My gown!


I just got back from my 2nd dress fitting... I can't wait to wear it in a few months! I went to a few different stores and got a good idea of what worked on my body and what didn't. Here are a few of the better ones from the "fail" pile:







I went to this cute little boutique here at the Beach and got the "Kleinfield's" experience (yes, I watch too much TLC, and yes, I'm watching it now). That's when the lady helping me pulled this:


This dress fit me like a glove, but it was over my price point and still didn't feel completely "right." Plus the mama drama I talked about earlier was coming to a head at that time, so I really just wasn't ready to get a dress.

I was poking around online and found this on the Eden Bridals site:
and I NEEDED to try it on.

I called/e-mailed about 20 stores from NC down to Charleston and nobody carried a sample of that dress! I finally e-mailed Eden (even though they say not to) and said that the only sample was in a shop in Camden, SC... 3 hours away and frankly, Hickville USA.

One bad morning at work makes for a good reason to take a road trip. So I drove...and drove...and drove to try it on. I tried on 3 or 4 dresses, but I knew that that dress was the one:


The sample was *huge* but a few clips helped. When my actual size came in, the waist fit perfectly but the top's a little big:


Yay for a good tan! I better start working on that again...
I feel like a bride now!

The Maids need dresses too!


I couldn't really find a dress I liked for my maids, and again got inspiration from a TV show. David Tutera likes taking his brides to Two Birds and getting them convertible dresses. I found a seamstress on Etsy and got one for myself, just in case... although I didn't need to worry cause they're AWESOME!



Sorry for the cheesiness and blurriness, I was attempting to send my maids a pic on my phone to show them. They're knee-length too, not that this bad bathroom pic shows that. The real beauty is that the top can be wrapped a million different ways. I like the flowers with them too!

Katesy's shop on Etsy is great. She sent me a little book of ~10 fabrics to choose from in my color of choice and was quick to respond and send them out.

You made an excellent decision on the dress - it's beautiful and figure flattering. I also like the blue BM dresses.

Thanks guys! Yah I may have picked it cause it makes my waist look tiny. I went to my 2nd fitting today and it looks even better without the huge top section. I go back on the 22nd to check the hem and discuss the bustle... woo hoo!!! Thanks for all the love!!!

Woo! Productive day...
I finalized my estimated event form and faxed it in to my Coordinator, Kathleen. So everything's set there, and I can't wait for it to be put into action! Also I just got done gluing about 237489230 little circles of ribbon (while drinking wine and watching Ghost Adventures with the DF) for my ribbon poms. (Thank you sw33t_angel for the inspiration to do the damn things!) I also cut my dog's hair and did some damage at Lowe's, but that has nothing to do with the wedding. And it's *almost* time to send away for my FL marriage license... yee haw!

I usually cruise around the boards butt-early in the morning because my puppy wakes me up at like 6:30 (whether I'm working or not), so no, the thought never occurred to me. Even though I personally sent you the link. Maybe I need to start up on that coffee habit again!

P.S. Did you know they bleep out inappropriate words (hence the "butt-early" above)? Disney's trying to change my potty-mouth ways!
