On a lovely afternoon in Atlanta, my mom, sister and grandmother came with me to Bridals by Lori to pick out my dress. My sister had gotten hers there a couple years ago, and their service, collection of dresses, and personal attention is outstanding. A three-floor facility, the bridal salon is on the top complete with a runway. I found the most beautiful gown I've ever seen and cannot wait to wear it on my wedding day. And they did ask me if I was saying yes to the dress! No details until after the wedding, but I am over the moon with my gorgeous dress, which is by Rivini. (As well as my veil, earrings and white faux-fur stole that we also purchased there!)
The following morning, we went back to pick out the bridesmaid dresses. They have such a wonderful collection and since my extremely pregnant sister (at the time) couldn't try them on, I also got to try on the bridesmaid dresses. Fun, fun!
Here's what I went with:
The dress is by Jim Hjelm.
The color I chose is Tea Rose - a pretty shade of pink.
Much to my surprise, I got a call a month ago from a casting director from Say Yes to the Dress asking if my bridesmaids and I would like to be on the show. It was to be for the Bridesmaids version of the show and I would come in with my girls when they got their dresses altered and they would also come to film at my wedding. While flattered, in the end I turned it down because I wasn't sure I'd want to be interviewed on my wedding day. I hated to miss out on the opportunity, but you only get one wedding day!
While I did say no to the show, I am thrilled to have said yes to the dress!
