Well i married the man of my dreams in a perfect day
Ill upload some pro shots if anyone wants to see the full shots pm me and i shall send the details
So i work with Sarah ( she was a joy to work with ) and this is what we came up with. Outer pockets hand design by myself all printing and cutting by FI
Out shopping with MOH and last shop and least expected - Nice vintage feel - look gorgeous on
Hey ladies - i have not been on the boards in a while. Had a lot of health issue and lots of appointment at the GP and ENT clinics. Im feeling a little better now and back to planning the wedding.
We have finalised invite and have just to order out pocket sleeve materials with cards. Can i just take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to sarah ( signaturea by sarah) for the time, patience and amazing invites, my prayers go out to her at this time.
I ssooooo need to get a move on with DIYs,
Invites - So we have our inserts and a mock up of the out side of the pocket sleeve ( picture to come). Need to order pocket sleeves and cards - im finding it hard to find card i like at a reasonable price, i have expensive taste it seems. The outer cards will be stardream ameysthit a lovely purple colour with the inside being print on stardream quartz ( an off white colour with silver shimmer throughout). On the outer pocket with be a deeper purple ribbon then on top and ivory ribbon with hearts. Stick on pearl and bows also used throughout. Evening invitation will be the same design.
We have yet to design programs, menus, seat planner, place cards ( although i have an idea using shabby luggage tags), sweetie buffets tags. Im hoping sarah will be able to do this for us in the near future.
I have my cards box to do. We have purchased an old vintage suitcase (pictures to follow). So i need bunting and iron on letters for this - i am not diying this aspect but will be buying from ebay so semi diy. I have purchased the materials for hanging from the suitcase - various love hearts in lots of different fabrics.
My crafty eddy cake topper ( one of the first things i purchased still needs to be started).
I have enquired about paint and primer so just waiting back from that. Order my E6000 glue and just need to decide on what colour or rhinestones, silver or purple????
Wish tree and tags ( pictures to follow)
I purchased my wish tree which i love love love. I also purchased a little box which is used to hold the tags.
I will be half diying the tags the other i will be buying of esty when i finally decide my choices.
I purchased more luggage tags and a few cute stamps for my own diy tags ( pics to follow)
Jams jars - have collected enough now so they all need cleaned with ribbon, lace, twine etc. Flowers will be purchased on the wednesday and all jam jars asembeled. Some will have tealights and beads in them.
We have now officially paid off the wedding and honeymoon ( with a little spending £ saved)
Gifts have still to be purchased.
I have flowergirls necklaces - still need to diy there morning tshirts and get little teddies for them.
Bridesmaid - still need to buy there braclets - thomas sabo - but already have there charms. Got them their tote bags. Going to put together a lush set for them on the morning of the wedding and nice frame for them.
Will finish this section soon.
As always still collecting jams jar, tea cups and teapots.
I have soooo many hair and make up inspiration - if i need to give credit please tell me where is it due ( <<<<right clicky mad).
MAKE UP - I go between having a english rose look and a more smoky eye and soft lips. Either way i dont want to look caked in make up and want to feel like me. I love a red lip also but im going to keep this and do this in the evening. It also soooo expensive to get make up artist and i could do a prettu good job myself but i have oily skin so need to find a good foundation and skin routine before august.
MAKE UP INSPIRATION
Pop of colour on the eye and soft pretty lips
Again soft but with a pop on the eyes
I love this look - it says to me english rose although i cannot get away with a nude on my lips
I love love this smoky eye although i think it would be to much on me ( defo for pre wedding shot though)
My idol Carrie Underwood does tht pop of colour soooo well
another nice smoky a little to much bronzer for wedding day for me
Well yet another dilema - i fell in love with a dress bought it - fear it isnt the perfect colour and then fell in love with another one - i ask myself all the time - WHY DO YOU DO THIS...............
