Show Me Your Wedding Attire!

Tonight on Show Me Your (fill-in-the-blank) I’m answering to my friend Cheri’s request, from CheGo2 the Kitchen. Check out her blog… she lives in the Philippines!! How cool is that?

She asked to see my wedding dress. Sadly, I can’t post it bc my fiance reads this site, and he knows it’s supposed to be a surprise.

But don’t worry! I have something else in store for you Cheri, which, for sentimental reasons, definitely deserves its own post.

When my mom flew in a few weeks ago, I mentioned that we went to Merida to check out different wedding stuff. Our first stop was at Tai Spa, which was gorgeous! The whole spa was covered in fresh bugambilias… and ya’ll know how I feel about bugambilias πŸ™‚

I went there to get my wedding hair trial done. I brought in a picture, but the girl did something quite different… but soooo much better than what I had envisioned.

The top is going to be a bit poofier the day of, to add some more volume.

The swirly bun on the bottom is also going to have more "oomph" to it the day of, even though I think it looks beautiful as is πŸ™‚

The juliet cap is almost 60 years old, I think. It was first used by my grandma, then by my mother on her wedding day. I can never look as good as my mom did in this because she has gorgeous long dark hair. Still, I think it looks pretty awesome.

  1. Oh, how beautiful!!! I love family traditions! And what a great stylist! On my wedding day they did my hair and I started crying because it was SO awful…luckily one of the other stylists took over and hooked me up! lol… but your hair is going to look so gorgeous!!!!!

  2. Oh my gosh! I LOVE. That juliet cap is amazing and how cool that it’s been passed down through generations of your family.

    I took photos to my hair trial too and wish that it had had a better outcome. Instead it was a disaster! πŸ™‚

  4. Wow. I LOVE the juliet cap. It’s so beautiful! I’ll bet the dress is amazing. I can’t wait to see it! Your hair looks so good! Did you do something special after getting the test run done to show off your do?

  5. Hello all! First of all, I’m glad my experience was better than some of yours! Not glad that yours sucked… but glad that mine had a good outcome πŸ™‚

    To answer some questions:

    My wedding is in late July.

    I WILL be posting pictures of the dress (and everything else… just TRY to stop me!)

    I didn’t go anywhere special after the trial… it was noon, and from there we went to check out other wedding vendors. I did feel pretty fabulous the whole day, though!
