SO happy with this dress, and pretty bummed I won't be wearing it this weekend... But I know I've made the right choice in deciding not to go to the event, and things worked out so that I can still go to the wedding AND get back to school! Thank you to everyone who gave me their insight and encouragement. You guys rock!
Technical Notes on the Dress:
I look pretty derpy in the pictures, but I was rushing to get dressed before the sun set! So no time to do hair or put in contacts. I just took off my glasses so I'm totally blind in these pictures!
As a side note, these pictures were taken in Mike's expansive front yard, which is the current location choice for our wedding reception. It has four giant trees (hence the leaves!) that will be bedecked with lanterns and strings of lights. Our theme is vintage garden party. :)
I love it (of course)! That trim looks great, and that shade of yellow is so pretty on you! Yellow tends to make me look disgusting, so I appreciate it even more on other people! ;)
And, hee, I hear you on both the rushing-to-take-pictures-before-dark and the blindness! I'd be bumbling around the ard into bushes, I'm so blind! Don't worry, you just look dreamy and thoughtful. *grin*
thank you! isn't it a fantastic color? i have some coat weight wool in just about the same color for a matching cloak too. there will be lots of yellow...!
wouldn't it be so nice to have your own personal photography studio?? it would make things so much easier! someday... *sigh*
