I’m so confused because I love shopping!!! But looking for a simple, elegant ivory elopement dress is stressful. Although we haven’t set a date we’ve discuss one we get engaged (im guess within the next 2-4 weeks) that we will elope as soon as we can put all the details together (photag, venue, officiant). So I can’t go the route I thought which was to look for an ivory Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, since those dresses take 8+ weeks to come in.
Anyway, i’ve been looking on line for a dress I can buy off the rack (nordstrom, macys, bloomys, etc…) and custom (etsy, simplybridal, lightinthebox, etc…) and I’ve gone to a few department stores and I can’t find anything I love. I did by 2 dresses today though. one that was a good deal and the sales lady loved and another one I kind of liked. sorry I’m just venting because I thought this would be fun and its not. I *migih* be a little annoyed that my Boyfriend or Best Friend won’t give me a more definite date since he wants it to be a surprise even though we’ve been looking and venues, rings, photographers, etc… SIGH

Dress shopping was an utter NIGHTMARE for me. I kid you not, I looked at close to 13 stores and tried on who knows how many dresses. I honestly felt like I was just going to have to settle for something at some point in time! My last place I almost decided to back out of because there was no way it would work out, I mean look at my luck right? But eventually I found the one =) What I did was just randomly go and try your luck. Yes its frustrating at times but you will find something!
