Wedding Wednesday

I've mentioned previously my troubles of finding the perfect wedding dress....the solution: make my own! :-) Things are going well with that so when it came down to it, I decided to go ahead and make the bridesmaid dresses while I was at it. With the help of my Mom, we are going to churn out 8 super cute dresses, with different patterned fabric of course!
I have bridesmaids all over the country (and world!) so in order for the dresses to fit without having formal "fittings," I have composed a newsletter to send out that includes their own measuring tape with instructions. I've also attached swatch samples of fabric I am thinking about. My goal is to use different fabric that is within the same shade of orange. Anyway, below are the swatches I have picked up thus far.Of course for "Wedding Wednesday" I couldn't help but make another inspiration board! It is one of my favorite things...collage together beautiful details!

I really want the dress on the top right. It looks like it would feel lovely.

the large floral pin on the yellow sash is tops. it does look amazing in the photo, and even wearable to a picnic later on in the summer!
