Wedding Week!!! God is in the details!




There was the surprise shower thrown for me at my sorority house where my Mom made a guest appearance! (I cannot scan the pics! Sorry!)

There was the English Tea that my maid of honor and sisters gave me for my home town shower, where everyone wore hats and ate fabulous scones by the pool.



Everything leading up to the wedding was so fabulous, I really had fun.


And when choosing my wedding dress, I made it into a little party! I had a ballot made up where each dress was named after a movie. We drank Veuve Clicquot as I modeled each dress for the girls. I of course had final say, but most people agreed with my choice!

Here's what it said!

Liz’s Wedding Dress Ballot
Cast your votes, Ladies…For the dress of the century!


Sense & Sensibility-
Ripped from the pages of Vogue, this cream colored gown with a satin-banded bodice is elegant and simple.

Portrait of a Lady-
Reeling with romance, this dress with its sweetheart neckline, and floral bustle sends you back in time.

Moulin Rouge-
Look out Nicole, this gauzy get up lends itself to the theatre with its dramatic, ruffled train.

Gone with the Wind-
Brett Butler will surely faint when he sees this corseted creation. The peek-a-boo skirt will leave him breathless. Fiddle-de-dee.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
-Diamond straps, a sexy cleavage, this dress comes with a defibrillator for the grandparents.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s
-A classic. With a satin band waist, and a vine-beaded bodice, how could you go wrong? Don’t forget the surprise detail in the back!

Note: Bride reserves the right to choose a dress that:
a. Only she likes
b. Everyone else hates or
c. Isn’t even on the ballot!


Ha!

I chose Moulin Rouge!


It was my dream wedding and I loved every second of it!!!
