- Wedding: July 2015
I’ve recently started visiting dress shops and trying on their dresses, just to see what they look like on me. From the start I’ve pretty much focused on dresses that are as light as possible, especially on simple chiffon dresses that wouldn’t need a petticoat or anything. The reason for this is the fact that our wedding is going to be in July so the weather might get hot, and I don’t want to spend my wedding day sweating buckets. It’s unlikely that I will actually buy a dress from a shop because of our very low budget, but I’d like to know what looks good on me before I start looking for good hand-me-downs or something on the internet.
I’ve only been to two dress shops so far, and am planning on visiting at least two more over the next couple of weeks. The first shop was quite small, but I immediately liked one of the dresses that I tried on: a very airy chiffon dress that was so light it felt like I wasn’t wearing almost anything.
However, today I went to another dress shop, and almost nothing there looked good on me. Their chiffon dresses where pretty… unflattering to say the least. But then I tried on a trumpet dress on a whim, just because it was on the sale rack, and I looked absolutely amazing in it. It hugged my curves perfectly and made me slim in all the right places. This surprised me greatly because trumpet shape is not something I had EVER really considered. I don’t think I’ve ever looked as good in anything. The sad thing is that even with reduced price, that particular dress is still way over my budget, so I wouldn’t be able to buy it. But at least I know now that trumpet shape is a very valid option for me.
But I would like your opinion on the matter as well. I’m a bit concerned how freely I’d be able to move in a trumpet shape dress. How comfortable would it be to wear it throughout the entire day? Should I go for a cute and more practical chiffon dress, or a trumpet dress that makes me feel like a queen that could shatter a thousand hearts?
