Beaded bra straps

Please excuse the picture of my underwear but i'm quite proud of it!
The shape of the back of my wedding dress means that you can see a portion of my bar straps. Since going without any support is not an option i decided that if you can see them i'd better make them pretty!

So i used the little bag of spare beads you get with embellished dresses and embellished the part of the bra straps that you'll see. Now they look like theyre supposed to be there - hidden in plain sight!

Seating plan

This definitely means the wedding is nearly here - the seating plan is now fixed!
I just bought some purple mountboard, printed the tables and occupants on some coloured card and fixed them in place with some lovely lacey washi tape i found on ebay
Then i just embellished it with some dried lavender - to keep it in line with the theme!
Its all very real now!!! :)

Bleach 'dyed' bride tshirt

Ive seen a few of these bleached bride tshirts on the interweb so i thought id make my own to wear on the wedding morning

I just used a clorex bleach pen i bought off ebay. If you use one make sure you shake it well first and use it on a test piece first to get rid of the air bubbles - my B is a bit messy because of air bubbles.

Center pieces - lace and string jars, bottles and cans



Centerpieces are well underway! I de-labelled a lot of cans, jars and bottles, wrapped them in lace trim (fixed with a glue gun) and then wrapped the lace with purple garden twine (a little bit of glue on the knot fixed it in place). I'll arrange them on the tables and fill them with lavender the day before the big day!!
