I confirmed my first wedding dress fitting for a Saturday in September yesterday and I got to thinking about all those dresses I tried on. It is killing me that I won’t see the thing for another month or two. However, my dress is in Cincinnati, Ohio and I don’t plan on driving up there before then… unless my bridesmaid dresses come in sooner than expected. Girlfran is super busy these days with wedding planning, a career, trying to run a house, make time for friends, and be a good wifey to be.
While I won't share my actual wedding dress, I did want to share the dresses that were a close 2nd.
After being very open to trying on any style and material, I immediately knew I wanted a lace dress and in ivory. The ivory looks so much better with my olive skin tones. I think the lace look is so romantic and is perfect for our country/rustic barn wedding.
These next two dresses are the two I immediately feel in love with and actually went back several times to try them on. I thought it would be one of them.
And then there was the trip to Cincinnati with my mom that sealed the deal. I found three dresses there that blew the other two away.
In third place we have the gorgeous gown.
The neckline looked amazing on me since i have such a long torso. I am almost 5'10"...ain't nothing about me short.
However, I wasn't crazy about the beading under the bust; it almost looked cheap on me.
In 2nd place...this beauty. This pic does not do it justice. It was soooo pretty on me. However, ultimately I decided it looked a lil more formal with the satin detail around the waist. It was gorgeous though.
And then there was the moment where the bridal associate asked me if i brought my wedding shoes. I of course wore my cowboy boots that day and when i put them on under my actual dress....LOVE at first sight.
But y'all will have to wait till after the wedding to see the real thing.
EEEK 114 days to go.
