THE DRESS(ES)December 07, 2016
Sure, the bride's dress is the most gawked at garment at one of these shindigs. Everyone judges how the bride looks, what style she chose, etc, etc. When you're a mom first, and a bride second, things can be a little backward. Of course I wanted to feel amazing in my dress, but let's not forget the reason I even bought a wedding dress and had a wedding in the first place.
I chose this particular color, champagne, due to the bow of Penny's dress. When I was dress shopping, Penny's dress is what I was thinking of the entire time. I was a backwards bride, and really not focusing every aspect of the wedding on me turned out to be a blessing.
When I look back at these photos I feel nothing but joy. As I state above, not focusing on all the "me" aspects of this wedding, really made it into the amazing day it was. It made it feel more celebratory than obligatory, and I'd have it no other way.
I have a few more wedding related posts to share, but as we get further and further away from the day we were married, I feel them getting more annoying and less exciting to read. I don't want to be that blog that shares wedding posts a year after her wedding. Thank you all for the insanely nice comments!
