I am having a small destination wedding (with a hometown dinner afterwards), so I had some specific requirements for my dress: sheath/slight a-line, straps or sleeves, no train, under 1000. As you will soon see, my dress ended up being a bit different!
I had been casually looking for awhile. One day, while I was running some unrelated errands, I drove by a bridal shop across town. I decided to stop in. While I was waiting for someone to become available, I started out by scoping out the back sample room. There I found my dress. It’s Tuscany by Watters. I fit into the sample size, bought it for a steal (less than 35% of retail), and left with it that day.
I am up about 20 lbs from my “happy” weight, but I feel pretty good in this dress as is! I still have a couple of months before I need to think about alterations, so I am trying to get back into my running routine.
So here’s the question. I found my shoes (pre-dress!), and I have my jewelry (pearl necklace, crystal and pearl drop earrings). I am now on the hunt for a hair accessory. I do not want to wear a veil, but I do want something in my hair. As you can tell, my hair is pretty short, and I am keeping it that way! Has anyone seen anything on etsy or in any stores that seems to go with my dress? I’d love any recommendations!
