All the little wedding things



Until you get married you forget all the added extras that come into call for your outfit. The back history is that I'm on my third dress for the wedding, after falling out with the first and the second not fitting. With the second result I went into panic overdrive and with only a week left before the wedding the hunt was really on. Then I stumbled over this little sheer knee length, sleeved dress from Forever 21. Its a gorgeous rich peachy colour and from the moment I tried it on, I knew it was the one. While it's not a traditional wedding dress as such, colour or design wise it's totally me. Our wedding venue was a little different, our vows were contemporary [they made me cry every time I read them and the selected reading before the day] but this all reflects us, and our wishes for our day. I guess when you pay for it all and organise it yourselves rather then having families involved you get that added extra freedom.

I have been very silent on blogger and twitter for the past week but now we're back from our honeymoon [five nights in Chicago] i'll find the time to bombard you with tales and loads of photographs of our adventures [will be hard narrowing down from the 450+ photos that I took].

  5. I think it's refreshing when people choose wedding dresses that aren't "traditional", because then it makes the wedding more about who you are as a person and not what the wedding industry says you should be. If I get married I think I'll probably go for a non-traditional dress too - my mum got married in a suit because she didn't want to buy something that she'd wear once and never again!

    Congratulations on getting married and I hope you had a fantastic honeymoon!

  6. Rachael, I love all the pretty details of your wedding. The print on the dress is adorable, and I love that you did it YOUR way instead of what was traditionalyl thought of as appropriate.
