My dress came in a whole month before they had given us as the latest date and I got to go try it on for the first time last Friday.
Sophie, our almost two year old daughter, who is currently obsessed with all things fancy or as she says “très chic” (don’t look at me, she got it from a book) was very happy to be back at the fancy wedding dress shop. At any mention of the wedding or wedding dresses she has been telling me she is going to play peekaboo in the wedding dress, like she did when we first picked it out.
I was surprised to find out that my dress actually came with straps, which I knew was an option but thought they were something you had to order extra. I didn’t really like how they were shown on the model, crossed over each other, like this:
But when we tried them this way…
I fell in love. The plan now is to wear the straps like this for the ceremony and most likely just take them off for the reception, unless I decide I’d rather keep them on for whatever reason.
I also may opt for leaving them off all together, but I am definitely leaning towards having them on for the ceremony and I like the idea of changing my look up a bit for the reception. My hair might also go up in to a quick messy up do. It’s most likely going to be in the 80s/90s so I am thinking I will be a bit less hot and more comfortable with my hair up and the straps off.
I am awkwardly holding the straps in these pictures not realizing you can see them in the mirror, but this is how it looks strapless
