What I wore on my wedding day.

_whatiwore_intro_3Besides my finding my Watters wedding gown, I spent a lot of time pre-wedding finding the perfect shoes, accessories, jewelry, lipstick, etc. It seems over-the-top but when I was deciding on these things, I kept thinking how this is one of the biggest days of my life and I just wanted it to be perfect. Pulling together my "look" for my wedding day was a long thought-out process and in the end, I'm so happy with how I looked and felt that I had to share the details. It helps that the Manchiks captured every little detail! whatiwore_dressI tried on about 40 dresses and knew this was the one when I put it on. The layers made me feel like I was floating down the aisle. 

whatiwore_hairI didn't want a veil but I wanted something simple and elegant in my hair, the pearls went well with the details in my dress.

whatiwore_lipSplurging on this lip stain and gloss was worth the money. It lasted all day, looked natural and wasn't a lot of maintenance.

whatiwore_braceletMy sister gave me this Kate Spade bangle the night before the wedding. I love it and it's a gift I can wear every day! 

whatiwore_earringsThese are the pearl earrings Chris gave me on my 22nd birthday. They are my favorite earrings so I had to wear them on my wedding day. 

whatiwore_purseI got lucky the last time I went to the Alameda Antique Fair when I found these vintage gems. The hanky caught my tears and the beaded clutch was the perfect size for my phone and lip gloss.

whatiwore_necklaceThis was a very special present from my parents, given to me at my bridal shower. It's so unique and went perfectly with the color scheme.

whatiwore_shoes_1The Kate Spade shoes were a gift from Chris and I wanted some comfortable but cute shoes for the reception and dancing. The Rowen shoes are wedges and are super comfortable. I lasted all day and night in those babies!
