Sneak Peak: My Dress

I realize I hadn't posted pictures of my dress. As you may recall, I ordered this dress, sight unseen since I was in Iraq at the time. I wanted something other than Ivory/White and decided to go with a Light Gold, in reality it's more of a dark ivory though.  As you can imagine, it was a huge risk ordering like this. I was so worried about the fit and color and whether I was going to like it.

Lucky for me my future sister in law and her husband own a bridal and tux store in their town. I was able to email her and let her know the designer, style and size and she ordered it for me. The dress was suppose to arrive around the first week in December but instead arrived around Thanksgiving, not bad! The only opportunity to pick it up would be Christmas weekend while we were there and we picked it up the Monday after Christmas and I must say, it is the one!

Here it is on me, please excuse the poor iPhone pictures taken by Mr. E and my sister in law.








Hmmm, I think we can tell which ones were taken by Mr. E and which one was taken by my sister in law....


I love my dress and can't wait to wear it next week!

Your dress is gorgeous. Love the shoes, too. And your Mom's dress is lovely, too. I came to visit because you commented on my blog. I browsed and read your last 5 or 6 posts. I first want to say thank you to you and your man for the sacrifices you have made for us here at home, and I wish you a wonderful wedding in Vegas, and years and years of happiness!

That's a beautiful dress. I love the color idea you went with. I never had a wedding and so I've thought often what color I would choose when we eventually have a wedding to renew our vows.
