Only 1 more week until our 1 year anniversary. Want to know the smartest thing I did for my wedding? Not buying a 'wedding dress'.
Look around my blog. I'm not totally unwilling to spend money on nice things, but I couldn't justify spending upwards of 1,000 dollars on a dress I'd get to wear once in my life. I'm not saying it is bad if you do, but I couldn't imagine that. Plus, when I tried on wedding dresses, I'm fairly certain the woman didn't appreciate me mocking many of the dresses she pulled (one had a bubble hem and I wobbled back and forth singing 'weebles wobble but they don't fall down!). Once we were done there, I pranced over to the bridesmaids section, found this beauty, and voila! Wedding dress!
The dress cost right around 200 dollars and is from Wtoo and is a simple bridesmaids dress. Most bridesmaids dresses come in white, ivory, and similar colors. My dress is a color called 'candlelight'.
I input a lot of my own style into the wedding. The heels are from BDG via Urban Outfitters and you've seen them on many bloggers, from Marisa of Shades of Monet to Jessica of the Midwest Muse. I've even worn these shoes on the blog a few times. My veil is from Tessa Kim on Etsy. And I did all of my makeup myself and my close friend Katie did my hair and all of the other girls.
I think my signature Ray Ban clubmaster sunnies were a good choice too!
