Just to set things up: my mom is part of a 4 lady team that's been buzzing around helping out with friends weddings for about a year. They have been the decorative and organizational backbone of about three weddings (mainly family members). They aren't paid, they're just helping.
Recently my old friend Alston got married. His mom is part of this outstanding team and with a very small budget and a boat load of creativity and hard work, they put together a GREAT small rustic wedding. How good?
They're putting it in The Knot.
YEP. My mamma and her girls are goin' in The Knot magazine. Awesome, right? Did I mention all these ladies will also be working my wedding? SWEET! They really do know their stuff. I've been trying to convince my mom and them to really start up a business! Mom has her catering licence, they know more about flowers than you can shake a stick at, and they will always get things done! They've joked about it plenty of times, but now I think they are seriously considering it! They are working on a name right now! (Mainly because the Knot asked for a name, but yeah.) Here's some of the stuff they did!
