    My Nontraditional Wedding Dress

    Advertisements
    Update from this thread...

    After worrying and stressing that the dress wouldn't come, or it wouldn't be well made, or it wouldn't be the correct size, I have an update.



    I don't have the greatest pictures and the lighting is awful. But it's actually pretty nice. Not exactly as pictured but I had such low expectations the longer I waited for it to arrive that I was happily surprised it arrived, was well made, and was the correct size.



    It's navy, basically the same shade as the Air Force dress blues.



    Here are my current shoes to choose from. This is all I have here for now. The lacy ones are flats. I actually also have black patent flats. Forgot about those since I only wear them with my blues.



    Hopefully the pictures aren't huge but I'm currently too lazy to fix if they are.

    Just two weeks to go.

    Are you sure it's not gold?

    I would do the black pumps. I don't think flats are quite right for the dress, and I wouldn't try to match the navy. The sash is black, right?

    What kind of wedding are you having? Do you have attendants? Are their any other wedding colors? What did you decide on for your DF?

    My sister has a bouquet of flowers she used in a friend's wedding. They're fake calla lillies. Might use it if I don't come up with something else. Trying not to spend too much and I work 0700 to 1700 so when I'm done for the day, I don't want to do anything else. And weekends are hit or miss in regards to being productive.

    Har har... But in all seriousness, gold wouldn't work with my complexion so I'm glad it's blue.. The sash is also navy but because it's a different material, the light hits it differently.

    It's a backyard wedding. Dinner after and beach a couple blocks away where we will be watching fireworks from later in the evening. Probably will change though. I didn't set other colors. It's still flexible at this point for that. But DF actually found a suit that looks amazing on him that is a dark grey (but not quite charcoal grey), a navy blue tie (he compared it to his dress blues as well), and likely (if he hasn't already purchased it) a white shirt.

    My next endeavor is deciding on decorations. Keeping it simple. But I originally thought of twinkle lights or candles, something hanging from the large tree in the center of the backyard. But it's going to be at 5:30pm. So Those two options are less feasible.

    It'll be small, simple. No attendants. Just us, the officiant, and a few family members standing. Short and sweet.

    I'll have to try them all with the dress and get a better idea. I'm not completely apposed to new shoes but I don't want a one time wear pair. I have plenty of those back home.
