June a Tradition: Men become Grooms and Women become Brides

How many women share this month as their wedding day?
I was a June bride and therefore my anniversary is celebrated this month.
I began this tablescape as a nod to all brides and all those who enjoy celebrating their anniversary, no matter what month, with the one they love.
The sweet bride is peeking into the chapel so let's view what she sees.........
Who is this?
What, a bride in charge of her future!
 Yes, you are viewing a groom who was a little reluctant to meet his bride's desire to wed! 
As, you can see she is a determined woman and he is a now going to be co-operative!
 As, you can see the peeking bride envisions her dream and desires of how this wedding will come together one way or another!
This is a whimsical Bride's table made for you to enjoy and with a lot of elegance.
 Remember when you were a bride or soon to be a bride. I hope the memories are being made by the bride-to-be or the memories come back to you as you think of  your special day. 
I have had this bunny bride for several years and she is waiting for her groom in the white metal gazebo! 
She is excited too, for she loves her gown with the pink roses and her little pink rose bouquet.
The smile on her face shows the joy of this wedding!
 The bunny groom is so happy he is waiting for his bride. 
He is so dapper from his top hat to the tails.
He has a twinkle in his eye as he stands in the gazebo and waits for the time to begin the walk to the chapel!
 Your setting begins with a pink rim and gold trim bowl by Lux Ciroa is for a simple soup.
Then the pink rim and gold trim tea plate by Lux Ciroa will serve tea delicatcies. 
 Then, for a special addition is an antique plate for a field greens salad.
 Each plate is had colored with different flowers.
 The rim is scalloped and embossed with gold for an elegant touch.
An entrĂ©e will be served on the dinner plate with a green rim and gold trim by Grace's Teaware.
 The right side of the plates has your cup and saucer with the crystal.
The green stem goblet will be for water. You pink crystal goblet is for sparkling grape juice. 
Your glass with the green stem and pink rings is by Le Stelle.
 The pink crystal with the clear stem is another Italian goblet.
When the tea is served in this pink and gold accented teapot by Grace Teaware it will contain a hot raspberry flavored tea.

 A chintz flowered teacup and saucer has a lovely pink background for you to enjoy tea. Enjoy the addition of a gold flowered spoon to stir the sugar you tea.
 Grace Teaware has a pretty pattern with gold trim.
 The left side of the plates has a bright pink napkin with a beaded green napkin ring. A favor for each guest is the lollypop green tree. 
Your full place setting has a beautiful pink woven place mat. The bling accent is the gold flatware. 
 Our determined bride is peering back into the chapel remembering her wedding and still clutching her groom.
She is so happy with herself! 
 Hope your memories are all represented in this quote of "Happily ever after"!
The bride has her happiness as I do, for my groom was not reluctant and tells me everyday he loves me! 
Weddings are Wonderful!
Have all the joy of that day, every anniversary!

Happy Anniversary, Pam! I was a May bride but no matter the month, I married my prince. Love your sweet tablescape. The pink and gold trimmed dishes are lovely as well as the green and chintz. The bunnies and brides are so cute! Thank you for sharing your lovely and whimsical tea table. Have a beautiful day.

Happy Anniversary, June is the month for brides, isn't it! Our wedding was on July 1 and we'll celebrate 42 years.
Your table was fun with the rabbits and reluctant groom. The teapot and dishes are stunning and well thought out for how the courses will be.

I am so glad that you and your husband enjoy your marriage and share the love so freely. That's what marriage should be. I know there are plenty of women out there who would give their right arm for that!

The stuffed bride & groom are just cute as a button! There's definitely whimsy in them as well as the bride dragging her groom to the altar!

LOVE those pink dishes and the teapot! Oh, my gosh, what an downright gorgeous color!!! Love your stemware, too!

Very happy and fun tablescape!

How the bunny bride and groom and, of course, the bride with her reluctant groom. All whimsy aside, I adore those pink and green goblets and the pretty teapot, cup and saucer. And thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving me such a nice comment.
