Me and my baby are getting married next June (2009). I'm so excited, and looking at all the great photos everyone has posted compels me to share what little I have done so far!
First things first...the ring:
The center stone is the reddest red garnet I've ever seen. I love it! It's the perfect ring.
It's cute and vintage and almost perfect. I need to shorten it a bit (right now it's tea length when I want more of a party dress), and change the side zip to a back closure. Haven't decided on lace-up or those tiny little bridal buttons. I'm sure they have a name, but I don't know what it is.
Last...the color inspiration:
Red was a given, but this necklace decided the accent. I love these two colors together.
There will be lots of work to do in the upcoming months. I'm planning on doing the invites, flowers (paper), decorations and cake (cupcakes and stand) myself (with a little help from my friends). I have an artist/museum exhibit designer friend who's making our cake-topper. We may or may not do the food--depending on the place we pick for the reception (another thing we've yet to do).
I'm looking forward to sharing my progress. Hopefully it will help keep me on track. I'm a terrible procrastinator!
