runners to put on each table. On each runner, we will have a square vase of daisies and babies breath, with lemon slices around the outside of the container the flowers go into.....onto that I will tie a navy ribbon around the outside of the square vase. I also plan to have another container of candy (kisses) as part of the centerpiece. Sure hope it turns out as cute as I think it will!! =)
The week will be fun, and gathering the family together will be a real blessing!! I am very excited. Of course, I will post pictures next week of how things turn out.
Grandbabies will be here on Thursday!! So excited about that, too!!! Can you imagine??!
What a week it is going to be!!!
