Posts Tagged ‘50s wedding’

My friends’ facebook newsfeeds, seem to be getting overtaken by wedding related posts, so i thought I’d give them all a break and *try* and only post wedding stuff here. I can hear my betrothed saying, ‘well why do you have to write about it anyway?’ but i’m sure you’ll all appreciate why I can’t not write about it.

Last weekend saw a trip to Birmingham, 4 different shops, about 40dresses and one very tired, deflated Ally at the end of the day. I didn’t find anything that I had in mind. There was one dress which was the right length and style, but wrong in so many ways, but I nearly bought it. I think it’s because it was the only one that fitted and was the right style, etc etc but i’m now so glad I didn’t get it. However, this unsuccessful trip saw me very stressed over Monday and Tuesday with trying to find something online. I was truly awful to be around. Took it all out on my poor T, but there was light at the end of the tunnel: we had our marriage prep on Monday evening, with 2 of our elders from church who are an amazing couple. We needed to pray about a few things and my dress became one of them. I then remembered something that i’d found on etsy ages ago but that didn’t quite look right at the time, however I looked again and had a whole new idea for the wedding, so i bought it! I really really really want to show you it, but I also want the surprise on the day so will hold off on the actual dress and the major accessory needed to be suitable, but I can give you a taste of the feel of the day, through the most scrumptious pair of shoes.

My mum, bought these shoes for me earlier this year with the wedding in mind and I customised them yesterday with a few things I found…..

The theme seems to have gone from fun, playful 50s to more vintage, elegant 50s. Which is absolutely fine as all the stuff already bought goes along with that perfectly, but there are a few changes I need to make.

One of these changes is something to do with doilies, so, along with the help of some lovely friends from the parenting forum Natural Mamas I am undertaking a rather mammoth doilie making task. Let the Crochet commence!!
