I love Camila, her blogs was one of my first faves, but when we started emailing a few months back I was all WHAT THE WHAT? This girl rules. Aka we have been told we remind people of each other, and since I think she is awesome, I concur. Anyway, if you don’t already know and love her blog, go check it out, otherwise…Enjoy!
It was taken in the limo before I headed out to the church. It’s one of my favorites, because you can check out my drool worthy dress that I had to have. Of course it was made by Vera Wang and even though I had already purchased an Amsale dress at a crazy discount sale for $400 I had a change of heart when I slipped into the Vera Wang. I knew right away that it was my dress so out came the credit card. Would love to say it was Mom & Dad’s credit card footing the bill, but the dress bill was footed by me. To date it’s the most expensive article of clothing I’ve ever bought, but I don’t regret it for a second. It was heaven. I topped it off with my darling vintage pearls that were an ebay steal for $12! You know I always love a mix of high and low.
My best piece of advice? Enjoy it! It goes by so fast. Treasure every second. Stop worrying about the centerpieces and your bridesmaid hair, etc. Just think about you and your groom and how everyone is there to celebrate with you! Some people decide to forgo a videographer, but it was one of our splurges. It is so fun to put on your dress (yes, we will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary this coming January and I have yet to get it professional cleaned and preserved.) and watch it on your anniversary! (yes, Jon has come home and totally found me squeezed into my dress. 🙂 )
Thanks for inviting me to share a little bit about my day. I hope you enjoying the whole process and can’t wait to see pictures of your big day! Many hugs and kisses to you and Pete!
