My Wedding Dress

UPDATE:
I told my husband over breakfast that today at Kelly's we were showing wedding dresses. He said, "Crap! You can't fit in yours!" I laughed so hard.

Today over at Kelly's Korner, everyone is showing their wedding dresses. I thought I'd join in the fun!

My wedding dress fit me like a glove. I went shopping for it several times with friends, and was about to buy a plain, strapless, unoriginal gown because i thought my dream of lace was too expensive.
But I went to one VERY VERY junky wedding shop with my mom. I almost didn't go in because it was so sketchy. We looked through the sales rack and found this jewel for $300 because it had been discontinued. Sad thing was, it was a 6 and I was a 10 because of my large chest. But I tried it on anyway and it fit perfectly because of the open back. I loved that I found my wedding dress with my mom and the fact that it was the one jewel in a room full of horrific 80s dresses:-)

I loved my dress, but most of all I loved getting married to Noah!

  1. those "80s" dresses really may have been 90s dresses! LOL! I know I look back at mine and say, "wow, that looks so 80s" but was really married in the late 90s! :) BEAUTIFUL dress! GREAT find!
