- Wedding: December 2013
My name is Emily. I’m 24, got engaged to my SO of 5 years back in December. The story of the proposal is pretty insanely hilarious, as has been 99.9% of our relationship….but anyway.
We are getting married in 2014. I say July because that’s the most likely time. Truth be told, I’m in school and he’s working and busy wity a lot of things, so neither of us has time to go looknat venues, so we’re doing in during the summer when I’m off………he’s quite involved, and I am appreciative of that. I never was one to plan weddings out as a little girl or anything….. a lot of wedding traditions I’m pretty clueless on. So yeah.
Our wedding colors are red and aqua blue. My favorite color is red, his is aqua blue, so that’s what we went with! I was originally looking for a red wedding dress, BUT all of the red options offered just weren’t what I wanted. Either too orange, or too dark. I wanted true cherry-red. So I settled on an ivory Essence of Australia gown that will look quite lovely with red accents, I just have to figure out which ones! Gloves? sash? some red crystal beading on the veil? gah.
Here is me in the shoppe, with the sample gown on. My cups runneth over because I didn’t have a bra on, and because it was too small up top………..they had to order two sizes bigger than the rest of me, lol. clearly, the actual gown will need some tailoring. I also do hope to lose about 20 pounds…….last year I was on steroids and it packed on about 40 pounds in less than 6 months, so yeah, it sucks. Wedding dress shopping sort of brought out all of my teenage body issues all over again. yay! not.
the red is from some red ribbon my accompanying friend ran to Hobby Lobby to buy, to give me reference.
