{M+D} THE Dress

I have a confession. I have not been THAT in to finding my wedding dress. Yes, it will be my most photographed article of clothing I ever wear, and I want to love it, but I don't spend hours looking at dresses online. I don't want a HUGE Cinderella dress. I don't want to be on Say Yes to the Dress. I do, however, want to say "yes" to some dress at some time.

In my day-to-day life, I am not what I would call a weird dresser. I wear jeans and t-shirts most of the time, and usually they are pretty plain. Most of my wardrobe comes from such out-there places as J-Crew and Ann Taylor Loft, but when I put on a really dressy dress, it usually is a little out there. Examples:
Prom, Junior Year
Prom, Sophomore Year

Yes, I wore a fire colored dress with millions of sequins and a black and white dress (with an awesome back & a mermaid bottom) and gloves. Who was I? I have no idea, but I loved those dresses! It was fun being different. Now, I am not saying that I want to wear bright orange on my wedding day, but I just don't want to be too traditional. I want something I can actually move in, something that is comfortable to dance in, something that is elegant but still fun (remember my wedding planning words!) and something that is beautiful. So without further embarrassment with high school photos, here are my dress inspirations!

Any favorites? Any other ideas? Hopefully, we will go dress shopping soon- perhaps that will make me catch the wedding dress bug, or at least give me an idea of what I want!

  1. check out Pronovias White One-- a range of modern to traditional- they have a style #411(Tigris) that goes along with the mermaid--the majority of their gowns aren't overly embellished which lets you add your own bling, so to speak--or stay simple
