After postponing it for a few weeks I finally went dress shopping with my best friend who is also my Maid of Honor. I am so thankful to have her pushing me becuase it takes about 3 to 5 months to recieve your wedding dress once its been ordered. I had no idea but I'm glad I'm looking now with out being on a time crunch. We went to David's Bridal and I was so overwhelemed with all the dresses I had at my disposal. I figured out one thing very quickly, I don't want a white dress because it's almost too blinding for my eyes. I really like the look of ivory because it's very soft and pretty, plus you can't really tell it's not white until you put it next to a white dress. I was very drawn to off the shoulder dresses and my best friend suggested I go with a mermaid cut which flattered my figure perfectly. I did get a little discourged looking at the iPhone pictures we had taken earlier of all the wedding dresses because they didn't look as magnificent as they did in person. I am all about pictures so if it doesn't look great in a picture I don't want it. I will be going back to David's Bridal next week to make sure I look at every single dress before I make my decision. I would really love any advice from anyone who has already gone through this because I feel a little lost. I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

XO,
Shirley

  1. I wish you all the best for your wedding dress search. I´m sure you´ll find one which suits you perfectly and will look amazing on you! One of my friends will marry in August and her dress is also not white. It´s more creamy-white and it looks gorgeous. I think the tan is prettier in a dress like this :)
    I think you´ll know YOUR dress in the moment you wear it for the very first time ♥
    Lots of love from Germany

    First : I'm so happy for you ! Congratulations, and I truly wish you all the happiness in the world ! Don't worry, I'm sure you will find THE dress, but as most of all the unique and perfect things, it takes time to find it. But I'm sure you'll find one and look magnificent in both reality and photos. And don't forget that the beautiful smile you will have will definitely brighten everything !

    Talking about your outfit, I told you : Gosh I'm in love ! Haha, it's so chic, yet playful. The photo where you are sitting is just "wow", by the way ! You're really beautiful. :)

    I love black and blue, I think it's a perfect match that is timeless. It works for you ! The skirt is definitely one of those pieces that make people stare with admiration. I love your style !

    Thanks again for being such a sweetheart and have a beautiful day. Once again, congratulations to you and your soulmate ! May you be happy. :)

  14. Good luck with your search. I suppose if it doesn't turn out right on your phone it isn't the end of the world. Don't forget lighting within the store which isn't always the best, plus you'll have a great photographer on hand on the day who'll capture it more intimately than a cell can!

    1. Haha Sonia thanks for reminding me that phones don't take great pictures and the lighting was not meant for a photo shoot. I'm sure I will know the right dress once I put it on.

  17. What i don't realize is actually how you're no longer actually
    a lot more smartly-favored than you might be right now.
    Yoou are very intelligent. You know thus
    considerably on thee subject of this matter, produced me in my view consider it
    from a lot of numerous angles. Its like men and
    women are not involved except it's one thing to do with Girl gaga!
    Your own stuffs excellent. At all times take care of
    it up!

  18. I know this iif off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what aall is
    needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive.

    Any tips oor advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
