something blue

This is more like it, still lacking a groom in these inspiration boards but he doesn't need planning he's perfect just as he is x
I didn't really have a theme in mind, these colours just kind of found me. The dress on the left is the closest picture to mine that I can find, and again I just love these paper pom poms from Martha stewart. I fell in love with these cards from The paper peony over at Etsy and ordered some to use as my wedding invites.
We are pretty much leaving for NYC right after we toe the knot, this leaves us just enough time to grab a coffee and some yummy cake with our family.

I had a thought to pick up souvenirs whilst in New York to give as favors when we return, maybe some postcards with vintage images of the city could be used as tags. I could attach them to pretty bags of sweets and trinkets, Hershey's kisses are so cute and Anthropologie and ABC Home have lovely scented candles or other pretty accessories that would make great presents. (both of these websites are nothing compared to actually being inside either one of these beautiful shops!)
It will give me something to create in the early hours of the morning as I always seem to wake up at 5'ish when I am in New York.
Ps. I am still shoeless, a barefoot bride! The silver shoes from toast never appeared and the D&G's were too high. I am going to take myself off to Royal Tunbridge wells for the day on saturday. A desperate last ditch attempt or its going to have to be the only other pair of white shoes I own the nike airs!

Just in case you didn't know this already, there's a whole shoe shop specifically for wedding shoes in Camden Road in Tunbridge Wells - kind of behind the Victoria Place shopping centre. But if you're not dead set on white and would consider silver or pale gold, I would also look in Hoopers and Phase Eight as they've had some very pretty things in the windows recently!

Oops, sorry, forgot to say - the shop is called First 4 Brides. Not the most enlightening name...

Thanks so much for the info, I was hoping you would be reading and knew you might have some tips!

Do you have a blog?

Glad to be a help! I have a Livejournal blog - it's a bit neglected these days as I'm working crazy hours, but you can find it here. One day I will get a proper one!
