Wedding Crafts

Being crafty is very important to me. Like as important as breathing. And eating cheese.

I want my wedding to be über crafty.

I’m not going to be planning anything until at least this summer, because I am getting married on January 4th, 2014, but I have been looking at all sorts of wedding crafts that  I want to begin creating for the big day. Some of my favorite pics so far are:

1. A wall of flowers somewhere. Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess used hers as the focal point of her alter, but I am getting married in a church so I don’t think this will work. Maybe I’ll use something like it somewhere for pictures or during the reception?

2. I also really like this idea from Michael’s. Yeah. Michael’s as in the craft store. Cute eh? I like the red one.

3. I want to hang lots of flowery ball shaped things at my wedding. Wait. That sounds obscene.

4. I already chopped up t-shirts to make these. I’m doing them in teal, charcoal gray, purple, mustard yellow, and peachy pink. That’s all the colors I have so far lol.

5. Knitted bunting? I have been dreaming this up in my head, although with my beekeeper’s quilt moving right along (zero puffs made in two weeks jesus h.) I don’t know if this little dream will become a reality. I don’t know yet. I have been thinking I would use the basic color scheme and incorporate different yarns and textures and create a little bunting to string somewhere. I would also like to make a little crocheted something for decorating, like chaining a really long string and then making scallops in it? Thoughts?

I had better get to sleep before I wear myself out with my over enterprising.


So have you met my wedding dress?

Fanfuckingtastic. Finals are over and Christmas is coming. I’m miserable. My macbook croaked due to an unfortunate accident with a glass of pink lemonade and I had to spend a shitton of money fixing it, leaving with me almost nothing to get presents for people or even pay my bills. I’m completely miserable. Anyways…

So like every other young girl that breathes, I am completely obsessed with reruns of Say Yes to the Dress on TLC. I catch old episodes when they come on midmorning…and at least once a day, I fall in love. This dress is my latest obsession. It’s a Claire Pettibone dress that I never in a million years could afford, but here she is, Madame Butterfly

Oh dear Christ. I love it. It screams winter. Basically swooning every single time I see it…and also when I look at the price tag. Definitely a no.

Other designs I like and could afford…

Vera Wang at David’s Bridal…there’s one nearby and I might have to try this one on…minus the tassel neckpiece. Yikes.

I’m pretty sure this one is not a part of the collection and I can’t try it on, but I still love the color. Bridal White totally doesn’t go with my skin tone. I am literally the color of paper…at my most tan.

I feel like my mom would like this one. I feel like it’s quite Betty Draper. I even like the crazy bow in front.

And some I can’t afford just for the fun of it:

I love the straps

I’d wear this if I were getting married in the summer, but I’m not so I won’t.

I’d say that’s enough dress porn for the evening. I’m going to continue working on my gorgeous stress acne and chugging diet mountain dew.

Cheers to you and yours!
