My first hair trial!
I'll have the barette on the one side that's pulled back. We took it out after we figured out the placement at the hair salon.
These are a necklace and earrings I found on Redotdesigns.com. I made my own versions with Swarovski cream color pearls, and silver shade crystals. I made the full 5 strand bracelet, but decided that 3 strands looked better. My best friend, Carrie, agreed, and she wore them for her 8/8/09 wedding. I will probably be wearing her necklace at my wedding, pictured below.
I finally found flat shoes that I love! I definitely would go with heels, if John wasn't a bit shorter than me. They are from the Dessy Group, and were surprisingly affordable, less than $30. They had a wide range of colors you could chose them in, and it didn't cost extra for colors beyond white, ivory or platinum. I picked ivory, since my dress is that color, and we're dyeing the crinoline a bright color.
Side note- My shoes were completely trashed after the wedding! Not a surprise, since we were tramping through a state park for our pictures, and lots of grass, etc, for our post ceremony pictures. Very comfy, I only had a couple blisters on my toes, but I wouldn't expect them to last long! My other pair that gets normal use, however, is doing just fine. Just don't expect a lot from them afterwards if you're going everywhere the day of your wedding in them!
