It's getting to be that time. Our first anniversary is right around the corner (?!) To celebrate, I thought I would do a few wedding retrospective type posts. Behind the scenes stories I haven't shared on here, thoughts about the next few years, photos I haven't posted, things like that. Hope you enjoy!
I haven't talked on here much about my dress.
Finding a wedding dress was something I'd always dreaded. We got engaged in October and I didn't start shopping for a dress until late January. Of course, I managed to find and fall in love with this dress right away. It wasn't at all what I was looking for (I was terrified of a strapless dress) but it just jumped off the rack at me. The best part about this dress and what made me notice it right away is the colour. Officially, it's "champagne over light gold" coloured. To me, it just didn't make me look super pale.
It seems to photograph pretty white though, which is interesting. This picture gives you a bit of a better idea of the colour.
I didn't go back for the dress until March. That time when I tried it on, I knew I couldn't not get it. Only problem? The price had gone up and it was now $500 over my price range. I fretted some more, but the dress store was amazing and offered to give it to me for the original price. Score.
After the wedding, the dress did what so many other wedding dresses did - hung in a closet. It stayed at my mom's house until we moved to our house and had room for it. Now it lives in my closet with my other dresses.
And so it sits, my beautiful dress, so sad in the closet. Any suggestions on what to do with it?
