helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

So I’m working with Dena Bathgate of A Special Touch in Murfreesboro on my wedding dress and my bridesmaids dresses. I went by her shop on Wednesday for my first fitting (which didn’t happen- apparently there is another girl in town who is getting her dress from AST who has my exact same name… weird). While I was there, I got the sample swatches of the fabrics that my bridesmaids will be wearing for my wedding! (Minus one, one of the shades was on back order or something but it is the lightest shade of teal) The white in the center is my wedding dress fabric!!!! :) They are all dupioni silk, and while normally expensive, we are getting a great deal with Dena. I couldn’t be happier!

    um, hello! those are gorgeous! i’m such a fan of dupioni, and the shades you chose are wonderful. (i knew you were going with teal from the shoes you’ve showed before, but i didn’t realize each girl had her own shade. love it.) i can’t even imagine how good these colors are going to look on their skin. wow!

    isn’t this more fun than anything?

    I love those colours! I really like that they are coordinated and complementary, but not “matchy matchy.”
