I fell in love with this dress before I ever went dress shopping. I still love it, and would have loved to buy it, but I just couldn't quite bring myself to pay for something without being able to try it on first to see how it looked on me. But oh, I think it's fabulous!
We might not be having a big cake, but that doesn't stop me from drooling over beauties like these! I love buttercream so much more than fondant - how beautiful is that cake on the left??
Oh, how I wanted letterpressed invitations! And oh, how they were not even a little bit in the budget. But they're so beautiful. All of you lucky people with letterpressed invitations, just know how much I swoon over them!
If we were getting married in June, I would definitely have had a giant fluffy bouquet teeming with peonies. I LOVE peonies, and not being able to have those flowers is one of the few reasons why I'm sad we're having a winter wedding. Luckily, all of the other positives definitely outweigh the fact that I can't have a certain type of flower in my bouquet!
Seeing pictures like this makes me a little bit sad for things we won't have, but I love all of the elements that will make our wedding unique. But it's still fun to think about what could have been...
