For an Old Friend

 A long time ago I was in highschool and I had some pretty good friends. One of those friends was Michelle. She was such a great girl and still is! Well, this past summer she went and got herself married. I was so excited when she asked me to help out with a few things, I couldn’t wait to get started! She sent me her ideas and pics of what she was going for and then I got to making.

The bridesmaid bouquets were fun to make. She wanted them out of feathers, so I went and gathered feather I could find to fit her vision and match her colors.

This is what I came up with. I will say, I have never inhaled so many feathers as I did while making these! lol. Good thing they didn’t make me all sneezy :)

{See my prego belly there? lol. I miss it at times….}

The maid of honor’s bouquet was a bit bigger on accident but it turned out to work well. The light purple feathers in this one were actually sprigs I found at a local store. But, they stopped selling them, so I had to chop up a purple feather boa and create my own sprigs to make the other girls bouquets.

I wrapped the stems in black satin ribbon and added black satin over the base of the bouquet holder.

Then I made some boutonnieres for the guys.

I found the little calla lilies at Hobby Lobby. The green swirlies are just green taped wire. I wrapped it around my finger for the big one and around a pencil for the little ones. Then I added a peacock feather, bead, and a leaf.

Lastly, I helped with the invites. She went with these from Michaels. I just added a different ribbon in the color she wanted instead of what it came with.

I really like these kinds of diy invites. They are really easy to do.

Thank you so much Michelle for letting me be a part of your special day!!!!! I will always remember you my friend no matter where life takes us. Thank you to Currie Fitzhugh as well for letting me use some of her photos. See here for more photos from Michelle’s wedding.
