Wedding Day Outfit

I wonder if anyone was as anal over what they would wear the morning of their wedding while getting ready. It was a constant thought for me. My wedding is in July so I knew comfort would be key. I needed something that wouldn't make me overheat and have me sweating like a coca cola bottle at a BBQ.

Before I show you what I bought, let me show you what I didn't decide on.

Gaucho pants: source
These seemed to be the rave a few years ago and could easily be found all over. They're not as easy to find now, but I did eye a few pairs at Target. However, when I tried them on, I didn't really like the way they looked on me. I wanted them in white, and they were SUPER see through. I had to pass.

I love my police officer T-shirt: source
This was a strong option. I want to include Mr.Golden's profession as much and as tastefully possible since it is a huge factor on the decisions we make as a couple. But the fact that it was a t-shirt didn't sit well with me. I don't want to pull anything over my head after my hair gets done {except my dress}.

So with both of those contenders out, I decided on a terry-cloth capri and hoodie set. Terry-cloth is a super soft material and allows air to come through. Although I purchased it in white, it's not as see through as the gaucho pants. I decided to just go nakey under the hoodie {I just have to remember not to unzipper it in front of my family while getting ready!}

The pictures don't really do it much justice but there are little rhinestones on the zipper pull of the hoodie and the draw string hole of the capris

I don't want to go overboard with personalization, but I do plan to get the jacket engraved in the front. It will say:
Mrs. M-------

Have you thought about your wedding day outfit yet?

I have a short sleeve zip hoodie. No pants yet. Do you have any stretchy camis? That's what I plan to put on under my hoody, because I can pull it off like a skirt and it won't have to go over my head :)
