|i was smiling so big thinking it was ALL over with!|
|taking the dress in even more!|
|wishing i didn't have a silk dress at this point ha|
|About to try on the dress!|
|totally related unrelated business, baby boy was finally home the day i was supposed to pick up my dress!|
Ok... So, growing up- I never had a vision about what I walked down the aisle in. I am a really simple girl, but don't misunderstand that as not girly... I am definitely girly! I LOVE bows. I love pleats. I love soft white, not diamond white. I love curves. I love dainty buttons. This dress had everything I wanted. I loved the lack of rhinestones and sequins and any other thing that dressed it up. It seemed so classic to me. Something I could show my kids and not think, "oh geez, what was momma thinking?!?" Who knows, maybe my future daughter might want to wear it!?
The dress had mermaid features and it showed off the curves that I definitely have. I was nervous because even with all the weight loss, I was not a stick by any means- and the silk taffeta was a very unforgiving fabric- but it was perfect. I loved it for the barn!
|go ahead. tell them how awesome their work is!|
|I loved the bustle and how it looked after!|
|the buttons were real until my hips :)|
Of course you're probably wondering what was under the dress... as in shoes... haha. Well, for the ceremony, I wore the most perfect blush Badgley Mischka heels- which is why I towered over the girls in all the pre-ceremony pictures!
|they were PERFECT and matched the girl's dresses/wedding!|
You didn't think I would wear the heels all night did you? Nope. I bought the girls blush grosgrain TOMS to wear for the reception and I slipped on (with the help of my sister in law and photographer) into my own lace TOMS.
