I know... I never do WIW, but I couldn't resist the wedding edition!
My dress... hmmmm, well, I didn't "know it" when I put it on. I found myself comparing every dress to this one dress that I liked the best, but wasn't sure about the flowers on it. My mom actually convinced me that this was MY dress. It was Ines DiSanto and cost OH-TOO-MUCH money and we had to search for it again... I ended up finding it 86 miles away in La Jolla, CA. So we had to go down there several times for measurements, etc. (don't find a dress at a trunk show! LOL)
My shoes had to be red, period. I tried getting plain wedding shoes and dying them, bad idea! I had red feet just trying them on... and I really didn't want ruin my dress with red dye. I was on the hunt for the perfect shoe... when I stumbled across these puppies at ALDO... never would have looked there for wedding shoes! Oh and I wore them all night without blisters or anything! Such comfy shoes!
I have a thing for shoes... here are my bridesmaids. I think that they hated me because these shoes weren't so comfy. I found these in a bridal magazine and my sister tracked them down and had to have Charles David order them in for me. P.S. The Charles David staff at South Coast Plaza, amazing!
My hair piece is Erin Cole. Only by accident did I get these beautiful pins. It just so happened that I wasn't at work when one of our vendors came by to drop off a part. He asked where I was and my sister told him about the wedding, etc. etc. He came back with a gift... Erin Cole pins! Ok, so I had been eyeballing Erin Cole's pins for months, but I waited too long to order them in time so I couldn't get them. BUT guess what? Erin just happened to be my vendors wife! I will never forget this gift! My earrings are my moms... my something borrowed. My necklace and bracelet are Tiffany, gifts from my hubby.
