i chose doc marten boots (from zappos) because i grew up in the 90's and always wore docs. i also got married in march in chicago. they kept my feet warm and i didn't run the risk of falling down. i wore fishnets because i thought they were fun. i wanted the smaller eyelet but as i was madly shopping for them at hot topic (because doesn't everyone shop for their wedding attire there?) two days before the wedding the bigger was all i could find.
as for the red lipstick, it came into play once i chose how i was going to do my hair. i have a pixie and i didn't want to grow my hair out for my wedding. a pixie is me and i wanted my wedding to be a reflection of that. instead a girl i worked with found a picture of finger waves and i fell in love. the model in the picture had on red lipstick and i knew i had to too. my hair turned out awesome on the day but i did need to grow it out a bit. i had nick carter from the backstreet boys circa 1996 hair when it wasn't done up. not good. i still have a pixie but my hair isn't that color any more. too pricey.
i hope you enjoyed this peek into my wedding. i see a lot of wedding recaps out there and i read every single one of them. i can't imagine making posts of mine. they look like too much work. maybe someday.
