@blushbridetobe:  Um, I do NOT believe that you are 40 or older. Liarliarpantsonfire.

@blushbridetobe:  I LOVE your dress!! It’s stunning! I wish I had seen something like this before I chose my dress, but it wasn’t until a couple of years later — on WB and shows like SYTTD — that I saw something like what you’ve chosen.  It’s absolutely gorgeous on you!!

Here is my dress. (I am plus sized, and really wasn’t able to fit into the sample dresses properly, so I felt as if my options were very limited.) In hindsight, and after seeing so many really beautiful gowns on this site and on various wedding shows, I have often struggled with some dress regret.  However, I do love many things about my gown — especially that it is 100-percent silk and has Swarovski crystals on the bodice and back of the dress as well as the fact that it has clear buttons going down the back of the skirt.

non pro, and some screen caps of the pro pics, I don’t have them back yet.

a closeup with my MOH, my high school BFF 🙂 and also getting dressed so you can see the detail better in the bodice.

and this one just because I love it, with my lovely 24 year old daughter.  I’m 44 by the way.
