So my baby sister got married in June 2013, I have been meaning to blog about her wedding details for a while now, but I was waiting for the professional pictures. And then you know time just slips by and its…. 2014! Well I am finally sharing the pretty pictures of my sister’s wedding details! Starting with the flower girl dresses! I shared a little bit about these dresses while work was in progress HERE. And I have already shared a few other wedding related details (shower, gifts and invites), HERE, HERE , HERE & HERE– check them out too!
Here is the gorgeous bride and groom with all the littles! All photos courtesy of my sister’s talented friend, Juli Buck of Here & There Photography.
For the flower girl dresses – worn by my daughter, my middle sister’s daughter and my brother in law’s niece – I used the Donna Dress pattern from Petite Kids on Etsy. It’s got a full circle skirt and is so twirly and fun!
I used a crushed satin fabric in an ivory that was rather see through, so in order to help that and give it more fullness, I made a simple ivory cotton slip and added tulle ruffles in layers to add a little lift to the dress. The bow tied in back and was made from coral satin. It’s a fun pop of color!
I used the same coral color in their headbands, to pull some color up and to the front, since the sash/bow was only in the back. I just wrapped a headband in the same color fabric as the dress and used THIS you tube tutorial to make the flowers out of a coral organza fabric.
I love this picture of my sister with the little girls! Bonus points, can you spot the spider on my daughter’s finger! (it is NOT a booger).
The flower girl baskets were made using THIS basket/treat bucket pattern from Birdsong Patterns on Etsy. They were tricky to make (a lot of layers) but turned out very cute and very durable!
The girls looked absolutely adorable in their dresses and I have to say that my Miss O rocked the flower girl duties – she threw those petals down with abandon! And wondered why her cousin didn’t use all of hers!
Come back soon to see Mr. V’s suit and all the fun DIY wedding details!
