- Wedding: June 2013
So we’re officially pushing our wedding date back to June 2013, since we can’t do it this June like we planned. There’s just too much going on with his family (his brother died a few months ago, his sister is having some health issues, and his parents aren’t dealing with it very well). So originally we were planning to reset our date to late August or early September. That’s not working out either because we’re having trouble coordinating with my out of state family (some of which are in the wedding party) and his out of state family. So since neither of us want to get married over the winter months as it would be odd with our carnival theme and I would freeze to death in my dress, we are going to wait until next June. Both of us still want to get married this year though, so we’ve decided to either elope or do a courthouse ceremony with our families and a couple of close friends at the end of September.
I’ve been looking at a lot of possible dresses for the occasion and found way too many I love. My goal was to find one under $100 that isn’t too fancy, that I’ll definitely wear again. He said to get whatever I want and to look at colored dresses, since I’m doing the whole fancy ivory dress for the big celebration. So I found this mint green one, which was on sale last week for $64 and had free shipping and I figured I’d go ahead and see if I liked it on me. It showed up a couple of days ago and I love it! I showed it to him and he thinks it’s awesome and I should keep it for the occasion.
What does everyone think, is it a good elopement/courhouse wedding dress? The first picture is on the model, and the others are me. My pictures didn’t come out that great, the lighting was terrible.
