Our Wedding: The Dress

Well its only been a couple of years since I last updated this blog…! We have moved house form city to countryside and now have a little daughter who’s about to turn one in a couple of days and is the love of our lives. I’m a bit rusty so forgive any mistakes I make but thought that people might (finally) like to see more of the details of the wedding and whether the plans I made worked out. I’ll post separate posts about different aspects of the wedding over the next few weeks.

Starting with…the dress!

I loved my dress so much, what bride doesn’t? After trying on dozens of dresses and having much fun in the process, I finally settled on Maggie Sottero ‘Harlow’. It was strapless so as I mentioned earlier in the blog some adjustments had to be made but the corset was very flattering and the beading and lace was beautiful.

Our Wedding

WE’RE MARRIED!

Wow, what an amazing day it was – everything I had hoped it would be and more.

My husband and I (hehe!) are back from our honeymoon in Paris and now in the process of moving to our new home. In fact we’ve been so busy we haven’t even had time to look at the wedding photos yet! But we were sent this one so I thought I’d post it with more to come and details of the wedding once we’ve unpacked our boxes!

Hope all of you who are planning your own weddings are doing well x

Knocks Me Off My Feet

As the wedding looms closer these posts get more infrequent! Today’s my last day at work till after the honeymoon and I can’t wait to get into wedding mode!

Love this song and this amazing album. This would make a perfect first dance song.

Groom’s Wedding Ring

We’ve bought my fiancé’s ring!

We went ring hunting in Hatton Garden a street in London full of jewellery shops. I wasn’t prepared for how many there were (too much choice!) and how expensive they’d be! The key to buying jewellery there is not to be afraid to haggle. We knocked a third off the price of the ring we bought.

The Final Fitting of My Dress

Bit of a random picture taken with my mums phone when I wasn’t expecting it, but it shows how we adapted the side of front of the dress. If you have read my earlier posts here and here, you’ll know I was worried about an over abundance of boobage. No longer! The clever spaghetti straps pull the dress up and give more support but are made pretty and soft with lots of tulle to make a cap sleeve. We added ribbon to the top of the dress for more coverage and used the same colour satin that is under the bust of my dress so it looks as if it were mean to be there.

Haven’t put any other photos here as don’t want to give it ALL away (hehe!) but am so incredibly happy with my dress and all the alternations mean its beyond what I had imagined.

So don’t lose hope if your dress needs some tweeking! It’ll all work out in the end promise!

Love or Hate

I’m not sure what I think about these Christian Louboutin flat shoes. I’ve never been a fan of patent leather and these seem at times garish and then quite chic.

But one things for sure, if shoes could speak these would say ‘take me on honeymoon to Paris please’.
