The Dress

I am heading back to my home state in just two days!! I am soo excited! As an added bonus, we got snow yesterday and the forecast for the days we are there calls for snow also!! After living with the cold, harsh winters for 22 years you would think I would be soo sick of snow but it's actually the opposite. Since moving to California I have a new appreciation for the cold weather. Don't get me wrong, I love the consistently mild weather of S.F. but truthfully, there is nothing Fall or Winter about this place. 

This coming weekend has a lot on the agenda in terms of wedding. I have been slacking quite a bit these past few weeks (ok, months) and now it is time to get serious about planning. 

On Friday I get to go with my mom and a friend and look for my dress! I am really hoping I will find one! (cross your fingers!). I already have a few I am in love with but unfortunately most of their price tags rule them out of my budget.  Here are just a few that I am in love with!

The last image will not load for some reason...Either way, it was an image from Martha Stewart weddings magazine showcasing a real wedding featuring the bride wearing a polka dot organza gown by Carolina Herrera. (I believe the 2004 collection). I can't find this dress anywhere! Have any of you seen it and/ or know which one I am talking about? 

A few other things that have caught my eye lately.

(photo credit: weddingbee) I love this birdcage veil with the flower.

I love the texture of this bouquet. I think I would go a little smaller but I am pretty sure I will be going with an all white bouquet and having my bridesmaids with green's, white's and maybe some pink.

I am off to pick up a prescription and hopefully our save the dates! Have a great rest of the week!

I love the first and second dress. I know exactly which Carolina dress you are talking about- I know it was insanely popular for awhile and almost impossible to find. A girl on the Knot had one made in a similar style. I suppose you could do that, though that would be hard with you living in CA and getting married in MI. Have SO much fun dress shopping- I loved it!!
