My last post may have made it sound as though I hate wedding planning! On the contrary, everything is going very smoothly, and I'm enjoying all the creative potential of planning a wedding! I just need a little philosophizing once in a while, to make sure I can keep the right perspective. And by the way -- many thanks for all your comments and suggestions! They are greatly appreciated!
So, with that said, I'm here to post about something that went "wrong!" The colors I chose for the wedding are lavender (My favorite flower/herb/scent!) and green. JoAnn's had lavender dupioni silk, which I decided to use it for the bridesmaids' gowns. I waited for a 50% off coupon and went to purchase it -- at which time I found out they couldn't special order the fabric! I started looking again, and within a few minutes I had found a lovely hunter green matte satin. It is much less expensive than the dupioni, a better fabric to work with, and it's a more "classic" color that will look good on my three bridesmaids -- while still working with my original color scheme. God was so good to lead me to something better than I had orginally planned!
It may have been a small incident -- but it was a good reminder that when situations seem difficult to me, the Lord has something better in store!
