THE Dress!!

Thought it was about time I shared with you guys the most important dress of my life... my wedding dress!! Those of you who follow me on twitter will have seen a few photos already but it definitely deserves a post of it's own.  I am so happy with the way it turned out.  I went to my dressmaker, Karen at Stella Liliana, with an idea of how I wanted my dress to be, she worked her magic and it turned out to be even more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed.  It really, really is my dream dress.



Just look at the detail on the back, hundreds of hand sewn pearls and crystals


Finished off with a massive bow :)



Of course I wasn't the only one wearing a pretty dress.  As all my bridesmaids are blessed with great legs I decided to mix things up a bit and put them in my favourite short party dress!  I own this Oasis beauty myself and knew it would fit with my dress just perfectly.  I saved a fair bit of money on the dresses as it was a good few seasons old and I managed to get them all from eBay, the cheapest one was only £5 including p&p, what a bargain!  



We also had Gray's beautiful baby niece as a bridesmaid and she wore a very pretty dress from BHS and the cutest little pair of Converse. Isn't she just a picture!


BIG love


I have some very exciting news to share with you on Monday and I cannot wait!!

(I know that the landscape photos are too big for the page but the next size option is just too small!  I don't know how to make them fit or a certain size so if anyone can help me out & explain it in simple terms I would really appreciate it!!)

  30. I've already seen these and said as much but still - SO gorgeous! I love how you dressed the little girl too. :)

    The horizontal pics overlap but don't look messy. There is a way to go into the html and adjust the width, or actually size them beforehand on photoshop or something - but am not sure if you have that facility? Let me know if I can help x

  40. OH Sarah, your wedding was beautiful! I have been hunting your blog for ages trying to find your photos (realising you had got married a little while back!) you did so many amazing things- did you make all those brooches? What an amazing day- I love all the details and you looked a vision! I loved the fact you did a Scrabble theme for some decorations. I really wanted to do the same but my husband said no and the initial idea of mini shortbread scrabble tile wedding favours never happened! You must have loved it! I got married last summer and whilst I did lots of DIY things, I could never have achieved anything as beautiful as this! I love your 50's style dress- it's so you!!! I had a Vivien of Holloway one for my evening (and for first dance as I can't do lindy-hop in a long skirt!) and I adored flouncing around in my petticoat!
