Our Wedding

When I saw that Sasher’s Life was hosting a wedding dress blog tour, I knew I had to participate.  I love looking at wedding dresses AND my 5 year wedding anniversary is coming up on June 5th.

We got married on the beach on Anna Maria Island in Florida on June 5, 2005.  Since it was going to beach wedding, I wanted something casual but still wedding appropriate (no white bikini here!!!!).  I ended up going with a bridesmaid dress in white.  It was strapless with no train.

I loved how it looked & that I wasn’t too uncomfortable in it.
I also really liked the lace up back (even though it broke while I was getting ready.  I had my mom, my mother in law & my photographer’s wife all working on it at one point!
Here they all are working on me.  I felt pretty helpless at that point.
 My favorite thing was that I could even dance in it!
So the question of the day was: Would I sell it?  I dunno.  Maybe.  Right now it is sitting in a closet in Alabama because I took it there so my sister could wear it in her wedding if she wanted.  She ended up buying another dress but I have yet to bring my dress home.  I like having it but it is a bit of a waste of closet space.  Evan is my only child and I don’t think he’ll be wearing my dress.  I know I do have Nicole (my stepdaughter) but borrowing wedding dresses is more a mother/daughter thing than a stepmother/stepdaughter thing.  I think I would rather give it to someone if I could.  I honestly didn’t pay very much for it so I doubt I would get much for it.  I’m glad I have all my pictures from my wedding day, though.  To me they are much more special than the actual dress.
So do you still have your wedding dress?  I’d love to hear your story.  If you blog about it, make sure to go sign up on the McLinky over at Sasher’s Life.

Thanks for checking out my post! I LOVED your dress. Still wedding appropriate but very suitable for a tasteful beach wedding too! I agree with you, some people do go overboard with the beach weddings and forget that they can still make it beachy and elegant. Beautiful!

Gorgeous dress! Love how relaxed you look in the photo where everyone's trying to get it laced up at the back.
