#21 We're going on a tree hunt...

We're going to find a BIG one!

I don't yet know where... but surely somewhere in Adelaide there is a tree as beautiful as these ones with our name on it.
Well, not on it exactly as that would most likely be a fine-able offense as any trees this big & beautiful are probably national trust, but the tree meant for us anyway.

Can't you just picture it at the end of the aisle...

Gosh i hope we find one!

If you are in/are familiar with Adelaide & know where 'it' is-please please please enlighten me?

Sometimes my picky/stubborn-ness is little bit more than a lot annoying and i wish I could be more flexible with things... but mostly once I get a certain idea/image in my head then nothing else will do.
Hence the headache of the 'one or the other' direction of reception venue!
What to do, what to do?
Do we go with the surroundings we - yeah yeah lets be honest - i want....
Or with the food?
All attempts to get the 2 of them together have hit brick wall after brick wall after concrete slab.

What's that? Concentrate on the tree? Yup.

#20 Why do you let me stay here?

Not particularly relevant to this blogs topic... Lets call it inspiration shall we?
Lovely word, covers a multitude of strayingness...

A music clip for 'Why do you let me stay here' - She and Him' (Zooey Deschanel & M.Ward) from Marc Webb, the director of '500 Days of Summer', feat Zooey Deschanel & Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Be prepared for serious sweetness...

#19 Uh Oh...

So I had totally decided on the Palomas Nest Ring 'Pillow'.

Then, completely unexpectedly (I was done looking at Ring Pillows you see, it was THAT certain) whilst dancing through the veils, fascinators and other lovelies on the Twigs and Honey website, I came across....

Oh no! Decisions!

Do you think having 2 ring bearers - 1 carrying my sweethearts ring, and the other mine - would be out of the question???

I may have to take this new development and its consequences under serious consideration.

#18 Enthusasiam strikes again?

So it may be apparent at this stage, that I have a tendency when I like something to become a little...some may say obsessed, but I'll say enthusiastic?

My last post led me to Twigs and Honey and I'm feeling mighty 'enthusiastic' about this discovery!

Have been sitting here looking at the Twigs and Honey website and also their Etsy store, Goo and Gaa - ing like mad, and perhaps re thinking my decision to make my own veil...
I have a feeling that after having seen these anything I make will fall rather short.

I tried to narrow down my favourites. Honest I did.
I failed.

So all I can do is trust that you will feel just as 'enthusiastic' as I and not mind one bit that I MAY have gone a little over the top...


Fascinators (To be affixed to veil in this case)


Flower Girls

I really couldn't help myself. Clearly I have no self control.

#17 Birdcage Veils

When it comes to Vintage bridal glamour, there is absolutely no going past the Birdcage Veil.

I really can't get enough of them... And how to choose???

To be honest, I have seen quite a few that I went 'UGH'. Totally over the top and just, well, you get the idea without me heading further into Narkville...
But I have also come across some absolute stunners (In my trawling of google images - great thing that!)

Loving the understated elegance.
Have a gander at these...

Birdcage veils kick other veils butts.

#15 Reworked Wonders

Continuing on from my confession...

There is an Etsy shop called Lacuna Work that makes books using reworked wood from antique furniture and recycled paper.

I absolutely fell in love with this book, but measuring at just 8x9.5 cms it's a tad small for a guest book...It took multiple viewings and arguments with myself before a heartbreaking confirmation from the boy made me accept this fact however!

Delightfully enough, custom orders are a possibility...

I'm not too sure how something like this would fare being imported, especially in the instance of the insect holes, (which I love) and I would worry about the paper standing up to treatments to allow it to pass through customs?

Will have to do some investigationing me thinks....

#14 Little White Dresser

I am addicted to Etsy.
There. I've said it.
I could quite happily spend the whole day drooling over all the wonderous things on that site... but I don't....cough cough...

The beauties below are all from Little White Dresser - who by the way I've just noticed has some excellent holiday offers at the moment!
There are SO many pretty headbands, belts, necklaces and earrings, some weddingy and some not.

And on a side note, I'm not sure if she is indeed the talent behind the creations but think I might just be falling in love with the model... Stunning much?

Oh and did I mention I love Etsy???

#13 Transport


I'm thinking yeah... Bareback... It would add a certain amount of complication and cost though... Not to mention that we would be unable to leave the ceremony in the same manner, which is more complication and potential cost as well?

#12 Origami Gown

I am in the process of folding 1001 Paper Cranes that will, if all goes to plan, make various appearances throughout weddingness.

Wandering around the internet, as you do, and came across this stunner....

How. Amazing. Can you believe the talent that has gone into this?
This Gown is part of a collection of 7, each one a true work of art.
This one remains my favourite.

I have been told NO. Bahaha!
Despite this resounding instruction, I so definately would.
If only money grew on gowns...

#11 Engagement Photo Envy...

Could these be any more beautiful???
Seriously doubt it...
Talk about weak at the knees making - 100% swoon worthy!

Suffering quite a serious case of envy... it could be fatal...

#10 Butterflylicious

I was at my beautiful friend Monica's house on Sunday for her equally beautiful little girls first birthday.
Opened the fridge to put something away and saw these..

Just about died.

How gorgeous are they?!?!
Not to mention absolutely delicious!

Can you imagine....
