Last week Women who do it all had a link (fashion Fridays) party to share your wedding dress. You didn't have to post about it, just put your picture up and link your blog. But after she featured my dress I though why not post about it.
We went to Mexico with some close family and friends. It was nice to be able to spend 30 minutes on the wedding planning (outside booking the trip), and then spending the week with everyone instead of a few hours.
The dress turned out to be my obsession. I felt because I didn't really do any planning for the wedding I wanted my dress to represent me. I loved it! And once I got the dress I was excited to "trash the dress".
Trashing the dress didn't go as planned. After talking several times with my new husband we decided he would not wear his platinum wedding band in the water (it was a little loose). Well he forgot...and after about 5 minutes in the water his wedding band was LOST! Talk about downer. There were several people on the beach that got up and came to help look for his wedding band (how nice), but that was a lost cause. That was it off he went. Thank goodness the ring was insured and we were able to get a new one, but that was the end of my trash the dress! BUMMER!
It was a really good time and I would not have done it any differently.
The only thing I had to pick for the wedding, the flowers and the location (2 beach locations, garden or inside)
I forgot to order an extra flower for my hair, so my mom went on a hunt to find a flower on the grounds and cut it down for me (I'm pretty sure it was a big no no)
All of our family and friends that made the trip (the photographer was family as well )
