Inside Our Wedding Attire

I feel like I blinked my eyes and two years has flown by. At the risk of sounding cliché, I must say time really does fly when you're having fun. In honor of our anniversary today and since this is indeed part fashion blog, I'm going to take you on the inside of our wedding attire.

Dress shopping is always such a fun part of the journey to the alter. I decided that my first trip to Sorrells (in Washington Pa) was going to be when I picked my dress. Surrounded by the closest women in my life, I picked the very first dress I had tried on.  Since I'm not an off the rack kind of girl the fun didn't stop there. Having a fabulous Mom as a seamstress has always worked in my favor and continues to. She added feathers, rhinestones, and her own amazing personal touch on everything.

This one was a close second but I felt it didn't show off my shape enough. That being said, I did love it and I loved the embellishment on the hip. We used that concept in my end result.

This beauty here wasn't even in the top 5. Look at me I couldn't even keep a straight face! This was the "Moms Pick" dress. As much as I didn't like this dress it played a huge part in my design. See the sheer one shoulder? We got the idea for my dress from this.

The winner! I loved how I felt in this immediately. It was the exact silhouette that I wanted.

On the night that MK and I got engaged, my Sister-In Law wasn't able to make it to the engagement but at our engagement party she had a video all ready to go saying that she had set up an appointment at the one and only Kleinfeld's. It was such an amazing experience!! Not to mention getting to be in New York in December. Which is my favorite time to be there.

The photo on the right was another adventure with her at BHLDN in Houstan, TX. She has quite the eye and snapped this photo while we were browsing all things wedding. Such a beautiful store, when planning your garb for walking down the isle the possibility's are endless.

Back to the dress and accessories. Not only did I decide on my dress that night, I also decided on my jewelry and head piece. The headpiece was one of my favorite parts of my whole look. This was also the moment I thought, maybe I should wear my hair up. I'm typically a hair down person but with the earrings and one shoulder, it needed to be up. I actually did my own hair on the big day too.

 

 

"Feather Girls"

 

 

The "Feather Girls" dresses were my accent color, Royal Blue with Kelly Green accents. Opposite of the Bridesmaids dresses. My Mom custom made these dresses for my beautiful Nieces. Ella just about stole the show when she walked down the isle elagantly tossing feathers.

 

 

 

The ladies also had a shoulder and hip embellishment and feathers in their bouquets.

Can't forget about the guys! They  wore tan Michael Kors suits with a subtle white pin stripe. The vest has a paisley print. Handsome group of guys right there!
