~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
First, it was the wedding date. (Our original date was trumped by a BACHELOR PARTY.) Whatever - that's old news, and I'm over it. However if it rains all day August 14th, and July 31st is an absolutely gorgeous day, our friend Mason is gonna have lots of 'splaining to do! Like, a year's supply of Oreos-worth!
Then, it was our venue.
Two weeks ago, my dress came in without the correct special order changes I intended, so it came in as a trumpet skirt instead of a modified a-line. (Turning it into a modified a-line is what SOLD me on the dress, so this was no bueno.) Figuring out where we go from here literally *just* got straightened out between the bridal shop and the designer, and the gown is being redesigned, (this time, with a different skirt pattern), AND either Pronovias or my bridal shop is waiving any additional fees. Heck, yeah! Gotta love excellent customer service. :) And, phew! I thought I was going to have to go dress shopping again, and in my online searches, I wasn't finding anything I loved as much...
So, here's me in the gown that came in, checking out my hippyliciousness. What? It's a word. I just made it up... Anyway, you can see I'm not in love with what I'm seeing, especially from the front.
Here's the silhouette of the skirt that is going into my new gown. (The lace will be like my dress.)
Dress from the '06 Spring Collection of the Elie Saab collection for Pronovias. Sorry, don't know what gown it is. :(
Put it together, and it will be something like this:
I am *sooooooooo* excited for it to come in in June. :)
And, now, the shoes that I ordered, in double-wide EE size? They're too narrow. Who knew my feet were that ginormous? (Kind of a blow to the ego, I'm telling ya!) ; )
I'm thinking about going the ballroom dance shoe route now, like these, but with a 2 1/4" heel:
And dye them similar to this color:
Anyone else experiencing lots of "Plan Bs" this with their wedding planning? Do you find, sometimes, Plan B is BETTER than the original?
