TTD Dress...Finally

 

Many weeks ago I ordered a dress off amazon for a TTD session.  It was a $60 strapless dress.  When I got it, it was too big.  Since it was strapless I wanted it to be very tight bc once it gets wet I want it to stay put.  So I returned it for a one strap $60 dress.  It was the same brand so I ordered a size smaller.  When it came in...too small :(

 

So in a last ditch effort I ordered a 3rd dress. Same brand, 2 straps, but got it in 2 sizes.  The dresses came in and one fits! There will be a TTD session :)   Best part...it only cost $45 and since all the dresses came from Amazon, free shipping and returns!

A WEEK OF DIY...

 

I decided not to do beach bag style oot bags.  My friend has already done it.  Found my gift bags on oriental trading. Picked them bc there's a picture pocket.  Designed a little insert and Voila' I have a personalized bag. At this point I'm getting pretty lazy and copied a welcome letter from one of the forums.  I also typed up a "tentative" itinerary just to give people a heads up.  Nothing to detailed but just an idea of where to find us...should they want to.

PLACECARDS & HOLDERS

 

Little frames were purchases from oriental trading.  They came in black.  I spray painted them with spray glitter then added the sealant clear coat on top.  Names are printed in different colors- according to their dinner choice.  They turned out really pretty.  The sparkles don't show up as much in the picture.

Picked up a flower girl basket this week.  I highly doubt my daughter will actually throw the flowers...but they will be there just in case. In order to dress up the basket I glued some peacock feathers and a rhinestone embellishment together. it looks just like the hair clips I made for my bridesmaids.  My daughter will also be wearing a headband.  I put the feathers together but im not going to glue them on until we are down there. (same with the basket) I think everything will travel better separately.

 

Left to right: feather for basket, bridesmaid hair clips, feathers for flower girl headband


Also...for a special touch- mixed in with the flower petal will be peacock eyes :)

I thought about buying Mr. & Mrs. signs off etsy...but why spent the money for one time?  So I decided to make my own.  I used picture frames from the wedding shower and printed them from home.  I found a picture of peacock feathers and added them to the background using the "watermark" option.  That way is faded in the back.  Then I glittered over the Mr/Mrs.

    GROOMS GIFT

     

    My pictures from the boudoir shoot turned out beautifully.  The photographer was able to provide me with a digital image that I was able to print from the local walgreens.  My FI and I really didn't discuss gifts but I wanted to do something little for him. I know many ladies buy watches...but he already has one that he loves.  A while ago I picked up some peacock colored socks and created a label for them (taken from pinterest) Since then he has purchased matching socks for him and the groomsmen...but its still cute.  He doesn't have to wear them the day of.  His gifts are set and ready to go!

    THE DAY HAS COME...

     

    Well I'm taking a break from all the running around and packing.  Im exhausted...but I leave tomorrow. In less than 12 hours I will be on a plane on my way.  I was able to get all the decorations into one suitcase (under 40lbs)  Altogether we are doing great on the packing front.  I was able to get 98% of my daughters stuff (diapers included) into a medium size carryon suitcase. After this little break I have to get back to packing.  My clothes are all done. I just need to add in the gift and OOT bag stuff and weigh the bag.  We may get away with only needing the 2 large suitcases. We'll see.

     

    My FI has set up an international phone plan for the week.  If possible I will keep you updated.  If not, i'll be sure to post everything when I get back!

     

    This is it!!! The dress is here and only hours til we leave for the airport!
