So, planning a wedding in 2 months is not as crazy as I thought it would be... but, everyone kept asking me when I was getting my dress. I had a lot of good excuses on why I waited so long... I wanted to find a venue first (this was our biggest challenge of the 2 month wedding, in fact, we agreed that if we couldn't find a perfect venue we would be moving the wedding to next Spring.). However, after that was crossed off, I had the kids for 3 weekends in a row, and we had a lot of things going on every weekend. So, FINALLY, 2 weeks ago I did find a dress! I had a lot of friends worrying I would run out of time, but... nope, I found it! And, here is a photo of me seeing it on for the first time. Is it crazy to fall in love with the FIRST dress you try on? I did! If it makes you feel better, I did try on one other dress, but it just did not compare. I love the pick up in the skirt, so this is why I decided to go with this dress.
Here is the back. Originally, I was going to go with a cocktail dress with a short skirt. But, then I realized I wanted to do photos at the park... It would be October and I get cold easily... then, I started looking a wedding gowns online... Oh, darn. I talked myself out of that cocktail dress and into a beautiful wedding dress! How do these things happen? I am sure Brian will be happy with my decision. Brian, you better not be reading this! The dress does have a short train, which I will leave down for the ceremony. But, for the park photos and the reception, it'll be bustled up.
Here I am with a fingertip length veil on... I am still trying to figure out how I will have my hair done. I didn't have time for a trial appointment, SO I am hoping they can put it up in a cute way... I am going to try to find some photos of up-do's I like. I went back and forth on the veil, but decided to go with it. Now, I just need to figure out my jewelry.
My shoes, they are 2" bridal wedges.
Oh dear. I wanted to die. They made me ring a bell while everyone clapped, because I had found 'my' dress. I wish I could have skipped this part.
How the dress will look bustled
One last photo for your pleasure :)
Hoping to have pics of Autumn in her flower girl dress up soon. The skirt on her dress matches mine, in that it is a 'pick up' skirt.
