Bubbling With Joy: Donning the Dress

As I’ve mentioned in other blog entries, my wedding dress was definitely one of my favorite parts of this whole wedding adventure. I could not wait to wear it (and to finally show Mr. C!), so I was pretty excited when it was time to get dressed, because I finally got to wear the dress for longer than a fitting appointment!

We got the dress down off its hanger, and I stripped down to my undergarments (no photos of that, thankfully!). Mama C helped me put the dress on.

Once the dress was fully secure, I took a moment to check everything out.

But only a moment. Then I had to make sure no one (including me) was going to cry. No smudged makeup for anyone!
