~Weekend Wedding Work~

The photo was taken in my studio, here at home. I spent most of the weekend, at the lake, working on chair bows. These are for my daughter's wedding in November. I will be making eight of these bows for the head table chairs. The chairs will be standard reception hall variety.
The attendants' dress color is eggplant. The bouquets are a combination of Fall colors with a bit of eggplant and just a touch of lime. Calla Lilies, Roses and Fall berries will be some of the components of the attendant bouquets. The Maid of Honor is a college friend of my daughter. The Bridesmaid is my oldest Granddaughter.
The Flower Girls will carry floral balls made of tiny Yoko Ono (green) mums. Their dresses are white with eggplant sashes. The Ring Bearer's pillow will be made of the same mum. He will be wearing a black tux, with a tiny Calla Lily boutonniere. This part of the ceremony will bring smiles, indeed! I love it when children participate in weddings! The tiniest attendants will be my two younger Grandchildren and the Groom's Goddaughter
The Bride's bouquet will be made of the above mentioned flowers, plus a beautiful green Hydrangea bloom, in memory of her Paternal Grandmother. All the bouquets and other flowers will be fresh, except for the chair bows and the arch. These will be made of silk flowers and vines. I'll be making the arrangement for the apex of the arch, as well as the chair bows.

A simple tulle bow will be tied around a chair. The silk bouquet will be attached to the tulle bow, using a pin attached to the back.
My daughter has engaged a "day of wedding" coordinator. She and her partner will attach the bows to the chairs and take care of other last minute decorating and wedding details.
The wedding ceremony and reception are at the same venue, a rustic lodge with a beautiful view through windows across the back of the building.
The ceremony music will be provided by an acoustic guitarist.
