My Wedding Dress

Here is my wedding dress I wore July 12, 2008 when I married the man of my dreams. I looked at tons of dresses online and in magazines before I ever steeped foot in a bridal shop. I decided to go to two local shops one Saturday just to test the waters. I found a dress at each shop that stood out, but just weren't right. I decided to wait until I was back at school in Lexington and go looking there. The day that UK played Louisville in football I went shopping. I took my mom, and my two best friends/bridesmaids Holly and Whitney. (My two sisters and other bridesmaids were at home in wky). We went to one shop and I grabbed some dresses. There were two that were simple and classic like I was wanting. I tried on the first. It was strapless and looked horrible on my chest. It was close to $1000. I tried on the next one and it was perfect! It had rouching around the waist and fell away from the hips with a box pleat. The deep V-neck with spaghetti straps had enough detail to keep interest. The taffeta fabric was gorgeous! I stepped outside and EVERYONE loved it. It was the one! But there was no price tag.... I got really, really nervous. I just knew it would be more expensive than the first dress because it was so much prettier! So the sales assistant took the numbers and went to look up the price. She came back.... it was a ballgown from Moonlight Bridal's Destination line. It was only $400! I was so pumped. That was definitely within budget. I loved this dress. I needed a little bit of alterations and hemming. The first time they hemmed it I hated it! It was way too short. I felt like could see my ankles. So I took it back and they let it out. I guess I like my dress the way people like their curtains... with a little puddle :)


I had to have a blusher! I thought it was one thing I would be old-fashiony about. I think it is so pretty and I had Dad practice so I didn't get a big hump when he lifted it and gave me away!Here's the puddle!
