53/365 Wedding Day Memories

Here are my bridal bouquet & headress, along with my husband's button hole and my Mum's corsage. I came across them the other week when looking for the vintage toys for Jodie's school topic, and left them out to include in my blog. All the flowers were silk/dried and included poppy seed heads and pine cones. We were married on the first day of autumn and our colour scheme was autumnal. I am something of a control freak and had all the flowers ready 6 weeks in advance of the wedding as I didn't want to risk fresh flowers turning up completely wrong on the morning of the wedding! (September 23rd, 1994)

When I was arranging them this afternoon a piece of pink confetti fluttered to the floor, having been caught up amongst the flowers since The Wedding Day! I supplied all the lady guests and children with colour-fast confetti in heart & butterfly shapes in heart shaped boxes. I tested several makes to find a colourfast one and the reason for this was that a friend's dress was ruined by red & pink confetti which ran when it became wet on their drizzly wedding day. (Control freak - see?? I'm not so bad since I had kids!!) Perhaps another day I'll bring out my dress, veil and lace ankle boots...

  1. How nice that you still have those. Beautiful captures

  2. They are beautiful. Love the arrangement. Mine were real red roses, so I just have to take pics like I did last week when my husband gets me new ones :) We also got married in Vegas...
