GETTING READY GEAR
So I decided to join the band wagon of the Bridal hoodie! I didnt wanna do it because they are so expensive. But, I ran across this cute one that fit the bill www.customglamgirl.com. And is stamped with PW approval when I posted in the forum whether or not i should get the Victoria Secret Sexy Little Bride hoodie or this cutie! Check it out! Everyone loved it!
Yes ladies im doing the birdcage veil! these two below are my inspirations! i want same netting but a bit lower, maybe beneath the nose or at the mouth! i love these type veils! they are so chic. Im thinking of wearing my birdcage to the side now. I love the pic of this bride with hers like this! So its my new inspiration!
Here is my new birdcage inspiration from OnceWed. I love the different looks of a birdcage veil and I think I found one I love on ETSY. But, im gonna look around on the web a little more to be sure.
So i finally bought my birdcage veil! I got it from Etsy seller AnnMarieBridal. I ordered in Ivory and I cant wait to try it on. I also purchased my fascinator from Etsy seller VintageBox1947! I love em so far!
Here is me in my veil!
So the first pair i alreadyd have, i wore them for bpics and they were not too comfortable! they pinched at the toes so im currently looking for another pair. Check out these hot pink ones from ninashoes.com they also have them in purple so its hard to figure out what color i want. But, i will definitely have some slippers for back up, i dont want to walk around crazy in my dress!
I love the back of these babies! I think its going to make some hot shoe pics!
So purple or pink???? I may be leaning towards the purple. Decisions, decisions!
UPDATE: The 1st shoe, Guess Nina's! I ordered the Electras from Nina and they were on backorder so I couldnt take them to my first fitting since I didnt have them. So I took my Guess ones and I still love em! I will just be sure to keep some cute slippers nearby to change into for comfort.
HAIR AND MAKEUP
I havent a clue how i wanna wear my hair. i do want to wear it low because of the birdcage veil. i dont know if i want it all pulled back like the first pic, or have some looseness to it like the 2nd or 3rd! I also love hilary's makeup in the first pic. i want a smokey eye for my wedding so im thinking of doing either silvers or browns! i guess we will see how my consultation goes. and definitely some lashes!
Check out this makeup also!
I love this brides hair! Its what I feel that i want. Something with body and beautiful curls and sexy. Check it out!
ok and now im thinking of wearing my hair down! check out these cute looks, i think it also goes with my vintage glam vibe with my birdcage and everything!
So im debating posting my dress because i dont know when the FI likes to walk in while im on the computer! But ill update this soon, i think :/
So i have my something borrowed! My MOH use to work for SWAROVSKI so she has a pair of earrings that may go perfectly with everything. Im still going to buy another pair of earrings just in case i decide i want a bit more. I cant find a pic but will update soon. I dont know if i want to do a necklace because the bust area has some beading to it. plus with the birdcage i dont know if it will be too fussy up top. But, im definitely going to get a blinged out cuff bracelet! Ill find some inspiration pics on this soon!
Here is necklace and earrings from etsy seller DAMSELLE. I love the broach on this necklace so I purchased it ASAP. The earrings are dangle earrings. I figure with the birdcage veil it shouldnt be too busy up top I hope. If so I will just do some blinged out earrings and a bracelet per my original plan. Here you go! I bought it with a bracelet too but it was too small, so she is going to make the strands longer for me.
UPDATE AGAIN: so im not going to wear the above jewelry. I love it, but i really dont think it will go with my dress. I may be selling these items so stay tuned. Here is the earrings and bracelet i bought from Whiteaisle.com. I love these!
UPDATE AGAIN!!! Yes im so indecisive when it comes to jewelry, but i was able to score a Dana Saylor bracelet for a great steal! So of course i had to snatch it up. Its gorgeous!!
I am still contemplating getting one. I guess I better hurry up with a decision. Im not sure how the weather will be in Detroit but its best to be prepared. If anything, to take some cute pics with it! Check out my pic inspiration!
some styles ive been eyeing!
I purchased the fur wrap on the right through ebay. Now i just have to get a pretty brooch or pin. I figure it will be cool weather by the time we leave the venue!
THE LITTLE PEOPLE
So i have two flowergirls and two ringbearers. My fg's are 3 and 5 (my second cousins), my ringbearer is 5 (my 2nd cousin) and will be 2. So i had the ringbearer pillows made by a seller on ebay two for $20!! She did an 8x8 and a tiny 4x4 for our little man, i think his hands will be enough to hold the pillow. lol. The 2 year old ringbearer is my FI nephew so he is adamant about him being in the wedding. Cross fingers that the 3 and 2 yr olds make it down the aisle!
I also got my flowergirls baskets together cost no more than $20. gotta love the knots trash to treasure board! there was no way i was going to spend more than $20 on a little basket! Ill put up pics of those soon maybe.
Flower girl Attire
So i havent bought any dresses yet, it wouldnt make any sense now because littles ones grow up so fast! I will probably wait around Augusts to get their dresses. I wanted to get either a goldish tone or brown colored dresses. Preferably with sleeves since it will be October for the wedding! Here are some cute ones ive run acrossed! I have no clue what the ring bearers will wear! Partly because this is the FI area (cross fingers).
Update: I think i love the dress at the bottom. I want to add red roses to the back like the dress on the far right to add in our accent color which is red.
Alright, due to cost reasons we are now doing a gold dress from ebay thats only $15!! I will update with pics later!
