A Hard Decision For Jess

We found Jess' wedding dress this weekend.  It was a fun and long day searching for dresses, veils, and having her engagement dinner that evening.  After trying on many dresses, she decided on two - one of them was stunning with lace and jewels on the front part of the dress.  The veil she found went perfect with it.  The other one was a beautiful vintage looking dress with lace.  This one was like nothing we've ever seen before, very unique.  She found a veil that went just right with this dress also.  Her engagement dinner was that evening and it turned out very nice.  There were so many interesting side dishes, a couple fun games, and her bridesmaids and Nel made it such a special night for her.  So, here is the dress that Jess didn't choose.

Pretty, huh?  But the dress she did choose is even my opinion.  : )
Here's to Jess
finding just the right dress!
* Nel bought these mini champagnes
and chocolate to toast this memorable day!*

Good Morning Sheri,

What a stunning dress, but I know the "chosen," one is even more so.
Of course, Jess will be the most gorgeous bride ever and would be beautiful and lovely in any dress.
Such an exciting time in your lives, and I can tell by these photos that every detail, celebration and moment is given so much thought, cherished and done with love and class.
Thinking of you and wishing you a very joyful week.

Sheri, That dress is beautiful. I can only imagine how pretty her chosen gown will be. Your Nel, she is so good at thinking of the champagne and chocolates. I bet your day was awesome . I feel that you may have shed a tear or two sweet mommy. Blessings to all of you, xoxo, love, Susie

Dear Sheri,

What exciting times for your family and love the dress she did not chose, but know she will look absolutely gorgeous in the dress she will wear on the day. I adore vintage dresses and in lace.
Have a wonderful week

Hi Sheri, that dress is so pretty. Im sure another bride will wear it to her special day. But can't wait to see the dress Jess have chosen. Must be stunning. Congratulations to both of them.

Wishing you a wonderful week.


Patricia said...

Oh Sheri, this is soooooo exciting! Both dresses are beautiful - lace is wonderful for brides. A sweet idea to toast the day of choosing. My DIL to be is in the final stages of organising her dress for the wedding in Ireland later in the year. I am also hunting down fabric for my mother-of-groom outfit, and pinning lots of ideas on Pinterest :) xx

Jess would look great and Princessly in burlap if you ask me... so glad she doesn't have to wear it though.

Beautiful. I can guess that the one that was , "Yes to the Dress," had to perfect! I know she will be a beautiful bride. This will be sometimes stressful but so much fun! I love the chalkboard!

I'm sure she would look stunning in any dress, though! Such a wonderful time in her life and so much joy to share with loved ones. Chocolate and champagne is the perfect way to celebrate such a lovely occasion. So much to look forward to! Much love xo Karen

Doreen@househoneys said...

Your daughter could wear a potato sack and no doubt she would be the most beautiful bride ever, but happily she doesn't have to. Instead, she will walk down the aisle is a gorgeous antique dress as unique as she is. What fun you must have had Sheri! It's indeed a very special time :).
