- Wedding: May 2014
I just got engaged on Friday, but SO and I are shooting for May 17 or May 24 next year so we are really trying to get all of the big things planned right away. I’m going to wait until we secure our venue, but for the most part we are looking at banquet halls or hotels so it will be kind of formal.
I LOVE ballgowns (strapless or sweetheart, but open to straps) and after going through some magazines with SO just to see what he absolutely hates as far as styles, his taste is also for ballgown/princessy type dresses, strapless. I’m only 5’3″ but will be wearing heels and love the drama of a ballgown. We will be married in a Catholic Church.
My parents are paying for my dress and I’d really like to keep it at $1000 or under if possible as they are on a limited budget. Just started looking and am favoring more simple designs (which surprises me, before I always imagined I would want a lot of bling).
Any Bees with pics of themselves (especially if you are short!) in simple ballgowns may you share??
For reference, here are a couple that I think are beautiful (but keep in mind I JUST started looking, like, yesterday):
