meet my dress

my dress - sketched by Megan Hamilton (she's amazing...look what she did with my mom's dress here!)


My dress.  There is a lot of back-story there.  20ish days before the wedding I wasn't wearing this dress...  I was going to wear a simple silk JCrew dress... and some interesting things happened.  (I will obviously share...but this is not the post for that.)  

I just wanted to take a moment to love on my fancy shmancy bridal gown

I loved wearing this freaking dress.  Loved it.  I have never felt so beautiful.  In my entire life.  It had sparkly glittery stuff all over it...and beads....and pearls... and pretty LACE.  It had a sweetheart neckline.  A mermaid-ish cut....and a freaking train.  Every single bridal gown element that made me roll my eyes while planning my wedding. Who knew?  

I loved everything about wearing this dress...and when the end of the night came, and the gown had to come off, I stood in front of the mirror in our hotel for a few solid minutes.  I wanted to remember the weight of the fabric, the sparkle of the beads, the delicate swirls of the lace.  I admired it on my curvy body...and maybe twirled a few times.

I felt like the belle of the ball all day....and I was.

Thank you, dear dress, for being such a beautiful addition to my wedding experience.

    Yes, the sketch is beautiful. But I see what you're up to - you are slowly torturing us, which I'm sure isn't in the Hippocratic Oath, Doctor. LOL! :D
