The Dress and Shoes
Since I was coming from Vancouver Island, they made arrangements for me to come over when the dress arrived, and I was able to get it fitted on a Thursday evening. The seamstress worked on it all day Friday, and I got to try it on and leave it the next morning. Unbelievable work and service, and I was so grateful. Especially, being from out of town, that I didn’t have to make a bunch of separate trips over. As for the shoes, I wanted something dressy but sandal-like for the tropical destination, and I found the perfect ones from the Dessy website. I ordered them, and they arrived at my house two days later and fit perfectly!
The Rings and the Jewellery
Kyle had bought my engagement ring two years ago at Lugaro Jewellers, and I was set on getting the matching band. When we went to pick it up, we also found the perfect one for Kyle! I got my necklace and earrings from Swarovski and my Sapphire bracelet as my ‘something blue’ from People’s Jewellers. My childhood dance teacher and a now great friend also surprised me the day of the wedding with one of her grandma’s rings. This was also a Sapphire and worked perfectly as my ‘something borrowed.’ Of course, it also worked as ‘something old’, along with the old wedding photograph of my grandparents. Obviously, my dress (and pretty much everything else) was my ‘something new’!
