It was time to put on my dress. (The dress in the background here is my mom's.)
Note: my hips are too large to put my dress on by stepping into it. Hmm. This became a serious issue when it came to the day of the wedding. Hair and makeup were already done. How to get into a giant white dress without messing everything up?
Answer? Have at least seven bridesmaids ready to help. And practice holding your breath. I seriously thought I might suffocate at one point. I love this photo of my "big" sister standing on a stool to help me get into my dress!
A group effort!
And we're in!
Adjust. Adjust. Adjust.
Finishing touches by my sister...
And voila! Ladies and gentlement, we have a BRIDE!!!
My friend/bridesmaid Katie approves...(isn't she the cutest?)
And it looks like Mom approves too! (How beautiful is she??? I love this photo!)
Trying to hold back the tears so I don't mess up the make up! Not an easy task when my soon-to-be sister-in-law had started the water works! I love this girl!!
