Ok, I realised recently that I have yet to do any wedding related posts and I know how my readers like to be kept in the loop, so here you are! There has been lots of wedding planning going on behind the scenes in the Bamboo bear household and it's probably well overdue that I share some of these thoughts and schemes with you!
The realm of wedding daydreaming has been largely consumed by thoughts of the dress, obviously. As you may or may not already know, I plan to design and make my dress for the big day (here's where you wish me luck!). I'm feeling quite nervous about the whole thing, predominantly as this will be the first garment I've ever made from scratch (starting at the pattern drafting stage) so I'm trying to keep it simple and incorporate stuff I know I can do well!
In my hunt for inspiration, I came across one of my favourite pattern designers, Leanne Marshall, on Etsy and delved to a new depth of admiration at her skill: she also designs wedding dresses. You genius, Leanne. These are truly some of the most awe-inspiringly beautiful gowns I have ever seen!
I love that she creates a very simple gown and layers delicate lace and just a smidgen of frills over the top. Certainly food for thought....
And, of course, let's not forget the bridesmaids dresses. Something like this would fit the bill just nicely I think.
Stay tuned for more updates!
