Wedding Dress Time

I have kind of been avoiding this post just because my thoughts are all over the place with this one. However, it is one of the MOST important parts of the wedding. My thoughts are all over the place just because, I don't know what will look good especially closer to the time of the wedding. Since I'm losing weight (down 18 pounds as of last Saturday. Thank you!) I don't know what will look good.

I have only been to one bridal shop. I tried on 3 dresses and I almost felt pressured into buying this gown that I loved. When I first got there I told the lady "I will not be buying a dress today" and she said that is totally fine. What do ya know, an hour later she tried to get me to buy it. It was a A-Line gown that was very plain and was the pick-up style dress. Hard to explain without a picture.

On to the dresses. I was looking online and wanted to find a dress that would go along with the outdoor, southern wedding "theme". Normally I am the plain jane, simple type of person. However, looking at wedding dresses may have changed my mind. I also have to keep in mind that I have an extremely LOW, but reasonable, budget. I want to stay under $300.00. I would love to stay under $200.00 but wedding dresses that cheap are few and far between (not impossible to find but harder!).

Dress Number 1.
I really love this! Not one of my favorites but I do love this dress. Since the colors of the wedding will be yellow and brown, maybe the bow around the waist can be brown. The lace is also one of my favorites. Lave just says "southern charm" to me. However I don't want to look like a big doily on my wedding day.

Dress Number 2.
I really like this one because it is simple. However, it is really "flowy" so I don't know what it would look like on my Honky Tonk Badonkadonk. But since I'm losing weight, ya never know.

Dress Number 3.
I love this one! It is simple and yet has some detail at the top along with some bling! Again, I'm a little skeptical about the flowy waist.

Dress Number 4.
This one is my favorite so far! The only thing that I am not sure about is the sweetheart neckline. I'm pretty sure it should be fine but I would have to go to a bridal shop to try on something with sweetheart top. But aside from that this one is just perfect. Simple, elegant, and just beautiful!!

Dress Number 5.
I like how this one is flowy (what is it with me and this word?) so it goes well with an outdoor wedding. Yet, it also has bling on the top and makes the whole thing look elegant.

Dress Number 6.
Alright. I really don't know what I want to say about this one. I like the unique top. Other than that It just doesn't look like a wedding dress. It would also make me look, oh I don't know, about 20 month pregnant!!

Dress Number 7.
CUTENESS!!! I love the rosettes (I think that is what they are called) on the top. I mean how many people do you know that had that at their wedding!

Dress Number 8.
Too flowy but you get the idea!

Dress Number 9.
You can't really see her dress but It is simple and pretty. I just love this whole wedding party!

Dress Number 10.

I love her dress!! I want something exactly like it maybe not such a huge embellishment around the waist but I really like it!

(Dresses 1-4 came from Helena Bridal online and the rest are just Google images.)

So you get the big picture on what I like, right? Or was I all over the place? Any of these your favorites? Is my budget too low? Has anyone bought a wedding dress online? If so, how did that work for you?

  1. Katie,
    Congrats on the weight loss! When I was getting married, which wasn’t long ago, I think I gained the entire engagement period :-\ When I was dress shopping I was so confused and didn’t have any family help (because we just moved across the country- perfect timing, right?!) I found this book at a used bookstore and it helped me tremendously. It's by the same bridal store from the show “Say Yes to the Dress”. I read it in a day. There are a lot of pictures and things to learn about what styles look best on what body types, which was super helpful for me. It was so helpful just to learn about all the options I didn’t even know existed (like types of sleeves, what the length of the veil mean, blah blah blah). I read this before going into a bridal store, and I was in and out within 2 hours. This book helped me figure out what I wanted and how I could fit it into my budget. I loved my dress (I wish I could wear it every day, but I’m scared people will think I’m crazy lol) I have given this book as a gift to several newly engaged girl friends and they have loved it too. I hope this helps if you decide to get it. Happy dress shopping!

  2. Thank you so much! I love that show!!! They have a Kleinfeld's in Atlanta but their prices are for sure up there! I will definitely check this book out and see what it has to say!
