Handmade Birdcage Veil

I very nearly didn’t have a veil. I searched around for a cheap birdcage veil, decided I could make one much cheaper (can’t be that hard right?). It became one of those projects that kept getting pushed further and further back, until it was a few days before the wedding and I still hadn’t gotten […]

Bridal Crew

We couldn’t have asked for a better bridal party. My girls were a massive support for me in the leadup to the wedding, and got up at 5am for me on the day to start getting read (that is dedication). They also all managed to find their own yellow dresses, which was surprisingly difficult! A […]

Yellow Dresses

…seem to be everywhere this season! Where were they this time last year, when I told my bridesmaids they had to find their own (non-matching) yellow dress for the wedding? Luckily they did awesome and found fabulous dresses anyway. Real recaps coming soon!

If I was smarter…

…I would have gone for a nude/neutral colour scheme instead of yellow and grey. The colours are so lovely, and so easy to find in winter and spring. It would have been so easy! But I’m not sure we’re really a nude/blush people in the end.

Review: Shoes of Prey

Just going to preface this by saying I’m not receiving any kind of payment for this review – I contacted Shoes of Prey and asked them to mail me some shoes to review (and then return), and they were nice enough to do so. So this is 100% my real personal opinion and an item […]

Suiting Up

Today we took a look at suits! The Boy has two groomsmen (and two groomswomen, who will most likely be wearing dresses) so I tagged along to offer my opinion and they tried some things on. It’s so much easier for boys – we walked in, they tried on the one light grey suit they […]
