Who's have thought it? How many shades of ivory are there?? My shoes and handbag are JUST a shade or two darker than the dress!!!!
Now, to be honest, I couldn't care less. I think you would have to be looking pretty damn close at my feet to notice the difference in the shades, although Fay and the dress-maker were making it out to be an utter desaster, asking if I wanted to exchange the shoes, which I don't. OK, so the handbag is more visable to the avaerage punter than the shoes under my dress, but it's not like I'm going to be carrying it every where with me. I wont be using it in the ceremony, it wont be in the wedding photos, just keeping my bits and bobs in it for the evening do.... So I don't care that when you look close you can see a difference. Shesh! I'd end up having to take a scrap of dress to all the shoe shops with me, and I really don't want to be that obsessive!
So with that sorted out we went ahead with the dress measurements and hoop sizes and all maner of other stuff i don't mind amitting I didn't understand.
I was asked what style of embroidery I wanted on the dress (shows what I know, I thought it was just what was on the dress I tried on, but it seems I can choose a different one). I showed them the photo of the celti ring that me and Yorkie like - the angula one - and asked if that could be incorperated into the embroidery and they seem to think that it should be ok. That would be great! If I manage to get the same design as the rings onto the dress.... how lovely would that be? OK, so only me and Yorkie woul really know, but I think that would be quite special!
I should get "my design" through the post in a few days, so I'll scan it in and show you all. Don't worry, Yorkie doesn't view this blog so he wont be seeing the dress! I just want to share it with you all!
