I originally had wanted a very simple Regency-style dress in a tea length and a pale yellow fabric. What I ended up choosing is quite a bit different, but you only get married once (at least that's the plan)!
Then, something happened and my seamstress had real life smack her around and it became difficult for her to be able to do the dresses. Plans changed. Jason's mom, his sister, and myself all traveled to David's Bridal and picked out new dresses.
I finally bought my shoes and I think they match my dress perfectly. They are Life Stride Judith in Vanilla.
I made my own veil using a McCall's pattern. It involved a headband (with rhinestone daisies), some seam binding, and ivory illusion.
