On Tuesday, it was just me, Laker, my parents, my sisters, & Tenley.
I also painted tote bags for each girl so they'd have a good way to carry all of their things back & forth between the house & the wedding & reception venues. The bags had some other essentials in them, like bobby pins & nail files. I gave these to each girl as they arrived!
Later that day, the flowers arrived! The flowers were ordered online, & I'll explain more about the service below. Honestly, the sky is incredible, & I never got tired of that view.
On Saturday, we had a brunch for all of the girls, & some of the ladies from Ben's family joined us as well. The juice pictured is POG juice, made from this recipe. POG juice is made from passionfruit, orange, & guava juices, & is a favorite from our Disney trips, so it was a fun surprise for Mackenzie & her friends!
After brunch, we put together the wedding flowers. The flowers were ordered from Bloominous, & I really liked the experience! You can order packages online, & the flowers come in the mail in bundles. You put them together yourself - making your own bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, etc. based on the packages you ordered online. There are instructions sent with the package that detail what goes into each bouquet or item, & a photo inventory describing what each flower or greenery stem is. It came with the ribbons & floral tape we needed for each item, & the ribbons were already pre-cut for each bouquet, which was so helpful! It was fun to put everything together, & felt more personal making things ourselves!
Sunday was wedding day! More on that later!
