My Dress!!!

 
Here is my lovely dress!  I got it at the Wedding Shoppe in St. Paul, MN.
 
** Update:  My dress is now in DC with me and still looks as beautiful before!  I will be getting my alterations done from the famous Angie here in DC! 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Veil

A simple chapel length sheer veil with a lace border at the bottom.  My grandma will be helping me make this!

So far I have purchased this beautiful comb to attach the veil to.  It was originally pretty pricey but I got it for a great deal at a bridal shop that was going out of business here in DC.

Bustle

My dress has a super long train and will definitely have to be bustled.  I am thinking that bustles similar to the ones about would look really great!

Shoes


**Caparros - Victor**

Simple, peep toe, medium height heel, and a cute bow - Perfect!  Plus the ivory color matches my dress (although the pictures are of the shoes in silver)!

Bridal Jewelry

  Here is my lovely bracelet!  I think it will match the look of my dress perfectly.  It is coming all the way from Thailand.  

 Here are my earrings from Macy's.

Garter

 

I will be making my own garter similar to one of the two designs above.

Hair

  

Here are my hair ideas.  I am going to have a lower hair-do that is all pulled back with soft pinned curls or a bun.   I most likely will add a little broach or crystal clip in my hair.  Something very simple as pictured above.

Make-up

Here is my make-up idea!

Bridesmaids Dresses

**Priscilla of Boston, Vineyard Collection Style VY1408**

Here are two photos - the one on the left from the website and the one on the right my bridesmaid found online!  Jessica Biel wore the same dress when she was in Beverly Mitchell's wedding! 

We will be ordering them in Marine Blue which is a darker blue, similar to Navy.  The fabric of this dress is described as crinkle chiffon.  I love the neckline and little fabric tucks the bust has - exactly what my dress looks like!  Under the bust, the fabric is gathered a bit (you can see this clearer on the website).  It is flowy, flattering and all around BEAUTIFUL!!!  Honestly, it is gorgeous in real life and these photos don't do it justice!

Flower Girls 

**Pink Princess - Cross Pattern Organza with Rose Buds**

Here are my four flower girls in their dresses.  They are so cute!

They each also have these cute "I am a flower girl" shirts!

Groom and Groomsmen

**Mens Warehouse Style Calvin Klein** 

Simple black suit for the guys with a ivory shirt and a solid navy tie.  We are letting all of the guys buy their own black, 2 button suit.

 

**Nicole Miller** 

I got all of the guys Nicole Miler ties from Burlington Coat Factory for $10 each! 


 

I'm hoping to get all of the guys matching socks too!
