Wedding Wednesday

Every Wednesday I am going to try and post something about how my wedding planning is going and what decisions I've made so far.
Right now planning is in kind of a limbo, I want to enjoy this Christmas season with my family so that has been my main focus. 
I have been looking at dresses for our engagement pictures though. 
I like the look of this dress from Modcloth. Reading the reviews though I'm just not sure if my mom and I would be able to alter the dress to fit correctly.

I have a couple DIY projects that I need to get going on, so after the holidays I'll show you some of those if they turn out.
