Oh my gosh, I LOOOOVED my dress!

But first… here’s a few dresses I tried on that did not make the cut:

PS. Dress shopping with your BFF who is getting married 2 weeks before you is incredibly fun!
(and above right is Sarah who got married a few months before me!)


Ok, so you see how all the above pictures, NONE of those dresses really suits me, right?

Well, sometimes you just know!

I ended up finding my dress in Las Vegas with Ashley and my grandmother. It totally wasn’t a dress I would have picked to try on, but it was perfect. It was a Maggie Sottero Vienna. And it was love.

I loved the lace and the satin together.

Originally, it had a really heavy train of Satin and Lace:

But I had my seamstress (whom I highly recommend, by the way) chop off the satin!! It was scary, but I was so glad I did. It made it so much lighter.

My veil was my mom’s from 1982. Hers was attached to a hat.

I had a family friend disassemble it, doubled it over and attached it to a comb. Viola!
For my shoes, I knew I didn’t want heels, so I bought the lowest heels I could find that still looked decent. They’re actually just white dyables. Then I found a pair of great earrings at Forever 21 for $3, so I cut off the posts and hot glued them on. I LOVED them!

Ok, enough about me… what did Irving wear?

A sleek Brooks Brother’s suit! And he was quite handsome in it, if I don’t say so myself!

He also wore cufflinks from Mont Blanc:

The bridesmaids wore Bill Levkoff dresses in Chocolate:

EJ (AKA Groomsmaid!) wore the same dress in black. This was great because she matched the my maids and Irving’s groomsmen!
