Makeup trial! All happy, but one problem

Notice on my pics that my foundation doesn't match my skin tone? That's all the things we have to fix! I love the look tho!! total awesomeness with the eye makeup!

I am going with a girl called Karlee at Glow Experience in Albany ! She is super talented!! and very reasonably priced! Sorry also for my lack of usual posts. I haven't really done anything wedding related much in the last two weeks, so I'm trying to make up for it!

We finished our lantern centrepieces and


Looking good or what!!

I had purchased lanterns for a bargain awhile ago and needed 6 shepherds hooks for them to sit on tables but I couldnt find any that would sit stable!! I showed FH my inspiration and he said he could do this for me! FH finished creating the last one tonight (he is a professional boilermaker/welder)

What a champ!

What you think? Reckon it will work? Need something more?

My inviations are gone! I...

So I posted all the out of town invitations today and will try to do alot of running around tonight and post some of the local ones, well hand deliver.

Whats been happening this last week? We had relationship counselling this week, my videographer and DJ both cancelled on me... and umm well I needed a break. So I need to find a new DJ. Videographer I can do without!

That's it for now!!
I'm going to try get better pictures of the wedding programs in the next week. The pic I uploaded before is pretty dodgy.

Road testing my lanterns

I HEART MY LANTERNS!! Loving how the orange and red are standing out! Scuse me, had to type that in caps because .. I'M EXCITED!! (err yes over lanterns, sorry!)

I found my Cheap lanterns (3.00ea) from a discount warehouse that already have lights in them. just needed to buy batteries! I cleaned them out of red and orange.. :)
oops. Hopefully they will order more. I'm watching the shelf where they are like a hawk! Here they are!

Next pic is the orange up lighting inspiration I ordered 12 up lights to give the same affect in our venue. So I think the lanterns will complement the lighting. Well I hope so.

What you think, you like??

My wedding progams DONE.

After several mock ups.. trial and error and alot more trials. I decided my folded programs were craptastic and too much time to put together.

So i made new ones and alot quicker too!

Love them! Hope you do to. They are just printed out on A4 Sheets 2 per page and cut in half. It looks a little blurry on the photo but you get the idea

Even managed to squeeze in the thank you down the bottom.

If you want to know what it says, the thank you is a few posts down!

:) i rubbed out our last names for Internet sake!

What are you doing for your programs? How long did it take? It took me 4 mock ups!!

The whole look so far for the girls.

Lets hope we can pull this off!! I just pulled this together to see how the overall look is turning out. So far Im pretty okay with it. I think I would feel better if I could see it all together on, but its not going to happen to the wedding day and it all comes together.

I hope im heading on the right track!
