One-Week Wedding Countdown!

So, this is crazy: I'm getting married in one week! Considering I've known Tyler for 13 years, and proposed to him two years ago, one week is super fast! I can't believe it's almost time!

Today, I thought I'd make a post about what I'll be wearing at my wedding, and how I'm planning to look [insert Teen Girl Squad voice here] soooo goooood!

First, let's talk about my hair. Anyone who's met me knows that my hair is its own animal. That means a few things--one, I don't like people touching it, and two, I like leaving it down and natural. So I'll be putting tons of gel in my hair that day to make it extra curly, and I'm planning to put purple roses in it! 

Everyone knows I'm obsessed with the color purple. I even considered getting a purple dress at first, but ended up deciding to go with grey so that everything could match with it. Instead, my mom got me some fake purple roses that I'll be putting in my hair. It's gonna look awesome!

I was a little worried about finding a dress at first, for a few reasons. First, I'm terrible at dressing myself, and I don't know how different materials vary, so I was worried I'd end up showing up in something totally wrong for the event. I knew not to search for "wedding dresses"--anything labeled with the word "wedding" is already marked up because the wedding market is a scam when it comes down to it.
This is my dress.
This girl is not me.

I looked on those "budget wedding dress" sites, but those considered it "cheap" to spend $200 on a wedding dress. If I had an extra $200, I'd buy something I need with it, like a used laptop, or my bills. I also decided I didn't want to wear white, mostly because I'm super pale and white doesn't look good on me. 

I ended up finding an awesome grey dress on Modcloth for about $80, which was still more than I wanted to spend, but on the bright side, the dress fits perfectly! It's hard for me to find clothes that fit perfectly without altering--most clothes aren't made for ladies with big hips, small waists, and crooked spines. But this dress fit great on the first try!

I also had a lot of fun funding shoes. I knew from the beginning that I couldn't wear heels, because of my aforementioned crooked spine, and the excruciating back pain that results every time I try.

Instead, I thought I'd wear Doc Martens style boots or shoes. However, I didn't want to buy brand-name Doc Martens, since I didn't want to wear real leather (or any animal-made products), and because they're expensive.

I found these amazing white, fake-leather platform shoes on Modcloth as well! I wish so much that Modcloth was sponsoring this post and would pay me for writing this. They're not. No one pays me to write blog posts. It's a darn shame.

Anyway, the shoes were about $50, which again, was a little more than I wanted to spend--however, they're such amazing looking shoes, that I'm sure I'm going to wear them all the time after my wedding as well! I can see myself getting tons of use out of these.

Yesterday, we picked up our marriage license at the city clerk's office in Chicago. I told Tyler, "I love you so much, I'm willing to get the government involved!" He was not amused.

Next week, before the wedding, I'll post the story of how I proposed to Tyler! 

Happy Friday!

Love,
Savy
