I´m searching for my civil wedding dress. I will wear a white short dress with pink shoes.
This is my first dress:
I bought these dress from ebay. I really like it, but it is a bit too dressy because after our wedding on friday we are having a bbq in the garden ... So I´ll send it back.
I decided to take this little dress (also from ebay) as my Civil Wedding Dress. Sorry for the messy dress-pics but as the dress arrived at my work I had to try it on immediately in the ladies room at work :D I have to iron it and buy a petticoat so the dress will look a lil bit more than the pic from ebay!
UPDATE May 1st 2011: Okaaaaaaaay, ok - NOW I´ve got my final wedding dress :)) It is from H&M.
I fell in love with birdcage veils!! These are all pictures from etsy. I will definitely wear my hair straight like the first picture. I LOVE THIS PIC!!
The last picture with the birdcage veil and fascinator are from Joanne - I love the style!
Here is my birdcage veil from etsy seller glamorbydesign. I have to find out how to wear the best!
I bought these fascinator from etsy seller EnchantedlyYours
I want to wear a bolero to my short dress because it is sleeveless. Here is my inspiration:
UPDATE July 8th 2011: I am so happy that I found these similar bolero on ebay!
BUT THE DRESS AND THE BOLERO ARE NOT HAVING THE SAME WHITE COLOUR!
Here is the whole outfit without my clutch and high heels. Can´t wait to wear this outfit on our big day although it is not 100 % suitable!
I would love to wear pink high heels, but this wouldn´match to our yellow theme. Now I´m thinking about to buy Christian Louboutin pumps like these ones :))
Silver and gold is a good choise cause my civil wedding dress is white and short.
Noooow I changed my mind and fell in love with this t-strap shoes. Aren´t they GORGEOUS?? So if anybody have a clue, where I can find a similar one, please pm ;)
I bought these gorgeous dusky pink/lila peeptoe pumps from Goertz (a big german shoe store company) for € 50. I love them! I think I will wear them together with a white short dress on the civil wedding day!
UPDATE April 15th 2011: Ay, I got my shoes for the BIG DAY: Badgley Mischka Women's Xavier Heel
I really love the Badgley Mischka shoes which I got to know through PW. All of them. But they are a little bit expensive and shipping from the US to Germany is expensive too (including tax).
Then I found a pair on amazon.co.uk for a really really good price - € 72 including shipping and tax ($ 103). The only problem was to choose the right size because of the exchange. Damn - I had the courage to buy them. And DAMN THEY FIT PERFECT!! :) I am so happy! Finally I got my wedding shoes. Here are some pics (sorry for the filler)!
UPDATE: June 9th 2011
Ok, I bought another pair of wedding shoes for the civil wedding: Badgley Mischka´s Owen!!!
I bought them on amazon.co.uk and they were sooo cheap!! I can´t believe it!!
My bridesmaids are still choosing her dresses. I guess they take yellow cocktail dresses. But it is difficult with six different type of girls and styles to choose the one dress. Probably we´ll take two different dresses so it will be a little bit easier.
I like these dresses:
Here are the first results :) We are searching for another dress... I think they are all looking great!
UPDATE: Today (March 4th 2011) we have chosen the bridesmaids dresses! WOOHOO!
My MOH had the fabolous idea to bake fortune cookies for wedding favor and I really love this idea!
Ben and I have been thinking about a long time about the second gift. We´ve decided to take magnets with a picture and the wedding date on it.
Maybe like this :)
UPDATE May 21th 2011
We ordered the magnets from vistaprint. It say "I went to Sarahs & Benjamins wedding on July 30th 2011 and all I got was this lousy magnet"! :)
FI and I fell in love with pocketfold invitations. I ordered these online from pocketfoldinvites.co.uk. The colour is Pearl Metalic. We will use yellow background cards, grey and white invitations maps and a monogram to shut the invitation.
I will show a picture when I did my first invitation!
UPDATE: HERE THEY ARE! Last saturday (March 26th 2011) we sticked them on. I love them!
BUT we are having a big problem: We communicated a wrong date!! We have to print one sheet with the right time (3 pm!!) and paste them over ... ^_^
UPDATE UPDATE: AY, today (April 11th 2011) we got our first RSVPs!!!!!!!!!
This is my dear friend Johanna. She is my MOH. We met at the kindergarten :)
Here are my two little sisters Jasmin and Laura:
I´m really pleased that Bens sister Franziska is approved to be my bridesmaid!
My favourite cousin Nadine (left) didn´t like the idea to be my bridesmaids but SHE HAS TO!! :) She is afraid to look bad in the trashy dress... As if I would choice trashy dresses!!
And the 7th girl is my friend Natalija. We met at school!
I never thought that I will have 6 bridesmaids - but I got :)
HERE ARE THE GIRLS!
Oh and don´t forget the BOYS :)
