In a couple of weeks it is our Second Wedding Anniversary and so far I haven’t really blogged about our wedding, so this year I thought I would do a few posts starting with my wedding dress.
As a child I always had an idea of what I wanted my wedding dress to be like, but when Mr L asked me to marry him that idea wasn’t me anymore, I was a mum and my childhood ideas of my wedding weren’t the same.
But I knew that I wanted it to be slightly different to everyone elses.
I didn’t want a long dress I wanted a tea length dress, one that you could see my shoes in and one that had a slight vintage feel to match the flow of our wedding.
I spent a while trying to find the dress that I liked and looked in a few wedding dress shops and actually didn’t like any of them, I didn’t hate any of them but none of them fitted to what I actually wanted.
In the end I started looking online trying to find a dress that I liked and decided that I would then try to locate where it was.
I feel in love with my dress online, I found it on a website, and I loved it. After I found it I was a little sneaky and actually asked Mr L what he thought of the site, I didn’t tell him I liked any dresses just wanted him to know what he thought of the site and I asked him what dress he would pick me, and he picked one dress. The dress that I loved.
So that was it, even though you hear horror stories of ordering dresses online I decided to take the risk and pray it was ok.
And it was…
Every single tiny detail was amazing.
The top of the dress was amazing it was a lace cover, and if I wanted I could take the top of and make the dress into a strapless dress, however I didn’t do this as I loved the lace top too much.
It was just my perfect dress from the top to the bottom and the front and back.
I adore the back detail and loved that there was so much detail on the dress when most of the service people just saw my back.
I loved how I felt in the dress, how comfortable it was to wear and how it was just the dress that I wanted for my perfect day.
It was my perfect dress, that I still adore today.
