I found my wedding dress!!! (and mroe progress)

August 14th, 2006 at 04:49 pm

We wnt shopping today, to David's Bridal. I didn't want a traditional wedding gown, I just don't feel that is appropriate, so I went straight to the bridesmaids dresses, etc. I had looked around penneys and a few other places last week and found NOTHING that wasn't "summer flirty", which was just a bit too casual to wear to get married in lol. So anyway...I found my dress!!! It's Beautiful!! Just the right amount of class, but still informal enough to be able to wear again.

Now granted, I'm not nearly as thin as the girl in the picture, but I slipped it on, 2 sizes smaller than I expected to get (WOOHOOO), and it fits like a glove. Absolutely perfect!!!

Until you look down....I'm only 4'11, so I have to get it hemmed, and they want $30 to do the alteration there, so I am going to look around and see what I can find.

Also, based on a few things I read elsewhere, I decided what to do about the wedding cake. I am going to get the smallest "wedding cake" I can find, for my DBF and I, and our parents, etc. Then I will bake a sheet cake (with cake mix and frosting I got for free after coupons of course!), so that should cut the cost down on those considerably!

Now if I could just get the darn invites done....
