Show Us Your Life — Wedding Party/Flowers

Today’s theme for Show Us Your Life is your wedding party and flowers. We had a pretty large wedding party considering the chapel we got married in was quite small. We really filled up the front of the chapel, which was fine with us. We had so many people we wanted to participate in our special day. My bridesmaids wore royal blue, floor length dresses. I chose the dress because when I tried it on it even looked good on me, so I figured it would look good on anyone. 🙂 Plus, I just thought it was so pretty.

I loved the flowers we had at our wedding. My bouquet was a mix of white roses and blue delphinia. My bridesmaids carried arm bouquets of white roses. I chose the arm bouquets because I thought it would be something different.

Unfortunately, I don’t think we got any closeups of my bouquet or the bridesmaids bouquets. Oh well. We also had flowers decorating the chapel. That was something that was really important to me.




And, of course, we had blue and white flowers and petals on our cake.


So, what did your bridesmaid dresses look like, and what kinds of flowers did you use? Make sure you leave a comment if you play along so I can check out your pictures!

    Gorgeous! Everyone looks so lovely.

    I had a mixed bouquet of purple flowers and my bridesmaids each wore a different purple dress that they picked out themselves. They carried white flowers with a bit of purple mixed in.
