say yes to the dress

i was so excited to finally get my hands on my wedding dress a few weeks ago!  as i tried it on and admired all of it's beautiful details, i couldn't help but reminisce how i envisioned my dream wedding dress throughout certain points in my life (childhood, preteens, teen, twenties and beyond).  here's a few pictures representing my thankful evolution in bridal fashion...

early 80's.  she's a fashion icon... don't hate.

late 80's.  i wanted my colors to be blush and bashful.

i'm a little embarassed to admit this one, but... it was the 90's.

2000's, monique lhuillier dress made entirely from peacock feathers.  i still think this dress is amazing, yet just a bit over the top ;-)

currently, i absolutely love tea-length gowns! unfortunately this type of dress doesn't really go with my theme/venue... but if i was doing a courthouse ceremony, this would be the one.

 
 if money wasn't an issue (why can't i just be rich?), then i'd be rocking this gown down the aisle on june 28th... however, i'm a bride on a budget, and $1800 seems just a little ridiculous for a dress you will only wear for one day.

 today!!!  ^^^eeee, i'm so excited.  i wish i could show you more... unfortunately you'll have to wait until june, because that man of mine likes to frequent my blog from time to time :)  i really love the way my dress looks and feels, and i couldn't imagine a dress that is more... me. (although, hopefully my tastes won't change so much in the future, that it will eventually make me cringe like the one with the red sash!!)
