Hello, wonderful hive! Today is the big day! I am sitting in our hotel suite with all of my lovely ladies waiting to get our hair and makeup done. MOH L has some chill music playing to get us up and ready. Mr. Coach already sent me a text message this morning to assure me he wasn’t getting cold feet, so we are good to go.
As soon as Mr. Wallaby and I got engaged, I started spending a lot of time on Pinterest. You could call it an obsession. I hadn’t discovered wedding blogs yet, so I was just browsing around the wedding boards on Pinterest, happily pinning anything that caught my eye.
I didn’t pay too much attention to dresses on Pinterest at first. I was more interested in colors, themes—more general wedding concepts. But then one day I saw a pin of the most beautiful lace dress I had ever seen (and still, I don’t think I’ve seen anything prettier): Claire Pettibone’s Chantilly lace dress.
After some Google sleuthing, I identified the dress…and the price. Wowza. That dress is beautiful, but I definitely couldn’t afford to buy it new. I began to troll used wedding dress websites in search of a Chantilly dress in my size. I never found it in my size, although I did find one on preownedweddingdresses.com that was one size too big that could probably have been altered to my size.
