Wedding Report Part II - The Dress

As I'm sure is true for most brides, the most exciting part of the wedding preparations for me was choosing the dress. I loved going dress shopping with my mum and sharing those precious moments together, just the two of us. I tried on a lot of dresses in various bridal shops but they were all quite similar, strapless with full skirts and a lot of beading. They were all beautiful but I knew that I wanted something a little bit different. I eventually found 'The One' in a shop called Pan Pan in Edinburgh. It was a Jenny Packham dress called Petra and I fell in love with it immediately. From that moment I couldn't wait to wear it on my wedding day. I chose a hair comb also by Jenny Packham and a beaded veil completed the look.


Remember that parasol I posted about here?

I can't describe how much I loved wearing that dress. It felt so beautiful and elegant and I loved the way it floated around as I danced at our reception. The great thing is that I get to wear it again when we have Part II of our wedding back in Italy in a couple of weeks time. Lucky me! :)
