Instead of the traditional gift opening, gifts were handed to the bride as guests entered the room. The bridesmaids unwrapped each gift and displayed the gift on a beautiful table adorned with rosette linens and a grand pink and green centerpiece. Silver frames were placed by each gift with the name of the person who was giving the gift.
