More on the Name Game

There seems to be a bit of discussion about the name changing thing recently, and it’s made me think about it a little more. Last time I wrote about the name thing I was reluctant to change my name because of my business and simply not liking the way my name sounds with his, but […]

I want to walk down the isle in a rediculously devine wedding in a forrest

I know people often don’t bother to make sure they spell correctly on forums or blogs but… Doesn’t anyone notice this? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills! If you’re talking about the thing with trees, it’s a forest, not a forrest. The price of a wedding cake is ridiculous, not rediculous, rediculus or redikulous. […]

Romantic Dresses

I’ve seen the Saja dresses around for a while, but didn’t realise they also did short (okay, bridesmaids) dresses in the same styles until I saw a post about them on Another Damn Wedding. I love how soft and romantic their collection is. On the other hand, maybe it’s a bit too soft and romantic […]

From my understanding printing with letterpress is a time consuming and labour intensive process, requiring a lot of specialised skills and […]

On ‘First Looks’

So we’ve decided to do our photos before the ceremony rather than after, starting with a bit of a private moment where The Boy and I can see each other for the first time on the day, something called a ‘first look’ or ‘first glimpse’. Since our ceremony will be before lunch it’s going to […]

Photographer Booked!

Holy crap guys, things are starting to move! I know it’s possibly a little early to start booking things, but since we’ve decided on a date in early October, which is the most popular month for weddings, I want to make sure I don’t miss out. I also don’t see the point in putting things […]

More DIY Photobooth Backdrop Ideas

Speaking of photobooth backdrops, there’s some super cool ideas here that could look awesome on it. I already mentioned liking the look of book pages pasted onto a wall which is described here; I’m also really liking the idea of sticking fabric to the wall with a cornstarch paste mixture which lets you easily remove […]

‘Photobooth’ Backdrops

I wonder if I could talk my dad into making me one of these? The tutorial for it on Ruffled doesn’t look too difficult. Except with a less floral wallpaper – maybe something like this? Most mentions of backdrops I’ve seen suggest taping it to a wall, but this seems like a more elegant solution […]
