Shoes- I will sew matching silk ribbons to the ankles to make them resemble my ballet shoes since I was a dancer 15 years.

DIY Make-Up-I raided the MAC counter and Sephora and got a ton of tips from Kandee Johnson the make-up artist.  She's awesome!

I will be wearing my great-grandmother's engagement ring (circa late 1920s), my mother's pearl necklace, and my maternal grandmother's pearl earrings.  I will have a little piece of all three generations walking with me down the aisle.  I couldn't find any jewelry of my paternal grandmother's, so my FI and I will be using the remaining two champagne flutes of her wedding set (circa 1940s) for our toast.  Vintage all over the place :)


My FMIL is making my garter from lace remnants of my mother's wedding dress.  She is making two, one to toss and one to keep.
