- Wedding: October 2012
After doing endless Google searches for inspiration to find the perfect way to ask 5 my best friends to be part of my bridal party, I stumbled across an old Weddingbee Blog from Mrs. Cherry Blossom that gave me the perfect idea… 🙂 I ordered a similaraccordian book kit online and got to work!! It took a little bit of time, but it was SO fun looking through old photos and it felt great to put together something so personal and memorable for each of my fav gals. So far.. I’ve personally delivered 2 of the 5 books and they LOVE them! I have plans to give the other 3 this week and I can’t wait!
We are planning an October wedding in 2012, so I ordered the “chocolate” books and found some really fun “Autumn” themed scrapbook paper. The royal blue ribbon that completes the project is the color I’d like for their bridesmaid dresses… 🙂 I think the color will look beautiful on everyone and will really pop against the Fall setting and the vision I have for their pretty Fall-inspired bouquets.
In each book… I started with the older photos and then worked my way up to something more recent to represent the length of our friendships. Some girls are married now, some have children or are expecting, I also made sure to make note of those big moments… now our wedding can be the next big thing!
My Messy Work Space! FH didn’t mind that I took over the living room for a few days.
The covers were probably the most tedious, gotta get the folds just right!
The beginning of my book for the Matron of Honor… friends since I was in 2nd grade!
Through the years…
Now she’s married… I was a bridesmaid in her wedding last year… 🙂
The last photo we took was right before running our first 5k together!
A complete book… it’s so fun and a great keepsake of memories… 🙂
Made with love, sealed with a bow!
