A wedding...

Photobucket

recycled lampshades at Flossy and Mr You's wedding feast

Well that heading got your attention didn't it. No it's not mine. I’m not usually a weddingy person and don’t have any intention of starring in one but just reading about Flossy P and Mr You's wedding has been so lovely that I got inspired to do a little wedding post. I highly recommend heading over to Flossy's place, taking a pew, and enjoying the wedding. You'll go away feeling uplifted - and with fabulous decorating ideas as well.

all under $50, from top left clockwise: 1. maternity bridal gown from lady elizabeth designs 2. vintage pink with shawl collar from dollyrocker vintage 3. vintage green formal dress from yellow dog vintage 4. girls attendant dress from the bitsy bean 5. short white dress from aptvwt 6. short maroon velvet dress from sunny sunday vintage 7. caramel velvet from popettes 8. cream long sleeved vintage dress from nod to mod vintage 9. floral halter from the grace boutique 10. mens jacket from vintage suits 11. square neck black dress from vintage suits 12. black halter from nicole kimberley

So, for my wedding post I gave myself the challenge of staying at $50 or under for clothing or accessories. There were so many fabulous inexpensive ‘gowns’ and men's outfits to be had on Etsy. Or you could just skip the new outfit and wear any old thing coupled with one of these accessories and nobody would notice the outfit.

Thanks for popping by. Think the manic comes from not posting Random Tuesday for awhile. I have a backlog of linkies piling up!

I love the recycled lamps in the tree...and that peacock hair clip! Wouldn't matter what else you had on with that in your hair. :0) Everyone would be following you around just to get a closer look.

Hope you are having a great day!

I am loving your jewelry picks!

This is the first year in 8 that we are not going to a wedding... it was a bit of wedding fervour for awhile... but it's only March now.. so still early to tell.

Hi Chrisy! Another magical post, sweetie! The inexpensive wedding attires you chose are beautiful and all the accessories are simply gorgeous. My favorite is the peacock hair clip. So diva! I just loved the film! I just sipped on my coffee and enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks for sharing!

Also, thanks so much for your loving visit as always! I really appreciate all your interpretations of my art journal entry.

Hugs,
Lisa :)

hello chrissy, thank you for stopping by my blog and for your very kind words about my writing.

your fashion choices are awesome! i don't know if you know that despite my escalating age and weight i am an aspiring babe (!) so i love looking at what's here.

like so many of us, we are preparing to lose our beloved renee and it is difficult and confusing. it's easy to want to believe it won't happen. but i know she is and will remain a senior angel for her family and friends and her place in our hearts is iron clad tight.

feel free to stop by anytime. i would like to come back here to linger as well.

love
kj

LOVE this! I sent a link for the blog to my soon-to-be daughter-in-law; she and my son will be married on our hilltop in the fall, and I think they'll find lots of wonderful ideas in this sweet wedding.

xox,
Susan
