My sister got married!

 It was a magical day in the backyard of our Michigan House on the only fall day where the sun was shining and the high temperature was over 70 degrees.

My girls, along with my sister's new nieces, were the flower girls.  Their dresses were unlike any flower girl dresses I've ever seen before.

My sister has great style.  And a great eye.  She does not have a Pinterest account and wanted everything to be uniquely theirs.  After she picked her (AMAZING!) dress and the bridesmaid dresses, we moved on to the flower girls.  Or, as my daughters thought, the most important part of all wedding planning.

Together, matron of honor and bride scoured all of the typical flower girl sites and we were both left unimpressed.  Then I remembered that I had seen a 'Holiday & Occasions' tab on the Chasing Fireflies website.  Jackpot.

The dress my sister selected for the four girls was romantic, age appropriate and just flat out gorgeous.  The 3/4 length sleeves were great for the unexpected Michigan weather.  The neckline detail echoed my sister's dress and the cascade of ruffles down the front mimicked my sister's dress.

The flower girl dresses came with a removable sash that we switched out for satin ribbon that matched the bridesmaid dresses to pull the look together.  Gold monogram lockets were a gift from my sister to all of the girls and they were a sweet addition.  The girls wore floral wreathes made by my mom and her friends that were small replicas of my sister's.
