wedding dress shopping



I realized a few things when I went wedding gown shopping with my Mom and Grandma this past Sunday. 
1. you probably won't like the 1st dress you put on. That only happens on tv and/or to people who are crazy euphorically blinded by love and not ocd like me.
2. those dresses are heavy! who in the hell wants to wear a 50 lb dress all day? Does your body hurt the next day? Is that how pregnant people feel?
3. My dream dress only exists on etsy and the bhldn website.
4. I am strangely comfortable letting random salesladies see me in my underwear
5. no matter how much you pin a size 12 (or 20) it isn't going to look or fit like a 2. Imagination is key.
6. I look horrendous in anything  mermaid-ish or fishtail like. And that makes me sad because Ariel was always my favorite. 








I put a deposit down on a gown but it's a champagne / gold color. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the notion of not wearing white or ivory. Thoughts?
{not my dress of course}

I just bought my wedding dress 2 weeks ago, and I bought it in Champagne. I think it's absolutely gorgeous and a little bit outside the box! I'm sure your dress is stunning!!

And because of this, you can now get some stunning wedding dresses and bridal gowns to suit every occasion and type of wedding.
