  • Wedding Wednesday

are very secretive about their “Look” for the big day. No one but mom and sisters see the dress before hand and they NEVER try it on except for a fitting. Welp, this wasn’t the case for me. I came home with my dress, ran to the bathroom and threw it on as soon as I walked in the door! I showed Daddy immediately!! Now I didn’t try it on for friends but my family saw it on  before hand because I was PUMPED! I didn’t even ask daddy if he didn’t want to see it before the wedding day, I just walked into the kitchen and exclaimed “DADDY LOOK!!!! THIS IS IT!!“.  He smiled and hugged me and

told me I was beautiful.  I wish I could say that was the only time I tried it on before the big day but it wasn’t! I tried my dress on whenever I got excited…. and that was quite often! If I had a free 30 minutes with no where to go, I’d throw my dress on!

 

It was fun and I still try to fit into my dress when I go home every now and then!:) However, parts of me wish that I had waited to show daddy until the big day so that he could have been shocked! …. But really, we didn’t need any EXTRA emotions on 101010.  Between Michael and my dad, we could have gone through 3 boxes of kleenexes during the ceremony!!  It was wonderful! If you haven’t seen our wedding, you can view it here! 

 

I’ve had several brides ask if they could not only share a “First Look” with their almost-husband….. but also with their Dad. I love this. If we can budget in the time for it, I say GO FOR IT because it’s a beautiful moment to capture!!  A lot of the time, the bride is running a little behind schedule and she’ll see her dad quick and will give him a kiss and then run on her way to the next thing on her list.  Dad is PAYING for this grand affair and you’re his little girl…. who he is about to give away….I don’t care HOW tough your dad may seem, this isn’t an easy day for him. It’s a monumental day in the life of a parent and so I think it’s super sweet to make sure that dad has some time with his girl before he walks her down the aisle. Now I’m not talking 20 minutes….. but setting aside a few minutes to make sure your daddy gets a good look at you and can give ya a big hug is a great idea! Here are some examples of some SWEET Daddy/Daughter First Looks!

 

Love this so much!

I was in tears…. and so was everyone else!

Sweetest dad… love their relationship!

Again, everyone watching needed a tissue or two.

And for those of you waiting to hear who won the Starbucks giveaway…. dun,dun,dunnnn…. It’s Becky! (be looking for a starbucks egift girl!)  She was the first to mention SWEETENED Passion Fruit Tea Lemonade! You have to have ALL the parts! If it’s not sweetened, it’s not as good… if you don’t have the Lemonade part.. it’s not as tasty! This drink has become my new obsession! Love it!! Thanks to everyone who entered!!
