Sneak Peek of my Wedding Dress!


Okay, so I kind of tricked you guys with the title of this blog post...I'm sorry ;)  But keep reading and I promise you won't be disappointed.  I've been absolutely flooded with questions about my wedding dress, have I bought it yet, when will I show you guys, what is it like, what colour, and so on.  And while I definitely believe that some things are meant to be kept private (until after the wedding day that is!) I also feel bad so I wanted to give those of you who asked a little sneak preview of some of the wedding attire.  

I am actually wearing two wedding dresses (not at the same time though...that would just look crazy) as we are having the registry office marriage here in Ireland and then the symbolic ceremony will be in Italy.  The beautiful navy blue number pictured above is my dress for the registry office...I absolutely adore it!  My mom helped me pick this and she fell in love with it too.  I wanted something shorter, and more structured in a contrasting colour so I picked navy blue (are you really so surprised?!) with a gorgeous embellished neckline, defined waist and a skirt with pockets that falls just below the knee (super flattering!!)


Here's a closer look at the beaded detailing on the neck.  I plan on wearing it with gold earrings, nude pumps and my nude leather clutch from ASOS.  


And here's what the back looks like.  I love it so much!!  The square-cut back is so cute.  I really can't wait to wear this.  Our registry office wedding will be in late August, very close to the symbolic ceremony so fingers crossed the Irish summer will last till then!  (The dress is from Monsoon.)


Finally, because I'm such a kind soul I have provided you lovely readers with a TEENY TINY sneaky peek at my actual wedding dress...hahaha, but that's all I'm giving you!  One ruffle. That's all you get.  For now.  

Stay Stylish!
xoxo


P.S. Fashion video will be up tomorrow instead of today due to a massive freaking HOLE appearing in my ceiling followed by a complete and utter panic attack.  Yup.  Not even kidding.  Apologies for that, but I'm sure you understand...it RAINED on my hallway.  No joke!

  17. Anna, this is STUNNING!!! It's absolutely gorgeous. EVERY. SINGLE. DETAIL. You are going to look amazing in it. You do realise, though, that I will have to visit Monsoon now? Now I really want this dress... It's one of my favourite shapes and I adore navy blue. Dying for it now... D.Y.I.N.G...
