My FI and I got engaged 3 weeks ago and I got straight to wedding planning! My mom came down this weekend to help me and we went ahead and booked our venue and went dress shopping. I wasn’t sure I would find my dress this weekend but sure enough I only tried on a few and knew this was the one. It is Judd Waddell’s “Charlotte’. I even got to meet him as he was having a trunk show at the retailer and he drew a sketch of me in the dress. Thankfully he was there because he had to approve a special “split” size of the dress because I have such odd proportions! Anywho, would love to hear what all you amazing bees think about possible hair styles to go with the dress…
Here is our venue. It is an old Macy’s department store and the chandeliers are from the original Macy’s in NYC.
And here is my dress… Obviously will looks 10x better when it’s the right size.
I haven’t given any thoughts to hair or makeup or decor for the venue, so if anyone wants to put in their 2 cents I would love to hear. Thanks for reading, bees!

I love your dress, you look gorgeous ! And that venue is quite spectacular !
Since the roof is so high, I would keep the idea of verticality as of decor/centerpieces. Low centerpieces might look weird surrounded by high columns, high chandelier, etc.
If that’s of any help. 🙂

@NauticalDisaster: I was thinking high centerpieces as well… but thought maybe I could mix and match and do some tables with lower ones. My mom and I saw a picture of a really long head table that just had a bunch of candles and lower centerpieces, which I think would make it easier for people to come talk to us if we were sitting there? But just an idea. Also that uplighting is gorgeous. Thanks for the input!
@mypinkshoes: thank you! I did go to bridals by lori…I live in atlanta so i figured why not? I wasn’t on say yes to the dress but Monte and Lori both came over and talked to me and were SO nice!
