Mother of the Bride







Well, for my daughter's wedding, I tried to do everything! I did hire a photographer for the day of the wedding, but I did her portraits. I did the invitations, bookmarks, favors, napkin holders, etc. My friend and I did the flowers and several friends helped with the food. One friend did the beautiful fruit centerpiece for the table for the reception. I was doing the nugget candies long before they became "cool" and there were tins for them! The strawberries I did at one in the morning when I could not sleep.
I don't recommend doing everything unless you are like me and just want to do everything!!! The papercrafting items can be done in advance, so that is fine. Luckily I only have one daughter....well, not counting the ones I have adopted along the way!
