I think, no, I KNOW if my mom had been there it would have been different. I know she would have kept pushing me to look at more dresses rather than be pressured by the lady at the store (who didn't want me to try on more than 3-4...MAX) and she would have made the guy who did my hair fix it the exact way I wanted it. I was so afraid of being "Bridezilla" I'm afraid I let people walk all over me in some areas.
ANYWAY! Here are some pictures of my dress:
My husband, me, my dad and all my brothers & sisters
At least my bouquet was perfect!
Exactly the way I wanted it to look, actually better than I expected!
We got married in 2008, so not too long ago. And did I keep it? Yes, even though I looking back I may have done things differently it's still my wedding dress and I don't think I could ever sell it. I still haven't gotten it cleaned or preserved though ;) I should probably do that...
I love the idea of showing pictures of wedding dresses and stories about them. I found this Wedding Dress Blog Tour through a few blogs I follow and it was started by Sasher's Life. Check it out and join in!
