Spilled it everywhere ^
It may be tricky to tell from the way I edited these photos, but my dress is blush pink. It’s been my favorite color since birth (hence the word in my blog name “blush”). I love it so much, I ended up walking down the aisle in a blush wedding dress (my blog post from remembering our wedding is here). I remember the day I knew that was my wedding dress…! I was working at Bianka Bridal and saw dresses in the store, in magazines, and on Instagram constantly. Every dress was stunning… but one day on Insta I saw the dress by Hayley Paige on Instagram and I fell in love. However, I wasn’t engaged at the time. I soon forgot about the dress and then a few weeks later Nick proposed in mid December.
A couple days later my boss texted me and said the dress I loved from Instagram was now a part of the inventory at Bianka Bridal. The day after Christmas, my mom and sister and I drove up to Grand Rapids for my bridal appointment. The owner of Bianka Bridal helped me pick out about 5 – 8 dresses to try on and she said she’d save that one I saw on Instagram for last so at this point, I hadn’t even seen it in real life yet. I tried on dresses in every shape and liked some but didn’t LOVE them.
Finally she brought out the dress and my jaw hit the floor. I had to try it on right away and as soon as I walked out of the dressing room in the dress I knew that was it. We have pictures of me like gasping at the dress as I’m wearing it…lol. And so my love affair with blush dresses continues. I think I’ll always feel the prettiest and most confident in dresses. I’ve never not had a fun time while wearing a dress… Someday maybe when I’m buried in all my kids and drenched in juice stains and milk leakage, I’ll probably just want to wear lulu leggings. But for now, I am going to soak up every moment of wearing ASOS dresses.
