TELL US ABOUT FINDING YOUR WEDDING DRESS: The gown is the "Birkin Gown" from Cold Stone Fox. It's a very lightweight, deep V-neck, long sleeves, high slit with a touch of lace by around the waist. I wanted something "vintage-y" but fitting so this dress was perfect. The long sleeve added a classy look, high slit made me feel more "sexy", for the lack of a better word.
ANY DIY ELEMENTS: For those who know me, they would say my wedding is the most DIY wedding they know! I designed, painted and addressed my own wedding invitation suite. I made the macramé for our ceremony backdrop and bride and groom chair. I also wrote our food/drink menu on chalkboards, the ceremony mirror as well as all other signs at the wedding. Our guestbook was also a diy by Duy, I wanted a gold mirror but we couldn't find it anywhere for a cheap price so we bought me a mirror and a frame and put it together the night before the wedding. Wedding favours were put together with the help of my MOH. All florals for the wedding were put together in our living room the day before. Brides and bridesmaids robes were also homemade.
DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING FLOWERS: I didn't hire a florist for the wedding but fortunately one of my bridesmaids used to work for a florist and has some experience with weddings. I collectively sent pictures (of types of flowers and arrangements) to her and she made it work beautifully.I wanted everything white with a lot of greeneries. My bouquet consisted ofwhite garden roses, white ranunculus, white lisianthus, ivory sprays, olive branches, and silver dollar eucalyptus. Bridesmaid's bouquet and groomsmen boutonnieres were made from similar flowers. I wore an olive branch head wreath and the bridesmaid's head wreaths were made from baby breaths. We had eucalyptus garlands for the aisle seats and at the head table. We also used the same flowers and greeneries for table centerpieces and garnish the cakes. All flowers were ordered from an online website and assembled at home.
