Real Wedding: Anne and John, IV
April 9, 2009
New England
Religious Institution

Now on to the simple, traditional ceremony. I know that so many of you are having church ceremonies in the chapel that you grew up in, and this one is just that. I think that they key to hosting something like this is to remember that the beauty of the ceremony...the words, the love, the what you should focus on. If you want to bring in decor elements, keep them simple and modest.

From Anne...

We saved a lot of money on church decorations by placing my bouquet and my two maid of honor's bouquets on the alter. We also placed preserved topiary balls at the end of the pews. After the ceremony, we transported the them to Eolio Mansion and placed them on the staircase rails. They were the best purchase because they last forever and they look great in our home and our parents' homes.
