Planning Barbie’s Big Day

Well, Barbie is not quite ready for her big day as she hasn’t even met Ken yet, and he certainly hasn’t figured out what he is wearing! But at least the girls are sorted,  the bridesmaids are already chosen!
Oh yes, Barbie has her priorities straight, doesn’t she? She knows what she will wear and she will look Fabulous!!!


This is my contribution to the Wedding blog party hosted by Angelic Accents, I hope it gives a little giggle. I hand crochet all the doll dresses myself and each have a blog post. The White wedding dress, Strapless pullon dress, Teal Dress and the Pink Dress were all inspired by a doll dress I still have from my childhood that was made by my grandmother.

This post is tongue in cheek because my partner and I agree we want to be married officially before our baby arrives, but all we have done so far is get our rings, we can’t seem to bring ourselves to organise anything else!

I hope you liked my little wedding blog party post!

    This is so cute and it did give me a giggle. Barbie looks so beautiful and so she does have her priorities straight, lol. I wish you well in the planning for the wedding. I would recommend something stress free, like getting married at the Justice of the Peace and having a small dinner party at a nice restaurant for closest family or friends. Alternatively, a nice small beach (destination) wedding would be nice and you can relax in the same spot afterward. I’m dying now to hear all about your wedding plans 😉

    This is such an absolutely adorable post! You do know that I got my start in romantic dreaming by dressing my Barbies in clothes my grandmother created, too, so we have LOTS in common! :0) Love those sweet crocheted pieces! How long does it take you to make each one?

    Best wishes on your upcoming wedding and congrats on the sweet new little life you are creating. Please keep us updated on your wedding plans. Such a fun event to plan for!!

    Big Hugs,

    Hello, Teena
    I don’t speak english very well.I’m sorry.
    But I’m a barbie lover and I see your dolls(are lovely).
    I also do crochet and I am a collector of Barbies
    Unfortunately, here in Brazil do not reach all models of Mattel, due to high taxes and the barbies here is the high price.
    But I always likes barbies.
    Bye bye.
