On top of that I don't know if I mentioned it but Kevin's computer got fried from a power surge we had a couple weeks ago. So we are in the dark ages.
So instead of an outfit I'm posting some inspiration for weddings, since I'm newly engaged. We haven't decided on when yet but it's always fun to gather things.
Well I'm not going to show my actual dream dress cause someone looks at this blog too much :) But here are some things I love, and are WAY too expensive.
Another thing, I tried on my grandma's and my mom's wedding dresses, and boy was a depressed about it. See they were both pear shaped, small shoulders and big butts, but if you've noticed I have very large shoulders. Kevin says they are swimmers shoulders. And when trying on their dresses my thought was confirmed, my rib cage is about 5inched bigger then my grandma's and 3 inches bigger then my mom's, this is the case with most all vintage I try on. I have found that I'm probably going to have to go with a low back, which is fine cause I love them... But yeah my shoulders and rib cage can't fit into most cuts... grrr. Why must things be made for petite shoulders? Oh well onward.
Of course I love love Vera Wang, she knows how to manipulate fabric so well... And I love the ivy crowns they have, that is a def for me. I want to be like Titania from a Midsummers Night Dream, hehe.. I'm totally growing out my bangs too, cause I want long fairy hair :)
So I've been scouring OnceWed.com and theKnot.com to get ideas for dresses and prices... Any other places I should look?
You may not know this but I'm pretty crafty. So I'm probably going to make a lot of my things, mainly the ring pillow. I've made them before and will probably be making them and selling them on etsy soon. Here's one I did for a friends wedding. We used scraps of fabric that matched her wedding party then I made little roses out of felt. What do you think?
If you know anyone getting married I can do commissions of ring pillows too! I need to earn some more wedding money, haha!
