Once upon a time…

A bride saw this on The Knot and loved it:

THe Knot  aisle fresh poms

She decided it would be too costly to make, bm A shared visions of gm M (my brother) playing with them all the way down the aisle and the thought was nixed.

Recently, this bride who is knee deep in the planning stages saw this picture on the weddingbee boards:

Eek!!! Paper pomanders!!! Now THAT is an affordable alternative!!! Of course it would be in lavender and eggplant versus hot pink and black, but isn’t that gorgeous?

So, the bride got excited but then thought, “Oh wait. Huh. Our chairs and the aisle will be on concrete.”

How would I make the base work on concrete? What is that base made out in the first picture?

Dilemma #2. Err, remember how I talked about a rose petal toss for the recessional? That thought was originally spurred by a thought of hanging paper cones on the chairs for decor. Paper cones filled with rose petals and big poofy pomanders lining the aisle? Too much? I think I am on inspiration overload.

Did you love one too many ideas for the same aspect of your wedding?


One response to “Once upon a time…
