Most.Gorgeous.Dress.EVER! <3

HELLO THURSDAY!!!!!!

Today will be a very short post. i just couldn’t resist sharing this amazingness with you!
I am in love with this dress.
I am so in love with this dress that I am pretty sure I would wear it to take my children to school. At least one of them is young enough to think his mommy was a princess. Haha!

Every girl should find their dream dress…wish I would’ve found this one before I got married! 😉

Have a perfectly fabulous Thursday!!!

The princess bride….

Do you remember that movie?  I sure do!

I received an e-mail from Etsy and that was the subject line “The princess Bride” so of course I had to open it immediately!  🙂

Well…there were no pictures of Westley, Inigo Montoya, Prince Humperdinck (<- I know, right?!?!?!), or sweet sweet Buttercup.

There were however some gorgeous pictures of wedding dresses and accessories inspired by Grace Kelly, who can only be described as classically elegant.

We’ll start with this vintage inspired head piece with crystals and pearls.  Simple and elegant.

This veil is definitely meant for a princess…and isn’t every bride a princess on their wedding day?

This dress is stunning!  And for the record, I could definitely picture this on Buttercup!!!

I think I may have to watch Princess Bride tonight!  Or perhaps To Catch a Thief?

Have a fabulous Thursday!

Real Wedding – Matt and Allie

Happy Wedding Wednesday!!!!

So, I posted a little sneak peek on Friday about Matt and Allie’s wedding and I was supposed to post this Monday!  Things were just a little crazy and I am late (TERRIBLE ME!).  I am terribly excited about this one though.  I loved working with Allie and her mom and I feel extremely lucky to have played a small part in her day!

Her ceremony and reception were both held on her parents property in Listowel, Ontario.  Here is a picture of the gorgeous bride and her handsome groom.

Allie wanted her guests to have fan programs, which were designed to match her invitations with the pink and damask design.  Love this picture of the bride and groom during the ceremony in the background!

This is by far my favourite picture of the bride and groom.  Maybe it’s the awesome truck they’re sitting on, maybe it’s the fact that I can see Allie’s amazing shoes in this picture, either way I LOVE IT!

All of Allie’s decor was designed to match her damask and pink theme.  When we first met, she had a vision for all of her stationery, which I was able to pull into all of her stationery….from the programs, to the signs for the candy bar, barrel of water bottles, and flip flop barrel(not pictured), to the thank you tags which sat on the rim of the wine glass favours at each guests seat.  One of my personal favourites was the seating chart, which Allie asked me to make round (like the tables) to be mounted on the antique mirror below.

***Don’t you just LOVE the lounge area???????

Here are a few of the bridal party…don’t you love the vintage chic feel of this whole wedding?????

This candy bar is definitely something after my own heart….think jelly bellies, candy floss sweet whirls, cherry rock candy, chocolate hearts.  Well, you get the picture!

Hope you’re having a fabulous Wednesday!

DIY with doilies – Vintage wedding style

Happy Friday!!

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog about crafts with doilies and I was totally amazed with some of the things I found so I thought I would bring it back a second time!

I mean, who knew there were SO many things you could do with these little treasures?!  I certainly didn’t.  I thought these were just things my grandma used under the candy dish!

The things you can do with doilies are close to endless and if you’re having a wedding with a vintage feel, these are definitely for you!

These doily inner envelopes will certainly give your guests a feel of what to expect at your wedding.

These programs are cute and most important an easy DIY project!
