First up, the dress the dress the dress!
So much fun picking the DRESS!!!
I, like most brides I'm sure, LOVED the entire process of picking my wedding dress. I mean, I loved everything about it. I think a lot of it has to do with my incredible sisters and friends that were there to make the process so much fun and enjoyable.
Since our engagement was pretty short [barely seven months] after we decided on the wedding date, venue, and church I immediately emailed my bridal party and girlfriends to get a dress date on the books. I was engaged 2/17 and I made my dress appointment for 3/9 so you can see that I didn't waste ANY TIME.
I had always envisioned myself walking down the aisle in a Kate Middletonesque dress [before there was Kate of course], and I saw that David's Bridal had a dress similar to hers online. I know some people look down on David's but I knew I wanted to try on anything and everything so David's made the best starting point.
My first wedding dress appointment was AMAZINGLY perfect and so much fun. We grabbed a TON of gowns and my dress consultant was the best lady ever. She let me try on everything and didn't even flinch when my sisters brought dresses into the dressing room. I was mega bummed David's no longer carried the dress I envisioned wearing, but I didn't let that deter me from finding the one. Below are some of the fun options we found.

and ADORED the fun and swishyness of the dress on the right
My dress was a lacy fit and flare withe sequins and flower embellishments. If someone had told me a year ago I would wear flowers on my wedding day I would have laughed in their face. But, the flowers on my dress were perfectly whimsical and me and I am SO IN LOVE with how I looked the dress. I felt glamourous, sophisticated, sexy, and beautiful, which was exactly how I imagined feeling on my wedding day.
Below are some of my favorite pictures showcasing my beautiful dress. You'll see more in other posts though, don't worry ;)!
I loved the beautiful details on the bust line.
