More inspiraton

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Mine was great but busy. Got back from Bathurst Sunday morning and went straight to church. It was a nice relaxed day though having lunch with the fam. Although right now I'm a bit sick. It must be lack of sleep, busy weekend and the colder weather in Bathurst. It felt more like winter here in Brisbane instead of autumn. I don't think I was quite prepared to feel cold.

Anyway, while at home trying to get better I've been doing some Wedding planning. Since we don't quite know the venue yet I thought to gather more inspiration. I decided to start searching for wedding dresses. I think I'm a little picky though. I'm not into the big, princess like dresses though they look beautiful in photos, they're just not my style.

I quite like this style. One that sort of flows. I kind of like the layers flowing out.

This is from Disney Bridal. From the Princess Jasmine collection. It helps that she is my favourite Disney princess. I like this style. Sort of reminds me of a Grecian goddess.

Another from the Princess Jasmine collection. This one is a lot simpler too. Maybe change the neckline to be a more sweetheart style. 

I was thinking of making an inspiration board but I might do that next post. I did however want to share my tabletop letterpress. 

Here it is. I'm ashamed to say I haven't played around with it yet, but I will. I bought it from Bespoke Press. They were selling it off because they were getting a larger one and didn't have the room for it. It's basically a starter kit and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to buy it. I had to make the photo look old =) 

Here's one of the trays of type that was included. There's another tray as well. I definitely need to start playing around with it especially because I'm hoping to do letterpress our invitations. 

I hope you all have a great rest of week!

I agree with Paula...I am soooo jealous of your letter press machine! I have been wanting to learn how to use one for so long. That should be fun to experiment with. Also, all those dresses are really beautiful. It will be hard to pick just one...won't it!
