So.. I had the WORST time finding a wedding dress. I’m shorter, thinner, and pickier than I think I knew! I love everything when it’s on the hanger! But I realized I hate a lot of things about how wedding dresses when they are actually on me – too itchy, too heavy, too much cleavage, too much booty, not enough booty (haha), too much ruching, and my favorite one – the upside down calla lily effect!!! <—mermaid dresses for sure!
Haha, so all in all I’m guessing my TEAM (mom, mil, bff) probably had me try on about 150 dresses in 4 different states. No joke; it was awful. Finally, my mom found a great store in KC to help me design my own dress and I just got an email today that it will be ready to try on in 3 weeks!!! Eeeek!!! I am so flipping excited, but also nervous!
I’m attaching the picture of the dress I based my design off of. It’s actually an Oscar De La Renta dress that they only made ONE sample of for their runway show a year ago but aftewards they lost it (yup, I emailed them)! My dress will be a little more sparkly on top, and debating whether the belt should be ivory or black. Hope you like it! And hope I like it when I finally get to wear it!! Double EEK!!! 🙂 It’s the one on the left..

Love it! If you’re using a lot of black in your decor, then I say go for the black belt, but if not I’d go for ivory. Can’t wait to see pics of you in it when it comes in!

Wow, beautiful dress. I agree with the PP if you are using a lot of black in your decor then you should go with a black sash, if not then do ivory. You must post pics when you finally get it.

Thanks all! I literally just got another email from the owner of the store saying that it may be two weeks until it’s in! I feel like I’m going to pop with excitement!! We do have a lot of black going on in the decor – all linens, bridesmaid dresses, vases on the tables are black, etc. So I almost feel like maybe there might be enough black going on already. We will see! We ordered 3 belts – black, ivory and champagne (our 3 colors). So maybe I can take pics of all 3 and you lovely ladies can vote! 🙂
