Wedding Wednesdays

Let’s talk about the dress.

Style: "Porcelain pastel"I’m excited and not excited to go shopping for this. Is that normal? I’m afraid nothing is going to fit. And I’m afraid I’m not going to find anything I like. All the dresses I’ve been in love with over the years have been discontinued. First, my long time dress love, the Sagrera from Pronovias was discontinued.
