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 ;)

  5. I just found a clip from SYTTD and went searching to see what you finally chose. What a beautiful dress. You were very smart to have one custom made. It's just absolutely perfect in every detail. And more importantly, it highlights your own beauty and doesn't overpower you. It's seamless as part of your whole look on such an important day. My best to you and all your loved ones.
