I am back from my photo shoot in Europe and, as promised, have a lot more wedding ideas to share with you. I know they say to pick a theme and stay with it. Of course I saw so many great options  from Paris to Rome that it was difficult to choose! For instance, In Milan I noticed that Rudolf seems to be quite the inspiration for veils this Christmas season…

..and these holiday looks would certainly make Santa light up as well.

……………………………

In Paris it was all about recycling….

From paper flowers…

.

…to old newspapers…

.

…to used books…

and even those handy post-it notes…

…you really have to hand it to the French- they were reusing practically every kind of paper they can get their hands on!

…………………………..

Of course, I could find a wedding planner to help me to finalize everything…

But, I have noticed that you can’t always trust the people you hire to get the job done.

That’s why my friend Ashley took care of the music herself. Her wedding compositions were truly beautiful.

…although I think she should have quit while she was ahead left her hairdressing to a professional.

….and Augustine had always dreamed of a beach wedding but no one told her about those terrible sand storms that can kick up……

Worst of all, Celine’s dress designer ran out of lace for her gown – which went undetected until she made her way down the aisle…

…………………………………

Of course, I know that nothing else really matters once you’ve gone through dating all those beasts in designer clothing…

and finally found your Prince Charming….

But, important as true love is, there are still bridesmaid’s dresses to order…

… invitations to send…

..and designer wedding gifts to register for…

I am making headway though.  In fact, I found the perfect dress in London and Calvin has informed me that after weeks of scavenging the vintage stores he finally found the perfect suit. So, in short, we are almost ready for the big day! A few tweaks to the celebrity guest list (which I will share with you next time) and we will be walking down the aisle to designer wedded bliss. Until then! xoxo, Skinny B.

    Who designs this stuff – or maybe a better question is who buys and wears this stuff?! I guess the mall is looking better and better…

    Well I might be tempted by the used books … for a Halloween Party. Thanks for a trip through the surreal world of contemporary fashion.
