Prenuptially Occupied

Okay I am finally ready to post more wedding preparation pics. I've been a little wedding-crafty-DIY crazy for the past few weeks. 

The Dress:
Before 

Frederick would not get out of the shot and since I love him I didn't crop him out. 
After

I was so excited to finally get the feathers added on. Now I just need to figure out if I'm going to shorten it or not. It's tea length, but since I have stubby legs it's a little long for me. I just need to find a black tule or crinoline slip to go under it. It needs to show through the bottom so about an inch longer than the dress. So whether or not I shorten it depends on the slip. If anyone knows where I can get a black slip like that locally that would be fab!

I decided to make my own earrings since I couldn't find any that I liked and since I had most of the supplies on hand I decided to go for it. 
Here they are:

That's Ty's very sexy inked-out arm that I just had to use for a background. He was very thoughtful sitting still while I rearranged them 200 times. He's so patient with me. The pic is a little fuzzy, but I am still an amateur.

The Boutonnieres:

Ty's Boutonniere:

The Shoes which are actually purple inside not pink, whatever:

This is the Wedding cake topper that I want (Oh I will buy it, mark my words):

Thanks to everyones kindness.

So my cousin Shelby sent me a link to this place that has fantastic tulle slips and after looking at them over about 500 times I decided that I am going to copy theirs and make my own. Cross your fingers for me.
