So this weeks wedding planning is focused on The Dress and The Shoes. (I felt like those needed to be capitalized because of how much they are stressing me out and how much money I am spending on them.)
I plan to wear a very altered version of my mom’s dress. My grandma is a master seamstress so I am hoping that she will be able to alter it to look the way I want it to. If not then that is an issue for future Kate.
I have been scouring Pinterest for wedding dress ideas for months already. If I wanted something strapless or long sleeve with a plunging back I would be in luck but, that’s not quite my style. I want something with opaque long sleeves that is still light and flowy.
I’m not sure if that dress actually exists but a girl can dream right?
The other thing I am struggling with is the shoes. I don’t want to wear heels. Mostly because the ceremony and the reception are on grass so I don’t want to be sinking but I also get really cranky after wearing heels for a while.
I just want to wear Kate Spade X Keds from the bridal collection. My dress will be long enough to cover them so no one will even know. I know they’re not nearly as expensive as most shoes so I really want them but they seem to be really hard to find in store.
That has been this weeks stress and next week Chris and I are going to Bed, Bath & Beyond to work on registry stuff so wish me luck!
