Sharing the Wedding Dress

I'm a little late in the day, but I'm crashing the party over @ Kelly's Korner. Today, the party's all about sharing our wedding dresses.

Picking out my wedding dress was one of the hardest things I ever had to do.. because I had to do it without my mom. I tried on close to 50 dresses.. went to every bridal boutique.. and then at the last one, I found it. It really wasn't magical. I'm guessing if my mom or sisters had been there, we all probably would have cried. I do have to thank my MIL & SIL who went with me- it was great to have them there. It's just that every girl dreams of finding her wedding dress with her mom. But anyway.. I liked it because I felt very comfortable & feminine. I hesitated to buy it because it was pricier than I was planning on.. but after that much searching, I was ready to be done.

It's Maggie Sottero's Anastasia. Sweetheart neckline, lace-up back, embellished with lace & intricate beading. I'll let the dress do the talking:


I also wore a faux fur cropped jacket for some shots.. after all, it was november.

So pretty! I picked out my dress with my mom and was disappointed that my sister didn't come (she was out late the night before and slept through her alarm AND our phone calls). So maybe I know a little about what you mean? So nice that your MIL and SIL could join you, though, it's good to have a close relationship with the in-laws. :)
