In my notebook today

Hello everyone!
Today I wanted to share with you pictures from my "wedding notebook".
You may wonder what do I mean by "wedding notebook"... it is the place where I kept all the inspiration (photos, texts etc...) to design my wedding two years ago. It took place in France, in the country side and we were living in Bangkok, Thailand at that time so it was not very easy to organize...

Lace, silk, embroideries, crystal beads...

The setting of the wedding was in the beautiful French country side, so I wanted something chic and stylish but still very laid back. For my dress, I was naturally drawn to lace, silk and Swarovski crystals for the embroidery. My dress was made-to-order at Jeremiah Boutique in Bangkok and it was exactly what I had in mind (except that my initial plan was to wear a soft-pink dress in silk).

I got my invitation printed at Viriya, a stationery shop located in the Chinatown area of Bangkok. It was lovely although I couldn't get my own design made for budget reasons :(
As you can see on their website though they have loads of great designs and I could easily find something suitable.

How about you? are you compiling photos and magazine pages in a notebook when you are planning an event, or just for fun? if you are not yet doing it, maybe it is time to go through all the magazines that are piling up in your storage room and only keep those pages that inspire you...

Wow, you're so organized and I love your wedding book! So, you design jewelries, too? I didn't even think about creating a mood board or inspiration book until I took the blogging course. That's how disorganized I am! You have already done that which to me you show you are made to be a blogger! I LOVE your wedding dress. Your daughter's so cute. 'Wedding in France' Many people's dream!
