It's here!!!

The bridal salon called me Sunday to let me know that my wedding dress is in!! I'm so excited to see it and try it on! Sadly, this week is insane for us since we close on Friday, so I'm not sure when I will have a chance to get down to the store in the near future. Possibly next Monday on my day off I can drag myself away from house painting to try it on!

This also means that "operation honeymoon" needs to be kicked up a notch. Uh oh. I decided against that second bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream last night. Ha! 

We made it to the Brooks Brothers outlet yesterday morning and purchased J's entire wedding outfit (except shoes) for 60% off. Since everything was on sale, we decided to buy his brother's outfit as well. We got two navy blazers, two white button down shirts and two pairs of khaki's for under $500. I'd say that's a pretty damn good deal. 

Just because I love it so much, here's a picture of my dress...
Ok, don't pay attention to my gross hair. Yuck. 

If you look at the reflection in the mirror, you can see what the dress looks like from the front. We added the beaded sash (taken off another dress in the store) and ended up ordering it separately because we loved it so much. So my dress will be completely unique since the dress and sash are two different designers. We're also having the sash cut and attached to the dress, so there wont be a big huge poofy organza bow over my butt, just a seamless beaded sash all the way around. Sigh, I love my dress!!

Posting may be a bit sparse this week due to the house stuff and packing, but I'll be back soon with tons of updates I'm sure!!
