Wedding Accessories: Shoes .. the search is over!

Yay the search for my white satin wedding shoes is over. After sending a few pairs back to and receiving my refunds back for them within 14 days, it certainly made it easier for me to find my dream ... well semi dream pair of wedding shoes. I originally wanted blue ones, but have settled for white, which I'll dye and wear on dry days. I didn't want to run the risk of having them dyed and it then raining on my wedding day and getting a blue bottomed dress... Classy baby.. haha.

Lust Have It ... June box!

I received my June Lust Have it box and must admit I was rather impressed with it this month. I worked out that I would probably use just about everything in it, minus one of the perfume samples. It came in a lovely purple bag this month which was very nice.

Wedding Accessories ... Earrings and Bracelet

Now that I've posted about my wedding band being ordered I might as well tell you all that I've found my earrings and bracelet, which I was very very excited about finding. I had been scouring the cheaper jewellery shops such as Lovisa and Diva and such, and didn't really find anything. Going through numerous online wedding accessory shops and didn't see anything that really took my fancy. I was originally going to go with long statement earrings, but found out that they wouldn't really work with my dress.

My Wedding Band ... Found and Ordered!

I posted ages ago about finding my potential wedding band, and since then have fallen much more in love with the same band but with bigger stones in it. Hence causing me to have a heart attack and feel very sick to my stomach when the Michael Hill Jeweller Sales lady told me the most accurate price on what the 18 carat white gold would be.

Wedding Count Down ... 4 months to go!

Arrggggggggggggggghh ... I think I will start this post off in this way. Not cause I'm stressing or anything like that, but because the day is starting to get even more closer. Now I feel better for letting that out. Haha. A few things have happened in the month gone by as you've seen by what I've posted about. Some good things mainly and a few bad things .. those dam water bottles.. but I will update you later on them at another time. And yes sorry, this is another word and list heavy count down post, but it is getting better I assure you, haha.

Wedding flowers ...Florist check in!

I received a phone call last week from Rochelle who is doing our flowers for the wedding as I'd sent her an email asking if I could pay more off on the flowers, as we'd already paid the initial deposit and I was wanting to clear up the remaining amount so it reduces the things we have to pay in the last couple of months leading up to the wedding.

Wedding Nightmares .. Have you had one yet?

I woke up early this morning and then fell back asleep into the weirdest wedding dream that I have had by far! It's not the first wedding dream I have had, but generally I'm not so distressed as I was in this dream.

Bridesmaid's dresses - they're ready for pick up!

I received an email last night saying that my bridesmaids dresses were ready to be picked up. So emailed back asking if I needed the girls to come with me to try them on or what was the usual procedure.

Wedding Water Bottles .. totally the wrong colour!!!!!!!!!!

I came home from work today and my water bottle labels were waiting in the mailbox for me. Me being all excited that they had finally arrived and that I could finish re labelling the water bottles this long weekend, ran up the stairs to the apartment and ripped them open when I got inside.  And..... 

I was severely disappointed. You all know how I was told that there would be a small colour change. Well this was a massive colour change. The main colour has gone from a browny black to a dark forest green black which looks so obvious when you put the two of them together which I have done in the below photos.

What to do on a rainy day ... The Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy

I finished night shift this morning and it was beautiful when I was driving home from work and then on waking up this afternoon after a few hours sleep. I woke to the storm that had hit Sydney and was making everything wet, cold and miserable. So I thought what am I going to do today....

Wedding water bottles ... let's customise them...

I thought it would be a nice idea to provide some water for our guests as when we visited our ceremony site last year around the time of our wedding date to be, it was rather hot and then the week after it absolutely poured with rain. So I thought I'd cross my fingers and hope that it would be warm and thought I'd buy some water to provide the guests, and personalise the bottles while I was at it because I could. Good enough excuse I reckon... So this post is about customising my water bottles.
