Gown Sale in Indy!!!!!

For those of you that want to get a steal of a deal on a wedding gown--
Next weekend there is a charity sale in Indy sponsored by Brides Against Breast Cancer. Some of the gowns are donated by brides, however the majority are overstocks, samples, and the like from bridal shops. They are mostly brand new gowns that have never been worn, and they are available at a huge discount. There are many designer labels and high end gowns!
Affairs will be donating a bunch of accessories, veils and jewelry to the organization. It's a terrific opportunity for those of you that are budget conscious brides!
This is similar to the Filene's Basement Bride's Stampede, so you will want to wear appropriate undergarments and maybe even a leotard so that you can try gowns on without having to wait for a fitting room.
Let me know if any of you attend, and how it goes! I would love some feedback on the sale!
Happy Hunting!

Katie and Mike 5-8-2010

Well if we gave a prize for the most beautiful flowers, last Saturday would have won it hands down! Their flowers were not just beautiful, they were exquisite!! I see a lot of wedding flowers, and these were absolutely awesome. The peonies smelled absolutely heavenly, and the French tulips, wow! They were the most beautiful, delicate pink, with their long, slender, graceful stems--I just love them! In order to make spring branches, they wired the individual flowers from pink stocks to curly willow branches. They looked like Kwansin Cherry blooms--so pretty! The branches also had dripping glass baubles hanging from them. The effect of the whole arrangement was amazing.
Katie and Mike were a delight! Such a great couple. They had originally planned to have their wedding in the garden, but when the weather turned crappy, and the temperature was only about 50 degrees, they decided that maybe the chapel was the place for their ceremony. They were able to get pictures taken in the garden before the wedding (so smart, I love it when the bride and groom get their pictures together done before the ceremony, it really maximizes their time.)
It was a delightful evening, with a beautiful couple, making their dreams come true. What a wonderful job we have!!
