Our Wedding: My outfit details

The Dress: Lazaro LZ3207
I had visited 10+ bridal boutiques and tried on over 30 gowns before I found my wedding dress. Nothing I tried on felt like "the one" until I walked into Marcella's La Boutique and saw this Lazaro gown on display. I so confidently knew this dress was the one I had been searching high and low for before I even tried it on, and once I did, the deal was sealed! I love the delicate eyelash lace sweetheart neckline on the sheer Alencon lace bodice. The platinum sash bejeweled with opals and Swavorski crystals added sparkle, and the fit of the dress was impeccable.

The Shoes: Jimmy Choo 'Isabel' champagne glitter pump
When I was looking for wedding shoes, I wanted luxurious yet comfortable shoes, which is sometimes an oxymoron. But that is what I found in these Jimmy Choo pumps. The champagne glitter fabric is shimmery for a subtle glamour and the low heel made me feel like I wasn't wearing heels at all.

The Accessories: diamond earrings and handmade veil
My parents gifted me these stunningly intricate diamond earrings on my wedding day. Since my dress had a bejeweled sash, I wanted to keep the rest of the accessories minimal, and these earrings complemented the look without overdoing it. I wear these earrings on special occasions and whenever I see them, I always think of my parents' generous love throughout my whole life. I will cherish them forever.

I took a veil-making class and actually made my own veil! I just wanted a simple, classic chapel veil and it turned out exactly how I imagined and was so much more economical as well as sentimental.

  2. Carolyn, I saw your beautiful dress in your previous posts and fell in love. I am actually looking for something very similar to that style, and from what it seems, we are about the same size! Ah, it is simply beautiful. I love your heels too, that's exactly what I'm looking for - luxurious, yet comfy. Maybe I'll just have to buy your whole wedding look....

  14. WOW CAROLYN!!! You looked amazing and every as beautiful!!! so happy for you, many many congrats to you!!

    That dress is really really gorgeous, you sure you're selling it!?!?!? lol....the entire silhouette of the dress is just lovely and i like how the ribbon trails off behind you. I also like the lace detailing on the top along with the opal and Swarovski crystal jeweled platinum silk ribbon belt on the waist, it defines your waist beautifully:) And i like the chapel train and how it's just right in length and not too dramatic. As you can tell, i practically love and like everything about your dress,lol

    Those diamond floral earrings from your parants are so elegant looking and time less:) It's definitely will hold sentimental value.
