I got my garter from etsy and I loved it. As for a getaway dress, I didn't do it either. You ony get to wear that dress once and I wanted to wear it all night!!

I got a few things crossed off of my checklist yesterday and it felt so good! I'm with you - I'm not doing a second or getaway dress. Why would I want to change out of my beautiful wedding dress that I'll probably only wear once in my life?!?
