Wedding Edition: My Dress

Hello hello!

Here is another Wedding Edition Post!

If you missed my others:

So this one is all about the dress! I think every little girl dreams of THAT dress. However, I was not that “type of girl”. I was so excited to start looking, but never really thought about my dress until I became engaged. So I got right to it! I checked out Pinterest, wedding dress stores online and through magazines.

I made our first appointment at a local bridal shop, Wendy’s. I got all of my pictures and notes together, and felt really prepared.

After much research I realized I wanted vintage, lace and not white. I wanted the dress to be similar to my ring, which was also had a vintage feel.




So with pictures and notes in hand we were off!

So as you can see, I love the lace, cream and vintage! Well just a little spoiler, this is nothing I went with!

It is so funny because I really thought these were the dresses that I loved! When I started to try them on, I hated them! They were beautiful gowns, but they did not look well on me at all!

I was so overwhelmed that I just wanted to get out of Wendy’s, regroup, and go to our next appointment at Alfred Angelo.

I am so glad we did this, it really helped me and our wedding gown specialist really helped narrow down what I was looking for. I wanted an a-line, princesses. This is what I felt most comfortable in and this style of dress really showed the theme of the wedding the best.

I also LOVED Alfred Angelo because of one tiny aspect… they have the Disney Wedding Gown Collection!!!!!!!!!

You know how big of  fans B and I are of Disney, and I knew that they carried the collection, so of course I had to try them on!

At the store I only tried on the Disney line, the dresses were perfect  They fit my personality and theme of the wedding beyond words. I tried on all the dresses. I am not ashamed to admit that I wanted to at least try them on even if they were not the look I was looking for!

I truly loved all of these, but when it came down to decide…









This my dear friends is the Cinderella, Disney Bridal Dress. 

After a long day of trying on dresses, I finally found my dream dress. I was so excited to wear this dress down the aile, to tell B the story about the dress, and to tell him it was a Disney Cinderella dress!!!

I felt like such a princesses on my wedding day. I was in my dream wedding dress, walking down the aile to my dream man.
