DIY Project Bridal Bow Shoes, Since the time I looked at my own special pair of Aminah Abdul Jillil Pink Bow Pumps, I needed a couple in dark. Since I am on a careful spending plan (and as of late spend my shopping cash on a certain Torn by Ronny Kobo dress) I have depended on doing a bow siphons DIY venture. This undertaking is excessively basic and permits you to wear your cherished heels with or without a monster bow.

I had an idea in my mind for making these pumps to DIY bridal shoes when I purchased them on a sale. I am gonna use some glitter and lace to decorate it.

These are the things which I will need,

  1. shoes
  2. scissors
  3. ribbon (any color) at least 12 inches long
  4. glue
  5. masking tape
  6. glitter
  7. newspaper
  8. paintbrush or sponge

Step 1: for the cap-toe

Use the tape to correct the line where the glue will go. Start with one shoe at a time. Apply glue paintbrush or your finger. Once evenly spread, apply glitter. Let it dry for at least an hour.

Now carefully peel off the tape after one hour.

Step 2: For the bow

make sure your ribbon is long enough to wrap around your ankle and tie in a bow. Put the shoe on, clasp the buckle, then tie the ribbon around your ankle. Make a knot with the ribbon around the buckle to hide it, and then tie your bow.

Here you go…

Now let’s go to the most important shopping of one of the special day in a life…i.e wedding gown shopping

Here I will share my experience of buying a gown…

I went wedding dress shopping last weekend without the intention of ever buying a dress. I was probably every consultant’s worst nightmare. But guess what? I bought one.

I never expected it to become a battle between what I think I wanted and what I really want.

I started off at Bryan’s Bride, which has a vast selection of traditional gowns. Lace, beading, satin, bows. You name it, they’ve got it. The store is brightly lit with tons of room and a clean, spacious fitting room. My consultant Irene was super helpful and sweet, and she patiently laced me into each dress.

I must have tried on 10 dresses or so. My favorite was a sweetheart A-line gown with a corset back. It cinched me in, in all the right places.

Unfortunately, I’m having a lunch wedding at a restaurant and it just didn’t seem to fit my venue. I never pictured myself as a traditional bride. I was aiming for romantic, whimsical, flowy, and ethereal; yet this dress was elegant, formal, traditional, and kind of sexy. It had lace and I love lace. Most of all, it gave a great shape to my body.

So, my friends and I hopped on a Skytrain and headed for New Westminster to a store named Golden Brides—a store my friend Tina strongly recommended. Both of her sisters bought their dresses there.

When I walked in, I was greeted with row upon row of dresses. It looked more like a stockroom than a bridal salon. I browsed for a good 20 minutes and didn’t like anything. The fitting rooms were curtained off sections, not actual rooms. Nobody helped me in and out of dresses except for my best friend Maya.

Out of curiosity, I looked at a rack of bridesmaids dresses. I grabbed a flowy white gown to try on, mostly for fun. It had a ruched bodice and an empire waist.

Maya zipped me in and I stepped onto the pedestal. A sales associate wrapped a crystal belt around my waist. I gasped. It was so beautiful, it took my breath away.

When she placed a veil on me, I cried. My girlfriends hopped up from the couch and hugged me.

“You cried in it so now you have to get it!” my girlfriends exclaimed.

I tried on so many traditional wedding dresses that looked phenomenal, but none of them came close to making me feel like this one did. I tried to be a traditional bride, but I just didn’t feel like it was me.

I can’t post my real dress here, but it very much looks like this gown by Jenny Yoo.

I can’t believe I have a dress. It’s all so surreal. One day I didn’t have a dress, the next day, I do!

I learned to trust my gut and choose the gown I really wanted, instead of the gown I thought I wanted. You really can’t judge a book by its cover. Golden Brides doesn’t give you the full-service salon experience, but it gets the job done. To top it off, I got a phenomenal price—the dress, the crystal sash, and the alterations cost me under $500. It’s about half the price of my original budget of $1000.
