Wedding deliveries

I have had a few wedding related deliveries this past week.. I have also had a few comments from people about how organised I am in planning the wedding well ahead of time - I swear planning is my middle name
 - A is not surprised at all.

So what did I receive?

My shoes arrived from netaporter, packed so sweetly....



Unfortunately they are toooo small. They are a size 40 and fit my girl who is usually a 37/38. Back to the shoe searching I continue...

Any suggestions are more than welcome!!

I also received my garters from NanaRoseDesigns - one throw away and one keepsake.

They were such a good price at only $27USD for both.



The pink is a little darker than I expected, but I love them nonetheless. There was also some "Hollywood tape" in the bag to ensure the garter doesn't slip - if I continue to lose weight this will be very important!

I also received some sample invites from Ink and Love.



I previously thought that I had decided what style I would like and it would be like this one I posted, but then I laid my eyes on these beautiful lace beauties...





They are all around the $5mark, which I don't think is too bad at all.

Mum, I and Zoe from Big Apple Red are currently playing around with the idea of using black lace throughout the styling and these invitations will go perfectly. I love the glamour black lace can bring to an event.

What do you think of black lace styling? Have you been to a wedding with it or seen any inspirational photos along that theme? I need all the help I can get!!!

On the topic of all things wedding.... my makeup artist (trial next Saturday eeeep!) Susie Ayoub has been posting many "before and afte"r shots on her Facebook recently..

I think they look great and really showcase her talent!


I looove this look above!







 I can't wait for my own transformation next week!!

  1. WOW to the make-up before and afters! That is fabulous.

    Bummer about the shoes. I am also a 40 and find it so hard to find things that fit nicely at times. I'm not much help with finding another pair - I wore royal purple heels under my dress to match the bridesmaids.

  2. Those before and afters are amazing! It's crazy what make-up can do, not that any of the girls were bad before. Good luck with the trial

  3. Oh that's unfortunate about the shoes. I'm sure you'll find another pair that you fall in love with. Love the lace on the invites, sounds like a great idea to incorporate it into your theme. Will look beautiful :)

  4. The Hollywood tape for your garters are an excellent idea!
    You don't want what happened to me to happen to you... As we got out of the car I felt something around my ankle and caught on my heels so I asked one of my BM's to help me out, under my dress she goes and comes out with my garter! We quickly put it in my clutch in the car and off we went down the aisle, So lucky it didn't happen as we were walking down!

  5. Shame about those shoes, I loved them!

    I like the idea of black lace, I think it would really suit you too (you did pick black lace on that first pair of shoes too!).

    Can't wait to see what else you come up with :-)

  7. That is such a shame about the shoes! I hope you find something. I don't have any suggestions as the size they really were is my size feet.
    The black lace theme would be gorgeous, it always adds instant glamour.
    And WOW your makeup artist is amazing! Those girls look so glamorous and extra pretty. The first look is stunning.
