CHRISTINE'S STORY: BRIDESMAIDS GIFTS

This week we started to hand out our invitations. Traditionally, in Armenian families, we attend the guest's home and join them for a cup of tea or coffee as we present the invitations. The first place we went after our parent's homes was my cousin Armine's home. Armine's two daughters, Anita and Aileen, are also two of my bridesmaids. In addition to the invitations, I decided to present them with their bridesmaid gifts.

When I heard that there was going to be a bridal bar at last year's Harsanik Bridal Show, I was so excited! I had recently heard about lash extensions so I definitely wanted to try them.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: MY BRIDAL VEIL

Because my dress is a very dramatic ball gown, the designer suggested a short veil. The longest veil that was recommended was elbow length but I really had my heart set on a cathedral veil.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: OUR UNIQUE CENTERPIECES

Flowers have always held a place close to my heart. When I was young, my mom used to make sill flower arrangements for our house and for friends. In high school, my close friend worked at the local florist. I thought what a beautiful line of work. So I started working at the local florist in high school. I realized though, my favorite florals were wedding florals and luckily I got the opportunity to work with a florist that does a lot of weddings. Bardwell's Florist became like my second home and family.
