Wedding dress reveal

Friday, October 27, 2017

It's been almost two weeks since my first wedding anniversary, so in case anyone stumbles across this blog and wants to know how the final dress looked, I suppose I should share!

With all the structure underneath, the dress stayed on nicely for dancing!

Finally, here's probably the best front-on picture of the bodice, taken during our thank-you speech:

Doesn't my husband look great? I had nothing to do with his clothing.
