I "borrowed" it from the shop for the weekend so I could take it to Hilton Head and try it on for my mom. I say borrowed because I definitely plan on taking it back when we get home on Sunday so it won't be in the house...R has already been asking about it and I don't want him to sneak a peek when I'm not at home one day.
The good news is that it fits perfectly, just like the sample did, and I will just need to have it hemmed (and maybe a little added padding sewn in up top for some extra oomph). I'm what the seamstress calls a "cheap date". I am just so relieved that I won't have to go on some major diet or workout kick to fit in it!
Sorry, but no pics of this one...it will just have to be a surprise on the wedding day!

I love the look of these dahlias

It was kind of funny to see the people that R was friends with in high school and I also tried to figure out who each person was back then...the cheerleaders, the prom queen, etc. The DJ did a great job playing throwbacks from the '90s and everyone had a great time. I am very curious to see what the plans are for my class and can't wait to catch up with old friends!

Now, it is gorgeous on its own, but what makes it even better is that the paisley design matches the papers we are going to use for our invitations...
this is the Serpentine Regalia patterned paper and Wicked paper from Envelopments
In the meantime, I have been looking at invitations to use and out of this have developed a whole new color scheme just for the rehearsal (not that I don't still love my green and brown, but I thought something new would be fun). I am totally obsessed with the color coral right now, and since it's a beachy restaurant (called Aqua) I want to use coral and aqua invites. Here is one I've found that I absolutely love:
I think we could do a lot with this theme and it fulfills my wish of having another color palette to play with without having to have a whole other wedding!

And the same black tux with green vest and tie for the dads.
That way all of our colors are covered and no one is too matchy-matchy.
BTW-the colors from the website are off, so don't let this be your only judge of how it would look.
