So I am having two maid's of honor but really one maitron and one maid!

Maitron of Honor- My best friend in the WHOLE world my sister Tara! We may be nine years apart but we have become so close and I love her more than anything and I am so proud to have her up there with me standing right next to me just like I was for hers! She is the third from the left! And that is my mom and dad and my beautiful niece Sydney!

Maid of Honor- My other best friend in the WHOLE world! I don't know what else I can say about this girl other than she has been there through EVERYTHING with me for the past 9 years! I can honestly say we have never not been friends since the time we met and she is the first person I call for advice and I love her to death! She is the best friend I could ever ask for!!!

Next up is my other sister-in-law Jenny! I have known Jen since I was 11 years old! My brother and her have dated ever since then! She is the sweetest girl in the world and I honestly feel like we really are sisters since she has been around for so long! :)

Also there is Wendy who is Jason's sister.  She has been so helpful through all of this wedding planning! She always makes me laugh and can always put a smile on my face! I can't believe we are going to be "sisters" soon!!

And then there is Valerie! My soon to be sis-in-law.  She is marrying Jason's brother on 2/07/09. We are seriously the same person in one! We like the same things and we always have a blast together! I sometimes feel like she was my twin separated at birth! lol :)

For the centerpieces, I will have three different heights of glass vases.  2 tall ones and a shorter one filled with ice crystals and an arrangement of my flowers.  The two tall ones will look something like these.Large glass cylinders were filled with sea glass, cymbidium orchids, and a floating candle. Three, small, similarly filled cylinders surrounded the larger vase.  Votive candles added a soft glow.Pink floating orchids, purple tulips, burgundy calla lilies, bells of Ireland, orchids and greenery overflowed from trumpet vases.

The really tall ones will have a stem of green orchids in the bottom with a big arrangement on top with my flowers and the other tall one will have a stem of blue delphinium in the bottom with an arrangement up top.

My dress is a Pronovias dress.  It is called the Dango and I purchased it in May of 2008! It is a dropped waist gown and is very light and airy, so perfect for a warm June day!

For the groomsman, I have decided to keep them in tan since they all complained that they get hot and sweat! So they will be wearing that with green vests and ivory shirts.  Jason will be wearing an ivory vest with ivory shirt.

For my bridesmaids I went back and forth about what to put them in, every dress I chose got discontinued it seems! So finally we decided on a green dress by B2 that is fun and flirty and comfortable for everyone. The Wedding Attire photo 6This is the actual color of the dresses The Wedding Attire photo 7
