Wedding dresses that is! God, just two years ago I was with my dear and wonderful friends in high school going shopping for prom dresses, and in another two years I will be getting married!!!
It was a very exhausting day considering we only went to two bridal shops and I tried on a total of about 6 dresses I think. Getting into the dress and getting all the underwear on is hard work!
First I picked out a few dresses that were similar to one I saw and I liked in a magazine. (Maggie Sottero "Felicity.") But they just didn't fit me properly, I didn't feel like a bride in them. The last dress I tried on by chance in the first shop; my mom just picked it off the sales rack to let me try on something different. It was very traditional, reminded me of 4 Weddings and a Funeral and all the traditional wedding dresses you see, with the beaded bodice,chapel train I believe, and sleeves that were pretty short (kind of like cap sleeves but a bit longer - if that makes sense.) It fit me really well and was the most flattering from the first store. We put it on hold until next weekend (the longest they would hold it as it was on sale :( )
We found another shop and I tried on two dresses in there. The first was nice but didn't fit properly and the straps on it were a bit dodgy (I don't think it originally had straps and they just had just sewn them on, they were very thin spaghetti straps. The second was very WOW. Silver and white. The bodice was all silver beading with sleeves that were close between thick beaded straps and cap sleeves. The skirt was very poofy - I think it was tulle (sp?) with silver embroidery all through it and the hem of it was silver beading in a similar pattern to the neckline. The neckline was kind of a sweetheart neckline (which was similar to the good fitting one in the other store.) I liked it, felt very glamourous, but it might have been a bit too much for me.
I'm really exhausted. Couldn't take any pictures, I brought my digital camera but the batteries in it were dead, even though I thought they were charged!! ARGH.
Going back to try on the dress from the first shop next weekend so will take pics of it then, even though I probably won't get it. I don't want to get something too soon and then change my mind completely!!
