Am I ok to post pictures of me in my dress? I originally said “no photos of me in my dress until our wedding day” but Saturday I had such a blast in my dress for the first time since it came in 2 weeks ago! I didn’t want to get out of it!
It was/is my birthday today and a holiday here today (Family Day) so it was a nice weekend full of birthday “things” including trying my dress Saturday, my Mom, two grandmothers and two bridesmaids were able to come as well….first time I took an entourage with me to the dress store!
We went to lunch after I finally took my dress off and it was a great couple hours with friends and family.
I won’t share these photos with anyone I know, they have to wait until the big day -however! Strangers on a wedding board…..I just want to share! I loved the dress (Mori Lee 4602) and can’t wait to spend a day in it in 138 days!

Congrats on finding the one! I love it when brides sit in the dresses…a great way to shock the sales consultants. Very pretty, and happy birthday 🙂

Yes…. the squatting was random. Ended up sitting like that for quite a few minutes, but can easily get down, the dress really starts to “give” once at my hips!
This is “my” dress, not the sample -found this in October and this was mine upon it’s arrival and now it’s off to alterations!

Yeh, you wear that dress well!
Haha its like public speaking! Our comments don’t mean all the much to you, but you care about your family and friends’ opinions, and thats why they can’t see you until the day of! 🙂

@RingPup: Your arms are TINY! Go through my posts to see some of my pics if you want to feel better. Yours don’t even squish out near the top when they are hanging at your sides like I’d say the average person’s does!

P.S. Ain’t nothin wrong with keeping your gown a secret! I did the same thing!

Yes, FI won’t see, nor will anyone else attending aside from who was there Saturday! Too fun, wish I got some pics with the veil. Still unsure on veil. Liked the feather/flower thing which was unplanned/unexpected getting thrown in my hair!
The pearls are being worn, and I had pearl earrings in as well!
Going to wear a nice side ponytail with hair straight down, or if it’s a muggy day side ponytail/bun 🙂
Thanks everyone! I was so excited to share, but can’t with those who I normally would be able to!

Haha!!! Same here!!! I am not showing anyone I know (except for my mom of course) but other than that, no one else is looking at my dress before the wedding.
And… GORGEOUS dress!!!

Beautiful dress! It looks perfect on you! Also love that you counted down the exact number of days until your wedding…. especially because you’re my date twin! I hadn’t yet arrived at the stage of counting down days as it’s always seemed so far away, but now seeing 138, I’m realizing it’s a lot closer than I thought! Yay!!

I love the back of your dress. It looks gorgeous on you. 🙂 The sitting/squat picture is super adorable.
