The Groom's Words

Dress:Dress Go International | Shoes: | Earrings:Forever 21 | Ring and Bracelet:Charlotte Russe

Does this dress remind you of anything?  Nope, me neither.  I see it as simple black dress, one I wore to a rehearsal dinner. 

The groom of the wedding I was a bridesmaid for this past weekend was a little more creative with his dress thoughts. 

One of my very best friends tied the knot on Saturday, so we were practicing our slow walks down the aisle at the rehearsal Friday night. Right before I made my turn toward the alter, the groom looked at me and said in a rather loud chuckle, "You look like a nun." 

A nun? Really? That's a first! So, I decided I was going to play it up a bit. I told him I planned the "nun look" since they were getting married in a Catholic church and that I was so glad he took notice of my meticulously thought out attire.  I think he actually believed me and I never mentioned anything else otherwise. So, now I am wondering if he thinks I am really weird or really cool. Just to make myself feel better, I am going to go with being really cool!

And in case you were wondering, the wedding and entire weekend were filled with magic, memories, laughter, tears, hangovers, best friends and of course raw and true love.  The Matron of Honor did her own rendition of "Baby Got Back".  She rewrote the words for the bride and groom and did a rap on stage at the reception.  I have it on video and want to show it to you, but I need her permission first.  Keep your fingers crossed that she agrees because you will die when you see it!  Best toast/rap/speech ever!! 


Karolyn, I love you and wish you a lifetime a love and happiness.  You deserve it!  You, Brian and your families threw one heck of a celebration! 


Cheers to a weekend that I can't stop smiling about.

I don't know what kind of nuns he's thinking of, but I have never seen one show so much leg...haha. If nuns dressed like that, there would be a lot more boys in Catholic school. You look fantastic and I personally love the white embellishment on the dress.

Funny he said a nun I don't think that would have been my first thought. It quite cute and I think the white helps break it up and give it a little something. I hope she agrees to let you share the video it sounds hilarious!

If that is a nun dress, you are the sexiest nun Shanna! Lol! Personally as I looked @ your pix I was thinking "where did she get that dress?! I want one." I love bibbed tops. It sounds childish but its so vintage looking. Sigh....and you look lovely as always. So glad I peeked in today.

Hugs!

sorry shanna i have to agree with the groom the dress does look like a nun. but i am allowed to say that because my aunt is an actual nun, it is true i am not making it up

Debra said...

Hey Shanna....I don't think my comments have been posting.

You look amazing in that dress. A nun?! Is he serious?! Well you look super.

I love the bib on it. Anything with a bib captures my eye. It makes everything look like a great piece of vintage.
