Last night I went to my second dress fitting and met my bridal bling in person for the first time. It’s pretty phenomenal! Standing around in the dressing room with my gown all fitted got me thinking about what I will look like as a bride. The dress is pretty spectacular on its own, but the look won’t be complete without hair and makeup.
Now, I won’t have any idea what my bridal hairdo(s) will look like on the wedding day, because I’m leaving that entirely up to my friend, J, who is a hair genius. J and I went to high school together, and she’s been cutting and styling my hair for years. But I don’t have a trusted makeup artist, so I knew for makeup I would have to have a trial.
I did a lot of online research and looked at many examples. While watching the video for my friend’s wedding, I was blown away by how gorgeous her makeup looked.

My shoes are here! For those that don’t remember, I was having some difficulty deciding what shoes I would wear. I came across the company Design Your Pedestal on Facebook (which has since revamped their company brand). They are officially “Ellie Wren Custom Wedding Shoes.”
I was in constant contact with two very nice ladies, Katie & Kerry, who kept me informed and even sent me email updates. The entire process took about one month from order to delivery.
