One Of These In The Future

There is one of these in our future, Rachel is engaged to be Married February 19th,2010. We are happy for her and Jonathan and wish them well, they dated some in high school and parted ways and went on to other relationships. Since Rachel's divorce they started dating again off and on and fell in love and have become engaged. Jonathan loves Jace and knows that Rachel is a package deal and they have been attending church and have started pre-marital counseling with our pastor. We have given them our blessings and we are praying for them daily, the wedding is going to be much smaller than her first marriage. We are going with a shabby chic theme with some purple and sage green so I would love any ideals any of you might have. Since the girls have been grown we are now at a small church that looks like a country church ( it use to be in the country until the town has grown and spread out) We are on a very tight budget and I will be using some decor I have and will be looking at yard sales and flea markets. We have found an ivory dress on ebay that I will show you soon. I need ideals on how to make some inexpensive flower arrangments for the church and reception we will be using alot of candles and I have some mirrors I can use on the bride and grooms tables.....Barb

Oh, Barb..that is wonderful news! God bless Rachel and Jonathan in this journey..I will certainly say a prayer for them and little Jace! Yay!

I love the colors you are going with. Being that the wedding will be in February, a neat idea for an inexpensive and easy centerpiece are ice blocks. You freeze flowers and water in ice blocks (we used loaf pans) and pop them out to sit on a pretty glass dish with tea lights around them. They don't melt fast at all and look so pretty. You could do flat discs or even bowls, too, for a neat effect. I helped a friend do her whole wedding last summer and we did these. We bought the flowers from a grocer who gave us a discount. We also used a lot of vintage glassware and plates we found at garage sales and thrift stores. We put landscape pebbles surrounding all sizes of candles in the old glasses and on plates. Oh, and we used lots of Christmas lights, too..strung them everywhere and wrapped them with tulle and ivy. I have a whole list of things we did if you want me to email them to ya..just let me know! Maybe something will inspire you!
