foot freak

oh man. has anyone else had as much wedding shoe flim flam as i've had?!

i can't believe i have spent so long looking for these bloody shoes - -it's ridiculous! and makes me feel like a mad, detail obsessed freak, which i'm not.... but i wanted them to be right you know?!

for me the shoes are a big thing as i'm in a short dress. so they are out there for everyone to see.

as my main colour is yellow i thought yellow sandals with a little heel would be sweet. nothing too fussy, just cute and vintag-ey to go with the dress... simple right? wrong.

apparently there are no cute yellow shoes out there in UK shoe land (except on the wedding blogs, where they were freaking everywhere, but they were actually vintage so no go there). in the end i found some cute shoes online, however as the cute shoe gods hate me, the website only shipped to the USA. do i know anyone in the USA who i could hit up for some shoe help? nope. but my boss does. so i got them shipped to her friend's house, who then took them with him to her wedding in italy last week. she then brought them from italy back to the UK and into the office today.

palaver no?! but look how cute they are!

what are you doing/did you do for your wedding shoes?

the paper

ok, so here's another real wedding post. i have been working my little fingers to the bone making our australian wedding invitations and i want to share!

first up though, i'll show you our STD that we emailed out earlier in the year...

the original idea for this was the bike, which i know is all over blog-land, however, the boy and i are actual bike enthusiasts. i cycle to and from work everyday, we cycle everywhere together on the weekends and between us we own 5 bikes... one of which is a tandem. dorksville i know.

anyway, the rest came from collaborating with a friend at work and finessing the design together.

then came the actual mail out invitation. we wanted something fun and unique - something that would set the tone for the day. so i was snooping over at evie's blog and i saw this, it was just so adorable, i knew i wanted to work with the general idea to create our invite. cue my email her to begging to be able to use the design. as she is lovely and generous she said yes and we had our starting point.

we made some changes to the way the card opens, background design and layout etc. so, without further ado, here they are...

please excuse the dodgy photos, after 6 hours of cutting out the pop up section with a craft knife my care factor on the photos was pretty low.
