First of all, I had a hot date on Friday... with my dress! After tying on dresses last spring, it took 6 months for my gown to be created and shipped to the Stanley Korshak Bridal Salon. I must say, I was UBER nervous to go try it on! Since the sample I tried on was larger than my normal size, I wasn't sure how it was going to look "Lulu-sized."
I've had to make the tough decision not to post a photo of it on the blog, because a) I want to leave a few surprises for my real-life friend readers out there who will be attending the wedding (hi, everyone!), and b) Mr. Wonderful and I have decided not to see each other before the wedding. I know he stops by the blog from time to time, so posting a picture here is just a disaster waiting to happen!
I've saved the best for last by revealing the wedding shoes. Oh, ladies. These SHOES! You know that I've had serious Louboutin lust over the past year, but with nary a penny to save in order to quench the yearning. I have a strict 4"+ heel rule, so many darling pink shoes have been cast aside in my hunt. That is, until the goddesses at Stanley Korshak presented me with a bridal coupon. In a fit of insanity, Mama Martini ran over to their shoe salon, and purchased the MOST. PERFECT. SHOES. EVER.
I'd like to introduce you to the only pair of shoes I'll be wearing for the rest of my life:
I've always fantasized about getting a killer investment wedding day shoe, which I will subsequently wear on each wedding anniversary date night thereafter. These shoes are beyond my wildest fantasies and expectations! Not only are they the *perfect* heel height and shade of pink, but they are a dead match to my *favorite* purse of all time. I avoided shopping my ENTIRE semester abroad (no small feat when living only 45 minutes outside of London), just to save up my money for that 1 special thing... and here she is, the Louis Vuitton Reade PM in Framboise Vernis I purchased in Venice:
It's a match made in Lulu Heaven, girls. I feel like the luckiest little lady in the world!
After knocking these details out of the park, it's really starting to dawn on me... I'm getting married in less than 3 months!
Stay tuned to more wedding details as they unfold!
