You all may think I'm crazy because i don't get to try on my dress until after the baby is born (ano...
thought I would share some pics
these are some of my non-professional pics, trying to get them all together now. I'll have more when my professionals come in. My wedding went like a dream, I didn't cry like I imagined in fact I burst into nervous laughter while my groom was saying his vows. Everybody was on cue everything ran smoothly couldn't ask for better weather, gotta say all in all my wedding was perfect in my opinion.
getting excited now because we are heading off to vegas for the honeymoon in the morning.
Its My Turn
Well girls my turn has come and I'm having a moment before I head off to the salon. We have beautiful weather for the day and I can't wait to walk down the aisle and become mrs. Walsh. Wish me luck , i'll be back with pics soon.
Wedding Hair Style
Hair and Make-up trial
had my make-up trial last nite and my hair trial today, wasn't fussy on my make-up, i think my eyes need less eyeshadow and more mascra for dramatic affect. she put eyeshadow right around my eyes almost made me look like I had two black eyes. she will do it differently on the wedding day though. Now, my hair I love it!!!!!! it looks awesome, now please excuse the roots, i need a touch up next weekend, and I have 20 inch extensions to add in on the day , but I just wanted to get the idea of what it would look like today. What do you ladies think?
had to have my dress altered slightly. Getting straps to keep everything from fallin out or flappin around..lol So getting straps, chest had to be taken in, had to be hemmed up (i'm pretty short) and bustle put in ..... I was so excited i love putting on my dress!! Lots of work on this dress but should have it back sometime this week.
can't wait till its all done and I get to wear it for the full day!!!
GOOD DEAL on Bridesmaids dresses
I am always shopping around for a good deal and I thought I should pass my findings on to you ladies.
I ordered my bridesmaid dresses on www.psbridalonline.com and have to say they came the other day and they are PERFECT. Cheaper then ordering them from a bridal salon and from the orignial designer not a knockoff. oh and even though it is in the name the dresses are available in all sizes not just plus size.
Thought some ladies out there might like a good deal as I do.
check it out!!
Invitations and Jackets
I have been working on these for a while now very tedtious, but worth it i think it adds a special touch.
I also finished my menu cards, i think they turned out pretty good ....what do you ladies think??
wedding flowers etc
I have a complete set of wedding flowers, which include 1 brides bouquet(white and turquoise) , 2 bridesmaids bouquets(pink), 4 groomsmen boutineers(pink) 1 grooms bout (turquoise), 5 other bouts(white), 3 mothers corsages (turquoise & white), 2 Grandmothers corsages (pink and white), and a set of 12 turqoise pew bows. Also 6 meters of pool colored taffeta, enough to make two plus size bridesmaids dresses, compliments the flowers really well. As well I will throw in a flower girl basket and 1 spool of turquoise ribbon. $150 takes all, including shipping.
I never used these, had these come from an ebay seller, but I have changed my color and now they don't match.
This could be one stop shopping for one of you fellow blue brides!!!
I would consider selling items seperatly but prefer all together for ease of shipping
figured I would do this too!
