DIY Debs

Debs for us Irish girls is as big a deal as your wedding- well maybe not THAT big of a deal but still some girls do go all out! As this is my second debs, and I have another one next year I didn't want to spend a lot of money; actually I didn't want to spend any money! So me being me went all DIY on it! 

All my accessories are items I already owned, I did my hair and make-up myself also.The material I decided to use for  my dress was given to my mam a few years ago when a shop was closing down so it cost me nothing. I actually only started my dress the week before the debs because I just couldn't get motivated. Thankfully my mam was amazing and helped me out a little as I had to work the days leading up to it!  Unfortunately my boyfriend couldn't go, but he still got me this beautiful corsage, daisies are my favourite flower, I thought it was gorgeous. What do you think? 
In the making.

Awkward posing in the finished product. I refused to put on shoes!
My gorgeous corsage.
How do you think the dress turned out? Is anyone else finding it hard to get motivated to get dressed up? Or are you going DIY on an event or doing it on a budget? Id love to hear about all your thriftiness!

Lots of Love,
Katie xx
