Wedding Recap-My Bridals

So I already posted about where I got my wedding dresses and accessories here but I never really did a full post about my awesome bridals that I won in a charity auction!

Chelsea from Southern Fried Paper threw an event for a friend of hers with a small child who had medical needs-

She had vendors that she knew in the wedding business offer up items that we could bid on in a silent auction- I just happened to be the winning bidder for a lovely package by

photographers Ben Q Photography

Styling and Design by Birds of a Feather

Hair and Makeup by Kendra Gregory

Wedding Cake by Sugar Bee Sweets

Floral Design by Bows and Arrows

They all did such a great job and I was even featured in a Style Me Pretty post! And I got Photo of the Week from Brides of North Texas magazine!

So I have to say that these vendors were AWESOME to work with and did such a good job and I felt kind of like a model which was super fun!

This was my J. Mendel dress that I bought on Ebay for $200 and had altered (moving the piece from the front to off the shoulder)

And this was my Atelier Aimee dress that I bought on preownedweddingdresses.com and altered the neckline a bit by adding more chiffon (for more “coverage”)

They did such an incredible job styling! Antique furniture, birdcage, crab apples (already provided by the trees!) and beautiful floating book art~

Loved the bouquet- it had so many soft and amazing smelling flowers/herbs in it!

I had told the stylists that I was looking for kind of a Hunger games/medieval/victorian look

so how they actually came up with this awesome look is beyond me since my directions were totally weird/crazy!

This dress was so comfortable it was practically like wearing pajamas :)

My veil came for free with my Atelier Aimee dress and I definitely loved wearing it- It’s so fun being a bride! Now I just get to relive the moment through blog posts :)

Cute porch swing- I want one of these some day!

Haha one of my hunger game poses :)

These shoes were pretty tall and pretty uncomfortable- I would say one tip for your wedding day…wear comfortable shoes at the ceremony
