Unexpected Blessings

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!


  1. That will be a lovely colour - my sister chose that colour for her wedding, I was a bridesmaid. It was good, because it suited all 3 of us bridesmaids, even though we had very different colourings. And it still looks lovely in the photos ten years later!

  2. Very beautiful!! And it's so true. God really does see the "whole picture" in our lives! :)

  3. Lovely! Now you can use purples for your flowers/ribbons/accents...what fun!

  4. God is amazing, isn't He!? His time line is not ours, but we DO rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Praise God! :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much for stopping by!
