Wedding Flowers: Bridesmaids Edition

Alright ladies, I'm in a slump. My camera battery has been dead for days and there is a big pile of pictures waiting on my desk. But I haven't snapped or scrapped one picture since I got back from New York!

Does anyone have any ideas on how to break out of this rut?

So, until then, I'll share the flowers we've chosen for the bridesmaids' bouquets, because, well, I have nothing crafty to share!

And those are the flowers! Pale yellow stock, cream porcelina spray roses and green hydrangea. Only I'm not sure if I'm going to change the green hydrangea. The ones I saw were pale pale green, almost off white, with just a hint of green. Those are the ones I want, not the super green ones (like these)! Now that the dresses are spice, we don't want a repeat of the St. Patrick's Day bridesmaids dresses incident!

Well, I'm going to try to break out of this slump today. Any suggestions are welcome and will be tried!

Just get back to it..that is my only advice for a slump or call it a break and start up again when you're ready. Beautiful flowers!!! Hydrangeas are my favorite!! I know what you mean about the palest hint of green vs very green hydrangeas.

Very pretty flowers!
I think the spice color is very pretty.
My one wedding horror story involved changing the dress color, too. And unfortunately cancelling the whole bridesmaid dress order, getting our money back and having to go the route of having the dresses made by a seamstress in three weeks!
Let's just say at least it was the only mishap. Well except my sister pulling out of the wedding at the last minute because she had a baby :) But a new nephew was so welcome.
And it all worked out in the end.

So if anything, I am here to tell you that it really does work out! I just smiled on my wedding day and promised myself I would relax and enjoy it. And I did! :)

So glad you are going with the hydrangea! It gives so much bang for the buck. Don't stress over exact colors for bridesmaid flowers. You will be the focus, and all anyone remembers. The things people remember from a wedding? the wedding gown, and the food! Have fun with this.

Those are beautiful, especially love the hydrangeas. I know the color will work out perfectly. As for the slump, I would make a card or tag or embellishment. Something small that makes you feel as if you've accomplished something. If you make a tag or an embellishment, then you can use it on your layout! I have to stay away from the computer or else I'll be on there all day! :)

A pretty choice of flowers Katie. My daughter used the real light green flowers like that. I thought they would be gross, but they were very pretty in the flower combo she chose.

Your bridesmaids dresses are lovely too. Love all the shirring on the top and the color will be beautiful!
Glad you finished your blankey too...it is almost school time!
