Now that the wedding is OVER (wootwoot), I thought it would be a fun post to share the variety of dresses I tried on while dream-dress-shopping, and let you in on some secrets that helped me pick "the one."
Dresses come in all different price ranges. It was important to me I didn't spend a fortune on a dress I'd only wear once.
It's like I'm frugal or something :-)
Your assistants first question will be about your budget - so make sure you set this prior to your first dress appointment
In another life when I get married in a church or a beautiful country club, this is my go-to.
It was poofy. There were feathers. It screamed NO.
But I did it anyway.
While you may have an idea of what you want, keep an open mind because you'll be surprised the endless options.
For me, I wanted something that was "timeless." I wanted something where I'd look at pictures 30 years from now and not have to explain to my beautiful grandchildren "That was the style back in 2014." I wanted something that complimented my location, and flattered my figure.
I also wanted something that made my mom cry the moment she saw me wearing the gown, but let's be honest - she cried with every dress.
