For those of you that are Say Yes to the Dress Fans...
I have received many messages about my SYTTD episode. I thought I would put up some pictures for those of you that are curious about my dress choice. After dress shopping for quite a while, I realized that I wanted a dress that was actually comfortable! I also realized that I didn't want all the bling and fluff and puff that most dresses had. I wanted something more simple elegant. One of the things I was most discouraged about with getting a modest wedding dress was that you would be able to see the alterations. I didn't want anyone to be able to tell that I had added sleeves to a sleeveless dress. That is when I went to a seamstress and had her create my dress from scratch. I think my dress really portrayed my personality and let me feel completely comfortable on my wedding day. I loved how light and flowy it was as well. I am so happy with my decision to design my own dress and have it made perfectly for me. Thanks to everyone for all the sweet facebook messages and support!
PS. I spent WELL UNDER 5000 dollars on my dress ;)
