Choosing a wedding dress: What I wore to my fairytale wedding

Choosing a wedding dress

Choosing a wedding dress can be so overwhelming and exciting all at the same time. There are a lot of emotions surrounding the wedding dress. There is just something so magical about a woman wearing a wedding dress and walking down the aisle to her soon-to-be husband. Laying eyes on the bride for the first time is my absolute favorite part of every wedding. I also like to look back and take a peek at the groom to see his reaction.

I recently was married in August and remember all the moments leading up to the wedding dress. I went to two different stores and tried on a dozen different dresses. There is really no correct way to do it or set reaction you are supposed to have when you try on your dress! I did not cry when I found my dress but I loved the way it made me feel.

The thoughts in my mind were “wow, this is the dress Bryan is going to see me in for the first time as his wife.” It was a really special moment. I was not one of those girls who brought in pictures to show the bridal consultant what I wanted. My goal was to be in the moment and let my fashion instincts guide me. After trying several dresses on, I knew that I wanted a dress that made a statement. While the simple dresses are elegant that’s just not who I am. I needed a dress that reflected me, and simple isn’t what I would call myself lol.

Choosing a wedding dress

I decided to go with the veil over my face as I walked down the aisle because I wanted the DRAMA. My parents removed the veil from my face right before giving me away. It was all the drama and magic that I envisioned.

My suggestion to a new Bride looking for her wedding dress: bring the people with you who you trust and won’t stress you out when looking for a dress. Trying on dresses is actually a workout! The dresses are heavy so make sure you drink water. Get the dress YOU LOVE. This is the dress you will have in all your photos for the rest of your life, don’t let family and friends steer you from getting the dress of your dreams. Have fun! Wedding dress shopping is one of the best parts of wedding planning!!

xoxo,
