We've already spent a lot of time discussing and planning our DIY, teaparty-themed wedding, but now we finally have a few things to show for it!

The invitations:

I'm dying to order the paper and get started on these, but we won't have a date until his immigration visa is ready.

The dress:
It's loosely based on this dress:

I've finished the lightly bustled underskirt so far. (apologies for webcam image). 

The underskirt is white, and the ruffles are cream.  Over the ruffled area will be a sheer creamy fabric with celadon embroidered flowers and beading, and the dress itself will be a nearly white angel skin satin.

I'll post more as we get things done!

Uhhmmmm death please.
How do you do a bustle? I always thought a bustle had something to do with the train but I just Wikipedia'd it and discovered it basically just makes the back of the dress more full...right?

Elbow grease is the best polish!

A true bustle is done by gathering up the fabric, like from a long train, and kind of folding it over onto itself.  I don't know if mine's technically a bustle, but it's designed so that the ruffled area puffs out in back by layering the fabric inside the skirt.  It has a similar effect anyhow.

I really wanted to go nuts and do a version of Mina's dress from Dracula, but alas, I'm not that talented.
