Welcome to Throw Back Thursday! Ok, it’s not a huge throw back, because it was last weekend. And, it was a few short months ago when my son and his new fiancé asked my great nieces to be the flower girls in their wedding. So, I think you’ll agree they are the most adorable flower girls ever….
My son proposed to his lovely girlfriend last December 21, 21016. Planning began in earnest right away. I think they both knew immediately who would be their attendants and also chose my great nieces to be the two flower girls. And because my son’s fiancé is the sweetest and most thoughtful young lady, she thought of the perfect way to ask the flower girls to be a part of their special day. Fast forward to the rehearsal, the girls are huddled in the doorway of the Great House trying to stay warm…
Back in April, Brie, my son’s fiancé, sent the two prospective flower girls a present. She sent a puzzle in the mail that the girls had to put together asking if they would be her flower girls? She also sent them adorable t-shirts that said flower girl on the front. Naturally they both said yes immediately. The girls were 5 and 7 at the time. The 5 year old, Evy, proclaimed it was her life long dream to become a flower girl. Sadie, the 7 year old was equally honored. Here is Sadie on the left along with Evy on the right. They are also first cousins and best friends. Here are the girls wearing their new official shirts.
And here is the glowing bride to be with her future flower girls at the engagement party at our lake house. This makes my heart sing.
So, fast forward to the wedding and our little flower girls are ready! Brie chose their beautiful white poufy dresses with a huge bow in the back, along with warm, white faux fur shrugs. (Perfect dresses for twirling as well.) The girls each carried a white Lillian Rose satin basket filled with white rose pedals. They performed their flower girl duties perfectly! We are so proud of our girls!
At the reception, our sweet Sadie and Evy danced the night away. Well, until their bedtime.
I think the girls were the perfect ages to be flower girls. They still have those precious little girl, innocent qualities, but will be old enough to always remember this special day. And they can wear these dreamy dresses for lots of future dress ups and tea parties. Yes, Sadie and Evy, dreams do come true. We love you and are so proud of you! xoxo Aunt Dell
