Here’s our wedding party (Pic above)

I had two Maids of Honor and four bridesmaids, my six best friends who all live in other countries so unfortunately, two of them couldn’t be there ; and one Best Man, my Son!

He had one Best Man (His Best Friend) and two Maids of Honor (His Sisters)

We had Three Flower Girls (Our nieces) and two Flower Boys (Our nephews)

Here one of my Bridesmaids, Lisa, taping some hair of hers and others inside my dress. Legend has it that when single girls tape their hair to a Bride’s dress they’ll get married within the year! We’ll see…. :))))

IT’S CALLED BZGETTINGHITCHED –  My Something Blue

My Something Old was my Spanx (LOL)

My Something New was The Dress, The shoes, The Veil and so on….

My Something Borrowed was my Mommy’s earrings

And for my Something Blue I cut a little Heart from a Blue shirt of my Dad and sew it in the dress on the actual Wedding Day ❤

I thought I should share this little DIY full of sentimental value for you Brides To Be!

Enjoy!

Love,

B.

****

Mon Something Old était ma gaine Spanx (Très classe!)

Mon Something New était bien évidemment ma Robe, mes chaussures, mon voile etc….

Mon Something Borrowed étaient les boucles d’oreille de ma Maman

Et pour mon Somehting Blue j’ ai demandé une chemise bleue á mon Papa, dans laquelle j’ai découpé un petit Coeur que j’ai cousu á l’intérieur de ma robe le Jour J ❤

J’ai adoré cette idée et je me suis dit que ce serait bien de la partager avec toutes les mariées qui aiment un DIY de grande valeur sentimentale!

Enjoy!

Love,

B.

****

O meu Something Old foi a cinta que levei da Spanx (LOL)

O meu Something New foi obviamente o vestido, os sapatos o véu, etc….

O meu Something Borrowed foram os brincos da minha Mãe

E para o meu Something Blue pedi uma camisa azul ao meu Pai, recortei um coraçãozinho nela e cozi-o dentro do vestido no dia do casamento ❤

Achei que devia partilhar esta ideia cheia de significado para todas as noivas que gostem de um pequeno DIY!

Love,

B.

IT’S CALLED BZGETTINGHITCHED – THE Dress

image

This is a great quote that illustrates perfectly how I felt about my dress. It says : “If you feel goose bumps on your skin without it being touched, it means a YES from your soul”

I didn’t have any idea of the dress I wanted. I kept browsing the internet only to gather images of so many different styles that I couldn’t clearly identify what I wanted. I was in for a long search. Or so I thought….

I made a few appointments at different stores for the same week and the first one was at Jenny Packham. I loved a lot of her gowns but there was one specifically that I really wanted to try on. When we got there, the lady had prepared the dress I asked to see, but she looked at me and immediately picked up another one and said I should try it on. I took the dress she gave me but still wanted to check the others at the store. 

When I got to the dressing room, the first dress that was given to me to try on wasn’t the one I previously wanted to see, I obliged and decided to try this one anyway.

When I got in front of the mirror I can’t even exactly describe how I felt. It was so overwhelming, I have no words. Goose bumps all over, tears in my eyes, princess thoughts in my mind, and of course HIM. I could see my Love look at me walking down the aisle. I stood there, crying with my best friend and maid of honor, and even got a tear out of the sales lady. She said she saw me in the dress as soon as I entered the store :) I thought those things only happened in movies but apparently not!

I then thought, ok, maybe this is happening because I had never seen myself in a wedding dress. Maybe it’s not just the dress. So I started to try on a few others I had selected. 

The one I originally wanted to try on, I didn’t like on me. They had a ton of beautiful dresses and I tried them all on and NONE made me feel as the first one did.

So I knew right then and there it was THE ONE. 

I canceled all the appointments I had at the other stores, and that’s how, in minutes, I chose my wedding dress.

It is the “Dentelle” by Jenny Packham

See for yourself,

Love,

Esta frase enquadra se perfeitamente na historia da escolha do meu vestido de noiva…. :)

Não tinha ideia nenhuma daquilo que queria. Quando decidi começar a ver vestidos, fui vendo na net e seleccionando algumas fotos de vestidos que gostava. Nessa seleção havia tantos estilos diferentes que eu não conseguia identificar aquilo que queria realmente. Preparava se uma grande “busca”, pensava eu….

