Wedding Wednesday, post 7

Wednesday, and you know what that mean... Wedding Wednesday, and today I'm going to tell you about the dress.

I did not have an idea of what I wanted it to be like, it's not like I have always known how it should look. I remember back in the earlier nineties I saw some dresses that I thought back then that was how my dress should be if I ever got married... but if you hadn't noticed what was in back then... well is was not what I was going for in 2009! I thought I wanted something that was tight all the way to my knees, and then it would be huge from there down... well that was in the early nineties, which is almost the eighties...

Me in my dress just before going to the church. I don't have any good close up pictures of the dress unfortunately...

So then I started looking around for a dress in the fall 2008 I had no clue to what I wanted. On one hand I would like something simple, but on the other hand I wanted something amazing since I wouldn't get the chance again. Our neighbour knew a dress designer who would make my dress, I just had to know somewhat what I wanted... and besides I wouldn't be without trying dresses.

I found this online, so you have a better view of the details!

I went to a bridal shop with my mum and my brothers girlfriend. The woman asked what I wanted, and I said "I'm not sure, but something simple and something amazing, and preferably with a halterneck". The woman and I picked out a few dresses, but they didn't have many with a halterneck, but they could sew one on she said. The first dress I try was actually the one I got, I tried about 8 dresses, and every time I looked over at the dress I had on first. I was just so right, and I bought it, I figured since it was all I wanted, why go to the trouble of getting one made... I had figured I would like parts of one and parts of another.

I bought the first dress I tried on, and that's the story about my dress:)


  1. when you find the right dress, you just sort of know. that's how i felt too. i had no idea what i wanted, so i just tried on a bunch of different types until i ended up putting a scrappy little dress on and thought "this is so me!" but i kept trying on dresses, because isn't that one of the most fun parts about getting married? :) you look so beautiful in your dress connie!

  2. That's a gorgeous dress Connie :) I mailed your goodies out today and was told you should have it in 10-12 working days :)


Your comments makes me smile:)
