Wedding Recap: The Dress & Accessories

Hello Lovers!

And Happy Election Tuesday!

I went out this morning right when the polls opened and did my civic duty. Did YOU vote?

I don't care who you voted for. Not one to talk politics, but I DO think that EVERYONE should vote.

Anywho... you aren't here to listen to me talk about voting. You're here for the good aren't you. Without further adieu... let's get on with these Wedding Recaps. Seeing as how I will be married for two months on Thursday... whoops...

Here goes nothing...

One part of wedding planning that I was INCREDIBLY excited about was going dress shopping.

If you remember this post, I showed you all the dresses that I didn't pick.

And I have been DYING to show you the one I did pick. Presenting... my precious...

I look at these pictures and I think two things.

1) OMG that was such an amazing day!

2) OMG look at how much bigger I was. Ick. Thank god I started hitting up the gym. I would NOT have been happy walking down the aisle at 100 and HUGE pounds...

Anyway... I researched photos that I wanted of me and my dress, as well as the accessories. I told our photographer that I wanted ART from our wedding day, not just standard pictures.

And I have to say... she did an AMAZING job. I'll let the pictures do the talking.

The dress.

Getting ready. Earrings, bracelet, garter, shoes...check!

I am IN LOVE with the center picture. I know it is totally vain to be in love with a picture of yourself, but I am...

The accessories with my bouquet. Earring and Matching Bracelet: Charming Charlie's. Skull Bracelet: Etsy: Dos Puntos Accessories (Special thanks to Kristen who posted about this bracelet and I knew I HAD to have it for the wedding!)

Shoes are from Shoes to Dye For dyed to match David's Bridal Apple, which were the color of the bridesmaid dresses. The clutch is from Ebay I think. I don't remember where. But it has this effing awesome skull latch on the top. Obviously, this clutch and I were meant to be.

And that's all for today lovers. Next Tuesday will be the recap of the Wedding Party!
