I love this. I wish I had the finances to get a chaise lounge and put it in the middle of the lawn. I know there is one place that hires them out, but I cant justify $300 for a chair. hmmm Picnic rugs and deck chairs it is!
So I could take amazing photographs like these... I have to say that Leslie who does the Colour Me Pretty section over at decor8 is fabulous at what she does. I would love to be able to set up images like these, all I need is to get my hands on some great props like these!
I'm very excited to see this post over at Style Me Pretty because I am in the process of cutting and sewing three 15 metre hessian table runners and it is nice to know that at least the hours of labor will be worth it in the end, because this table setting looks amazing.
I have roughly 100 metres of fabric to sew... table runners (each table being 15metres long), picnic rugs, cushions...the list goes on. But it is worth all the time and effort watching it all come together, and as it does, I cant wait to show you more images. But for now I will leave you with a sneak peek of what the fabrics I am using for the cushions that will lie on the picnic rugs.
I am really struggling to find bridesmaid dresses that are (a) affordable = $200, (b) long enough for one of my bridesmaids who is 6 foot 4 inches, (c) that fits all my bridesmaids body shapes as they are all very different and (d) that is available in both Adelaide and Sydney as one of my bridesmaids is in Sydney and cant come down to look for dresses. So I am a little bit stressed in that department.
I found these dresses on Rose and Ruby that I love but two of my bridesmaids cant try them on because we are down here in Adelaide! poo. I'm not sure really what to do. Any suggestions of places to look for bridesmaid dresses in Adelaide??
oh by the way, I got the white shoes with the bows on them for the wedding shoes. Thanks for all the suggestions. Im going to wear the purple shoes for some photos. x
So I went for one of my last dress fittings last weekend and I have my last tomorrow morning, but the designer and my dad said that my shoes didnt go with the dress. Now I have a dilemma! Which shoes?!
The first image is of the dress that inspired my dress (a tiny bit different around the neck) the second image (in the middle) is the detailing around my waist. The Third image is of the shoes Liza (my designer) said I should wear, and I love them, but I'm not sure if they're too bling for me, I dont feel like they're "me" but they go really well with the dress. The last image is of the original shoes I bought, and I love the idea of having a coloured shoe peeking out the bottom of my dress, but my dad and Liza said they're too solid and dont compliment the dress.
Her styling and photography are amazing and so well composed and leave me feeling jealous because I wish I could put together images the way she does! Here are her beautiful collection of vintage bottles (an obsession I admit, I share).
Here is the link for the tag I used for the address labels. I then tweaked them in photoshop, here is the image file I made....
I got the RSVP envelope tags from a great great GREAT blog called eatdrinkchic.com. Then I used "loved by the king" font from dafont.com to address the labels then printed them onto a4 sticky back paper and then cut them out by hand. All up the materials and printing cost me around $200.
If anyone is interested in having me custom design and make invitations for your event, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I can work one on one with you to create the perfect invites for your event.
And now I can show you. oh.. and sorry about my poor photography, hopefully i'll get better shots of these at the wedding.
Basically I followed on from the save the date cards where I tied the cards with twine to form a package style invite to match the theme of a summer picnic.I originally came up with a more formal and refined invite, however Jarrod and I both agreed that we wanted something more playful, more us and an invite that would match the feel we are aiming to achieve on the day.
I found the pattern for the back of the cards on the net here and tweaked the colours and size of the pattern to get the look I wanted. The fonts I used were "loved by the king" and "toast" both found on dafont.com and the images of the cars and the map were hand drawn.
If you see any images that i have noted incorrectly, or have not linked them or stated where it they are from, and you know, please PLEASE tell me. All the beautiful inspirations i have gathered deserve the correct recognition.
Also If i have used your images and you would like me to remove them, please let me know.
