THE THEME: Midsummer's Night Dream
THE VENUE: My Aunt and Uncle's 6 acre property, including the lawns, the forest, and the orchard. THE DRESS: vintage caftan (more photos to come after the event) that cost me 12 dollars. It is a delicate peach shade, generously bisht-cut, with a floral pattern woven in the fabric design, very fine thread embroidery at the neck and hem. I feel like a princess in it. THE GROOM: black tuxedo suit (he already owns), dress socks, and a crystal boutonniere.
THE CAKE: strawberry shortcake decorated with strawberries, served on a vintage ceramic cake stand, with raspberry sorbet and vanilla icecream served as a side in vintage teacups... I am thinking to make my own cake copper out of gold-coloured wire, swaroski crystals, pastel coloured feather butterflies, and pearls, but if I give up on that idea due to time contraints, our cake topper will be the bride and groom's mongrammed initials. If using the initials, we will add sparklers, lol.
THE RING: vintage ruby (not from Burma). Worn with henna:P
LA VOILLE: I will be wearing a vintage hat covered in dupoine cream silk with an attached toffee-coloured tulle handbeaded veil. I will wear a pale pinkish-peach hijab and attached the bridal veil with Victorian hat pins that I've always had but have NO IDEA where they've come from.
THE GUESTS: will be a small party of family and close friends. They will wear what they want, so I made these collages just for fun:p I'll have about 30 people, including children. The only point of a big wedding for me would be an excuse to feed the poor en masse. I don't like them otherwise, a tonne of people you don't really know and some you don't really like but you have to invite in order to invite someone else. LOL, sooooo NOT my style.
