012 - My flowers are coming alive!!



After half hour folding, this is the partial result, we timed each flower. In order to know how much work we will have left, and guess what? I have 25 long hours of folding waiting, but that's if i fold all by myself!!

We skip the final part for now cause they need to be ready for the trip, once they are in California they can bloom to they final beautiful stage.

So now the question is " Would you fold with me PLEASEEEE!??"

Here the tutorial again just in case (Link)

011 - Eco-Friendly!!

Ok I couldn't help it and I did some quick 4 hour research (oohh my I need to stay away from the computer!) about Eco-friendly stuff, one of my favorites are this Blossoms that can be turn in to so many different things. I already have a big and cool idea of what I'll do with this, but I'm not revealing until I can show it better. So just keep those bottoms in mind and if you live in California, please help me save them!!! I don't want to look like a really weird girl that travels with tons of those with her, instead of clothes hehe

010 - Hold our cake please?

I haven't been able to search for a lot of ideas lately, until today :), I saw this cuteeee cake stand posted on Once wed (Link) that I showed Mr. poodle right away; he loved it!! and he actually wants to make one for us, so yaaayy!! I´m checking that out of my list and typing it into his hehe (evil smile)

The cool thing, it even has a tutorial (Link) That I -really fast- emailed to Mr. Poodle :) even tho I know there's no need for it, because he already said "Baby don't worry that's a piece of cake". I'm so excited to see how our cake stand ends up looking :)

So is your Mr. helping you with DIY projects? If so - are you just giving him the "easiest" ones? Or he get's to pick what he does?


009 - So the top 3 (so far) ARE!!!!

This are my favorites TOP 3 "real wedding" from OnceWed, I'm becoming a huge fan of this site, along with Weddingbee.

008 - Flores de Arcilla

I Found this really cool blog call Blossoms (Link) and I felt in love with their deco clay flowers, want to see? look.




Aren't they cute?

Well, after looking at tons of pictures of clay flowers and bouquets I decided I will immerse myself into the clay world and work on my very own bouquet. Ive never worked with clay before so I know it can't be as good as those, they are "CLAY MASTERS!" but on the other hand I've pretty much teach myself every technique I know :)

I feel that it will mean so much to me to make my own bouquet - I wanted to make an origami one at first. So this could be another cute option.



I'm going shopping for material tomorrow and I'll start experimenting, once I decided what I will be doing, I'm going to post the process and instructions.
I sound like I have a lot of faith on my future clay skills lol, and I haven't even work with it yet, but I have a good felling about this, so cross your fingers for me (yay!)

Have you tried to learn something just so you can use it at your wedding?

005 - Cute for the ladies

I've been researching for the girl's dresses, just to have ideas I can show them later. And ask them about what they think is comfortable or will feel comfortable using for the wedding.

My mom actually offered to make them, but I'm not sure about how much time she will have available for that, that for I'm not planning 100% on that.

Here the ones that cough my attention: ( Just the shapes, not all the colors)

I can imagine all of this on a purple and green combination of colors :) it gets me so excited!

Now if I could manage to make those with my mom it would be soooo cool, not just because we could pick the fabric and colors, but because we could costume make them, each one could choose what best fits them based on their body types :) Keep dreaming Miss Poodle! I need a clone to do everything I'm planning on doing hehe

Are you suggesting your maids what to wear? if so how are you approaching them and are they paying for the dresses themselves?

004 - Here comes THE DRESS!


So as some of you know, I'm designing and making my own wedding dress, but the sewing part it's not as bad as having to decide over a million kind of shapes!

After tons of research and as I share with you here I decided to get some inspiration by well known wedding designers and narrow down to 3. I actually started last month and by now I have the bottom part completely done and I'm working on the top (pictures soon) yay!

Now because our venue ( Mr. Poodle's Granparent's ranch) is really dusty I decided to go with the simple plain puffy tulle bottom, so that way the fabric wont catch as much durst as the other choices I had.

But the top is not going to be like the picture your about to see, so don't worry I'll have the "girls" well covered ;)














♥ The dress!!

This is one of the signature dresses by my favorite designer Monique Lhuillier : Swan Lake.

I don't remember the Designer but sure gets close to my idea


As for the hair picture big waves and a flower on the side, sounds so much like my dream hairstyle :)

Pictures by bios on the knot

I'm not really a "pearls" king of girl, actually I don't have anything with pearls on them, but I feel so tempted when I see this kind of pictures!!

by Redot Design

I also wanted color shoes, I can't help but jump on the "color shoes wagon". I wasn't sure about the color, either green or purple. (My feet want to wear purple - but I feel bad I'm leaving Mr. Poodle's color behind :) )

Don't you feel like after you know the kind of dress you want, all the other " look ideas" that pop every second to your head, start to make sense?
