Picking a wedding dress is a daunting task. Thousands of choices, to wear for one day, one very special day. I had a few things in mind and I was never set on wearing my mother’s dress. But really, there was no other choice. No other dress could have matched in beauty what this dress held in meaning, but oh was it beautiful! The bodice was covered in lace and cut pearls. The detailing was exquisite and the back was to die for. I felt like a princess, and to me, that was what I looked for in a dress.
I wore gold and pearl earrings and simple pearl bracelet, both gifts from my mother that morning. I wore the veil my mother wore to the ceremony but went with a full up-do and no veil for the reception. I wore bright red heels that stayed mostly hidden under the dress.
Thanks, Mom, for letting me share this with you.
My favorite compliment the whole day was when Dad told me I looked just like you.
