Wedding Details – The Dress and Veil


Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope your week is going swimmingly! For me, it feels a lot later then Wednesday. Wishing it was Friday I guess. Or maybe it’s the fact that I FINALLY caught the cold that everyone has had except me. There goes my dream of thinking I was immune to it…boo! 

I had kind of gotten off the wedding post train for awhile. With seasonal activities happening and work being crazy, I felt like I had other things on my mind to write about.  But, I do want to get the wedding posts finished by our first anniversary. And I really want to remember every detail.

One of the biggest details of a girls wedding day is her dress. It’s one of the most important articles of clothing she will ever wear in her life. You might remember how I was a little under enthused about picking out a dress. But all that changed when I finally found MY dress. It was a big moment and I never picture myself as “one of those girls” who has a moment. But I did. And I still smile about the experience to this day.

I also had a hard time deciding whether or not to wear a veil. Ultimately, it was an article that said, “you only have the chance to wear a veil once in your lifetime.”

That struck a cord with me and I was thinking that I may regret never wearing one. I ended up finding the PERFECT veil 1 MONTH before the wedding! I literally picked it up 2 days prior. It was cutting it pretty close.

My veil was chapel length and edged with Chantilly lace. 



My dress was by Romona Keveza. It was a beautiful silk gown and fit me like a glove. It had ZERO embroidery or beading. What made it special was the way the fabric laid. Very me. More on the simple side, not too much embellishment.





I was SO happy with my wedding attire choices. I think Ryan was very pleased as well! I am happy that I didn’t go with a dress that was too “trendy”. It was a simple and elegant dress that made me feel not only beautiful but really like a “bride”.

Happy Wednesday!



  1. Love the veil! Absolutely gorgeous! I wasn't going to wear one, but I got bullied into it by my mom and MIL. Turns out they were right. Glad I did it!

  2. your dress is beautiful and very elegant!

  3. So pretty! I loved your wedding dress!
