“The Dress” My Modest Wedding Dress

In honor of our Two Year Anniversary today, I’m celebrating on the blog by posting all things wedding! Starting here with my wedding dress! I’m so excited!

I found this absolutely beautiful wedding dress at A Bridal Center on the very first day I tried on dresses. I went with my mother, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law not expecting to find “the dress” but we did! I knew generally the look that I wanted: a classic lace full-length gown with sleeves and a modest neckline. (When you’ve pinned the same style of dress over and over again.. that’s the one you want!)

This dress is a Maggie Sottero Bronwyn Marie dress that I didn’t need to alter at all besides having the sides taken in a bit and the dress hemmed a few inches (I’m 5’3″). It’s actually a champagne-colored slip dress covered in ivory lace. I almost didn’t try it on because it looked so champagne in real life but the second I put it on I fell in LOVE with it! I loved the champagne color and the dimension that it gave to the lace! I loved that the lace was gradually more transparent at the bottom and I loved the scalloped lace hemline. The v-neckline and capped sleeves flattered my shape and the high back and buttons were stunning. I can’t bring myself to sell it because I’m still absolutely smitten with it.
