So, it looks like today is the day that everyone is showing off their wedding dresses! I am clearly jumping on the bandwagon.
Matt and I were married almost nine months ago, and I was - and still am - absolutely in love with my wedding dress. When we got engaged in March of 2008, we were still living in DC. My parents made the drive out from Michigan about two weeks later to celebrate, and we went dress shopping. And on the first day of shopping, at the first shop we went to...I fell in love. With the second dress, not the first. The first was a little crazy - I remember thinking that I would fit right in at a flamenco dance competition of some sort.
I really didn't know what I wanted in a wedding dress, besides sleeves. I didn't want a strapless dress - it seemed like they were overly-popular, and I really wanted something different. I loved lace, but didn't end up loving lace on me. I ended up with a Marisa dress called...well, I don't remember. Sorry. It was simple and elegant, and I felt amazing the second I put it on. It had very little detail - just some subtle embroidery and beading below the bust - but a really amazing, incredible train. At least, I think so. But I'm kind of biased, then, aren't I?
