I found it quite funny this week when my dad gave me some information on weddings in Gretna Green, in case we wanted to elope!

It wouldn't be a wedding in either of our families if someone didn't suggest eloping, but luckily I know he's just being amusing. It definitely appealed to my sense of humour!

I've still got no idea where he got the info from, and how much effort he went to to source it

Inspiration boards 2

I was playing around on Style me pretty's inspiration board maker, having joined the Circle.
I'm quite happy with it, although I could do with changing the colour of the bunting.

Inspiration boards

There seem to be more and more tools for aiding with making inspiration boards, especially useful if you don't have access to or the skills to use photoshop or similar.

First up, Dessy have just released their tool based on Pantone colours. It seems to have a few bugs just now but it is useful if you are trying to select bridesmaid stuff based on colour.

Style me pretty have got their new tool too, which has produced some great boards so far. I'm just in the process of making my first ones.

If you want to start from scratch the mosaic makers at big huge labs makes it nice and simple, but it only works with flickr pics unless you sign up

Photographer: check

We met our photographer on Thursday. After a couple of weeks of trying to arrange a meeting, we finally sorted it out and it's all good.

I've said before about how we are not too bothered about the photography element of the day, but understand that it will be regretted if we don't get it. We also don't want any photography in the church (I don;t think they allow it anyway). We don't want prints or an album, just the images so we can do what we want with them.

It may seem like we're being a bit picky, but it's a lot of money to spend if it's something your heart is not in! Our photographer seems to completely understand. He's nice and laid back, very friendly, doesn't like doing formal photos, is creative, and loves working at our venue.

Oh, J!

My J is being wonderful - on Saturday he went to the department store off his own back to ask about suit hire!

He is also spending a lot of time at the moment organising our minimoon (our few days break in the UK straight after the wedding) and the honeymoon (our proper holiday later in the year).

He is also doing a wonderful job at keeping me sane

Vera Wang - part 3

After the early interest in Vera Wang (well, who couldn't be interested in her dresses), on Saturday I went to the Vera Wang boutique in London with my chief bridesmaid.

Oh, the dresses are beautiful!

Put any of them on and you will feel fabulous, because of the quality of the dresses. But it was obviously still important that I felt like me. It was nice not to be under any pressure as I was only really there for the fun of it and for ideas.

This is the one that really got me - enough to make me try it on twice. I'm showing you the back because the detailing is especially nice. It is quite a plain dress, no sparkle, no lace, i.e. perfect for me, but it has enough of something to make it interesting.
I also enjoyed the fact that the stock shoes they had were Jimmy Choos! They were comfy too, which was doing its bit to try to persuade me that they were something I could maybe invest in for the big day - we'll see!

I tried these two as well; the proper princessy one was great to wear but in the end wasn't really me, but the criss-crossy one was a really nice shape and unusual. It had a bit more wow about it without being too much.

I found the images on google, I guess it was from Vera Wang at some point in its history
