- Wedding: July 2014
Are you good at dressing people? Have you researched a billion dresses already? Want to help a stranger? Can you help me find a dress? Where should I shop? What should I wear?
I kind of hate shopping in general and wedding shopping has mostly just made me sad. I am not a person that would enjoy spending an afternoon shopping for new shoes or a new outfit. I usually know what I like and I buy it spontanously…and I can spot what I like from a far. This has not happend with wedding shopping.
Wedding dress shopping so far has not been worse then I thought but probably as bad as I thought it might be plus more confusing. I have a budget of absolute max 1500 but would much prefer something that was around 200-500 dollars.
I hate itchy clothing but adore kind of funky unique things but also classics. SO far I think I tend to like lace and soft fabrics that are in an A line…with straps maybe or maybe with illusian necklines…I would be happy with short and retro as much as I would be happy for classic rustic with a touch of something special. Pockets would rock but could be built in.
These are the best of what I tried on when I went to 3 dress shops…my feeling is there has to be something that I will LOVE instead of say eh maybe this is ok or maybe this will work or oh that isn’t too bad. But I don’t really know where to find whatever this unknown dress that I am seeking can be found. <br />Also to note I am somewhere between a 18-20 in wedding dresses.
My goals were mostly for me to not look like a shelf or a head on boobs, or a line backer with my full shoulders, not be yanking or adjusting myself in a dress all day but also be able to breathe, I would ideally look dressy/classy but feel comfy and still look like me on my speical day. We are having the wedding at a lodge in November. I would be ok wearing heals with a cute short dress with a birdcage veil, or happy with a long a line dress with cute winter boots under neath and a finger tip veil.
I am planning on having my hair in either a braid or down (Fiance likes it best down)…my mom hates it when I wear it up.
After not shopping and finding the one I wonder..should I be looking at a custom dress (I don’t really know what I want enough I think for this)…should I buy some online dresses and see what happens?
I have a tendency to love summer cotton dresses but also hate high heals in my normal life.
THese are some dresses I didn’t hate:
$1450 Can be with or with out straps
This dress was soooo uncomfy but really the only decent dress I tried on…aroun $500
The fabric here was lovely but I think the boob section did nothing for me…it was a great price though and maybe could be worked with? $499
