Thank you so much for your congratulatory wishes on my recent engagement. With a wedding date set (less than 10 months away), I have started to look for my wedding dress. I must say...this is wayyy more fun than all other wedding tasks combined... :D
I have always been drawn to the trumpet/mermaid silhouette so that pretty much stuck in my head. I also had my heart set on alencon lace...so a lace trumpet/mermaid dress was the way to go! Or so I thought...
The above dress belongs to a friend of mine; she got it at David's Bridal a few years back. My first appoinment was at David's Bridal (where I had to wait 30 minutes for my turn). Sighhh...but then it's David's Bridal, I should keep my expectations low. I just wanted to get a feel of the experience, test out different silhouettes to see if what I have in my head actually look good on me.
Here's another lace/beaded trumpet look. But my heart isn't singing.
This fun organza dress is from the Vera Wang White line made exclusively for David's Bridal. Fiancee actually likes poofy dresses. :) I think I'm starting to like organzas too!
They had me try on some other dresses that were hideous...WHY WHY WHY? Disappointed at the selection at David's Bridal, I headed over the Monique Lhuillier in Beverly Hills for our next appoinment. Just a note, they don't let you take pictures here. I forced fiancee to sneak in these pix of me.
The dress on the left is Peony, easily my favorite out of the bunch. The right is a 2-piece corset and skirt. I tried on a bunch more but sorry, no pix. :(
I'm really excited for my next post because I went to Vera Wang this past Saturday and they actually let us take pictures! Stay tuned for more wedding dresses. I might have found the one! ;)
