Another productive day

I went down today with bms in tow so they could try their dresses. Man, do they look great! The colour is excellent, such a springlike shade, but nice and bold, and suits them both so well. Once they have had a few final adjustments, they will be done

While we were at the shop (because they are so helpful) I thought I'd have a look at veils and hair pieces. It's all very well trawling the internet for these things but it is very difficult to imagine what they might feel like on, as they are not things I am used to wearing.

I tried about 10 veils, all different lengths and with different edges and detailing. I have gone for a wrist length ivory veil with pearls through it. I didn't go for one with a heavy edge as it would distract from the dress, and it appeared to blend in better rather than be the feature in itself. The pearls just add a bit of 'special' without being too blingy. Plus they will go with my great-grandma's pearls I am borrowing from my mum for the day.

Once I tried this I had to try on some hair pieces just to complete my outfit. I had said no to a tiara from day 1, but the hairband type pieces just didn't look obvious enough. The one I have gone for is a bit like this...

It was really nice for mum that the ladies in the shop complemented my dress. She has been expressing concerns that people will think it looks 'too homemade', much to our protestations, but I think this has sorted her out now!

We got a load of extra fabric just in case, so we are going to make ruche ties for the guys. The ties they have ordered are really not going to match, or they are going to look too green (which would never do, football-wise!). Another fun task for the week before the wedding.

I also popped to the jewellers and he said our rings will be ready next week.

After that I had a make up trial, and so did sis and mum. I'll write more about that tomorrow.

The only annoyance today was further issues with printing (now jam jar labels), that's the most frustrating bit, but I'll get it sorted eventually. It meant I didn't get to finish the favours, looks like I will be doing this later.
