Wedding Sneak Peek

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

My sister, Chelsea is getting married in two weeks and we have both been working hard to plan, make decorations and of course, sew! Here's a little peek at what's been keeping me so busy!

Chelsea's wedding dress, handmade by me

my bridesmaid's dress pattern and fabric

all paper decorations- cranes, fortune cookies and candy dishes

the bride's bouquet- paper roses, made by me, We used some antique sheet music too, isn't that lovely?!

  4. Emily, you wouldn't believe how easy they are! Here's a link to the tute I used: http://pigtailspapertrails.blogspot.com/2010/01/making-paper-cardstock-roses-for.html
    I cut my circles in a scallop to accentuate the petal shape.

  5. This wedding sounds wonderful.

    I love that you are all putting in so much hard work into making most of the decorations by hand and even the wedding dress! A kinda make-do wedding!

    I am looking forward to seeing wedding pictures! xxx

  9. God*n*Me, will do!! Her wedding will be August 8th so I'll post pics of the whole thing the very next day! I love the paper bouquet idea. Not only is it gorgeous, it's eco friendly and much more affordable than real flowers. I'm making the bridesmaids bouquets from paper and my husband is making origami flowers for the boutonnieres. I can't wait to post pics of the finished project!! :)
