Those tissue paper pomanders took some time to complete (thanks babe for helping me fold those numerous paper flowers!), but were so worth it for the added color they added to the chairs.
All of our flowers were put together by our planner Kathie, and they turned out so beautiful! She did two pieces for the ceremony space in addition to the bouts and bouquets that were held during the ceremony.
Here you can see the personalized bouquet charms that I made for each of the bridesmaids based on their Weddingbee nicknames.
The ceremony chairs were topped with the bubbles that we first intended to use for our grand exit. With the venue's change in policy on sparklers we were able to use the bubbles as we walked back down the aisle.
Kathie made a little note for each seat so guests would know when to use the bubbles.
Our DIY sand ceremony set up was placed on the inside of the gazebo, and a last minute purchase of a blue tub for our DIY water bottles added some refreshment for the Texas warmth.
And we can't forget the beloved passport programs. Our ushers handed them out prior to leading the guests outside for the ceremony.
With the ceremony space set up and the bridal party hiding out inside, it was time for the ceremony to begin!
Are you planning any fun details for your ceremony space?
