Veiled and other little things…

17 Feb

Hello all!

First and foremost, the thing which GP dislikes seeing in this blog:

GP, there will be talk of the dress, the veil, and some other accessories. Please do not read this post!!

I love you! ❤

 

Is he gone? Okay… now, onto the matter at hand…

I’ve talked to my dressmaker – Mandy – and we’ve officially chosen a month where the dress will commence becoming a sketch on a piece of paper to a full-fledged article of clothing. That month is April – as for day, we haven’t figured that out. We’re both still trying to work out bits and bobs on the dress, like the fact that we want to do something with the skirt for a potential dance we have in mind. GP gave me a wonderful idea, and I’ll have to address that with Mandy when I get the chance. I’ll also have to buy a petticoat, but I know where I can get one for relatively cheap (and it’s not a hoop petticoat as well – I wore one, I didn’t like it…).

Mandy has also stated that she’s happy to help me with my veil. She’s sent me a picture of a veil which she believes will work with the intricacies of the dress, and I must say – I LIKE. I’d put a picture up but… I’m a little bit worried that it’ll pop up when GP decides to click on the link… so if you guys are interested (and I know those on FB read this), shoot me a message and I’ll send you a picture 🙂

The veil will have a comb attached, so that means I don’t need to buy a brooch (or really, tell my friends that they need to rethink my 25th birthday idea…).

Needless to say, I’m uber excited about the whole thing and can’t WAIT to get this underway. I still need to lose a LOT of weight before I’m happy with where I am, but Grant and I are now going forward with our plans and hoping that nothing will interrupt (like a lot of things did last year…). I’ve been drinking so much water that I’m now sick of water… like seriously, SICK of water… but I know it’s good for me, so I’m forcing myself to do it.

As for the other little things, I’m musing what else to do to – as they say – “complete the look”. My “something borrowed” will be earrings and a necklace from my mum. I also want to wear a beautiful Swarovski bracelet I got from my fiance on our first anniversary. All these pieces of jewellery have red on them, so it’ll suit with the red lacing/ribbon that’ll be weaved through the corset. I haven’t really considered hair accessories – as I’ll be wearing a veil and have my hair in an up-down-hairdo – but I don’t think I’ll be wearing my veil ALL day. During the reception, I want to change out of the veil and into something else, but I’m not entirely sure what.

I’ve found two potential websites to look at: www.shopruche.com (which I’ve been stalking forever but haven’t personally bought anything from there – although my bridesmaids and GREATEST FRIEND IN THE WORLD A bought me a super cute bag there) and www.sugarblossom.com.au. They both have inexpensive bridal accessories.

I’m super excited now that everything seems so close to fruition. 🙂 Wish us luck guys!
