{wedding day} dress and details...

photos by: daniel meigs
hair flowers by: oh my deer (chelsea)
purse by: red ruby rose
jewelry by: me!

Do: get your nails done the day of or the day before..not a few days before. just throwing that out there.

Don't: get a strapless dress. ok. this is shocking, i know..but in my experience, if i had to do it all over again, this would be the one big thing i would change. don't get me wrong, i love my dress! but i wish i would have added some lacy straps for 2 reasons: 1. i was so worried about my bewbies flopping out and shocking guests, that i was hunched over in most of my pictures. 2. as the night went on, no matter how tight the dress was to get into, it stretched out..and i had to keep pulling it up. not sexy.

next: more vendor appreciation & seeing each other for the first time...

Good advice on the dress! I'm a big dancer, so that would definitely be an issue for me. Please show more pictures of how the actual reception turned out. Everything looks lovely and perfect!

Gorgeous! I love all the soft colors! I know you said your dress was uncomfortable but you look AMAZING!

I've heard lots of people say that about strapless dresses...but mine was no problem. I think if you go strapless, it needs to be two pieces. Otherwise, the weight of the bottom pulls it down and then the girls are popping out to say hello! LOL The people I know who had a two piece dress had no problems.

I LOVE your photos! Your photographer rocked! Can't wait to see the next installment of wedding beautifulness! :)

Beautiful wedding! I was wondering that about strapless... your dress is gorgeous, but I think I am going to look for something with lacy straps. I have to know where you got your shoes, they are so pretty! Please post where they're from!
