A Christmas Wedding

Doing that Craftsy class was a marvelous adventure, but aside from mentioning a quietly placed 20% discount link in the side bar, it is past time for me to move on to another topic.

My son announced recently that he is engaged!

He and his lovely bride-to-be have been dating for a while, so the real kicker to this announcement is that he's given us a whole 6 weeks to prepare! Yikes. Coming off the Craftsy event (which as set me back quite a bit)  I get to squeeze in a couple more things! I am excited about planning for a Christmas themed reception/open house for early December. Take a look at my Pinterest board of ideas:

But you know the real question going through my mind is...WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR??

You'll not be surprised to know the colors are green, red and gold. I found this green knit that I think I'd like to use. It's been rumpled up in my laundry basket, waiting for a wash, and it's not iridescent, but this photo makes it look as though it were.

I was contemplating a shorter version of Serenata.

What do you think?

You'll eventually see me working on a retrofit of this dress that the brides mother was married in.
