- Wedding: March 2012
So this is what I am thinking, wedding is just under 10 months away.
I want one dress that I will actually wear to the Ceremony to be a total surprise for my fh. This is going to be an ivory gown that his mom is going to add camo trim to the top and bottom for me. I am buying ties for the guys that will match, and she is going to make a vest for fh to wear as well. My girls made it clear in front of him that I will not be wearing camo… YEAH OK… my wedding not theirs.
Anyway, for the first look photo’s I want to have a simple dress that I will wear for the reception as well, that will look like what I could wear for the wedding itself, but be a little more casual that my gown. Also can be something I can wear for formal night on the cruises that we like to take.
Does this make sense?
Basically I will wear the reception dress to the park for our “First Look” & bridal party photo’s, then on the way to the ceremony go and change into my actual wedding gown. After the ceremony and before reception which are in the same location, just ceremony is outside while reception is inside, we will take the family shots as well as a couple more bridal party shots where I will actually be in my wedding gown.
