the real kicker is that the dress i want most at this moment is this one from fleur wood:
and it's sold out.
so this morning i bought this dress from etsy (click to enlarge):
i really wanted this one from shripton couture because it's daisy-like but dressier... but, wouldn't ya know it, it too is sold out:
(this one has amazing details so if you have time click the link to see the other pics of it)
i am thinking that i could do a bit more of a yellow color scheme and that the daisy dress can be both country AND mod if done right.... i'm thinking of super cute pics on my vespa and standing outside a barn... and if i don't wear it for the big day i know i'll wear it sometime cause it's just so damn cute! TOTALLY DIFFERENT from the first i know, but that's because i can be any kind of gal on any given day so i like all of these styles. how will i ever choose?!
i've been obessed with a mountain bride and snipet and ink these days. amazing sources of inspiration! it's like amazing stylish women did all the legwork for me and found all the best stuff on the internet :)
in good news:
last night p and i went to his mom's to begin making our invite list and it is not as bad as i originally thought. it looks like maybe we can invite everyone we really wanted to without going coo-coo-crazy. she was great about everything.
one of my clients has a farm about an hour and a half south of us that she has offered for us to use for free for the big day!!!! AND... it has a chapel built in 1890 on the property!!!! we are going to drive down there to check it out this saturday so cross your fingers that it is just what we are looking for so we can get the locale nailed down. once we do, it will then determine a lot more about the # of invites, the theme/feel of the day and even the food and decorating decisions. oh gee, i hope it's what i'm imagining... or at least workable!
and lastly, i have gone berzerk at the thrift.
this is just the very tip of a very large iceberg.
i stocked up on jars a plenty to make lanterns out of.
and glass canisters to serve vintage style candies in.
and an old school desk so i can totally rip off this idea:
and vintage sheets to use as the backdrops for photos or for tablecloths!
my sweet ellie was kind enough to soak all of the jars, peel off all the thrift store stickers, AND wash them all by hand!
she is a gift from the heavens i tell ya! :) THANKS E! YOU RULE BY MAKING MY LIFE SO MUCH EASIER!
