Boy I’ve gotten bad about updating… and taking pictures, and doing a lot of things. :p My dress is has begun the process of alteration, however! After a semi-stressful, long drive through traffic into the city (sort of) I arrived and with pins flashing, Louise managed to put my mind completely at ease. I feel like such a princess and I’m so excited to have it finished. You see, I was worried when the dress first arrived. For starters, I couldn’t tie the back myself, so I couldn’t get a clear picture of the fit, and then there was the bust. Perhaps my measurements were misread? All I know was there was too much padding and my small figure did NOT fill it out so it looked like I had attempted to stuff a box of lumpy tissues down the front. Getting rid of a an inch or two of fabric and the padding should fix things, though, so I’m excited! I go back for another fitting in May and then the actual sewing begins.
As for other things – the paper for the invitations is here so we’ll have to start on that soon! I may have also figured out what I want to do for centerpieces, but I have to run the idea by Josh first to see what he thinks and crunch a few numbers. I thought of the perfect way to tie in the oriental elements with the lighting elements I also wanted to use! Flowers are pretty much decided on as well for the most part and I’m actually relieved that part is being taken care of by someone else. :p At first I didn’t want to “delegate” at all, but now that’s one huge thing to not have to worry about and Kim and Mike know so much more about flowers than I do.
Hooray! I can't wait to see miss princess in her dress! ;p What did you decide on for flowers? I can't believe how close it's getting!!! Yay!!
Can't wait to get my invite!! And see all the pics posted later!!!
Flowers will sunflowers, gerbera daisies, marigolds, and anything else bright and cheery! 🙂