Quando decidi começar a experimentar marquei para a mesma semana várias provas em lojas de marcas diferentes. A primeira foi na Jenny Packham. Havia muitos vestidos dela que eu gostava mas especialmente um que queria muito experimentar. Quando lá chegámos, já tinham de lado o vestido que eu queria, mas a senhora que nos atendeu olhou para mim e pegou logo noutro vestido. Seleccionei mais uns quantos e quando fui para o provador o primeiro que me foi entregue foi o tal que a senhora me tinha sugerido. 

Quando saí e me olhei ao espelho… Nem consigo bem descrever aquilo que senti. Arrepios, muita emoção, lágrimas nos olhos, pensamentos de princesa na cabeça e sobretudo ELE. Via-o a olhar para mim enquanto caminhava para o altar :) Fiquei ali a chorar, com a minha melhor amiga e madrinha, e até uma lagrimita da senhora da loja que disse que assim que me viu entrar, viu NESSE vestido. Pensei que essas coisas só acontecessem nos filmes mas não!

Mesmo assim, ainda achei que essa emoção toda se devia ao facto de nunca me ter visto de noiva antes e que talvez sentisse a mesma coisa com outros vestidos.

Experimentei aquele que tinha seleccionado de inicio (Que não me ficava nada bem) e mais um montão deles, todos lindos, mas nenhum me fez nem de perto o efeito que o primeiro me fez.

Percebi logo aí que tinha encontrado O VESTIDO. Desmarquei todas as provas que tinha marcado para essa semana, e foi assim que em minutos escolhi o meu vestido de Noiva :)

É o “Dentelle” da Jenny Packham

Love,

B.

I had my hair up for the ceremony because I wanted the details in the back to be more visible, and took the veil off and let my hair down right after it.

I also fell in Love with this hairpiece at Jenny Packhamimage

IT’S CALLED #BZgettingHitched – The Bachelorette

As you may know, I got married last March. Everything was as I had envisioned it and I had been meaning to share some of it with you guys. So, for starters, here’s a glimpse at my Bachelorette :)

I always said I didn’t want one, or at least not a traditional one. I was thinking more of a girls getaway or something and it was apparently the first idea. (I say apparently, because I wasn’t the one planning this, my best friend/Maid of Honor was.) 

The getaway was the first plan but as my closest friends are in several different countries it was a bit difficult to bring everyone together. As I am a real “Girly” girl and love everything beauty, what better idea that bring all the girls together for a pamper night?!

They closed the salon I normally go to and it was soooo much fun! Of course they had the whole pink wigs and feathers planned, and I had made t-shirts for myself and the bridesmaids. All matching, we went and spent a really fun night with cocktails, dancing, massages, manicures and girly talks of course!

I really have to take a minute here to thank my best friend Grin once again, for organising it all, from another country, not knowing the place or anyone there. You rock Girl, Love you ;))))

PS : Sorry, the pics, they are not the best as I was more focused on enjoying my night than taking pictures :P)

Como sabem, casei em Março passado. O casamento foi exactamente como o tinha pensado, planeado, imaginado, enfim, amei! Daí querer partilhar um bocado com vocês.

Começamos com a despedida de solteira….

Sempre disse que não queria despedida de solteira, ou pelo menos não uma “tradicional”. Estava mais virada para uma viagem entre girls por exemplo. E isso foi o plano inicial pelos vistos. (Digo pelos vistos, porque não fui eu a organizar esta parte, foi a minha melhor amiga/Dama de Honor)

Infelizmente esse plano tornou se muito complicado porque as minhas amigas mais próximas vivem em vários países e era muito complicado juntarmo-nos todas para ir para fora. Deixámos então a despedida de solteira para quando todas chegassem a Portugal.
Uma vez que sou muito “girly”, adoro tudo o que é noites de amigas, conversas, mudas de verniz e máscaras na cara enquanto se põe a conversa em dia, surgiu a ideia de fechar o cabeleireiro onde vou habitualmente e ficarmos quase como em casa :)

E aqui, mais uma vez, tenho que agradecer á minha melhor amiga Grin que organizou isto tudo por emails e telefonemas desde Paris, sem conhecer o sitio nem ninguém :)))) Love you Girl ;)

Foi uma ideia fantástica! Claro que tive direito a peruca cor de rosa, plumas e etc… e eu tinha mandado fazer para elas t-shirts Bridesmaids, Maid of Honor e para mim Bride. E todas de igual lá fomos nós para uma noite divertidissima com cocktails, dança, massagens, manicures brushings e muita muita conversa :)

Enjoy :)

Love,

B.

(PS : Peço desculpa pela qualidade das fotos mas estava mais preocupada em me divertir e aproveitar a noite do que andar com o iphone na mão :P)

Love,

B.
