Hope you had a great weekend! I was a busy bee. You see in between blogging and my design work I’ve been working on another little project.
This year Mom and Dad will be celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary. When they got married the first time and funds were tight they went to the court house and got married.
Mom has always dreamed of having a traditional wedding in a church, walking down the aisle, photographer, etc.
So two weeks ago we decided to plan a renewal party for them!
Mom wanted a classic and romantic event.
I immediately knew what sort of color theme I wanted for the big bash and sent
Bridezilla Mom this picture from Nonpareil:
Mom loved it. It gave her a bit of classic & romantic, but also a bit modern and fun. Win, win!
The big day is September 5th so this weekend was a mad dash to find the bride a dress.
I was a complete wedding dress snob when I got married in 06. I never even stepped foot into Davids Bridal and today I’m eating my words.They had amazing things! We have one really close to our house we decided to take a peek:
They had a million different options to pick from and most of them were stunning and I would have totally worn them for my big day. Plus most of them were way around $900.
Here is what she tried on:
Dress #1: Creamy ivory, bolero jacket as a cover up for the church, small lace detailing, a bit of beading, satin sash, overall we all agreed on this one.
Dress #2: Had the classic vibe Mom was going for with the clean lines and beading, but I just wasn’t loving it. It just looked a little too young.
Dress #3: This dress was a favorite for all of us. We loved the bit of ruffle on the jacket and the ruching all throughout the body was very figure friendly.
Dress #4: Of course this dress was one of my picks. I loved all of the ruffling throughout and then the top was really pretty. We all loved it, but wanted something a bit more reserved.
Dress #5: Creamy ivory color, perfect tea length and I loved the the stripe effect the dress had. It had an Audrey Hepburn feel to it.
So after Mom tried on all that we put one on hold and went to see what else was out there. We hit all of the big retail stores and some smaller shops and found….NOTHING.
We went back to pick up the hold dress after a very long day of shopping. Any idea which one we picked out? Which was your favorite?
In between all that shopping we also found some bridesmaid dresses for…….$38! Amazing. Now a girl needs some secrets so I’ll reveal what we picked on my wedding day recap.
It was nice to have weekend that didn’t revolve around client projects or my own personal projects.
What were you up to?
