Wedding Belles

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you ought to start!) you will know that I have spent the latter part of this past week frantically making a dress for my niece’s wedding. Now even though they handed out wedding invites months ago I still found myself starting the dress on Wednesday evening and finishing it on Friday night. I have to say I wasn’t majorly worried about not finishing it, more annoyed at myself for not doing it sooner. Anyhow, I finished it, bought my accessories and I have to say I am pretty darned please with the results.

The fabric is a medium weight brocade that I love so much it’s definitely fabric purchase of the year. You can’t really tell from the photos but there is a dropped waist and a full circle skirt with a rounded hankerchief hem. There is a V neckline at the back too.

I have some extra fabric left so I’ll be adding this dress to Etsy soon.

Accessory details……

Bag- Karen Millen

Shoes- Yours

Necklace and earrings- H&M

I must add that the shoes were super comfy and although I had flats with me in case my feet hurt in the evening, I didn’t have to take them off at all despite lots of dancing.

I can’t really talk about the wedding outfit without mentioning the bride and groom who both looked stunning. Despite the horrid weather this week and snow the same morning, the sun came out and the whole day was just beautiful. It really couldn’t have gone any better than it did.

I’m hoping they don’t mind having their photo on here!

And finally, you’ve got to photograph the pretty looking dessert haven’t you!
