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!

garter

Some of the nicest wedding garters I’ve seen have come from Agent Provocateur. I particularly like the prettiness of this one called Cynthia. But somebody told me it was unlucky to buy your own garter for your wedding and that your bridesmaid had to do it. I’ll be emailing her over the link to the Agent Provocateur website pronto!

Wow, time has gone so quickly! Its seems only yesterday that we were celebrating being engaged. Now its three months to go and still lots to organise: have to book florist, band, send out invites, buy rings, arrange transport and so on. AND find a house for us to move into after the wedding! Phew, I feel as bewildered as the little girl in the photo sometimes but its always fun.

Today I had a call from the bridal shop to say my dress had been delivered! Can’t wait to try it on again. That’ll definitely be the first item on my list of things to do.

Ready. Steady. Go!

My future mum-in-law is amazing. Not only is she making our wedding cake, she’s also making me a wedding coat. She received the pattern from America a while back and after a few adjustments, she’s finished the mock-up of the top half of the coat. It fits like a dream – its such a pleasure and privilege having a piece of clothing made-to-measure. I can’t wait till we go shopping for the coat fabric and buttons.

She also made her beautiful medieval-inspired wedding dress herself which sits in a glass cabinet in the hallway of my fiancé’s parents home.

Woooooo-Hooooooooo! My fiancé and I found a groom’s outfit we both love! This was no easy task I can tell you. We just couldn’t agree on what looked best. Then we came across across this photo and both of us thought it was perfect. After a bit of hunting I found out that the suit is made by German company Wilvorst. We went to a London shop that stocks the suits to try one on and it looked great. The only thing left to do is pick out a fabric for the waistcoat and voilà – one perfectly suited groom!

I’ve found the bridesmaids dresses! And surprisingly without effort. I was hunting around for a suitable dress for the next three weddings I have to go to and I came across the perfect bridesmaid dress in Coast.

It’s a relief as most of the bridemaids dresses I’ve seen have been all too…bridesmaidy. This is long, sexy and the right shade of blue. My two oldest friends from Secondary (High) School are my bridesmaids. They’re going to look gorgeous!
