The silk georgette became...

...my Vanuatu elopement dress!

    1. Thank you Kathleen!

      My hilarious secret is that the resort wanted to charge A$100 for a bouquet, but I bought this one from the fruit market across the road for 200 vatu (about $2.80)... I'm still giggling about that :-)

  6. Welcome back and congratulations!!!!! Bummer about the food poisoning, but if I were you I would giggle each time I saw that picture and think of how you stopped the hotel from scamming you out of 90+ dollars!! hehe, it's a gorgeous bouquet. And didn't that georgette turn out wonderfully! All that time spend ruching it in place certainly paid off!!! Can't wait to see and hear more about the dress :) xx

      The georgette was definitely worth the fiddling around, it felt wonderful and I do like the way it flows...

  18. Congrats! What a gorgeous dress. It sounds like you have the same theory on getting married as I do! The difference was that we were looking at the Cook Islands.... or just the registry office!

    You made a beautiful wedding dress, you both look gorgeous. I look forward to the catch-up in October!
