These photos were taken in May 2010
My Bridesmaids each wore Mori Lee Bridesmaids Style 284 in the colour Fuchsia. Instead of the included satin shall, they had a pale pink pashmina.
My dress was "Mae" by Sottero & Midgley, purchased from the Bridal Gallery in New Westminster. I was lucky enough to get to wear in four times! (Our Wedding Day, on our Honeymoon in Paris, during our second wedding reception in Germany and for a post-wedding photoshoot to capture all the photos we missed out on due to our rainy wedding day)
And my Bridesmaid's Necklace:
My engagement ring from Blue Nile
Our wedding bands:
One of my favourite (and DEFINITELY most time consuming) wedding DIY projects was my crystal strass shoes.
Due to the snow at our reception, I threw on some more comfortable shoes to make a quick run out into the snow!
For my bridal bouquet, I wanted it to be simple and JUST roses. I ordered a few dozen plain bouquets of roses from costco, and picked them up the day before the wedding. Luckily, the colour I picked had no thorns! I spent about 30-45 minutes taking off the leaves, and arranging them. I then wrapped the stems with the scraps from hemming my wedding dress, and used a family heirloom pin as a finishing touch.
Instead of throwing the bouquet, I gave it to my grandmother in memory of my grandfather, who unfortunately passed away approximately one month before the wedding. She loved it, and actually placed in on his grave afterwards.
