Getting Ready, Part II

Gowns and hair and puppies, oh my!

I haven’t really talked about my hair yet.  I decided, since I was not a bride, to go with an updo, something sophisticated, but more Oscars than tiara-and-veil.  I’m also completely obnoxious about my hair not being on my face or my neck, so I spent a few months growing it out so that I made sure it would all get up and stay up!

I loved it.  Amber at Vis-a-Vis did a great job – I highly recommend her if you are in the Atlanta area.

While I dressed, I was accompanied by two of my besties, Marcella and Laura, the ever-awesome Jenna, my amazing sister, and yes, the most adorable pup in the world, Charlie.

Next we are on to lots of fun DIY projects and details – promise!

Oh, and the gown!  I forgot to give you details.  It is Lucia by Claire Pettibone.  Comfiest thing to wear ever and so easy to move in!  If anyone is interested, I will definitely be selling it – you can email me at {info at elizabeth anne designs} and we can chat.
