I never wanted a dress with intricate detailing or a ball gown skirtâ€¦I have always been drawn to simple and clean dresses. Unlike most brides who usually take their moms and bridesmaids to pick out a dress, I went to Priscilla of Boston in Dallas on my own during my lunch break. I have always been a fan of Melissa Sweetâ€™s â€œLiaâ€ gown so I knew that was going to be the dress I would wear on my wedding day. It was the first dress I tried on and I knew that was it! The only problem was that the dress was ay outside our budget. After talking with the amazing consultants at PoB about my love for the dress but my lack of funds needed to purchase the dress, they were able to give me a discount on the dress that I could not refuse.
I wanted my bridesmaids to be able to wear their dress again so I thought a black cocktail dress from J. Crew would be perfect. I gave my bridesmaids 2 different styles to choose from, but coincidentally all 6 bridesmaids chose the same dress.
David chose to wear a black tux with a white vest and white tie. The groomsmen wore a black tux with black vest and a black and charcoal gray stripe tie from Nordstrom.
