Show Us Your LIFE!- Wedding Dress Friday!!!!

Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is hosting Show Us Your Life by posting _______________. Well today just happens to be Wedding Gown Friday!!!!!

My dress was my dream dress, hands down. When choosing my gown, I wanted something that was a reflection of my taste, combined with what I new Rob would love. Rob is simple, and traditional. So the style of my dress was A-Line traditional, and the material was a Satin Taffeta. So it wasn't all lace or beads...it was just a little more traditional. It was a simple frame dress- just what Rob loves. But at the same time, it had some modern touches. A sash that was a gorgeous Champagne color that matched exactly with some of the beading on the gown. The bodice of my gown was very detailed. Beads and small small pearls. Scalloped bottom with the same details...gorgeous train- just the right length for an outdoor wedding. Corset back. When choosing a veil, I had 2 veils. I had a fingertip length veil, as well as a blusher. I knew I wanted to wear my veils ontop of my head during the ceremony, and wanted to put one of them under my updo for the reception. We chose the shorter style of veils, as the back of my dress where the train started had some detailing and we didn't want to cover it.

No necklace..we didn't want to take away from the sweetheart neckline and detail on the bodice.

I did cry when I tried this gown on. It came down to this gown and another. I tried them both on again, and tears brimmed my eyes when I slipped this one on again.

I am still trying to find a way to wear this baby again...ahem...not in a wedding of course....but I just LOVE her so :)

And let me say this....my Handsome Groom made me look good!!!!
