We were lucky enough to have a ward member that owns a small but beautiful reception center be kind enough to let us have it there.
We gathered some old and some new wedding dresses for the display.
The girls and their moms played a get to know you game before we got started.
I made a small wedding cake to add to the atmosphere.
I wrote some key words on the bottom layer to help the girls visualize what they must remember on their road to the temple... (click to enlarge)
We had Sister Reid ~ a former Temple Matron speak to the girls about preparing for the temple. She was wonderful and so sweet!
We also had a wonderful slide show of the mothers AND leaders wedding pictures! Wish I could add that on here. It was VERY entertaining to see some of those hair styles and dresses!!!
Group picture of the leaders. We have a lot of fun in case you can't tell! Not quite ready for the picture...
BUT....not QUITE as much fun as me and the girls. Yes, I think I am one of them. I confess, I am the one that instigated this whole photo shoot. I kidnapped a few of them that were waiting to go home and took advantage of the great photo opp in this amazing bride room!
Dreaming and wondering...
I love each one of these...'my'... 30 + girls as if they were my own! I am so grateful I get to be their "mom" too!
