- Wedding: July 2012
Oh bees, I’ve been searching and searching for a dress. Nothing is jumping out at me! I feel, meh, when I put these dresses on. I want to feel that excitement, I want to feel beautiful, I want to know “this is IT!”
I feel like what I “don’t” like eliminates 80% of the dresses on the rack, and the rest of the dresses leave me uninspired. Just as an FYI, so you know what I’m working with, here’s what I like:
strapless, sweetheart, lace or plain, a little bit of sparkle, more traditional, fit and flare
What I don’t like:
pickups, assymetry, shreds, ruffles, appliques, rosettes, straps of any kind, a-line
My question to you all is, how did you know your dress was IT? (I know when you know, you know- right?) But… how did it make you feel? What made you pull the trigger, so to speak?
Also, how did you tackle the dress search? Did you go to shops, look online, find ones online then call shops?
Finally- what are some good places to look for dresses? I think I looked through ALL of the dresses on theknot.com. I tried brides.com but their gown search was stupid. I could only see 12 at a time and had to keep loading the next page, and when there are thousands of dresses that gets annoying.
What do you all think?
