I have my dress, it's floor length white with lace over, corset back. Strapless. Very plain, fairly me given by a friend who was going to take it to the charity shop, I'll take it there once I've used it
Now I need all the bits to go with, and I have no idea where to look! Ideally I would like a teal 3/4 sleeve bolero, matching shoes and matching ties and/or waistcoats for DP and DS (20mo). Alternatively, I'll go for a white bolero with Irregular Choice shoes and the whole matchy matchy thing for DS and DP.
We were going to go for Easter next year but a friend has booked hers for then so we're going for October half term. That's 2014, btw Just waiting for the church to let me know when they can fit us in and I can sort the other stuff - this will be a very low-key wedding, btw, so all I need to do once I've got my date is book somewhere for a family lunch (or dinner depending on timing!)
I won't be doing bridesmaids and pageboys, if any kids want to they can wear something smart and trot up the aisle with me. Bouquet is going to be crochet flowers in teal and white, made by me and a group of friends then auctioned for charity. So I don't need to find all that kind of thing thankfully!
I've looked on John Lewis, M&S, BHS and Debenhams. What I think I need is one shop I can physically go to and pick out all the accessories in one hit, in matching colours/fabrics. Does that exist?
Probvably not Woolly but not sure I'm motivated enough - decent yarn would cost as much as just buying the damn stuff, if I can fine where from! Feel free to send me flowers for the bouquet though - are you in said fb group yet?
Thank you Tethers and Lucked those are the ones I found, but unfortunately out of stock in my size. BHS have all matching stuff on their website - including a lovely paisley waistcoat for the boys - but only in tiny and huge sizes. I'm a 12/14 and shoe size 6 so pretty average and therefore sold out. Do you think they'll have new stuff in soon, as they seem to be in the middle of a huge sale?
And why is this so hard? I'm planning the easiest wedding on the planet without ditching the entire family for a £50 cheapie down the registry office! Damn e thinking our families might like to come
That would solve a few problems, especially with the tight time frame, as then I just need matching DP and DS stuff which appears to be a little more straightforward? and I get to buy Irregular Choice shoes which I lust after but can't afford
I've just put the pearly ones on my Mum's credit card According to the power that is farcebook IC come up small so I should get away with it. And I will send them back if they're abominably uncomfortable no i won't i'll limp like an ugly sister
Families I will damn well make sure these get seen
