As promised, I'm breaking down the details of our wedding day, and my first love in the whole planning process was my dress. My bridesmaids, mom and now mother-in-law went shopping one weekend early in January, and we had so much fun. My dress is one of the first I tried on, and by about the fourth dress shop appointment, I was totally over trying on any other dresses, and had this one dancing in my mind. I had no idea what kind of dress I wanted for sure, but I knew I didn't want a ballgown, and I was hoping not to go strapless. I got my wishes, and I loved the lace details of my dress. Much to the chagrin of my mom early in the wedding day and Kyle later, my dress also had beautiful buttons down the back, but I'm not apologizing to either of them - it was a dreamy detail!
I found this at a cute boutique, Ready or Knot, in Omaha, and I loved the shop as much as my dress. My mom actually made my veil, which makes it even more special, but with the long aisle of the church, I loved the idea of a cathedral veil. Kyle & I both love red, so I went with a cute, summery lace dress from David's (it surprised me they were so cute!), but I loved the pop of color on my bridesmaids and in all our pictures. Our cutie flower girls were also dressed at David's, and I tried to keep their look simple and girly. Picking out dresses was so fun, and I pretty much just stare at pictures of mine now...I think I'll take my sister's advice and do some housework in my dress before I have it cleaned ;)
