Show Us Your Life-Wedding Dress

Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is hosting a series called Show Us Your Life. Today is wedding dress day! How fun!

I actually have a funny wedding dress story. I ended up with two wedding gowns. I purchased my first wedding gown and freaked out about it. It just ended up not being what I wanted, so my ever loving and patient Mother suggested that I look for another dress. The first dress I tried on after my freak out moment ended up being my wedding dress.

Here's the first dress I bought. This dress was so beautiful on the hanger, but it just never looked quite right on me. See what I mean. It was not a very figure flattering dress. By the way, this is a horrible picture of me. Here is my real wedding dress! It is a golden beige color with slight ruching at the waist that gathers at one side. It also has a corset back. I included several pictures, so you could get a feel of what the dress looks like. The above picture is a posed picture of Michael and I right after the ceremony.

I adore the above picture. It is of Michael and I walking back down the aisle after being pronounced husband and wife. We are grinning like goons.


The above picture is with my bridesmaids. I think this picture gives you a better feel of what the dress looks like.

I promise this is the final picture. The above picture is just of the little detail on my dress. It is where the ruching gathers together at one side. It is accented with a small rhinestone brooch.

I hope you enjoyed looking at pictures of my wedding dress! I can't wait to see pictures of your wedding dress or pictures of wedding dresses that you like if you aren't married yet.
