Found the Dress!

I am so excited - I found my wedding dress! This past Saturday, I tried on another slew of wedding dresses. I thought one of the first ones could have been it, but the absolute last dress I tried on was THE one! I am quite an indecisive person, so we didn't purchase it then. Plus, I wanted my mom and sisters to try on MOB and bridesmaid dresses. (My mom did end up buying her dress AND getting a great deal on it.) So, we made another appointment for yesterday. The only downside was that Saturday night (after a few glasses of wine), I looked back through the pictures and started second-guessing myself. But, yesterday, we went back and I tried them both on again. I put my dress on second and knew that was it. Even other people said so. Although, in my opinion, why do people do that? Did I look so bad in the last dress, that's why they're saying it? I guess that's the pessimistic side of me! :) Regardless, I found my dress and am so glad. Now - to the hard parts: keeping it a secret from Jim and finding a resort for the wedding!

No Wedding Dress Yet :(

Well, my wedding dress shopping excursion this past Saturday did not conclude in a purchase. :( However, I was able to get a better idea of the type of dress I'm looking for. The first dresses I tried on were the traditional A-line skirts. I like a few of them, but they really don't seem conducive to a beach wedding. Then, I started trying on the dresses with slimmer skirts. These seem to be hit or miss on me. Some seem to make my hips look huge, but there was one, that I really did like. There are a few more dresses that I want to try on at David's Bridal, so I have made another appointment for this Saturday...

Wedding Dress Shopping Today!

Today, I'll be meeting my mom, two sisters, and niece for lunch, and then we will be heading to David's Bridal to go dress shopping! I'm a little surprised I'm looking forward to it so much, which is weird in itself. (Don't all brides get super excited about going dress shopping?) For the past couple of months, my sisters kept asking when are we going dress shopping, when are we going? I guess it seemed like the wedding was too far out to be thinking about finding a dress already. Plus, we still haven't picked out a resort yet because we're waiting for airfare prices, which will be available in April. But, we hit the one-year away mark this past Wednesday, so the date is definitely getting closer. I also will be giving my sisters and niece their Will You Be My Bridesmaid/Flower Girl cards at lunch. I finished them up last weekend and I think they turned out pretty cute - I hope they like them!
