The first look was the part of the day that I was most looking forward to, but in reality, it ended up just being a quick moment for the two of us to reconnect for the day.
I tried to stay calm.
But in reality I was trying not to burst at the seams:
I couldn’t believe I was seeing Mr. Peep dressed up as a groom:
Doesn’t he look handsome?
And Mr. Peep was overwhelmed that I was dressed up to be his bride:
He was totally shocked by the dress (see, I can keep secrets!!).
After a quick spin:
And I got all teary eyed, too:
At that point, I realized that my spin had gotten dirt all over my train, so we were off to find the bridal party to bustle it up:
Unfortunately, bustling my dress was quite the task.
Again, it was my Bridal Entourage to the rescue.
Whatever you do, make sure that someone is really paying attention when you go to the bridal salon to learn how to bustle your dress.
While our first look was memorable, there were so many other more memorable parts of the day.
So, I ask you: what part of the day are you most looking forward to? And who are you appointing to bustle your dress??
Up next, we skip the pictures of us, and go straight to the bridal party and family pics… in other words, here comes a lot of portrait pictures.
