Making Progress: Flower Girl Dress

I got my dress from David's Bridal and I bought what was as close to my dress as I could find for my daughter. Unforetunately, it was not 100% what I wanted and the pick-ups on the dress made her look like she was wearing a mushroom cloud. My dress has beautiful pick-ups with pearls and beads at each point so I wanted her's to at least have pick-ups like mine.

I added pearls from my dress extras that they included with my dress as the "just in case it's needed" ziploc. I had to order her dress larger than she is since she is not a toothpick and trimmed off a substantial amount so she could possibly walk in it.

Without further adieu...

Here is before

And Here is my daughter with the alterations...I still have to shorten the straps but you get the idea.

Another Great Deal

I found some more clearanced items and it kind of inspired me for the wedding some I ended up deciding on making CD's for everyone of "Our" songs. We really do have way more than one song in our relationship. We always have been very into music and dancing so it is really fitting for the wedding. I found these cute little box sets of Wedding CD labels, sleeves, and stickers for that finished look and I just couldn't help but to buy them at $5 for 25. I never pass up a deal, lol:) Plus I can't wait to start working on them. I have alot to do in 4 months....tick tock, tick tock, is getting louder every day. YIKES

Pre-Wedding Panic

I got my corset bra thingy and the thing to make my dress go poof...but I still don't know what it's called, lol. I am realizing that I am coming up on the 4 month mark and I have so much to do still that I am starting to panic a bit. I am a list maker by nature so I guess I will have to start making a list to feel better although I may feel more overwhelmed. So much to do and don't know where to start.

Bridal Wrist Cuffs

While I was clipping some birdcage netting one day, a small piece fell off and landed on my wrist and I thought to myself how cute it would be instead of wearing gloves that cover your ring finger to have a small piece of veiling with maybe a touch of punk.

So if anyone reads this and would like to add an opinion of yay or nah, feel free. I really enjoy the offbeat and those that stray from the norm. It gives me a chance to be creative and possibly come up with something that maybe, just maybe, somebody else hasn't.

I will probably be making more of these cuffs and maybe some not so bridal and maybe just fun since I really do enjoy that style.

I did some shopping through which had some good clearance as well. I picked up some dove printable wedding programs for $5 for 25.
