This is me. Trying on the first wedding dress that I really liked. It’s still in the running 😉
It was a quite surreal experience, I must admit. I never really pictured myself as a BRIDE. I’m not the woman who has dreamed and planned my dream wedding since I was a little girl. Nor am I the ‘princess’ type. I’m more of an understated, classic, simple – type.
Now, as anybody who’s ever planned a wedding, ever, knows: Advice will come out of the woodwork! I’ve heard about all the dresses that I MUST try, dresses I must avoid, dresses that I will regret when I look at my pictures, and dresses that don’t logically equate to the cost/quality equation. And you know what I said? No way! I’ll go insane if I try to take all this advice to heart! So, I made an executive decision to try on at least one dress in every category – keep an open mind – I never know what might look Ah-maz-ing on me! So thats exactly what Im doing. And surprisingly, this eye that is normally drawn to simple, sleek, old hollywood glamour silhouettes, is seeing that other forms can actually be more flattering. For example, the above picture.
BTW- Thanks Chape for helping me get my body back into ‘dress shape’!
On this shopping trip, I didn’t find my dress-love…yet. But I’ll be keeping at it and posting as I go!
What do you think?
