We’re eight weeks away from wedding #1 and getting super excited. The joy of getting my dress was short lived when I went in to get it hemmed. While standing as the seamstress was pinning the hem I got a clear shot of ye old backside and noticed that something wasn’t quite right. I had the seamstress take a look and she called in another person to look at it.
The dress still fit but there was a pucker in the zipper in a most precarious spot. The two of them came to the conclusion that the zipper was crooked and they would have to order another dress for me. At least they didn’t tell me it wasn’t in stock that would have sent me over the edge. I was reassured that the latest date of delivery would be the end of June, but who knows it could arrive within two days or two weeks. Are you kidding me? The wedding is July 18th and it would still have to be hemmed.
When I initially tried the dress on I didn’t notice anything wrong. Maybe it was my excitement about finally finding a dress, who knows. What I do know is that the bride to be and I will be on pins and needles until that dress gets here. In the meantime I needed to do something wedding related to ease my disappointment. Putting together this gold and white wedding table fit the bill.
I covered a six foot banquet table with an ivory polyester cloth. The gold rosette runners (which I’ve wanted for a long time) are from efavormart.com as are the chair sashes over the white chair covers. The sashes were also used on my Cosmopolitan table. Don’t you just love items that serve double duty? The table centerpieces were placed at the back or front depending on which side you’re standing on. I used gold candelabra in the center and on each side a tall blinged out ivory votive holder. These little lovelies were $7.48 on clearance at Michaels a couple of months ago. On the right I used a crackled glass hurricane and on the left two spiral base votive holders. Small gold votives add more sparkle and illumination. Ivory mums are used to fill in the spaces at the bottom of the candelabra, hurricane and spiral votives.
Each setting begins with a large gold charger which holds a white dinner plate, gold salad plate, and a squarish dessert plate. A white lined napkin with a floral cutout is held together with a gold monogrammed napkin ring which is a match to the flatware. For the stemware I sat out a gold banded cordial glass, ribbed champagne goblet and another one for water.
I’m going to do my best to keep busy and not watch my phone trying to will a call from the bridal shop. I will also get busy looking my dress for wedding #2 in September. Wish me luck!!
These are the linky parties I participate in. Drop by and show them a little love!
