THE Wedding Dress (With Photos)

Sunday, September 07, 2014

I have finally gotten a free moment to get back on to Sparkpeople! It's been a few days and I really have missed logging on each day. Work has taken up a big chunk of time but I'm just happy to be working! I've been busy working, wedding planning, exercising, and taking care of my uncle. On my day off on Wednesday I saw 3 florists and that took a lot out of me! I had today off and I have tomorrow as well. I'm trying to set up an appointment tomorrow to visit with a potential DJ :) On Thursday night we'll hopefully have a tasting with the caterer! Once we lock in the DJ and caterer I'll be moving on to cake tastings and picking out the bakery that we'll be using. On the 26th my matron of honor is flying in from Seattle so she can be apart of the bridesmaids dress shopping! I cannot wait to have almost everyone there together trying dresses on :)

Without further ado! Here is THE dress that I bought along with the slip, bra, head band, lace bolero and veil. I can't wait for it to come in! I'm also including photos of the other dresses that I tried on. The one I chose was literally the 2nd one I put on and I just knew that was the ONE. They put my in a ball gown first to make sure it was a style I did not want and I was right, it was horrible on me. I wanted something more form fitting to show off the curves I've got going on now and to show off my hard work the past 7 years.



And here are the ones I didn't choose...

    Very pretty. YOU are the only person that needs to be happy. Not the sales lady!

    Oh my, I couldn't agree more, the curvaceous dress is the winner!
You, my dear, are absolutely stunning in your gown. The Groom is going to be in tears the moment he sees you. emoticon And your 7 years has made you most deserving of the style!! emoticon

    ooooooooooh sooo perfect!!! The one you picked is hands down THE best one of all of them! I wish I could have worn a form fitting dress for my wedding, ended up with an a-line style but still felt beautiful.
You will have an AMAZING wedding!! emoticon emoticon

    Wow, they all look great (though I agree - the ballgown was maybe a bit much!)

Love your veil too - and the little lace jacket is really cute; gives the familiar mermaid style a slightly different look.

I Found The Dress!

Wednesday, September 03, 2014

I had a wonderful time in Chico over the weekend. On Saturday I went wedding dress shopping at David's Bridal and ended up picking my dress!!!! It was totally unexpected and unplanned because I wasn't planning on finding the dress so quickly. The dress I chose was literally the 2nd dress I tried on and it was absolutely beautiful and perfect for my style. I tried on other dresses after it just to be sure but nothing compared to it. I went with a more form fitting figure flattering dress style because I want to be able to show off all of my hard work and determination... and who would have thought that I have an hour glass figure going on?! I had no clue until I put this dress on. The sales woman ended up putting a veil and head band on me and I loved them so much with the dress that I got those as well. I also go the bra and slip, a cloth dress bag, and a wedding dress preservation kit to have my dress preserved after the wedding. I lucked out by having the dress be $300 off making it an amazing deal. I got everything mentioned for $1591 which I think is an amazing price.

I spent Sunday getting things for some of the centerpieces that I will be doing myself. I got the blue pint sized mason jars with different pebbles/rocks from a craft store and brown twine from my job that I will hot glue around the top of the jars and will be placing an LED tea light candle inside the jar. I'm so excited to do a craft night with one of my bridesmaid's to get them done.

Everything is starting to come together :)

Bitter Sweet

Friday, August 29, 2014

Super excited yet nervous... I know tomorrow is going to be so bitter sweet for me because my mom won't be there to witness any of the wedding planning or the wedding. I really wish she could be there but I find some comfort in knowing her spirit will be present in some way.

I get to try on dresses Saturday!!!!!!!! I CANNOT wait, I'm so excited. Also we're about to head off to a florist appointment and then the gym and then to go get gas so we can go to Chico tomorrow.
