Anniversary Week: The Dress

I loved my dress! It didn't take me long to find it either. I knew exactly what I wanted. A sheath style dress with a headband veil. I tried on several just to humor the saleslady but the second I tried this on I knew it was the one. I wasn't crazy about the detachable cathedral length train though. But looking back, I'm glad my mother made me wear it I decided to wear it. Very Princess Diana-like, don't you think? And if there's one day when you're allowed to be a princess it's your wedding day.

Remember the Friends episode where Monica, Phoebe and Rachel are all lounging around in wedding dresses? Yeah. I'd like to do that. Except I can't fit into mine anymore. Must've been all those little cocktail smokies I ate at the reception.

  1. I love the photo! A masterpiece in the museum. That is really great. You looked beautiful.

  2. What a beautiful picture of you on your wedding day! I too wish I could fit into mine, but hopefully one of these days having 2 girls one will want to wear my dress.

  10. I totally and completely loved watching this at work today. I have most episodes memorized, and this one is a fave. I love the way Rachel says "Joshua" at the end. Josh-ooh-ah. Too funny!
