Welll, originally I had planned on waiting a few more years for my wedding....but some family circumstances came up and my mom needed the marriage certificate to be able to use my husband's signature in some paperwork (damn "not being related" bs lol) Sooooo we went ahead with a small ceremony at the courthouse (with a MUCH larger formal ceremony to be in a few years so the whole family can be here) =D

So since I found out the day BEFORE the wedding when we were expected to be at the courthouse ha ha, I pulled an all nighter and made this Yukata for my wedding dress =^.^=

My husband and myself together at a tree right after the ceremony (the courthouse had a lovely garden and fountain for pictures)


Frontal and back views of my Yukata =D




We got a nice downpour right as the wedding ceremony ended =D The walk home in the rain was AWESOME!!


Credit for the pink Obi goes to my mother, she made it in 2hours, and finished just before we had 5min to walk out the door!! We were in quite a rush so I didnt get the obi tied as tightly as I had wanted, but I still think it turned out great for being made over night in a hurry!

Hope everyone likes it as much as I do!! Now just to get the one for the little one made =D

It looks great. Definitely can't tell it was rushed.

I'm half tempted to write up a tutorial for this, the sleeves can be kind of tricky! =D

It looks great. Definitely can't tell it was rushed.

I'm really glad it turned out as well as it did, I've got a few seams on the inside I want to hem over again just to keep the cotton from fraying later, but overall I'm definitely proud of the quality of how it turned out in the end =^.^=

Congratulations!  You look lovely! Love the happy and cheerful pattern you chose...wonderful job on such short notice!!

watshi-wa okasan nihongi desu... so I appreciate the Japanese theme Wink

I can't wait to see your "public" wedding...I am sure it is going to be incredible with your making kimonos for you and your daughter...will you be shortening the sleeves now that you are a married woman? You won't need them to attract your man since you already have one! Grin Wink

BTW--your hair and your hair ornament are also very pretty
