I completely fell in love with my dress in the store and I knew I didn't want to look any longer. The dress was affordable and exactly what I pictured myself in. My bridesmaids and I went back while they were having a sale and found the flower girl's dress for VERY cheap. I had to purchase a different color sash and Shaely Bugs but it was simple. We also purchased the Bridesmaid dresses from The Bridal Shoppe. We found the dress in-store but didn't like the color. We picked out the colors we liked and ordered them. The dresses weren't exactly what we pictured but with some alterations they came together and we couldn't have been happier with them.
I loved the idea of having a flower in my hair, but my sister convinced me not to do a real one for fear I would be the one bride to have the luck of a bee being attracted to it! So, I found this beautiful fake vintage gardenia hair clip on this website. It worked beautifully and I still wear it occasionally.
