WEDDING. DRESS. PICTURES.
These are from David’s Bridal so I guess this is a free plug for them. Now, way back after I got engaged in January, I pretty much immediately went on their site to look at dresses. I’ve got this idea in my head that I want a dress with off the shoulder straps, kind of like Belle’s dress in Beauty and the Beast. Yeah, I went there.
All I know is, I really, really really don’t want a strapless dress. I don’t. That’s too many pull ups and push ups to get my arms to look okay to stand alone. Just, no. Also, everybody’s doing it. I despise that. I’m a rebel.
This is a dress I found online. I love it. It’s also relatively cheap. I had a tiny sliver of hope that just by walking into David’s Bridal, I could magically find this dress and try it on. Unfortunately, they didn’t have it. Bummer.
So these are the dresses I tried on.
I loved this dress. I tried on one before that I thought was plain, so my saleswoman went and got this one. It has the longest train in their collection, which I enjoy. It’s also sparkly. Sparkle sparkle.
This is the same dress with a jacket. I don’t know if I’m sold on the jacket, mostly because it was itchy.
I apologize for my camera’s lack of color sense. So this dress was supposed to be ivory because I wanted to see if I like the color on me. But after I put it on, the saleswoman was like “Whoops! That’s off-white.” Same diff? I don’t know. Anyway, since my camera doesn’t understand color, then it doesn’t make a bit of difference.
This dress is less lacy and more bustle-y and sparkly. I like the waist area on dress #1 more, but I liked this one because it’s a PRINCESS DRESS. hee.
Anyway, it was a lot of fun. I love playing dress-up. I’m going to a bridal exhibit at the Cincinnati Art Museum on Friday, then Saturday I’m actually going to a bridal show. Can my wedding be this summer?
