1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / ideas for a garden/tea party theme? on: February 19, 2007 01:21:23 PM
I have been charged with helping my sister plan her wedding. and by help plan, i mean i am related to the most indecisive people on the planet and in order to avoid making any decisions ever, they enlist me as a wedding slave. It involves much making of puppy eyes and sniffling and "hey, you're crafty, right? so planning a wedding would be fun, right?" It's not pretty. Trust me. The good news is, she's not very picky, lol.

So i was wondering if any of you lovely, crafty people have any ideas for a garden/tea party sort of theme. We want it to be like the giant tea party we would have thrown when we were little, whimsical and slightly silly. Any ideas for decorations, favors, or just about anything else would be greatly appreciated.  Grin
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Opinions on dress for wedding? on: November 08, 2006 03:18:30 PM
i'm in a wedding on new year's eve this december. i was just told that the bride decided we're going to pick our own dress. the bride wants the neckline to come up in the middle and the straps both come from the middle of the front. kind of like this:

it doesn't have to have the knot bit and it can be 2 piece, but you get the idea.

the problem is i have a 56 inch bust, and i don't have enough time to order a dress from a tailor. so... i know some of you have made formal dresses and i need an honest opinion on whether you think someone with basic sewing ability can make a formal top in about 5 or 6 weeks.

i don't want to be overly confident, especially since i've never worked with boning before and most of the patterns i've found need it. and i don't want to bank on being able to make this myself and 2 weeks before the wedding end up with an ill fitting sack, lol. rambling, i know...

anyway, any opinions?
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / online suppliers on: October 15, 2006 09:22:03 PM
i live in a pretty rural area and there isn't much in the way of local shops with crafting supplies, so i've turned to our good friend the internet, but i'm pretty new to online shopping. i was wondering if anyone could reccomend a good online source for beading and jewelry supplies?

thanks, it's much appreciated  Grin
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / i'm at a loss on: October 12, 2006 08:28:32 AM
i am in the wedding of a very old friend on new years eve, and i'm at a total loss as far as what to get them. the big problem is that i know her quite well, and she has the same eccentric tastes i do, but i've only met her fiance a handful of times and i would like to find something for both of them. i really want it to be something hand made because i know she'll appreciate it. any ideas?
