|Our family in all our wedding finery!|
- Kari's dress was made by her Grandma, Carma Lee. It is a true keepsake. Kari was even able to be married in it in the temple. Brides are asked to keep their dresses simple for the temple, so most girls today wear a temple dress and then change into their wedding dress afterward. Kari's dress was pretty basic, yet beautiful. The fabric was from Joann Fabrics. We looked all over the Salt Lake Valley and ended up finding the right fabric in Centerville. Specialty fabric shops are more scarce than they used to be, which makes sewing a custom wedding gown difficult if you want to use lace. To get an idea of what she wanted, Kari tried on dresses at David's Bridal in Layton, Lauren James Bridal at the University Mall in Orem, and Bridal Image at Colonial Square in Bountiful. SO FUN!
- My dress (the blue ruffles with the white sweater) was from Macy's--the first one I tried on (what a load off my mind)!
- Darin's suit was from Mr. Mac. Because he's not a big suit wearer, he was definitely up for a new one.
