Wedding Update



It's apparently 101 days until our wedding according to my countdown on Facebook. This concerns me and excites me too! I thought it was time for a bit of an update.

At the moment I'm focusing on wedding invitations and other stationery. I have a vague idea of what it's going to look like and we are working on it this weekend sometime. Amongst going for a beach trip, a birthday and work.

I have bought my wedding dress. It's all paid for and hanging up here at home but still needs the hem to be taken up which I will be getting done next week. I tried it on in the shop and the fit is perfect. I was by myself when I picked it up so no one besides the sales girls have seen it on in the right size (the one in the shop was absolutely huge, they had to hold it up for me) I also realise that I haven't bought a veil yet. So I will be going back to that wedding shop to find one.

I have finally found my bridesmaid dresses after changing my mind so many times. I decided to go with the same dress style but different colours. There will be 2 in pale pink, 2 in lilac and 1 in aqua blue. Here are my iPhone photos of the dresses (lilac and aqua) and Laura's beautiful shots of the pink one.

The lilac dress.

Modeled by Laura. I didn't actually cut her head out I was trying to get the whole dress in the pic. This colour is for my matron of honour Liz.

This is the pink dress. I decided to have the three colours because I really loved the dress. It's sort of a Grecian style as well.

I was thinking of having a flower or some type of brooch for each girl. These are a few ideas. All flowers from Diva, except the top right from Equip. I'm going to check Etsy too.

There will be another update soon about Honeymoon and lots of other things.

P.S. I'm going to be on Diamonds in the Rough blog tomorrow! And thanks for your trip opinions =) More about that another time.

Eeeep! Love love love those dresses and their pretty colours! Aqua blue... lovely. :)

So soon, so soon! I'm excited for youuuu! And it sounds like you're gonna have a busy weekend. Have fun, my dear! xx

p/s: the flower you've seen clipped on my hair in photos is from Diva, tooh! it was initially a brooch. i took off the pin and glued on my own hair bobble so it would become a hair slide. hehe.

Those dresses are gorgeous, Gracie. Where did you get them? I am looking for a dress to wear to a wedding and they are such a lovely style...

Gracie said...

Thanks all the comments ladies!

@ Julia - Fantastic idea! I will be doing that I'm sure with the flowers for the dresses

@ NeverEverEmma - The dresses are from Forever New. Though not sure if there are many left. We had a bit of trouble with some sizes.

Hey chica! I think it's gonna look gorgeous when we're all together. And the whole different colour is not unheard of and could actually work really well -
