My BF and I will be getting engaged in July. We started planning in April though. We’ve booked the venue, photographer, wedding coordintor and caterer. Wanted to get big things out of the way. This is a second marriage for both of us and with 6 kids between us, planning is going to be hectic.
So, i started looking for dresses in April too. Wanted to get an idea of what i liked, price point etc, because i want to have a dress ordered by September. Yes, it’s early but I wanted it done before school started back up and my time was limited again.
I have found two dresses i really like – Maggie Sottero Kyra (no pics of me in it yet) and Mori Lee 1811. My mom is insisting i don’t need to spend that much on a dress and although she gave me ‘THE LOOK’ when she saw me in the maggie, she said it was too formal for a beach wedding. I can’t find any chiffon dresses i like. They are few and far between and the ones i try make me feel like i’m wearing a night gown. My mom, sisters and BF like the Mori Lee but didn’t like it too..i loved how i felt in that one and was so disappointed that no one was excited as me. BUT i do love Kyra just as much, just totally different dresses.
I feel like i’m never gonna find something that’s just right. Sigh.
Here’s a pic of me in the Mori Lee.
