helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

A few glamor shots of THE wedding dress. You might remember I had my dress custom designed and made by a lady in Murfreesboro named Dena Bathgate at A Special Touch.

My Bridesmaids helping me into the dress. My dress was separate from my crinoline. and I wore that full length bra that had bra hooks all the way up it, but dipped a little lower in the back. I’m a busty girl and this was the best thing I found to give me support and a little va-va-voom (ifyouknowwhati’msayin’) 🙂wedding dress

I got final alterations done the week of the wedding… she had to take it in over an inch… and apparently that wasn’t quite enough because my dress was too big still. I kept looking down all night and seeing my bra hanging out! 😛 Everyone said they didn’t notice but it made me feel so self-conscious!wedding dress

A little detail shot of the ring I picked up at Forever 21 the week of the wedding for like $2 or something ridiculous. I love it!wedding dress
