*Laughs at Self* You have to be a hopeless (or is that helpless?) Romantic to have gotten married as many times as I have.
B & I are currently engaged, and are getting closer to actually setting a date. We're thinking sometime in October, since that is my favorite month. Not sure if it will be a Halloween wedding, but you can bet I'll be playing costume dress up regardless!greenfront

Have I mentioned, I can *just* squeeze into and fully zip the 50's prom dress I bought? Still, I think I''m going to have to fuss with altering it to get the comfiest fit and best look. Am going to redo the worn out bodice lining and replace the boning, adding just a smidge more room around the ribcage measurement. I *hope/think* I will be able to do this WITHOUT changing the nicely ruched chiffon fabric of the outer bodice, as I think it has just enough "give".

I bought a era-proper pretty light pink petticoat to wear underneath. May add a ruffle or lace trim to it to peek out from under the skirt. I'm lazy and hate gathering tulle, so I picked one up from an etsy shop rather than sew my own. Just went with a medium fullness, as I have plenty of hips and bustle all on my own. http://www.etsy.com/listing/81811110/pink-tea-length-crinoline-medium
Also just ebayed a strapless longline bra; guess all I'm lacking now are lace panties...
Realized somewhere along the way that my embellished parasol project will match and accessorize quite nicely; so maybe I'll find the motivation to finish it up! http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1711403476473.2083723.1579734408&type=3&l=6dce5660f4
Have also got in mind to craft a brooch bouquet, so have started collecting ideas and jewelery pieces for that.http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3274643436495.2121451.1579734408&type=1&l=b4f91804f8http://www.fancypantsweddings.com/how-to-design-a-brooch-bouquet/
TO ANY OF MY FRIENDS: I WOULD LOVE IT IF YOU HAVE A PIECE OF COSTUME JEWELERY TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE BOUQUET PROJECT. Including pieces from friends would make it ever so much more special and meaningful. :)
