More to come... and more comments on photographer too.......
Since both FI and I are Chinese, we wanted to honor some Chinese customs and do a modern tea ceremony. This is the Chinese Dress I will be wearing. My mom thought I looked like a waitress at a restaurant, so she hand-sewed gold beadings on the patterns all over my dress. Thanks mommy!!
I had a huge heart-stopper last month (July). When I went for what I believed was my final fitting... I could not zip up my dress! There was a huge 1 inch of space between the zippers. I was mortified! I put myself (and the FI) on a strict diet, and since then have lost 8 lbs. I went to pick up my dress on Friday, August 13th. I know! Friday the 13th??? But much to my relief, the dress zipped up effortlessly! I didn't even have to squeeze my ribs in like I did on my 1st fitting. Yay! I also scheduled my hair and makeup trial on the same day so I could see the complete wedding day look: gown, makeup, hair, flower, veil, necklace/earrings, and shoes. I just bought a sparkly rhinestone bracelet from Macy*s for $14, so I will be wearing that on my right wrist. So excited!!
See??? The back zips all the way up!! And look at my shoes!! Pink and fluffy... and 4.5 inches!!!

After my first MUA cancelled, I scrambled to find another - and glad I did! The duo did an awesome job. I love it! On the day of I'm going to ask her to lighten my face. It's still a little too dark, but I just L.O.V.E. the hair!!!!
I like the eyes on these, and just a shade darker to match my inner lip. These are too light.
I like the shimmer on her upper lids, but the lips are waaay too nude. I don't like the under eyeshadow. I have dark circles, please don't make them stand out even more :)
