Unfortunately last week I missed Wedding Wednesday, but happy to be sharing a little more of the plans today with two major tasks accomplished. Last weekend my Maid of Honour and I headed back to the dress shop so I could show her "the dress", and luckily she loved it just as much as I do! Having her there to see the dress was one of those crazy wedding moments... sort of like, "Wow. I can't believe i'm here, trying on wedding dresses, with my best friend." I'm happy it went so well.
We also got the chance to try out some bridesmaids dresses and I think we've found the perfect one! It's a strapless dress by Bill Levkoff, chiffon instead of the usual satin, with a sweetheart neckline and a hem that falls just below the knee. It's flowing and elegant, and amazingly... comes in the EXACT colour I was imagining in my head. That never happens. It's called Victorian Lilac, and blends in perfectly. It looks a little different online (it's not as grey in real life), but you can take a peek here. We haven't decided quite yet, but it's a high contender.
This past Saturday was a big one though, as I officially said yes to the dress! I've tried on the same dress 3 times now, and never want to take it off. It's elegant and sophisticated in a gorgeous shade of ivory and I can't wait for Rick to see me in it! It was nerve wracking choosing a dress so early (I won't see it for 8 months now!), but at the same time it was also a really easy choice. I wish I could show you all, but I just can't take the chance. However, i'll be sure to show you in a year or so!
Also, remember those engagement photos I promised? I haven't forgotten. I'll have them soon, and can't wait to share...
