Something new

Our wedding is only a month and a half away - eeek.

The boy and I decided to make a few handmade items for the wedding, I still have to make the sashes for the flower girls dresses, but I have been making the ladies favours on and off for the last few months.  

We have designed, made and posted the invitations, the boy even managed to source some FSC sustainable card, and I think they are great.  

A wedding magazine said if a bride normally wears her hair down like I do then she should wear it down on her wedding day.  Well, I am ignoring that little piece of advice, I want to look different, polished and elegant like Reese Witherspoon, Kate Beckinsale and Angelina Jolie.  My hairdresser tried out 2 different styles, sorry, no pictures until after the wedding.

These are my shoes for the big day, aren't they pretty!  I visited them for a good year before purchasing them, you see, I normally wear flat shoes, like, everywhere... and they add a good three inches to my height, so I really need to a. learn to walk in them, and b. break them in.  
I do have a plan b for the evening - bare feet, perfect for dancing.

Sorry I can't share photos of everything I have made yet, many of my guests read this blog and I want a few things to be a surprise.

The shoes look so glamerous! I liked making my own invitations too. MIL wanted the silver on white sort from the printers but they look so impersonal.

Ooo one tip I was told- put your make up on in the same light levels that the photos are taken in.

I hope you get everything done in plenty of time so you have space to relax before the day.
