- Wedding: January 2010
FI & I are doing a civil ceremony @ city hall in NYC the day before the “big wedding” – because the date has a special meaning to us. We’ll be heading to city hall with our immediate family members & then out for a late lunch/early dinner (which is also our RD, since the big wedding is the following day).
Here’s my inspiration board for the civil ceremony. It’s completely different colorscheme/vibe from the Big Wedding, which made it fun for me. 🙂
A few notes: I actually already purchased the cardigan – Loft has it in a very pale dove grey which is what I got, but it’s only in stores -not online.
I’m not a “bow” girl, so I actually removed the bow from the Urban Outfitters headband. It was hot-glued on, so there is still some hot glue left on the headband. I plan on getting a sparkly applique from the craft store to put on instead. I’ll post finished results someday!
I think the whole outfit comes out to about $132, which is great. Originally I was looking for “fancy” dresses at Saks, Bloomies, etc., but then I thought about it, and I will never ever wear a dressy white dress again… However, a knit, most definitely will get mileage.
Does anyone have some jewelery suggestions?
