Font:  Porcelain

Image:  I copied and pasted the image from a PW article called "Flourishes"  Big thanks to the wonderful bride, JessiePilot, for posting that! :)

Designer: Christian Dior purchased from Neiman's during a summer blowout sale.   It was more than 80% off and the best part is that I can wear them again!

Here are the shoes that did not work out...


The ever popular Chinese Laundry "Baldwin" platform shoes.   I loved them!  They were super comfortable but they were not practical.   I knew I'd never wear them again so I returned them.

However, I highly recommend them!  They are reasonably priced and gorgeous! 



I loved the "Pelle Moda" shoes (inspired by Kohler), but they were sold out.   So I found this pair at "Wild Pair" and I thought I had scored!!!   However, when I tried them on with my dress, the gems snagged the crinoline of the dress.  

I ended up wearing these at other peoples' weddings, and boy did these babies HURT!!!   But I must say, these were a hit!

I ended up purchasing a cathedral length veil (no edge) from Occansey Bridal or    I can't recommend them enought!   There prices are super reasonable (mine cost less than $80) and the customer service is excellent!
