In the previous posts, Part 1 shows our planning beginnings, and Part 2 goes into reception decoration.
Part 3 will go into a little bit of the attire.
I like fascinators and fancy barrettes, so I thought I would try my hand at making something for my BM and my MOH. I started with some craft feathers, a couple of inexpensive clips, and some Value Village jewelry.
This is what I ended up with for my girls. I think it turned out pretty well!
Can I also add that my BMs were the absolute bestest too! I really couldn't have had a better day, and it has an awful lot to do with them.
and a mini veil for me too... which I ended up cutting down significantly in the end.
ya, I may be a little sun-burned in this photo - shut up! LOL
(As some of you know, I have a black thumb - so I didn't feel right about having flowers at the wedding - I felt like a fraud - A fraud, I tell you!)
The answer came when I was shoe shopping one day. I found these great yellow clutches. Certainly plain enough for the girls to use again, but it was exactly what I needed for that pop of colour.
For my outfit, I had only the finest jewelry... Bahahaha!
And these cool leather half gloves, which I also bought for each of my girls.
My dress came with a matching shawl, which I could never see myself actually wearing. So I made something I could possibly use.
First, I cut a section off that would be used as a tie.
I sewed both the large portion of the shall, and the tie. Then I had a drink. All sewing projects should be accompanied by some sort of alcohol.
I pinned the large portion into folds to create ruffles.
Oh ya, then I added a fabric floret with the leftover fabric.
I never did wear this at my wedding, at least I have worn it though, which is more than it would have been as a shawl.
