My Wedding Gown and Tiaras from Outer Space



My mom and I found the perfect dress just four days after the proposal. David's Bridal was having a sale. Mom and I were just going to have a look, and the teenage romantic in me couldn't wait to try on my first gown. I was looking for something simple, something classic. It was easy to choose, actually; it was the fourth or fifth one and the only one where mom and I both started crying. It also was the most comfortable by a landslide. It's ivory, beaded lace. The photo is from the catalog. I have a much shorter veil. They had beautiful tiaras but SHEESH - they were @ $200! Are they from Mars? Get real! That's 1/3rd of what my mom paid for the dress! She loved it on me and said with a nervous smile that she would also buy it if I wanted it. I assured her that we will both have fun looking around for the best discount on one.

I admit - the little girl in me has always wanted to be princess just for one day - so I want a tiara.

I've already found some on Amazon that are under $15! That's worth it for me to get a couple to try on, then maybe save for bellydancing. There's also the accessory stores at the malls.

Thanks so much! I love it!

Thanks, LadyV! I felt the same way - I'm 37 - I figured a skirt bigger than an a-line would look like I was trying too hard to look too young. Plus, I don't have to spend extra on a bustle because if its shorter train. I like your idea of a soft curl!

Thanks Pink!!!! I also love it because I don't have to buy anything extra for it - no bustles or crinolines for the skirt - more money for my tiara - lol!
