Swiss Dots and Tulle

When I first went wedding dress shopping, I was pretty sure I wanted a dress with swiss dots. I ended up going with something much more elegant, but I did pick a going-away dress with swiss dots and tulle. 

I loved wearing this dress on my wedding day during the last dance of the reception, while tearfully hugging dear friends and family goodbye (for some reason that was the part of the day that made me cry!), and finally getting in the car and departing for our new life together as husband and wife.  

In fact, I loved that dress and the beautiful memories tied to it I decided to give in another spin on a beautiful summer evening when we went to see The Lion King in downtown Portland. 

I'm a big bargain shopper, and every part of this outfit was a steal. The dress was from TJ Maxx, shoes from Payless, wallet from Marshalls, and jewelry from Charlotte Russe. 
 The Lion King was absolutely amazing! If you ever get the opportunity to see it, DO! I had chills for the first five minutes straight, and the music and dancing is fantastic. I am so glad I married someone who loves seeing plays, too!
And just for the heck of it, here's a photo of my actual wedding dress. Maybe I'll blog about our wedding near our third anniversary! Who am I kidding, I'm still trying to finish scrapbooking the reception... this photo will have to do for now :)


  1. Oh I love Swiss dots! What a pretty dress. And such a wonderful reason to wear it again to go to a musical! It sounds like a fabulous date and you are such a handsome couple! Gorgeous wedding dress, too. If it makes you feel any better, I just got my wedding album done and I have been married for 6 1/2 years! Actually, I have a post coming soon about a dear friend who made my photo book for me! I sent her 100's upon 100's of photos and she did all the work!
