In less than one month, we will celebrate our 10th anniversary. Yes, 10 years of marriage. No, we didn’t get married when we were twelve. We were looking pretty good, then! Look at my tan, even!
(Wow have wedding dress styles changed in the last 10 years. I love mine, but there sure are some new gorgeous ones out there!)
Before our wedding, there were only a couple formal occasions in our lives. You know, homecoming, prom and the sister-in-law’s wedding. Then there wasn’t an opportunity for us to get “all fancy” again until my sister’s wedding several years later. I think we looked pretty darn fancy (despite me being exhausted and 10 weeks pregnant with E!)
Mr. Serious just attended his best friends’ wedding (it didn’t work out for me to go), and I really can’t think of any other weddings that we will get to attend. So when will I have another fancy occasion to dress up? Because after having 3 babies (with almost number 4 here), I’d like to find myself dressed up, fancy, all dolled up, and looking good.
Originally, our plan was to do something totally awesome and amazing for our 10th anniversary; a trip, a weekend out, with fancy dinners and wonderful entertainment. But, considering I will be about 38 weeks pregnant, that can’t happen. So, now I look around at stores and dream and figure we’ll do something awesome and amazing for our 11 1/2 anniversary? Okay, realistically maybe our 12th anniversary. When that time comes? I’m going to total rock it!
When I was looking around, I found these super cute and fancy dresses, most of them in the evening category. I can’t decide which is my favorite, because they are all awesome and all will work with some slight mommy tummy that might not be good. They come in different colors, too, but it appears I prefer the bright jewel tones.
When was the last time you got all dressed up in a fancy new dress? Which dress would you pick for your next event?
