I finally have all of our pictures sorted, so I thought I should get busy on the recaps. I will be posting a lot of pictures in each post, and I will be labeling them with the following in each title:
- During the meal (I am excluding the cocktail hour because it was just guests visiting while we were getting our extra photos done)
I hope you all enjoy. I had to go through 1,535 pictures to get just the highlights.
Me and my daughter 🙂
The note from hubby 🙂
My beautiful shoes!!!
My gown and the girls dresses with the DIY hangers that I made 🙂
The next 5 pictures are of me getting into my gown and shoes. That was fun 🙂
Here I have my crinoline on and I have literally crawled under my gown to get in it. The girls are trying to unhook the hanger from my gown, so it can be brought down over the rest of me.
Here I am finally in the gown. Thank goodness for that!!!
Here the girls are trying to fix the crinoline that I started out wearing and the crinoline that my gown already had. What a chore that was 🙂
Here we are trying to get my shoes on. Maybe I should have done that first :-/ But then we wouldn’t have gotten this picture 🙂
Here the girls are fluffing my crinoline and dress to make it look pretty 🙂
Here I am trying to hold it together before the walk to my again, at this time, future hubby 🙁 As you can see, my girls are ignoring me :-/
But they make up for it in the next 2 pictures 🙂

wow. i love these! some of my faves – your hair! the hanging dresses, the girls helping you with your shoes! all beautiful!
my mouth dropped open though that you had the guts to put your dress over your head! when i went to all my fittings, this is what i was doing. Then on my second to last one, it hit me, um, my hair will be all done up when i do this on the wedding day! and i had been putting it over my head because of the dropped waist would not fit over my hips to step into it. Well, i then had to try to step into my dress and i heard a “rip” noise. I panicked and the seamstress said it was nothing and she would actually let out a few stitches so i could step into it from now on. next fitting, i was able to step into my dress, while doing a little dance of course, but no ripping noises! anyway, just thought i would share after seeing what you did – must have been an ordeal to not ruin your hair!

Thank you ladies; you are all very sweet with your comments 🙂
@dynamic_duo: I had planned to step into my dress, but it was just hanging there, and we thought it would make a great picture, so I just jumped under it with my arms held way up while sheilding my hair and veil. It was a little scary, but it worked out. I am glad your seamstress was able to let out a couple of stitches for you. It would have been terrible if you wouldn’t have been able to get in your dress.

You and your daughter look so much alike!! I’m so glad you posted these and I can’t wait to see more!
My dress went over the head too but I had/have a very simple hairstyle that if it gets messed up just requires a comb to fix. 😉
I wanted to mention that I LOVE your bridesmaids’ dresses, the color and the fabric is gorgeous!

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments ladies 🙂
@MsInterpret: Thank you for the compliment on the girls dresses. The color of the fabric is Celedon, and it took me almost 3 months to get enough fabric to make them. It was totally worth it though, and my girls loved them.
