Wedding Update

Got my wedding dress today. Being an untraditional bride, I bought an apple-red bridesmaid's dress from David's Bridal. I really wanted an even more informal sundress-type gown, but I couldn't find exactly what I wanted in the color I wanted ANYWHERE. So I decided to just try on every short dress they had and picked the most flattering. It ended up being the first dress I found on their website that I really liked. Now I just need shoes and earrings. I have this coming Friday off for Good Friday, so I think Ricky and I will take a little trip down to the courthouse to sign the papers...May 23 is coming up faster than I can believe!

That's a beautiful dress, Lexi! I like nontraditional bridal attire. :-) I ended up going much more traditional than I intended with my own wedding gown. A friend of my mother's made my dress for me, which ended up being a great cost saver. She sewed the dress and my mom did the bead work.

Thanks! I really wanted something even more casual, but I like what I ended up with. If I knew anyone who was handy with a needle, I'd totally have them make it, but, alas, sewing is going the way of the dinosaur, it seems.

I always wanted to be married in red. No white for me! A college professor once called me the Wife of Bath (from the Canterbury Tales) because we both dressed in red.

Yeah, the wedding is coming soon...but I'm sure we'll be ready.
