Wedding Wednesday is a feature I created here on the blog to mark my wedding journey from now until August. Sometimes bookish wedding related things will surface and sometimes not. Click here for more Wedding Wednesday posts.
I’m so excited! I’m going dress shopping finally on October 29! I’ve wanted my little sister and stepmom to be able to come down for it so we were limited in the days we could go because my sister runs cross country pretty much every weekend. BUT YAY FINALLY at the end of this month I will be trying on wedding dresses and weeping my little eyes out because I’m that kind of girl who will cry about this sort of thing because I’m sentimental, it will finally hit me that we are getting married and because I’ll be missing my mom.
So now I have a month to figure out what the heck kind of dress I want! I’m not one of those girls who have had this vision of what I want to look like on my wedding day since I was a little girl. I’ve never really given much thought to it other than I want to look amazing…obviously.
The problem when it comes to browsing through bridal magazines and wedding blogs is that every dress I like is SO EXPENSIVE. I naturally have expensive taste as it is but I just also am a realist in that it is a DRESS that I am going to wear for one day and one day only. Do I really want to spend insane amounts of money on this? But then on the other side, I love fashion (always have) and I want the perfect dress.
But what is the perfect dress? I mean, I’m sure I could go in a store and find lots of dresses that look good on me. I’m sure I could keep looking and find plenty of dresses I like. My fear is that I’m going to go in there and keep looking and looking because I’ll keep wondering if there is a better one out there and keep my eye on others even if I bought one…which is like a clear violation of everything I’ve ever learned while watching Say Yes To The Dress. I’m also kind of picky..so there is that. I could be that picky bride on SYTTD or that bride that has NO idea what she wants. Because I don’t. I’ve seen dresses of all kinds that I like…pretty much in every style. I know that I don’t want a princess gown or anything poofy..but really does that narrow it down? NO.
I was going to link you to dresses that I really like but I realize I don’t know what I like. Perhaps in a later post I will have a better idea and can show you? That is if you feel like lusting over wedding dresses with me 🙂
