Outfit Post // My Wedding Dress

 Hey y'all!  Yesterday, Jesse and I, celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary!  It doesn't seem like we've already been married that long at all.  The weather is so gorgeous and exciting and it finally feels like spring.  Just like it was on our wedding day two years ago.  I decided to show y'all in this post, my wedding dress.  Dressing modestly and appropriately is something that I am very passionate about and I feel can be done prettily on all occasions, even on your wedding day.

It can be very difficult to find wedding gowns that don't cost a fortune, and even harder to find a modest one.  I actually found my dress at, don't laugh, a thrift store.  It costed a grand whopping total of $13!!!  My mother and I had bought it long before Jesse and I were ever pursuing a relationship with each other, just because it fit perfectly and was so pretty.  Little did I know that I would be wearing it in my wedding the very next spring.
 The dress is an antique that was in great condition.  We did have
mended a bit on some of the lace pieces because of its age, and turned out splendidly.
 I loved how incredibly comfortable the dress was and how well made it was too.
The lace is so intricately delicate and the sleeves were very pretty.
Also the material was very lightweight and breathable for an outdoor spring wedding.
  
 The bridesmaid dresses were all handmade by friends and the flower girl dresses were bought at a local children's store, but were altered a little.


Everything turned out so lovely!
