The "Pucci" wedding is shaping up nicely. With the new venue, my event designer/florist extraordinaire has implemented some truly FABULOUS new ideas which include these oversized "lampshades" trimmed with the Pucci fabric and dripping with orchids... a crystal curtain to divide the dining area from the "Dessert Library" lounge area. I'm so excited, I'm about to burst!
The only thing was was a little problematic was the acquiring the Pucci fabric. Initially, I had found the real stuff at a fabric store.. for a mind numbing $60.00 per yard. Uhhh no.
I continued to search fabric stores for something at least similar in coloring and pattern, to no avail.
Finally, I came across a company that makes digital prints on fabric. Sounds like just the ticket. I emailed my unusual request, "a Pucci-esque pattern, inspired by the Pucci Marine Spring 2008 line but not an exact copy - incorporating the colors of midnight blue, aqua, butter, sand, black and white"
I got a sample yard from the company and I was beyond thrilled with the result! I didn't even request the type of material, which they printed on a silk-like, semi-lustrous charmeuse. It's simply beautiful!
Wanna see?? Here it is!
The photos does it NO justice though. It's absolutely divine in person. Everytime I look at it, I can't stop smiling. My Treasure said I should make a skirt or dress out of it. After the wedding.. I just might.
