Wedding - 9 Months To Go

When we booked our venue back in February, the wedding seemed an absolute age away.However, the past four months have whizzed by and it's left me realising just how much I have left to organise and put me in to panic mode!

I won't bore you with the details but we've paid a few deposits here and there but not much else has been arranged. I'm going wedding dress shopping with my Mum and Sister on 21st July (YAY!) and will be buying the bridesmaid dresses last minute (hopefully in the January sales!) due to my bridesmaids being yo-yo dieters (hehe, love you girls!) and fear of the dresses not fitting by March if we bought them now.

We've picked our colour schemes - Dusky pink & Sage Green, which look GORGEOUS together.

Here's some of my inspiration:

I love the whole shabby chic, vintage thing (yes, I know EVERYONE'S doing it, but it's so... lovely!) and I can't wait to start gathering together my table centrepieces and decorations.
I have started making some rolled paper flowers (tutorial here) which I'm thinking of using intertwined around the base of a vintage birdcage as centrepieces.

Here are a couple of the flowers I've made

I think they look super cute!

I have a couple of other DIY projects up my sleeve, so need to start making time to get creative.
I love the fact that DIY projects add such a personal touch, and help make the day that bit more special.

Right, on to the biggie... the DRESS! As I mentioned, I'm going shopping on 21st July and I DO have specific type of dress in mind. I'm only 5'4 and a little bit scared that some of the 'traditional' dresses would swamp me, and I love a bit of 50's style... so here are some dresses which I LOVE

Although I am going to try and keep an open mind whilst shopping and try on some different styles.

Wish me luck!
