I’m so happy to finally share some wedding photos with you all! We have so many amazing pictures, thanks to our photographer, Niki Marie, so I’m breaking this up into a few posts. Today I’m sharing our getting ready experience.

Some notes about the dresses (because I’ve already gotten many questions!): I found the bridesmaid dresses online at TJ Maxx.com…. they were an incredible deal and I can’t believe how lucky we got finding them. That particular style is no longer available for purchase, but you can rent it at Rent The Runway (f you don’t have an invite, shoot me an email!).

As you can see, my gown looks very different than the original. I had it altered at Gabi’s Perfect Fit Bridal. I would recommend her 100 times and absolutely loved the outcome of my gown.

I should also note that two different people did my hair (the first round fell out- I had a blow out that morning that made it a bit too silky) so I linked them both under myself and the bridesmaids. Lastly- Jordyn from Detroit Glam did my makeup (she did my sister’s wedding, too). I can’t get enough of her and highly recommend her. I loved my makeup and it was the one thing that didn’t change throughout the night!

I ended-up having a pink and gold theme, which became very obvious when viewing my flowers and accessories… I don’t hate it! I started accumulating items wayyy in advance. You can never do this too early, because when wedding season approaches, everything is out of stock. My dress, bridesmaid dresses, shoes, and many little accessories were all found 9-12months in advance. This is my one suggestion to keep you from stressing about little details!

I hope you enjoyed part one and I look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Estoy súper contenta de compartir estas fotos de nuestra boda con ustedes. Hay millones de fotos lindas gracias al fotógrafo gracias a Niki Marie Photography, entonces se las voy a compartir n varias entradas. Hoy empiezo con el proceso de maquillar y vestirnos.

Sobre los vestido: Muchas de ustedes ya me han preguntado sobre los vestidos de mis damas. Ya no están disponibles para comprar (compré los míos en TJ Maxx.com) pero se puede alquilarlos en RTR. Creo que el cinturón fue el accesorio perfecto para este vestido y no costó mucho tampoco.

Sé que me vestido no aparece como la foto en el sitio web, y es porque cambié mucho de las mangas y la silueta. Para las mujeres en Michigan- Gabi es genial y la recomiendo para cualquier cosa en relación a su vestido. 

También debo decir que dos personas hicieron mi pelo. La primera vez, mi pelo no quedó muy bien. Pero la segunda vez, con Natalie, si tenía volumen como quería y rulos. Jordyn de Detroit Glam hizo mi maquillaje y ella es también genial. Sus habilidades de hacer maquillaje es impresionante.

Al mirar mis fotos, noté que tenía un amore con la combinación de rosado y oro jaja. Pero me encanta… y espero que les gusten las fotos. ¡Más vendrá!
