Wedding edition - Friday Fancies

Yippee its TGIF!! Thank you everyone who participated in my first series Thankful Thursday, I truly appreciate it! See you all next week and hope to have more people join.
Anyways it is Friday and thank goodness, it has been a good week overall having my husband back home is the best part. What are your Friday night plans? Going out in style or laying low? Hope you have a great time whatever you are doing. My Sean and I are having a date night, it is something I always look forward to and he suggested it when he was gone last week, it helps to have time to reconnect and hang out with my best friend and favorite man. 

I was giddy with glee when Allison announced what this week's Fridays Fancies would be because who doesn't love weddings, whether you are the bride, bridesmaid or a guest. No better reason to dress up and as the bride and the groom it is of course extra special for them! I am linking my look over to Friday Fancies
 over at Long Distance Loving.

I truly loved my dress from when I put it on about 11 months before our wedding, then 9 months later when my mom and mother-in-law came out to go dress shopping with me and then of course the day of! I was a typical bride at times questioning if I had purchased the right gown, was it me? was it going to fit? All those questions floated through my head and of course the day of, it was the THE gown for me!
I really wouldn't choose another look if I had to go back and redo the whole day, so this Friday Fancies was a casual backyard wedding look I selected. I loved the look of a wedding dress without a veil, I opted out of a veil. But this look I recreated features the top things I love about a bridal look, her dress, her hair, her shoes, her bouquet, her engagement and wedding rings. Then I have posted for you each of these categories that I had on my wedding day.

Here is my look for Friday Fancies.

Thank you for letting me share my recreated wedding look and what I actually wore.
 Hope you all have a terrific weekend and as the signature line is my email says just keep smiling!
