Yes to the Dress!!!

I have officially ordered my dress! I have to admit its a little unnerving to order something you aren't going to see until three months later, but I'm still super excited.

I'd been harassed by my loving, amazingly organized cousin (also known and Maid-of-Honor-zilla) to order the dress ASAP, but I had this sneaking suspicion that I might find something I liked better. So I went alone (gasp!) to the store to try it on again. I wanted to make sure I wasn't making the decision off of someone else's "ooohs or ahhhs". And I feel in love. Again.

The only thing I could have wanted in a dress was a longer train. Luckily an awesome saleslady suggested that I get a cathedral style veil to create the illusion of a long train. I'd always thought those were only for really super fancy weddings, but now I've got all kinds of ideas swirling in my head.

Of course, one choice just leads to another.

I could go with a cathedral veil for the ceremony....





Side Note: I hope you're supposed to just walk down the aisle with these already behind you. I can just see Mr. Man and I tangled up in it and everyone laughing!

.... and a DIY flower for the reception.




Or I could go vintage-y with a netted veil.




The DIY to-do list is in motion, so maybe I'll attempt to create something for my hair.

Any suggestions?

And what in the world are you supposed to do with that much tulle if you wear a cathedral veil?

Congrats on finding your dress! Your veil can be removed after the ceremony so you are free to dance the night away!

Yay! That's one more thing added to your "accomplishments" list.

(To Do lists are so old fashioned :)
