The dress is here!

Long time no see! I'm sorry for the slight, uh, delay in posts. I'm quite busy now that my Senior year of college started. Anywho, to the main topic - my dress and our wedding plans! It felt like it took forever for my wedding dress to come in after it was ordered, but it is here. I love the dress, and it was everything I was looking for. It's gorgeous and has great hand-sewn details. Once I tried it back on, I didn't want to take it off. I don't want to give specifics about the dress, because Jay will most likely read this blog post... But, it is perfect!

Slowly but surely, we are checking things off our to-do list. We also got a DJ for the wedding, and, we are currently working with a local education facility's graphic design program to create the invitations and RSVP cards. Also, we (my mom) are pricing out cakes.

Now that I have the perfect man and perfect dress, I'm ready to get married!

PS: Sorry this post is kind of short. I need to get back to my homework :)

Bridesmaid Dresses

About one month ago I went with my three bridesmaids to pick out their dresses, and I thought I would share this process with you. So, about six months ago I went with my maid of honor to David's Bridal and she tried on some dresses to get an idea of what was out there. It went really well, and we found one dress we really liked. When we went with all the girls we realized that this was not the dress. It was very difficult to find something to fit the three girl since they all had different body types. This really didn't bother me, because I had decided a while ago that I care more about them feeling conformable and confident in their dresses than anything else (my only stipulation was the dresses had to be in the peacock color). So, we worked with the consultant - who must have been new since she was really bad - to find the girls a dress that all of them would be comfortable wearing during a potentially hot June day. They ended up picking this dress, and it looks great on all of them.

The best part of the night was all the girls being happy with what they are wearing for my wedding - not to mention they all said they would consider wearing the dress again. I've got to say, "I love my girls!"
