You all wanted to hear the details of our night out - so I'm happy to tell you all about it!
First of all, I must share the history:
When we got married, I said that every year on our anniversary I would wear my wedding dress. I never did - I always found some excuse or reason not to or wasn't confident enough to do it. Until this year, that is!
Yes, I did wear my wedding dress out for dinner - put a 3/4 sleeve sweater over it and it was really fun to wear it again! I still love this dress!!! It was quite snug when fully zipped - so perhaps in five more years I'll have to have it let out a bit?!
While I was nervous to wear my dress in some ways, when I walked in the restaurant - the hostesses realized that I was and that it was our anniversary and commented on how neat it was and how they want to do that! So, I was encouraged!
We went downtown to a neat newish restaurant that I'd never even heard of. I loved the name and how it was decorated! The walls were gray, burlap curtains, black and white and galvanized - loved the colors!
They served water in neat bottles with little flip glass top lids and their logo decal on the bottle:
And, bread was served in tin cans with waxed paper squares inside and olive oil dipping sauce on the side:
They had a neat candle on the table - I guess I did not get a picture of it. But, it was a small votive holder with a tall piece of waxy paper rolled up inside and tied with twine.
We had a delicious dinner of filet mignon, yummy garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus and crispy onions. I brought about half of mine home and had dessert - brownie torte! Yummy!
It was a wonderful night out and so much fun to be with my sweet hubby! You can see what I gave him here and what he gave me here. Maybe I will make it a tradition to wear my dress every five years!
Would you consider wearing your wedding dress again? Or, have you ever worn it again? I can't wait to hear!
