Show Us Your Life - Wedding Dresses

Yesterday on Kelly's Korner was Show Us Your Wedding Dress. Okay, so I am a day late, but ya know what they say...better late than never. I was really looking forward to this post too, but my mom came in to town and I was busy cleaning and just forgot to do it. So, anyways, on to WEDDING DRESSES!!!!

I LOVED my wedding dress. My best friend Summer, and maid of honor, had been wedding dress shopping with another of our friends and she saw this dress and she said she knew it was for me. Well, she kind of told me what it looked like, but when you enter a store and EVERYTHING is white and lacy and on and on, it is hard to find something you have a vague description of. Well, anyways, I find a dress I love and try it on, perfect. So, I try on about 35 more to humor my mother, but I still love the first one. So, I called my to maid of honors to tell them to come see what they think. Summer walked in and said "Oh My Gosh!!! That is the dress I picked out for you!". So, I got the dress and still love it.

I am not a frilly, sparkly, lots of froo-froo girl (I know, shocking right?). So the top of the dress has a sweetheart neckline with rouching and a long full skirt with a chapel length train and on the skirt was to swarovski crystal broaches. Very classic, and simply it. Not to mention, it gave me great cleavage (Trey loved it!). The dress had its own petticoat, and I wore another one beneath that, so needless to say, it was VERY HEAVY!! Up at the front of the church with all of those lights on us and my very heavy dress I just kept telling myself not to seat of I would ruin my makeup! =)

Sorry this is not a very clear picture, I scanned it in. These are from my bridal portraits. You will notice my bouquet is different in my wedding pictures, I changed my mind...more on that next week. I also decided I didn't like my hair blonde and dyed it brown a month before the wedding. I mean, isn't that what bridal portraits are for, a trial run to make sure you like everything before the big day?
