Lauren: Wedding Dress Fitting

Today’s post is in honor of some pretty amazing women, and one of them in particular – Lauren.  In fact, these are some of the most incredible women I know.  They weren’t aware that I was going to be stealing these shots, either, so you have to give them credit for being such good sports about it (we women like to be ready for photos, am I right girls?).  Thank you so much, ladies.  I hope you’ve forgiven me for surprising you.

New voice on the blog, by the way.  This is Wendy.  Don’t worry, you’ll have J.P. back soon enough presenting you with photos of Lauren (the same beautiful girl you’ll see below) posing in front of an F-16.  You know, the kind of run-of-the-mill bridal shots you see all the time.  Seriously – an F-16!  Yes, we had fun that day.

These shots are special because, well, they’re girl time shots.  So scroll on down to take a peek into the awesomeness that is the wedding dress fitting experience.

That’s Lauren.  She’s ready to do this thing.  Isn’t she glowing?

We weren’t about to let Lauren try on her perfected bridal gown without having a look ourselves, so Brandi, Natalie, Ashley and I came along for the adventure.  Even though the four of us had already walked down the aisle, we couldn’t help but peruse the colorful bridesmaids’ dresses and delicate white veils.



Finally, Lauren emerged from the dressing room in a gorgeous, silky gown that made me think of something Marilyn Monroe might wear.  And there was even more glowing!

The wonderfully helpful and sweet women at David’s Bridal helped us understand the workings of Lauren’s bustle.

Do the bustle, Ashley!

That part took a while.

Natalie does the bustle!

The bustle! The bustle!

Lauren didn’t seem to mind.

After that, she tried on her air force garter (check back for a close-up of this baby – it so, so rocks!)…

…and we all enjoyed some just-us-girls conversation with the bride-to-be.

Group shot?  Why not?

All the girls

Wedding dresses are so much fun!  Writing this post makes me want to go put mine on again and just laze around in it.

Thanks for stickin’ with the post.  Check back to see a bride wearing combat boots and standing next to a very impressive-looking airplane.
