Trash the Dress 10th Wedding Anniversary Photos

Our wedding day was colorful, casual and attended by friends and family who knew us best. Just 20 years old, we planned our wedding as best we could right out of college; on a budget with a simple cake and decorations, a lovely dress from a bridal shop liquidation sale, flower bouquets I made myself, and my hairstyle, makeup and photos done by friends. Our wedding was perfect for our stage in life —  and even more importantly, initiated our marriage which we’ve enjoyed for almost 10 years. In May 2018 we will celebrate our 10th anniversary and I can say with confidence that while our wedding was pretty, our marriage and family life have been even more lovely and meaningful. I feel very blessed. To celebrate our 10th anniversary milestone we thought it would be fun to use my budget-friendly wedding dress (which still fits after 3 babies!) and take Trash the Dress photos! This glamour style photoshoot turned out gorgeously with the fall colors around our home!

Girls love pretending to be mermaids. I know because when I was a child I loved the idea of mysterious mermaids with shimmery tails and under-the-sea hairstyles.

My daughter had a mermaid-inspired birthday party and decorated her room with mermaid pennant banners and pillows. Here are some fun ideas for all girls who love mermaids!
