It's hard to believe it's that time - wedding dress shopping. Ahh...I'm so nervous because I'm so insecure and I know I'll just think I look fat in everything and be so indecisive.
But everyone says, "...you'll just know. You'll put on a dress and you'll tear up and you'll say, 'this is the one'. It happens to everyone."
Does it? I'm nervous... what if I don't find a dress?
Any tips for dress shopping? What bra to wear? Should I wear Spanx?
We're making a special weekend of it with all of the family coming in town. I'm going to have a large group with me shopping...which I know is usually frowned upon, but I really couldn't think of leaving anyone out...
Who is accompanying me shopping: my mom, my sister (her 2 month old baby), my future MIL, my future SIL, my fiance's SIL (and my future SILSIL?), and my best friend Jtay (see white swan).
I'm so excited, anxious, nervous.... I really just don't know what to expect.
I have a day FULL of appointments because I want LOTS of options... Luckily, since Charleston is the capital of weddings, there were plenty of boutiques to choose from - White, Maddison Row, Bella Vista, Bella Couture....
I've got so many pictures of dresses saved that I need to print out and take with me. Martha Stewart's wedding blog just posted a lot of pictures from the Bridal Fashion week.
I'm loving these new styles from Vera Wang...gorgeous. I really like the green dress - really. Although I think dancing with your groom would prove difficult since the giant flower is right on the front of you. I genuinely believe that the 'white' wedding dress tradition may be completely extinct in 10 or 20 years - so many designers are making colored or hued wedding dresses these days.
And I'm dying over these new dresses from Monique Lhuillier -- especially this first one. It's exactly what I really want in a dress and it looks so much like my mom's wedding dress that I wanted to wear (but was too big for). It's got that whole Grace Kelly wedding dress look that I love... I'm hoping that Maddison Row already has this dress...but I think it might not be in stores yet... :(
