--- don't worry, if you're looking for all the dresses that didn't make the cut (previous bio entry "dress chronicles") they're still in my photos! but since MY dress' construction is fully underway, I think she deserves her own spotlight ;) ---
milly bridal - I LOVE YOU
10/16 "Test Dress"
AAAHHHHH!!! i'm so excited it looks freakin awesome! just a few minor changes, but i'm 100% confident in this dress! eeek!
and the REAL DEAL!
i love it sooooooooooo much! it's a little bit big, but easy fix! i'm so pumped, they did a GREAT job! the quality
i literally can't get the whole train in one picture by myself!!
UPDATE: after my 2nd fitting!! omg, i am so drop dead madly in love (does that even make sense?!?) with my dress! my aunt did an amazing job! we decided to add some pleated peaking crinoline to the front to spice it up an edge it out a bit ;) can't wait eeek!
making fun of how much crinoline is under it! i've been called a "crin-aholic"...but i lovee it
triple french bustle with about 50 points!! LOL
im so SO happy! i wanted sparklers so badly but thought for sure our venue wouldn't allow it...but they do!! woot! anyone know the best place to buy 36"ers?!
update!! 2.12 just purchased my sparklers from www.sayanythingceramics.com i can't wait!!
FINALLY!! BM dresses are ordered! I LOVE them! They're so different, but classy! I love the pattern, and it's still not TOO much to be distracting, ya know? SO happy. and I found them at Dillards! So they'll be here in a week, none of that waiting for three months business :)
the colors are much brighter in person! i was happily surprised, because I was afraid it might look too fall...but they're seriously perfect! there's even some purple in them! and they're not actually that low, the one i ordered was just way too big for me! i'm so happy :)
hair flower for the MOH:
DIY bm bouquets:
danny and the guys:
thanks to HMM having awesome taste :) ours will be just like this, only merlot ties!!
UPDATE: We are in progress of making our numbers now!! Here's a preview and the process-
every last crystal!!
Alrighty, here's my inspiration:
I ordered these wooden numbers from crafty eddy for only $2 a digit (including shipping and no tax!!) sweet. They should get here early next week, then off to Michael's to get some rhinestones :)
UPDATE! just ordered the first one below in large magnets from vistaprint! we decided to go with the first one since someone told me the second looked like we just got done "doin the dirty!"! now that's all i think when i look at it ;) but i still love it, maybe just not for our save the dates lol
some drafts! still undecided
ready to send em out!!
Update 1/22 Got my veil!
i'm adding just a little more poof to it, but then we're set!
instead of buying a hair flower for forty bucks, i made one myself for five! just bought the flower i wanted from michaels and glued an alligator clip on the back ;)
you can kinda see it here!
55555; -webkit-border-horizontal-spacing: 2px; -webkit-border-vertical-spacing: 2px;">Like pretty much everything with this wedding, I couldn't find exactly what I wanted when it came to my garter...so I customized my own! With the help of peterene on etsy, it'll look like this :
Keepsake Garter: Just like this:
only with a MUCH larger center flower, like this:
and without the fringe. But I LOOOOOOVE the gun! Danny is becoming a police officer so this was PERFECT. i'm not too crazy about sports theme garters, but i really wanted something personalized for danny, so when i saw this i knew it was perfect, but with just a few tweaks =) There will also be lots of black flowers behind the flower, to add some drama!
The toss bouquet will look just like the other, only with the fringe and not the flowers. I'm PUMPED! Peterene was so easy to work with and SUPER fast in responding! I'm happy, and can't wait to receive it!!
Bachelorette Party Dress:
kinda hard to see, but there's pink ruffles all down the front =) from bcbg
my fave <3 very pale pink, all ruffley goodness!! from express
