The bridesmaid dresses were the worst, I wanted them in that pink and orange and couldn't find them anywhere so finally I just went into every bridal store I could find and I wouldn't even look I just asked if they could do the colors and finally at this tiny bridal store in Calgary called Sunshine Bridal they had about 6 dresses that they could do and this was the cutest and the cheapest so it all worked out!

I found my dress today!!! I really didn't think I would have that feeling about the one but I do and I couldn't be happier. We also found the bridesmaid dresses as well. I don't have a picture of the girls in it but the link is to the one on the actual Bill Levkoff site.

I just put the square up to my computer to make sure it would fit. Then I printed out the letters for Guestbook on white paper. I also bolded the font so it would be a bit thicker. I cut the paper around the letters so they were about the same size as the burlap pieces and just put the white paper with letter behind it. I was able to see most of the black print through the burlap and just painted over top of it. I hope that makes sense. I was going to cut the letters out and make a stencil but this was way easier!

 

For paint- I couldn't find a coral colour I liked so I bought a small tester can of house paint in the colour I wanted. For the starfish I used acrylic craft paint. Both of them worked great! Also some of the burlap was crinkled and bent so I just ironed the pieces before painting them on medium heat!

Thank you :) I will be doing this, wish me luck!!

Hey ladies, I purchased a "reception dress" from Mod Cloth. I love it so much. I plan to wear my wedding dress during the ceremony, dinner, and first dance. Then we will be performing a choreographed salsa dance (since we've been taking salsa lessons for the past two years) and thats when I'll change into this dress! I can't salsa in my wedding dress its too big and heavy. Are you any of you changing into a shorter, lighter dress? I don't feel as bad since I'll get to wear my wedding dress again for our catholic ceremony here the following weekend.

I am not changing, but this is stunning, it would also work for a rehearsal dinner dress or maybe wedding shower where did you get it?

Thanks! I bought it on ModCloth.com. It was a bit pricier then I wanted to pay for a second dress... but I saw it and was like this is pretty much exactly what I want and I tried hard to find something similar around here, but I couldn't and so I ended up ordering it. But think its nice and I could wear it again or at least get it dyed another colour after the wedding.
