- Wedding: June 2013
Ok Bees, this will be a long one. Thanks in advance for hanging in there. Pretty pictures should make it worth your while. (Sorry in advance to those of you who have seen these a million times. Big thanks for your patience, as I am sure that everyone I know in real life is sick of me.)
My wedding is just under one month away (6.28) and I still have NO IDEA what to wear.
My dress is this:
I am having an overskirt made in a pretty off-white chiffon, that will look like this when it is done. I will wear it for part of the wedding, and take it off and party down in my pretty (sexy) dress above.
ETA: I will be getting/making a blingy sash to wear with the skirt/dress.
I originally wanted a headpiece from Doloris Petunia, but after thinking about it for about 3 days too long (a $400 purchase requires me to sleep on it for a day or two), my window of opportunity closed and she can no longer make it for me on time.
I’d lusted after this:
But both are a no go due to price and availability.
I spent hours (and a couple hundred dollars) hunting for crystals to try to diy it (I’m very crafty) and, well, that was a huge waste of time and $$$. I stink. I can’t do it. At least not with what I bought…
Both of these are very rough mockups (ie. not finished but put together to give myself an idea) and they just don’t seem to be working out.
Before I move onto hair and makeup, here is a picture of me at our city hall ceremony, for reference:
So…. these are some of the hair and makeup things that I pinned. I’m really not sure what I want in terms of hair piece, and I really can’t choose hair until I have that narrowed down. I would LOVE to wear my hair down, but I would definitely need extensions as my hair doesn’t really hold a curl well…
My question(s) are:
1. Should I give it another shot (maybe pick up some pre-made rhinestone trim and a couple of other things and have at it one more time)
2. Should I just go with something simple like combs and call it a day — maybe simple is better? I’m so freaking confused! (If I wear my hair down I don’t have any idea what kind of accessory would go…)
3. Should I wear a veil? Birdcage or cathedral or other? I like this birdcage because it has tulle and russian veiling, but I also really like the idea of a long veil with my flowy skirt…
I love this one:
Please help, and thanks for reading. Any suggestions/comments/weigh ins/advice would be SO appreciated.
