      here goes:
      the proposal that started it all (may 18, 2007):

      we started to plan a halloween '09 big-fat-at-home-traditional-wedding, and quickly discovered we'd never be able to afford it. after much deliberation (and finding this forum!), we decided on a DW, may 28 '09, at dreams cancun resort and spa, mexico.
      the venue (this gazebo pic had me at hello):

      we pretty much told everyone thru word of mouth and chose to forgo STDs in favor of sending out our actual invites months early. this did *not* happen, LOL. i saw some fabulous BDW'ers DIY pocketfolds and decided i must make some of my own. PROJECT FROM HELL ... mostly because i am a graphic designer and wanted them to be *perfect*. i ripped off the floral design idea from Click the image to open in full size.

      the dress, aka "something new" (allure 8531):

      on me, 2nd fitting:

      not AT ALL what i set out to buy (didn't want strapless or satin), but it was the one that made mom cry. oh and that's not my actual veil ... wasn't sure if i would wear one in dreams cancun's gale-force wind so i didn't want to spend the cash. my sister ended up making me one that she gave to me the morning of the wedding. :)

      the ceremony shoes (had to go with slutty red shoes to offset the purity of the traditional wedding dress, lol!):
