The Shoes

 I care way more about shoes than a dress I will wear once.  One of the only wedding details I had ever fantasized about was blue Manolo Blahnik shoes.  And then, right before my engagement, these cobalt satin shoes arrived at the boutique where I work.  Shoes...check.

The Dress

I found my dress on the first day.  I decided to check out my favorite store BCBG.  I remember seeing 2 cute dresses online that may work.  I tried them on, and the second one just felt right.  Simple, modern, fit well, and cheap!  It was a 20 minute decision.  With my gift card it was $218.  Leaving more for my shoe budget!

Why do I look pregnant here?

Something Old, Something New...

Something Old:  My grandmother's vintage beaded white purse and a hankie that my friend found at a vintage store.
Something New:  A diamond circle necklace from my Aunt and my crystal "I Do" panties by Hanky Panky.
Something Borrowed:  The garter that David caught at our friend's wedding 3 months before we got engaged.
Something Blue: My shoes.

Our Rings

I decided not to get a wedding band because I love how tiny and delicate the band of pave diamonds is on my ring.  The ring is a Harry Winston replica with a cushion cut center stone surrounded by micro-pave diamonds. 

David's ring is palladium.  Satin finish in the center, polished on the edges, with milligraining.


I also found the bridesmaid dresses at the BCBG outlet.  I wanted my colors to be all cream, with texture and interesting detail.  I found these lace layered shift minis for $89.  They had the casual vintage feel that I was going for.  I found their shoes there also.  I loved how the lace looked against these gunmetal faux python sandals.

Groom and Groomsmen 

David wore a black Zara suit, and a black tie.  Since he loves shoes as much as I do, he had to get some hot shoes too, so he found some black patent faux stingray and alligator  Creative Recreations. The groomsmen wore black suits and ties and solid black Converse.
