wedding flashback: the dress

And finally to round out the wedding party attire {discussed {here} and {here}}...on to my favorite part, my dress.  My dress was a Melissa Sweet "Dora" gown.  I found the dress at a sample sale at a Santa Barbara bridal shop that was going out of business.  I liked the dress because it was a little different with the swiss dots and I loved the cut of the pleated top.

Here is the dress hanging before I got ready...

As I discussed earlier this week {here}, Mercedes Trump from Santa Barbara did my dress alterations.  She also made some removable straps out of the extra dress material for me to wear at the reception.  The straps were a great idea so I wouldn't have to worry about my dress while I was moving around during the reception or the first dance.
