The dress is off-white (champagne?) with a lace overlay and lots of pretty beading. It has a rather short train (chapel length? I forget the terminology) and the bottom was puffy but not too princess-y. My veil was actually my "something borrowed", as my friend Kristina, who'd gotten married earlier that year, lent it to me!
I absolutely LOVE how the light shined (shown? Where has my English gone?) through all the lace of the dress and veil and made it look so translucent and irridescent. These pictures of me in profile are my favorite.
In the next picture you can see the bottom of the dress better. The beading became less and less as you got towards the bottom...
Here you can see the back of the dress. It was scooped, but not terribly low.
And here you can see the front/top with the beading. The bad part about the beads/lace was that it made it so uncomfortable to have your naked arms down by your sides!! Scratchy!
Don't worry, I could go on for pages, but I'll spare you that. Check out the anniversary post (link above) if you need more of Erika in Her Wedding Dress. I've no shortage of pictures. :)
Happy Weekend! I'm going camping with Matt and my family and we'll be back in business on Tuesday!
