Finding the wedding gown was a bit of an accident. I originally had my heart set on a Pronovias, but decided to shop around just in case. My sister (also MoH), my mother-in-law, and I went to an outlet in Sacramento, and I tried on a bunch of dresses that didn't particularly interest me. Eventually, the sales associate who was helping me brought out this dress with these matronly lace sleeves. I said, "I don't think so." She said, "Just tuck the sleeves in." I fell in love and took it home that day. I later brought it in for alterations to have the sleeves removed, of course.
We purchased our wedding bands from a small family-owned jewelry shop in the Bay Area. They came highly recommended, and we were very pleased with the quality of their service and products! They allowed me to design my own band to match my engagement ring, and my husband was able to specify what type of metal he wanted in his ring (choice of gold, platinum, palladium).
