We've knocked over most of the big ones like date, style, venue, bridal party (or lack thereof).
After seeing so many possible combinations of things to have at our wedding I knew I needed some help.
I just has sooo many ideas and knew that all of them together would just to be too much, let alone me trying to manage it all now my new job has be working 10hr+ days.
And because I feel rather strongly about everything matching and fitting together I was running in circles trying to make it work.
I've been fortunate to find some sweet suppliers that are helping reign my florid ideas in and keep me to the original plan. So I thought I'd give some shout outs to the people who have the goods...(forgive me if I come over all bridal, normal programming will return after August 30)
- One of the first things I found was my dress and it was one of the first I tried on (isn't it always the way). I knew I was never a poofy dress kind of girl so it was refreshing to find minimal yet decorative styles with nod to years gone past. The lovely Shangying from Halcyon Collections is taking care of the frock for me from her St Tropez collection.
- I also knew a long veil wasn't going to do the trick and that I wanted something cute/retro, big love to Sandie at Sandie Bizy's Hats & Vintage Apart from being a cracking milliner Sandie has the most fabulous eye for vintage frocks and fashion. My aunt, cousin and I have all played dress-ups there and been seduced by her treasures.
- I dithered long and hard on colour and motif and reading too many bridal style blogs doesn't help either. This is where Alicia from Form Over Function has started to help. She found this endpaper from a book binders, it ties in nicely with the style of my dress, the venue and our 40's theming.
