Hi all,

Chloe,

Love the colour scheme sage is such a pretty colour and you dont see it being used that much.

Michelle,

At least with your sister getting dress made it will be perfect.


Laurette,

The colour im thinking of is maybe teal or gun metal grey I would like to have red but i wore red to amanda's e-party + she is having pink bm's and thinks the red might clash.

She just rang and is at the moment out dress shopping with Paddy's mum the colour dress she has picked so far is deep purple.
Glad to see you have picked your invitations now as you said the hard task of finalising guest list.

Oh, Kathy - that is the colour that my mum wants also! Gun metal grey is what she has decided on. Just to find an outfit in that colour though!

Yeah i love both of those colours its just a mater of finding an outfit that i like in that colour.

If i cant find one i might get material and have my friend who is a dressmaker make it for me in the same style as no.10 in the photos.


Just got a call from where i used to work my old boss wants me to work there this weekend for a wedding reception so that will be good as i get a few more ideas on what not and what to do for Amanda.

I think that I fixed it now. I definelty love your avatar!

I am going to make a new signature tonight, I liked this one but then when I had to make it smaller it went all wobbly.

Hey girls, what do you think of my BM's in a gunmetal (dark silver) colour instead of the black?

I want to have white and pale pink roses, and I think that the pale pink would look better against the grey rather than the black?

Thanks
Laurette

Hi Girls,

Kathy - I love #10 as well. #2 is also really nice. And gun-metal grey or teal would both look gorgeous. Especially against the bridesmaids. Good luck finding something in the right colour ready made. biggrin.gif

Laurette - good to see you again. I wondered where you went! Best of luck with the job. I hope you hear from the GM soon. And.....I LOVE your dress. It's just beautiful. The beading on the back beside the lacing looks gorgeous. (and congrats on losing some weight. biggrin.gif Nice comments like the one you got will give you motivation to keep going.) And in response to your last post, I think either black or gun metal grey would look great on the BM's. They both complement pink so well, but my personal preference is the grey/silver if you can find the right fabric and colour.

Chloe - your colour theme is beautiful. You'll have to post some pics of the Japanese paper you are using for your invitations.

Michelle - glad your first day went O.K. Love your new Avatar laugh.gif LOL, it's a classic.

I picked up my stationery/papers for my invites on the weekend, so can start working on those. I also picked up some sample choccies which unfortunately ( tongue.gif ), we have to taste test, so we can choose flavours for the bonbons. That's about it for me. Slowly but surely, things get done!

Jo.

The dark silver might look softer than the black. Either colour will look stunning!

Laurette,

I think the gunmetal grey/dark silver would look great with the guys in black and the pink flowers.

Just make sure you let your mum know as you dont want her in the same colour as bm's.

Michelle,

Love the avatar biggrin.gif Hows the new job going???

Very nice bouquet Kathy. I love it.

My job is ok, apart from dealing with a few dero's in a dodgy location its ok! Im living for my pay days.

Oh I got my quote, for a brides bouquet with silk roses and crystals, 2 BM bouquets with roses and crystals, 3 flowergirl circlets for their hair, and 3 corsarges for the boys = $350. I was pretty happy with that quote from Sue, I will wait to see pics of the colours she had chosen then give her the go-ahead!!

well good and bad news. The good news is that my dressmaker is great, shes nice and friendly has great ideas and will do what i want. The bad news is that i cant find the colour i want in the material i need. I went to a few fabric store - one with her so i know what to look out for. I did find some material but need her to check it out. Its abit thinner than the ones we looked at. Its a purple-pink colour (not too purple not too pink, just right!! LOL) Fingers crosses that i can use it. And it happens to be twice as much as the other fabrics we looked at too which is a bit of a bummer..

Snickers, bummer about the dress fabric! In the end if it's what you want and she says OK, will you go ahead with it?

Glad to hear that all is OK with the job Michelle. I work full time and still hang out for my pay, which is only monthly...

Kathy, I see what you mean about the dress and mum's options. I have talked about it with her, and she is OK with it. She doesnt have an outfit yet anyway.

I love Amanda's bouquet - great idea about using it with the invitations too.

I am just thinking that if I have the girls in black, then it will mean that I will have to have bright coloured flowers, but if I have the grey/silver dresses, then I will be able to get lighter pink flowers for them. I have decided on pale pink and white roses for us, me with more white than pink, and them with more pink than white. But I will also have to wait until the dress arrives, so that I can check out the colours of the beading in the sun. Can't be too careful!

I found the shoes that I love... Italian, Crystals.... matching price tag. they're about twice the price of my dress. I think not. if Glenn was worried about me spending a grand on a dress, I doubt that I would be able to spend it on a pair of shoes... oh well.

I even tried searching Ebay in the hope someone wanted to recoup some money on theirs, but alas no.

I have spoken to one bridesmaid about the intendd change of dress colour, and she is happy with the idea, agrees that it would be better if i am wanting to have light pink flowers.

I am happy with that anyway.

We thought that if we cant get the dress in that colour, then we might see what's around in patterns and get them made. So goes the plan anyway. Still have to consult with the other two though.

I'm in the middle of an argument with Glenn because he came home from work with an attitude and got cranky because I hadnt put the rubbish bin in the back lane... hello, it's about the only house work that he does.

Anyways, I heard back from the GM of that company, I have an interview in Wollongong next Saturday the 10th... Thought that I might check out what Kate is up to and see if she's free for lunch. Wanna come down to the Gong for the arvo Jo?

I texted Kate on the weekend, but got no reply! Will try again now
