I bought this dress for $850 about 10 years ago. It is just beautiful, but no "The" dress anymore. It has never been warn, only tried on. It has been in a bag in my closet and has no stains or rips. I am not sure what a dress like this would go for, so make me an offer.
It's a BridalsOriginal in a size 4. The train is detachable. Please pm me if you have any questions.
My beautiful dress I got from AMiller here on PW. It's just beautiful!
I was born & raised in MT, so i have never warn a pair of heals in my entire life. I am more of a comfort kind of girl. Because of that I have decided to get a pair of flip flops for when my feet are just killing me. :) I got them at TJ Maxx for $19.99
Please excuse the crummy phone pics.
I just fell in love with the beautiful jewlery that SummerBride here on PW creates, but thought that I would try to recreate one myself. I bought my brooch at Herbergers on sale for $13.00 and the rest of the supplies at WalMart.
I will be making 4 of the same bracelets for my bridesmaids.
Here is my completed invitation. I will be sending it out just like this, no envelope.
This is the back of the envelope.
Close up of the invitation wording. It took me forever to find the right font. I wanted one that was elegant but not too frilly. I found this one on www.dufont.com
We have changed the date to September 12th, 2009. I want to have a fall wedding, but decided that October in MT would be way too cold. We usually have snow on the ground by the middle of the month. I decided to bump it up a month.
This is our monogram. Again, to find the right fonts took me forever. I bought the graphics from www.stockspert.com (thanks to the creative girls at work in the graphics department for suggesting this site)
Because I am on a VERY tight budget, I have decided to grow all of my flowers as they are my fave anyhow. I am planting over 1000 sunflower plants this spring and cross my fingers, they will grow this year like they did last.
Travis proposed to me for the first time when I was 16. We had every intention of getting married, but I was young and wanted to have a long engagement. One year led to another and before you knew it, we were having kids and getting married just fell to the back burner. This year he re-proposed with the ring of my dreams. I could not get a very good pic of it so I stole one off of JCPenny's web site. It's 1ct and a BIG upgrade from my first. :) I just love it.
Travis is a Journeyman Plumber and swears he will never wear a ring. He really just wants a tatoo of my name on his ring finger, but for the wedding I am getting him something like this barbed wire ring from www.limogesjewelry.com for $30.
