Show Us Your Life - Wedding Dresses

So apparently the thing to do today is to show pictures of your wedding dress. It's kind of a crazy story....

All my life I thought I wanted a dress that looked like this

Then I started trying those on....and all that weight I had gained since high school (20-30 lbs-ish) didn't look so great in that style. Plus, Oklahoma bridal salons weren't really quite on page with the latest Vogue Weddings, and the selection of Bridal Mermaid cut dresses was pretty much....nil.

So, having to work with what they had, I found this other dress, which was the opposite of what I thought I wanted, but turned out to be perfect for the setting. These are the shots from the photographer, so I can't edit them and sharpen them the way I'd like.

Yes, we were married in the rotunda of the State Capital. It was beautiful and special and HOT, but so worth it.


  1. Such a pretty dress. The detail on the back is great!

  2. It may not be what you were after, but it sure did work for you! You look gorgeous. And I bet the state capital was a beautiful setting!

  3. You look amazing...Your dress was gorgeous. I enjoyed my visit to your blog...Hope you will visit me...I have a fun post up today with two giveaways on Monday.

  4. Isn't it funny how your dress picks you? I always wanted halter style, but it looked like butt. Your dress was gorgeous and perfect! I love the bouquet too!

  5. Pretty dress! I had no idea you could get married at the state capitol! That's awesome!
