Our DIY, Vintage-Inspired, Halloween Wedding.

Ok, so I've been mostly lurking and not posting. So here's a big update post!

I finished the bouquets and bout's (in order below, MOH, bridesmaid, mine), the flower girl's pomander, and the parent's corsages.



We printed RSVP postcards from vistaprint, and got 100, but I only needed 70. So I am in the midst of repurposing the left-over post-cards into mtachbook covers!

 
We ended up ordering invites from etsy, but they were so darn cool I couldn't resist!  http://www.etsy.com/listing/37541847/baroque-elegance-skull-invitations

My aunt is making my dress , here's my pattern:

Now I just need to decide if I want white or black polkadots!


I bought a bunch of makeup and have been practicing, no pics of me yet, but here's Dita, my inspiration:



Our tablescapes (rectangular tables) will have black linens, a central skull, and grouped pillar candles, with faux pearl beads criss-crossing along the lnegth. 


I think thats it for now!  We still have to order DF's suit (I'll hem it myself), and we bought Tommy guns and cigars for the men
(Their inspiration below).


And I have been toying with the idea of making my own veil, but need to figure out A) how my hair will be the day of, and B)How to  make a veil!
