We’ll get to THAT loveliness in a minute…
Before I address the pretty going on in this post, I have a few factoids/tips/comments to make, so bear with:
I missed the Bachelor this week. A) I know, I can’t believe I wanna watch this crap but, B) DON’T TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED.
RANDOM SERIOUS TIP: Brides, please don’t try to get *skinny* for your wedding day. Getting in shape is a noble goal, but skinny doesn’t look as good as you think it does in photos. In fact it’s the first thing I notice, and it makes me sad to see. Also, losing that little bit of extra weight between your final fitting and your wedding day can often mean a too large dress on a too thin body. Slightly disastrous, if you’re a stickler about your dress properly fitting your hot bod on your Big Day. Which I am. (Nerves can cause this, too, so do your best to stay calm – yeah right – during that interim period of time. We’ll call it “nuptial limbo.” Yeah, I like the ring of that.)
Ok, now that I’ve got that off my chest, let’s get to the good stuff…
We heart Lauren, *this much* (arms spread wide apart, depicting the largest amount of love possible). She’s two very wonderful things: incredibly caring and loving, and mindblowingly creative. Oh, I mean three things… she’s also, as you know, our DIY contributor. And we’re sooo lucky to have her here with us twice a month! But she’s got so much more to her, and I’d like to take this opportunity to give all of you a little peek into her wedding crafting world of wonders.
Try to resist buying up 100 of these babies for your wedding day.
That’s right… she’ll make them for you. You can get them here.
She also makes ALL OF THIS…
You might remember her silhouette lace garland from this gorgeous DIY project she did for us.
… Well, Lauren can make it for you, too. :) Check it out here.
These Vintage Silhouette and Sheet Music Wedding Paddles are also from that DIY project…
She also makes radtastic photobooth props, my dears…
… which you can grab here.
Quick fire round:
Can you tell we really love Lauren here? Because she’s kind of a big deal. :)
So, you know how we feel… tell us, how do you feel about Lauren? :)
xoxo! – Alison
