Lace Loving

If you follow me on twitter you know that I went wedding dress shopping yesterday :-)
Exciting stuff I tell ya.

My bestie, miss Megan, of course tagged along for all the action


(and if you are wondering...that is my sexy work outfit I wear day in and day out. Khakis and a Polo Baby)

And my Mama and my Granny made the trip too.
It meant the world to me having them both there.
Love my family!

I went into wedding dress shopping with a very open mind.
This run was just to decide on what looks I liked and what actually looked good on my bodytype.

I did not pick THEE dress, however, one thing is for sure....I am a lover of LACE!
The lace dresses just popped on me and had that "WOW" factor.
I narrowed it down to two at the bridal store I visited yesterday.
I plan on doing a couple more shopping trips before any final decisions.
I am a creature of indecisiveness so excessive dress trying on is a must for this gal.

Here are some similar looks that I feel in love with.






I am pretty  much sold on either the Vneck or strapless (more sweetheart look) necklines. The Vneck looked amazing in person. A million times better than what it looks like on the hanger.
And I can't not describe how much in love I am with the lacey look.
Ahhh I love wedding dresses!!

So while no earth shattering decisions have been made, I have a better idea of what I am looking for in the dress department.
1. Lace
2. Ivory Dress
3. Sweetheart/strapless or Vneck neckline
More shopping next friday with my mama right before we leave for Las Vegas.
Things are following into place day by day :-)

This is SOOO super exciting! I absolutely love lace (obv bc I had it for my dress)! And I would say that it is a great idea to keep trying on dresses. My dress was literally the 2nd dress I tried on. I know that I wouldn't have wanted another dress but I wished I tried on more dresses for the fun of it bc it only happens once!!

I just stumbled across your blog, and I am loving it! I'm getting married next year, and I haven't even started looking for dresses, but I love the ones you showed here. I am so excited to be your newest follower and read more from you. I hope you'll stop by my blog, Cupcakes and Candy Canes, sometime!
