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!

Lucky Type

A few weeks ago I met up with my friend Miss K for cake and to give her the paper to print my invitations on. I got there a little early and wandered around a bit beforehand, and came across a little ‘pop-up shop‘ with some secondhand and vintage bits and pieces. In there I […]

Walking on Sunshine

I’m still waiting on my yellow heels from Shoes of Prey with my fingers crossed that they’ll actually fit me, but in the meantime I’ve been hunting for some appropriate ballet flats to wear at the reception. I wear heels for maybe a couple of hours every few weeks at most – I live in […]

Invitations, check.

180 invitees. 90 printed invitations. 4 printed pieces to each invitation (invite, map, gifts, address sticker). 1440 hand-cut rounded corners. ~8 solid hours of cutting, sticking, assembling, stuffing and checking. I don’t even want to think about the number of hours spent designing and sketching that went into it beforehand. Big thanks to Miss K […]

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.

Chrysanthemum and Chamomile, and other lovely things

About time for a post with some actual pictures! Flowers have never been a particularly big thing for me. I buy the occasional bunch of flowers to decorate our apartment when the mood strikes, but that’s about as far as it goes. I don’t even really like to grow flowers – I prefer things I […]

Vote for me?

A few weeks ago I entered a competition on Polka Dot Bride to win a Henry Roth wedding dress – and the voting has just begun! The entry involved something that I’ve been doing a lot of anyway – making an inspiration board for my wedding! Pulling back my ideas to a chic city wedding […]

Total Bridesmaid Mismatch

I took this photo at Floriade today, and I’m sort of enamoured with the colours. Obviously they’re a bit strong and girly on their own, but used sparingly with some white/cream/beige/brown/grey neutrals I think it could look really pretty. I’ve looking at bridal party photos recently, and after seeing a few I’ve decided that having […]

Pink Lemonade

Um. So yes, I’ve changed my mind on colours again. And it probably won’t be the last time. But anyway, I call this one “Pink Lemonade Happy Funfun Awesome Times”, and it is fairly similar to the last mood board that I posted with the addition of a delicious watermelon pink. Despite being one of […]

Colourful Tables

Really loving the look of this yellow and grey wedding, especially their tables. Having non-white table linens adds so much personality! I don’t think this combo of grey tablecloths and yellow napkins will work for my ‘heritage’ coloured venue though, and hiring it all is an extra cost I really don’t need. I could probably […]
