Lots of wedding things

We went to my parents' house last weekend for a family BBQ and had a blast! It was our 3rd annual Land Park BBQ, although we decided to have it inside their house instead of at Land Park because it was about 105 that day (see pictures from last year here). I made this greek orzo salad and this broccoli salad - yummm!

I really wish I had taken more pictures, but at least I got a few shots of the beautiful bamboo arbor that my dad made for our wedding ceremony:

Isn't it amazing?!

Thank you Dad!!

Over the past few weeks (months?) I've also made some wedding purchases....

My earrings, ordered from here

Here are the ties for James and his best man (his stepdad), that match Rose's dress. They're from Sears, a store I loathe... but they were 1/3 the price of the ones at Macy's!

And here's the maid of honor looking beautiful in the dress I got her, and the shoes we found a few weekends ago (holding an invisible bouquet)

Tie with the dress... close enough!

So you know the saying "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue?" I didn't think I had anything at first. I kept saying I only had something new [everything], but for old, I think I'll use the clutch I found a few months ago. And it has some blue in it too! Teal... blue... same thing, right?

Now I just need something borrowed!

I don't know Ashley! A bracelet or perfume maybe? Would that count??

love the arbor! we're so lucky to have dads that can do that kind of stuff for us. this will look beautiful at your ceremony? are you dressing it up with fabric/flowers or leaving it how it is? beautiful either way!
