i was witnessing the birth of our gorgeous invites thanks to my very talented l'l sis (a graphic designer!) and my fiance (who is full of radical ideas!). i tot they make a great team. in an unusual turn of events, turquoise was incorporated into our church invite although the main colors like orange and brown in our autumn color palette remains. how do i incorporate turquoise into the wedding details now?

Doesn't the cake look incredibly stunning and delicious? fruits are like a stack of jewels. I want a similar bouquet too! ... with burst of purple.

huneymoon dilemma.

Both places are exceptionally gorgeous and romantic, I'm sure. It will be unfair to make a comparison as they're completely different. If not for the exhorbitant cab fare from Rome Int'l Airport to Amalfi Coast (400 EUROS!) unless we take the train/bus, the latter wins hands down.

we went for the first session of the marriage prep course (compulsory if you're getting married in the roman catholic church!) and, it was pretty interesting. Like us, alot of couples were made to go. we had some laughs and made some friends - always good. and... oh! 5 MORE MONTHS!

the assymetrical neckline is in huney!

I never knew it was this hard deciding on a wedding dress. I gave myself a deadline and its tomorrow! I do not want an over-the-top dress as I fear not being able to carry it off, so a classic tube dress is a safe choice. Safe, but to make it a little unique i am considering an asymmetrical neckline. Coco Kelly's Spring Bridal Fashion for 2010 just reinforced my decision. {romona keveza}
So what jewellery would go with it?

I am so pleased with myself. Thanks to all the wonderful blogs I frequent, I was so inspired to de-clutter my room (wardrobe & work-space) and after much procrastination, I made most of my long easter weekend and did it! Yeay and I just have to make it prettier now.
Desire to inspire prepared an easter reading guide with links of ALL the wonderful blogs out there, and ... here I come to devour ALL!
