Thanks for the lovely comments. Even though I didn’t choose a white number for myself, I’m really enjoying all the beautiful, dresses, brides and rings on this thread.

CinqueTerre:  “simple” isn’t a bad word, and I don’t take it that way at all. 🙂 the words I do use tend to be “clean” and “modern”, but tI each their own!

  • Wedding: September 2014

I got married in September of 2014, but this thread is so fun I wanted to play along! (I’m sorry my pictures are so huge, but I couldn’t figure out how to size them on an iPad…)

Here is my beautiful, custom Modern Trousseau gown:

And here is my engagement ring and the 2 wedding bands I wear:

My wedding dress

My engagement ring

My ring with the band I picked. All these stacks are making me debate whether or not to buy a sparklier ring to go behind it!

CinqueTerre:  haha thank you! I don’t see your ring often, so it’s possible that some vendors would be interested. In a way it’s a compliment lol but at the same time no! Just no. Make your own and use your own pic! Lol

Here are my 2 dresses, my engagement ring, and my custom band. I just went to my jeweller yesterday to approve the wax model of my band. It will have the same small diamonds on it as the ones on the shank and halo part of my ering. I can’t wait to see the finished product next week!

So I’m an old, old, OLD married lady (ha, ha!), but this post is such fun. I’ve debated and debated over it, and decided I wanted to join in, too. 

This was my dress. (Not the greatest picture, but this is a photograph of a photograph. Back when I got engaged and married, we didn’t have smart phones with cameras. So I don’t have any pictures of trying on the dress, etc. This is pretty much it. ) I love, love, loved my dress. Still do, actually. I know it’s not at all what’s in style now. And, actually, I don’t think it was even in style back when I got married — ha, ha! But I had a really specific idea of what I wanted for my dress. I looked all over the place for something that matched my inner vision, but, of course, could not find it anywhere. I ended up going to a seamstress in one of the small towns near where I was living at the time. I told her what I wanted (drop waist, long sleeves with a very slight sort of “puff” at the top, sweetheart neckline), and she put two different patterns together to create the dress of my dreams. My Mother-In-Law purchased the material for it as a gift to me, which was HUGE because she was very against me the entire time Darling Husband and I dated and were engaged. The material was embroidered silk, and it had little seed pearls all over it. Wherever she made a seam, my seamstress took all the little beads off the material, saved them, and then hand-sewed them back into the dress.

My engagement ring, the original version:

My ERing with her sort of recent “face-lift”:

And my wedding band, which I wore as a stand-alone:

longtimemrs:  what color/brand is that pink polish that you have with your stand alone wedding band? It’s so pretty!
