Wife 2 Wife; All in the Details

I decided it would be fun to link up with Kelly and Cheltee for their Wife 2 Wife link-up this month. Today's topic is our favourite detail from our wedding. I couldn't pick just one, so I picked two.

The first detail I picked was my flowers. We used a lady who worked out of her home for our flowers. (She no longers does wedding flowers or I would definitely be sharing her website with you!) I told her I loved gerbera daisies, the colour pink, and gave her ribbon that matched our colours. Dad picked up the flowers and brought them to my aunt's house where I was getting ready with my bridesmaids. When I opened the boxes I was absolutely blown away. I was so impressed with the flowers. Flowers weren't that important to me, but looking back now they are definitely one of my favourite details.

My other favourite detail was my veil. It was actually my mom's veil that she altered herself to be more like what I was looking for. I loved knowing I was wearing the same veil she had, and I loved how beautiful it was. And it was so different from what I was seeing in all the bridal shops. Originally I hadn't been planning on wearing mom's veil because it had kind of a weird hair piece attached but when she offered to alter it I was thrilled.

I can't believe I'll have been married for 5 years next month!

  1. We used pink gerbera daises too. We actually used fake flowers though so I still have my exact bouquet on display in my bedroom. Your veil is gorgeous!! How special that it was your Momma's. Thanks for linking up :-)

  2. Love love love! I love the colors in your bouquet, and I LOVE that veil! Is that a lace edge I see? So gorgeous!

  3. Gorgeous flowers!!! I love daisies (my fave flower!). I didn't do a veil for my wedding but kinda wish I could go back in time and do one :) It looked so pretty on you!

  4. I am not a big Pink fan but I love you flowers. Your veil is also breath taking and makes me wish I would have had a veil on my wedding day.
    Thank you for linking up with Kelly and I, we hope to see you next month!
