If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I finally started shopping around for wedding dresses. I've avoided it for so long because the whole process completely overwhelms me. You'd think I'd be over the moon trying on beautiful gowns and playing dress-up. So many of us have dreamed about the perfect dress for that momentous day. I think I did too when I was a little girl, but then I let the fantasy slip away as I became older and actually realized how expensive weddings are. But I have to admit that when I was trying on one particular dress, a feeling came over me that I can't even describe. It was surreal. I wanted so badly to take pictures, but there was a strict no photography rule in the showroom my mom and I visited. The dress that made my heart flutter was gorgeous, and perfect for the beach wedding my fiance and I are planning. I'm going to keep looking around, but it is a strong contender. Our official date is September 21st of this year :)

Just to give you an idea of some dresses I love:











This would be so adorable for a bachelorette!

  2. I love, love, love the dress with the blue couch and the one right below it! If I were to redo my wedding I would of went with a lace shoulder at a tea length....I didn't get to pick out my dress since my mom paid it was up to her. I would of loved to gone to Vegas and gotten married by Elvis (how much fun would that be). Oh well there are always wedding renewals!

  7. These dresses are gorgeous Noelle! I especially love the second one. I'm a fan of off-white/champagne/ivory dresses vs white. Can't wait to see more wedding deets :)

    I know what you mean about cost of weddings. My hubby and I paid for our own wedding and we were both 25 at the time so it was hard but we managed it :) It took a lot of saving before and lotsa paying back after.... My parents did buy my dress, paid for the open bar and got me a platinum jewelry set for which I was thankful.

    1. Yes, getting married at 25 is quite overwelming in terms of cost! That's great your parents could help a bit. My mom is definitely helping us, Thank God :) We are trying to keep costs down and be as low key as possible, and even so, it's still so expensive! I hope everything comes together though. *Fingers Crossed*

  10. I think the sixth dress would be perfect. I'd like to see you show off your figure. I like that the waist has that extra detail.

    1. I do love that dress as well. I love them all! I am definitely going for more form fitting. That's not really like me as I normally like to diminish my lower half as much as possible, but I think because I'm short, form fitting is the way to go. Thank you for your feedback :)
