Kayla, are you reading this? You continue to magically post Facebook “sneak peeks” JUST as I run out of material for these posts. My (vapid, wedding-hungry) readers & I thank you
Lots of you have complimented my dress. First, thank you. Second, it’s from David’s Bridal, and was super affordable. For fussy, non-nonsense, “why-spend-money-on-something-you’re-never-going-to-wear-again” me, that was KEY.
And dear lord what I would have done to myself if I’d woken up the day after and seen the wreckage the broken bustle, spilled beer, and 3am statue climbing (that story’s to come, promise) to an EXPENSIVE dress? I would have been sick.
(if any other brides are wearing/interested in this dress, I wore it without the petticoat. much “flowier” and a less structured trumpet. just fyi)
The shoes are Steve Madden, from DSW. I lasted in the 4.5” heel through first look photos, the ceremony, and about half the reception before I felt like chopping my feet off at the ankles. Good thing I brought a back up! (… 3” heels)
Also, the custom wire hanger with our wedding date is from Etsy seller BettyAnneProductions.
* post production note : David’s Bridal linked to this GWSotD post over at their blog – I guess this means I’m famous. David’s, I’m free for a photoshoot anytime and open to discussing the sale of our wedding photos, a la Kim Kardashian. Be in touch.
