While You're Waiting...

Three days before the kiddos got married, they had a photo shoot in their wedding clothes.

Sara's wedding dress is truly from the 1950s.  We ordered it on Etsy several months ago and made some alterations to her liking. 

The Wedding Day was a total success. Pure magic under the stars!!! While we wait for the photographer's photos and while we all recuperate over here, I thought you would enjoy these few shots.

Tying Up Loose Ends

Bridesmaids' gifts all wrapped up...

The necklaces came from Forever We did end up changing out black ribbon for cream. These were ordered almost the minute Sara got glad we did because they are no longer there.
Here's what we came up with for the Groom's boutonniere to match Sara's very unusual bridal bouquet. This too, was originally a vintage pin from the antique store.
We got the "stems" attached, finally.

These petticoats for the Bridesmaids were the ALL-TIME goofiest idea I've ever had. Turning them into knee length (from ankle length) was a nightmare. Thanks for all your help,'re an angel!!!

And, since the little Mister will be here from London, I made him a polka-dot bow tie to match his cousins' polka-dot dresses.

Thank you for continuing to visit even though I've been on hiatus.
One day soon... : )

Gearing Up

Crazy, crazy busy over here, but thought I would show you the beginnings of decorating for the Shower. We're getting LOTS of mileage out of the long 'Will and Sara' banner. : )

I'll be back with lots of pics from the Shower, next time. I hope you're all doing well!

Because Someone Asked...

Just another short one today. A couple of weeks ago my blogging buddy, Joyce, asked, "How are you able to stay out of all that candy by your front door?" The answer was simple. I have a 'Mother of the Bride' dress sitting in my closet that has to fit just right on the big day. Ha! Nothing like perfect motivation, huh?
I was so happy to find this on clearance at the Mall. (Still wasn't cheap, but cheap---er) Yipee! Up close details:

I'm thinking about putting a little "bling" on top of the shoes. We'll see.

I'm so sad that I don't get to Blog surf these days. Like I said before, things should get back to normal in the Fall. (Whatever NORMAL means)!!! I'll have lots of catching up to do over at your places by then...and looking forward to it!
Happy September,
Mary Lou
