It began with blue and green - our wedding colors that is. Blue and green is both Karissa's and my favorite color. However the more we thought about it the more we realized blue and green would be better if we were married in the summer. Both of us also like red and black as a color combination but didn't really think of it as wedding colors. One particular bridesmaid dress style changed that instantly for both of us. Finally we decided on this dress with red and black as our colors. Now that I think about it, I wouldn't have it any other way.
A note from Karissa
I have decided that this is the dress that I want to stick with for the wedding. There should be a David's Bridal near each of you which makes getting sized easy. I think the nearest one to Gainesville is in Jacksonville . I have bridesmaids all over Florida , plus my Maid of Honor is in Texas , so David's Bridal is the best option. I also tried to pick something that you guys would be able to use again. I haven't contacted David's Bridal yet, but I will soon and I will let all of you know when I do. Since it's a floor length dress you guys don't have to have the same shoes. If you have black strap heels, that would work perfect. My colors are red, black, and gold. I also will get a hotel in Ocala so we can get ready together, maybe even two. I'll fill you girls in as more is planned. Thank you all again for sharing this incredible day with me! I can't wait!! Love you all!!
