I’ve heard I’d look good with a nose piercing but I’ll just keep adding holes to my ears 😝 hopefully I’ll find time to blog about this (and my previous) piercing experience soon!

I’ve heard I’d look good...

Dallas, you were fun, but I’m definitely glad to be back in my own house.

Fun fact: when we lived in Chattanooga, I always wanted a dog to walk with on the bridge.

The Dress – Wedding Wednesday

It’s another wedding Wednesday!! Today we’ll be looking at my dress.

 

The Dress

 

If the option is to choose trendy or timeless, I will always pick timeless. My wedding dress was no exception. I wanted to be able to look back on my wedding pictures with my future daughter and not have to explain what was “in fashion” in 2013. People always tell me I can rock anything (clearly they have’t seen me in orange or brown… bleh), but I’m also not a fan of overwhelming textures (I’m a really petite 5’2″ XXS), so a poofy ballroom dress was out. I didn’t want to look like a wedding cake (that IS why there is a wedding cake after all) so no ruffles or flowers.  No overly sparkly rhinestones either, this isn’t a pageant or prom. I was iffy on lace dresses because I didn’t want to look too matronly (kiss of death in my book) or like a tablecloth. On top of all that it had to have some sort of sleeve  (to appease the stringent dress code that was religiously enforced), I wasn’t going to sew on sleeves to the dress after we bought it (no matter what it looks a little conflicting that way, and my perfectionist self would always see it). I wanted to try the dress on and only have minor alterations….

I tried this dress and I KNEW it was the one. The dress comes from Allure Bridals Couture collection. It’s all over lace with amazing beading all over the dress and a chapel length train. It has a trumpet silhouette which complimented my tiny figure, and cap sleeves.  I love the extra beading and the low back, but the icing on the (wedding) is the scalloped lace on the edge of the dress. I only had to get it hemmed and the shoulders shortened a little. Minus not having a tiara (which I find incredibly tacky for a wedding anyways) I looked like a princess, but of course I am 24/7. 🙂

Be fearless,
