5 Things I Loved About Brittany + Sam’s Wedding
5.) Brittany chose to get ready at her apartment in Rowley, Massachusetts opposed to a hotel because she wanted to be in her own surroundings… Cats, vintage carpets, plants, candles, macrame decor, big leather couches (a very bohemian feel—which was her through and through).
4.) Her Bridesmaids had Floral Hoops. Her Maids and Matron of Honor had lush floral bouquets.
3.) She brought Oriental Carpets from her house to the ceremony site and placed them down the aisle and under the arbor for an added touch.
2.) A fun and energetic Father/Daughter dance was a great way to end “formalities” and open up the dance floor.
1.) The Details!! There were so many. From the floral decor and macrame on the arbor, to the “party animal” escort cards (which she bought, cut and spray painted herself), the gold-dipped feathers that she hand-coiled with needle-nose pliers and gold wire (these were placed at everyone’s table) and the Peacock Chairs (which were a Craigslist find she drove 6-hours roundtrip for).
Bonus Thing I Loved: Her Dad saved a bottle of Dom Perignon that was given to him in the hospital as a gift the day she was born. To her surprise, he brought it to her wedding, had the uncle that gave it to him do the honors of popping the bottle, and they used that champagne to toast.
