Wedding photos

 The dress!  My DD designed and made her wedding dress herself. She used over 30 meters of fabric. The train fabric is hundreds of laser cut chiffon petals with hand sewn diamantes in the centre of each flower. The train fabric came from Italy.

Photo heavy post!!

 The bridal party.

 The bodice of the dress was draped chiffon and decorated with diamante motifs.

A family photo with DS, new DSIL, DD, me and DH.

 Cutting the cake.  Also below the cake, the venue and the bride's bouquet. My sister did all the bridal party and cake flowers .


 The week before the wedding we had a traditional Laotian Baci ceremony for the couple. The first photo shows them dressed in traditional costume. I made my DD's clothes. The skirt and scarf are from traditional wedding fabric and were sent from Laos especially. The green silk my DSIL is wearing belonged to my FIL and my DH also wore it when we had a Baci before we were married. The second photo shows them sharing food as they will now share their lives together.

Both days were a huge success. :)

It is wedding day today!!

Today my DD gets married to the love of her life!

The sun is shining and it looks like we will have perfect weather.

My DD finished her dress yesterday, so it will be a surprise for everyone.

The photos above were taken yesterday during the rehearsal at the wedding venue. Just above the roses in the top photograph you can see a glimpse of the bay.

I will post some wedding photos in a few days.
