Wedding Fever

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Hi readers!

One of my close friends Kerre is getting hitched this Summer and I can't help love looking at wedding dresses again. I was lucky enough to be asked to be a bridesmaid in her wedding and go view her wedding dress fitting happening today. (She's having her J-Crew gown customized which is rad)

I was married last April and it seems that it was just yesterday I was shopping for my own wedding dress. I had the dilemma of Vera Wang starting to design for David's Bridal around the time of my wedding and falling in love with a huge Tulle dress that was $1,050 and my dad flipped over the price. Needless to say I didn't end up getting said dress but did get one I loved as much.

For my readers planning their weddings on a budget here are a few dresses/accessories I love and might help you decide what to wear. I had a huge wedding close to 300 people so it had to be on a budget with a lot of things so I didn't have crazy debt afterwards. Unless you have a crazy obsession with a certain designer and coveting that name-tag on your back I say just get a dress that you love. Finally, I wasn't that excited about going into a "bridal shop" but it was fun to try on so many different dresses. I ended up picking a different one from David's Bridal online outlet that I didn't try on but it only ended up costing $299.00 and it was totally worth it. (I am not a paid sponsor for David's Bridal btw)
Bridesmaid Dresses: David's Bridal
Shoes: Target
I'm the one in the wedding dress :)
This is my sister, brother-in-law, her
kids, my husband, and my mom/dad.

How amazing is this dress on sale at David's Bridal right now? If I could do one thing different in my wedding I would have chosen a different/lighter dress to wear to the reception but everything else about our wedding I loved. I bought all my bridal dresses from the outlet too for only $29.99 a piece! That was a crazy steal and it all worked out even though one of my best friends found out she was preggo half-way through planning the wedding.
