Outfit Post: My Wedding Dress

Well I am back from vacation and I'm officially a wife! Thank you for all of your messages and congratulations on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. My husband (!) and I were overwhelmed with your kind words and well-wishes, thank you very much! It was a wonderful day and I can't wait to share more details on this blog within the next few weeks. I can't post a whole lot of photos of our wedding just yet because we are having a party/reception in a couple of weeks here in Edmonton with about 110 of our closest friends and family and we'll be presenting a slideshow of our wedding in Santa Barbara at that time so I don't want to spoil the surprise in case they read my blog! But, I can post a few of my dress!

When I went wedding gown shopping I knew what I wanted: A lace dress with 3/4 length or full length sleeves, nothing strapless. Well as you can see I changed my mind once I tried on this Pronovias La Sposa Mullet gown (I still laugh that it's called "The Mullet!") from The Bridal and Tuxedo House ; ) As soon as I tried it on I knew it was "The One." I wanted something classic, timeless and with clean lines. I chose not to wear a sparkly belt or a necklace, I didn't think I needed either but I did want sparkly tear-drop earrings to finish off the look. I actually bought some online but wasn't happy with them when they arrived, the faux diamonds weren't as sparkly as they were advertised in the photo, but I couldn't return them unfortunately so I thought I was stuck with them. But what's funny is that my friend Jayna texted me a photo of a pair of earrings she didn't wear on her wedding day a few weeks before our big day, asking if I wanted to borrow them, if I didn't have earrings yet. Perfect timing! It was fate! And they were the same shape and style as the pair I had bought but much prettier! So the earrings were my "something borrowed" on my wedding day. They are from Haute Bride. (Thanks again Jayna!)

I also didn't think I'd want to wear a veil but when the sales associate at the store suggested I try one on for sh*ts and giggles I obliged and again, I changed my mind ; ). In the end, I was happy with my decision.

I hope you're all having a great week!

Loves it! I didn't even notice the model's expression, I was too busy looking at the stunning wedding dress. Now I have to go look at it again.

That is a gorgeous dress. My daughter is going shopping for hers this weekend. I might be able to go with her. I hope I can. I just love this part of life. I remember mine was a bit stressful because of financial constraints so I really just did not want that for her. Thankfully we're able to help out.
