My sister-in-law, Meredith (Mern) is in Mass General right now... she's been there this past week as they have been trying to figure out what is wrong with her heart... the doctors have drained 17 pounds of fluid out of her belly because the heart isn't working well enough to tell the body to drain it normally. She is my size... so all that fluid in her stomach made her look like she was 7 or so months pregnant. On Friday she was put on the heart transplant waiting list. She's 27 years old and nothing like the typical transplant recipient.
I cannot believe how strong she is... she is going with the flow and trying to have the best spirit possible about this whole situation. I visited her on Thursday and she had an awful procedure done that morning... after asking her all about it I asked her about something I knew would cheer her up: her ideas for her wedding someday. After she told me all about what she would like it to look like I went home and looked on Pinterest for some ideas to put her vision to life... her you go, Mern. :)
What about pies since you can't figure out what to do for a cake? You could make up a special recipe and call it the Wedding Pie (or something a lot more original). :)
What about something like this for your bouquet?
And for the girls' bouquets... but I also think this outfit would be great for the groom.
Or you could tweak colors in this slightly so it goes better with the colors for your bouquet:
Okay, Mern, and since we are on the topic of flowers... and you couldn't get the watering cans you talked about for the centerpieces, what about something cute like this?
But I do love your idea for a watering can... so cute.
And what about a gorgeous dress like this since you mentioned the fabulous idea of lace...
I can see Chuck in an outfit like this groom... without the hat.
We should probably talk about that fabulous barn you want it in....
Okay... and of course I'm brainstorming some fabulous photo opportunities too...
For the details...
Birch stands for varying height flowers or decorations:
I'm sure, Mern, there are a million other details we could think of but it was just fun to put some photos to things you and I were talking about! Love you!
