Wedding Recap {The Outfit}

Whelp, today is my two month anniversary! I cannot believe how quickly these first months of marriage have flown by. Jason and I are having the best time and are proud to still be happily married two months later {hey, that's more than a lot of people can say!}

I figure my anniversary is as good of time as any to start the WEDDING RECAP POSTS! Wahoo!!! 

All brides-to-be dream about what they will wear on their wedding day. The bride is the center point of the whole wedding and must look perfect! The perfect dress, the perfect shoes, a gorgeous veil and the most perfect jewelry to tie the whole look together. A look that will knock her groom off his feet.

For as indecisive as I am, I was shocked at how easily my wedding day look came together. My wedding dress was the third I tried on, all the jewelry came together without a second thought and the shoes....well, you all know about the shoes. 

My dress was a white, trumpet shape, embroidered Swiss lace design by Jasmine Couture. 

I wore black sequined peep toe pumps by Jimmy Choo. 

One of my Bridesmaids made me these adorable "Something Blue" undies with my new name and wedding date on them. 

In my hair I wore three acrylic flower clips adorned with pearls and gems.

I don't typically wear a ton of jewelry, but I couldn't resist this giant cuff bracelet to bring a bit of bling to the ensemble. 

My mom was sweet enough to let me borrow her GORGEOUS diamond drop earrings, the same ones she wore on her wedding day. 

You all know I couldn't go down that aisle without some sort of Maroon and Gold to honor my University of Minnesota Golden Gophers, this garter was the perfect way to show my school pride and honor our engagement. 

I originally wasn't even sure I wanted to wear a veil, but when they put this cathedral length, white veil with tiny gems spread around to add the perfect amount of shimmer on me....I was sold.

All the details and one of my favorite wedding day photos.
