What I Wore: On Our Wedding Day

Well it is my hubby and I's 5th year anniversary this weekend! 
I can't believe it, time flies...

When I saw the Wedding: What I Wore post over at One Dog Woof, I thought I don't do 'what I wore' posts, but I liked her idea.  Especially when my anniversary was coming up. So here it is my What I Wore: On Our Wedding Day!

Our wedding was neither extravagant or expensive compared to most out there. But to me and the hubby it was perfect and just what we had wanted.

I wore an Alfred Angelo strapless a-line ivory dress (Here it is online).  
Which I bought off of the rack and it didn't need alterations! I love me a good deal!


There is beautiful bead work mostly on the chest and going down from the waist . It has a yellow/gold sash across the waist and a small jeweled broach in the middle. 

It has a beautiful lace overlay (my favorite part) and it continues at the bottom of the dress to make a small train.

My bouquet was made up of roses, Gerber daisies, lilies,  chrysanthemums and normal daisies. The colors of the wedding were pink, green, and white.

My mom made all three flower girl dresses and my sisters Maid of Honor dress. 
We only had one attendant each so she was my one and only bridesmaid.

We had three nieces around the same age so we didn't want to have to pick and choose, so all three were included.

As for the guys, Hubby had a yellow/gold vest and tie to match my sash and I made our best man wear pink...sorry Jordy! He took it like a trooper, haha.

Some other details:

My hair was done by a local hair dresser and wasn't anything to fancy. I did my own make-up, but I cried a lot (emotional wreck over here!) so by the time we did the photoshoot I basically had none left, ha.

As for the traditional:
Something Old - My moms necklace from when her and dad were married
Something New- my shoes, simple gold sandals from Le Chateau
Something Borrowed - Was supposed to be my friends headpiece, but was never used.
Something Blue - My garter.

Happy 5th Anniversary honey!! Here's to many more fun filled years spent together!
Love You Tons!

On another marriage related note...
