Wedding Dress

Kelly, over at Kelly's Korner is hosting "Show Us Your Life" - Wedding Dress edition. Stop by her site for more wedding dress photos from other bloggers!


I was and am still completely in love with my dress. My mom and I found it the very first day we went looking at dresses. I passed right by it at first because the sample at the store was silver and white and had a halter top and I knew I wanted an ivory dress with a sweetheart neckline. After trying on a few dresses, the consultant helping me brought over "my" dress and told me that I could change the color from silver and white to soft ivory and I could change the neckline. As soon as I realized I could make the changes I fell in love with the dress! My best friend, Erin, was coming out to Michigan the next day to help us look for dresses, so we didn't buy it that day. The next day Erin, my mom, and I continued the search for the perfect dress. But all day long I knew that we had to go back to the first store for "my" dress! So at the end of the day we went back to try it on again, and everyone agreed it was beautiful. I bought it that day! It was such a big decision but I knew I was doing the right thing. Buying the dress made everything seem so real...I was actually going to get married!

My mom zipping me up!

When my dress arrived in the store months later I was so nervous to see it. But it turned out just how I had envisioned! Every time I went back for a dress fitting other future brides in the store would just go crazy over my dress!

The back had beautiful little details. Oh, and my mom made my veil!

This is one of my favorite pictures. That big bump in the back is Erin doing the bustle for me. That is a true friend! Thanks for stopping by!
