secret tip for hydrangea bouquets :)

i have always looooonged to have hydrangeas for my wedding bouquet. to my dismay, after doing some research, i found out that hydrangeas perish really quickly and it would not be able to last half the day. so, on my wedding day, i was expecting baby's breath or white roses. to my joy, the florist (working with my bridal studio) gave me what i wanted, teaching us a secret tip!

"keep the flowers in the fridge. just before you take it out for the day, throw the hydrangeas into a pail of water for a few minutes... and they will look like fresh blooms...!"

and they did :) thereafter, my darling groom-to-be wrapped it in coral blue ribbon and pasted a sweet little heart on it to fit our theme :) the sweet florist also sprayed sky blue paint on PP's corsage of baby's breath to match my bouquet :)

and since we are on details, here's close-ups of my dress and shoes...

shoe soles say "happiness starts here", from Beverly Feldman (bought them from Hue in Raffles City). how apt :)

Indeed "happiness starts here" and I pray that the Lord will enable me to remember this wonderful day so that i can "rejoice with the wife of thy youth" all the rest of my days.

thank God for all these posts, they are such great testimonies and reminders!
