I am going shopping with my mother, sisters, grandmothers and a couple of my bridesmaids for my wedding dress in about a month. I have been pouring through magazines and online pictures to figure out what style I think will work for me. I consistently like a lot of the Allure Couture line… but I am nervous that I am putting too much “hype” into dress shopping!
I definitely want something that is different/dramatic, yet romantic and elegant. I am not the bride who wants the classic look, or anything that is too plain ( not to offend anyone, it just is not my style). I am afraid that nothing is going to look good on my body type or that I won’t find the one haha. I am pretty tall (5’8) and my FI is 5’9… so I do not want a dress that is going to swallow him! I also am on the busty side… even though I only weigh 133 lbs I still wear a D cup ( TMI, I know.. sorry) so I dont want the girls to be popping out, especially since my grandparents will be there!
The ceremony and reception are both to be held outdoors at a rustic village in Tennessee… so I want to try and have my dress complement the venue and my own personal taste. Any suggestions?
Any advice from other brides out there who had similiar stories or experiences? What styles should I avoid or which ones should I definitely try on?
