You see, I totally love wedding dresses. I love to design them, make them, buy magazines full of them, browse bridal shops, try them on (OK...I used to love trying them on when I was a few sizes smaller...and not married). I love them hanging in my house or on my dressmaking mannequin. In fact, there is not much I love more than wedding dresses other than my husband and family!
So, I've been wanting to ask those of you brave enough to share to put up a photo of your wedding dress (with or without you in it). But I wondered if it was too personal, if I was asking too much. And then today I read the lovely Chantelle's blog at fat mum slim about her stunning wedding dress and saw the 28 comments and realized people do like to share their wedding dress stories. I am still wondering if everyone would be as keen to share photos but here goes...I'm bravely asking you to anyway.
You could post a link to a photo in the comments box here or you could put up a post on your own blog.
Of course I'll put mine on in a sec. I just have to say that I totally adored my dress. It totally made me feel like a fairy princess. And I totally do not fit into it today!! But Jodie (@jodieansted on Twitter) or at Mummy Mayhem commented on another of Chantelle's posts that she could still fit into hers and she is celebrating her 10th wedding anniversary this Saturday! That is amazing and that sounds like a challenge to me. My new goal is to fit back into my wedding dress for our 10th anniversary. I have 2 1/2 years...plenty of time *crossing everything I can!*
Here's mine -
Yes, it is pink!
It was made by the loveliest twin sisters and amazing designers, Margaret & Michelle at MXM Couture.
I would love to see yours.
If you don't have a wedding dress photo, what about a bridesmaid one? Formal ?? Debut, even...
