- Wedding: August 2013
Last night I stayed up much too late working on my crinoline.
Yes, I decided to sew my crinoline by hand. BY HAND. I don’t know what the hell I was thinking. I’ve been working on it on and off for months and last night I finished the last layer! Now I just have to do the waist band and closure! I LOVE how it tuned out! It’s just the right amoun of poof!
Sorry for the bad pic. It was very late last night!
Also loving my cats butt there! And speaking of Chibi, as soon as i took it off and went to grab my dress I came back to this!
She can’t handle not being involved in everything I do!
Anywho, moving on. I wanted to see how it looked under my dress, but it was midnight and i was all alone, (Fi was working a graveyard shift) but i decided what the hell and slipped my dress on anyways. So it’s not laced up here, but it’s the first time I’ve tried it on since last year and I fell in love all over again.
I wish I had a bigger mirror! Rawr!!
I’m less than three months away and I still can’t decide if i need a pink satin sash with a bow on the back. I want one but i haven’t found anything like it so I sort of pushed it out of my mind, but now I’m thinking i really want one!
What do you guys think? Add a satin sash? Or leave it as is?
Another thing I’m ABSOLUTLEY in LOVE/LUST with are my shoes. I was originally going to go with flats. (which i show here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/ceremony-flats-impulse-buy-or-lucky-find#axzz2VMinKkE3)
But when i tried them on with my dress it was too long and dragged on the floor so I knew I needed a bit of a heel. So then I found these:
They are so PUUURRFECT! They tie right into the colours too as FI is wearing a grey tux and pink is one of my wedding colours. That pink in the shoes is a little on the coral side but that’s ok! I have almost every shade of pink in my wedding so it’ll be fine!
And the last thing I’m stoked about is this:
Picked it up at Michael’s with a 50% off coupon! I was stoked to see them cause it’s a new item for the Michael’s where I live. (Yes, i have their stock memorized ~_~) My FI saw them and asked what it was. When i explained they go on the bottoms of the my shoes, he looked at me like I was crazy! I always forget he hasn’t obsessivley looked at wedding blogs/sites/pinterest the way I have over the last year.
Oh! I lied, there’s one more thing I’m SUPER excited about!
I ordered a retro-kini online a few weeks ago for my honeymoon and it arrived yesterday! (You might have seen my post about it in Full Figure a few weeks back). Anyways, I was so worried I had built it up in my head that when I tied it on I’d feel aweful and hate it. But my fears were all for naught because I felt like a MILLION BUCKS! No matter the shape, the size, the color, LOVE YOUR BODY!
So all in all, it’s been a super awesome and productive wedding week!
PS. I also mailed off all my invites this Monday! YAY! Another thing to relax about!
PPS. Oh, and I also rented my cupcake stands! Which I was freaking out about because I live on an island and there’s so little choice here. Were going with mismatched porceline stands like the ones seen here. So it’s even more of a productive wedding week and it’s only Wed!
What about you guys? What have you accomplished this week?
