Wedding Wednesday - THE Dress

Next week is Spring Break and my mom, sister and Grannie are all making the trip down to Houston to go dress shopping with me! 

It has been so hard to hold off and wait for them to go and do this, but I knew I wanted those special ladies in my life here with me when I tried on dresses. 

So today I wanted to share with y'all kind of what I have in mind for dresses. 

I am not really dead set on any style. I know I might get to the shop and totally change my mind once I start trying them on and that's ok with me!

So, just by looking at pictures, I can tell you I'd like to have flowy rather than poofy, one strap or halter rather than strapless and a colored sash rather than jewels or sparkles. 

Here are some that I have in mind...

 I want to keep the price very low on the dress because we will be doing a trash the dress session the day after the wedding but I also want to find THE dress, not just something I sort of like. So, I'm keeping an open mind :)

Which do you like best?
When you tried on dresses how did you know it was "the one?"

I like #3 and #7

I got my dress on a whim. I tried on about 10 dresses or so. I ended up buying the first dress that I tried on. I just kep going back to it. Plus it was a two piece, so I could have a dress for the reception. Perfect for the wedding. I bought it and took it home with me that night.

I love them all! I love the halter look and the one-shoulder with the accents like a greek goddess! But my fave is #2! Hands down! LOVE!

Lacey said...

So exciting! I love the one shoulder dresses, especially that last one, very beachy :) I hope you have a great time shopping with your family, and find the dress of your dreams! I can't wait to see what you pick!

Ashlee Miller said...

Love your dress choices! I tried on some similar dresses when we went to look! You'll be stunning and I can't wait to see what you picked.

Syndal said...

yay sooo exciting! I love the second one and the allure bridals one..I obsessed about that one for a while!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

pretty! I love all these styles!! At least going into shopping for the dress you already have an idea of what you want :)

Jodi Dwyer said...

It is so special that you can have your family with you when you try on wedding dresses. I'm sure you will have an amazing day! Good luck finding the one!

Celia said...

I think the 2nd one and the last one are my faves! =) Also, think about how you want to wear your hair when thinking about the dress you will purchase.

I JUST bought my dress this past weekend, I knew it was the one because when I looked up into the mirror and saw myself in my dress my face started to glow, and it was the most genuine smile that was on my face. I looked over to my girls and my Mom and their faces said it all.

Good luck!!!! & have fun!!!

Holly said...

I love them all! Have fun choosing, it's an amazing experience :)

I knew it was "the one" once I walked out and saw myself in the mirror. It was everything I ever imagined, and the tears started right away :)

Alex said...

ahhh this is so exciting!! A friend of mine recently went dress shopping, and it sounded like so much fun. I love that you're doing a trash the dress. I know someone who got married in Cancun then did the same thing the next day, and the pictures were GORGEOUS.

Kindra said...

I have my eye on one just like the 3rd one :)

Erin said...

I LOVE the first dress!!!

My best tip for dress shopping is that its ok to buy the first dress you try on just be sure to try on more than that one! I tried on ten and ended up getting the first one we tried. And for real, Davids Bridal, amazing dresses at great price. I was beyond happy with the dress we got!

Can't wait to see what you choose!

Katie said...

So cute! I've been liking my favorites that you pin on Pinterest! :-)

Nichole said...

The second one is my absolute FAVE!! I spent a little under 1k on my dress. I thought that was a lot! But compared to everyone else I know, it was cheap. Not sure your dress budget but I got mine at Alfred Angelos. I love trash the dress sessions!

Sarah-Life is what you make it said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE 1 and 2!

Lyndsay said...

Dress shopping is the best! Enjoy every moment. It's great that you have your family coming down to go with you. When I was shopping for mine, I had "the moment" when I knew it was the one. :)

Vicki said...

I love them all! I seriously think we have very similiar wedding dress taste lol :)

Maura said...

AHHH you're going shopping for your WEDDING DRESS!! so excited for you!!!

Emily said...

ah I cannot pick a favorite, but I do really love the one that is 3rd from the bottom and really love the simplicity of the 3rd one!

Texas Tanners said...

Oh my gosh....how do you choose?! I love them all! I will say 1 & 2 did stand out to me!! Can't wait to hear how shopping goes!
