I had my first wedding dress fitting and with my shoes I look very very tall, ordered my veil and my replacement engagement ring, we met with the registrar and had our last meeting with our reception venue co-ordinator.
The never ending rain made me finally finish sewing 3 new sashes for my flower girls dresses. Their dresses are white and even though the white sashes were pretty, they were lost against the dress, so I made green sashes to link the colour between the adults bridesmaid dresses and the childrens.
My oldest niece Holly will carry our wedding rings on a cushion inspired by the ring cushions on the Martha Stewart Weddings website.
And because I thought the backed looked plain in comparison to the front I added some ribbon and my late grandmother's brooch.
For both the sashes and the ring cushion I used a green lining fabric, although the lining fabric is fine for the sashes I thought it would fray easily under pressure and show every lump and bump of the cushion stuffing. So I added an extra row of stitches close to the edges and lined the lining fabric with a light weight white cotton fabric.
There's still a couple of items I want to make... maybe if there's enough time.
Coming soon, our hen and stag parties.
