- Wedding: May 2011
We had to move our wedding indoors with only a few weeks notice because of the cicada invasion, so we needed something special for the aisle. My father passed away 2 years ago today, so my mother and brother walked me down the aisle. Therefore, we needed an aisle that was wide enough for three people to walk down. My husband and I hand-dyed approximately 2500 white petals (from Dollar Tree – $1 for 100 white petals) various shades of green, blue, and aqua. We then hotglued them to 6inch wide tulle ribbons. It took a long time as each one was almost 25 yards long, but I liked the way they turned out! We all took turns attaching the petals, including my brother’s boyfriend, my husband, and I.
