Happy Anniversary to Me!

I guess I’m officially an old lady now. This month I passed a huge milestone… five years of marriage. I can’t believe so many years have passed by since we got married! It’s almost scary how fast time flies. I feel like I’m going to blink and I’ll be standing with a couple of kids celebrating my fifteenth anniversary!

For our fifth year anniversary, we wanted to do something special. I’ve been wanting to get professional pictures done for years but it’s pretty expensive so I’ve always put off getting them done because of the price. Since moving to Korea, I got more interested in getting our pictures taken because couple pictures are extremely popular here and very affordable! As luck would have it, I found a coupon on TMON (kind of like South Korea’s Groupon) for a package at a studio for only 48,000₩. I made my coteacher buy it for me and we were set!

I was so shocked to see the price so low. It was really simple. The package included one dress and tuxedo rental, and we chose ten pictures to keep. Our best photo was printed out as an 8×10 and framed. Korean sizes don’t really fit me, so I brought my own dress. Speaking of that dress! Oh, that dress.

My beautiful dress is from Inayah Collection. I’ve had a huge crush on Inayah Collection for quite some time now but I’ve held off purchasing since it is a UK company and shipping is expensive. When I knew I was getting my pictures taken, I decided to take the plunge and purchased their Rose Evening Gown.

I had looked around for awhile to see my options and I have to say… I’m so disappointed with the selection of modest formalwear. There is practically nothing! I can’t be happier with my purchase from Inayah though. I fell in love with it immediately.

The dress is gorgeous and fit me perfectly. It was very flattering on a more *ahem* rounder figure. The material is very soft and I got so many compliments that day. Money well spent!

What do you think of our photo memory? We were laughing through the entire process because our photographer didn’t speak English and we couldn’t help but laugh when we had to stare into each others eyes and stuff. So many laughs!

Q: What is your favorite photo?

    you are so butiful, all pictures are perfect, i wish to your couple the best. I want to ask you what size you ordered, because i want to order the same evening gown, and don’t know which size i take 12 or 14, thanks for your answer

    • http://mrsgaeul.com/ Autumn

      Thank you dear! I ordered the size 14 and I think it’s true to size when you look at the measurements on the website. I measured myself and it matched nicely. So I would say take your measurements and consult the chart. :) Good luck! It’s a beautiful dress.

    Congratulations to the both of you! You look great together and I love these photos. I can’t believe how cheap the package is! Wow. x

    M’A soo cute! I love the dress. Can I know whether the fabric of the dress was stretchy or not? It looks stretchy because the sleeves look like they fit perfectly without struggling to get a hand through the narrowness. Please advise!

      Thank you dear! The dress has little stretch. The sleeves fit my arm perfectly but the fabric is not really stretchy at all. I would recommend following the measurements on the website because they are true and you can be sure to get the right size for you.

      On that note, I did get this altered a little bit for length (I’m too short) and since there is a lot of fabric in the bust you can possible tighten that up and use the fabric to extend the width of the dress a little bit. :)
