Guess we should chat about attire…
In case you are wondering, I am wearing a dress and Sweetie Scone is going for a pantsuit. Let’s talk about my dress inspiration.
My mom used to make custom wedding dresses, and she made/designed a dress for one of my sisters.
Here is a sample of her work:

We kicked off wedding planning with the idea that she would be making my duds. So I started to check out inspiration. These were a few of my absolute favorites!
Basically I was looking for an A-line dress with straps made out of silk, cotton, or linen for breathability in the Midwestern summer. I am not a petite little butterfly and my “girls” don’t do strapless well. (I become a cranky monster.) So with that info we tracked down bridal salons that might have these beauties to try them on and make sure the styles looked good on my body…
