Wedding Planning: Dresses

I can't believe that in two days, we will be 6 months away from our wedding date! That is super exciting, and a little bit scary. I am a chronic procrastinator. I love the idea of being on top of everything, and I always am. I take notes, draw up designs, or prep whatever it is I'm working on, but chances are you can find me hours before whatever deadline I have working hard to complete the task. I don't know why I do this, but I do know that I don't want this to happen in regards to our wedding! I do not want to be stressed the day of, or even weeks before! (No bride + groom really want to be stressed, do they?)

So when it came to the dress, I knew I wanted to have it in my hands way before the wedding date. To leave room for alterations, freak accidents, and anything else that can/will go wrong. Truthfully, I had been stalking a dress on pinterest long before Bean and I got engaged. My heart has been set on this dress, and this one alone. I've searched online for one just like it, searched stores locally and in the town our wedding will be held at. I even went with my mom and Angela last week to try on dresses. Just to reassure myself that no other dress + style would compare. The only thing holding me back from hitting the "purchase" button (like yesterday) is that there are no refunds. NO REFUNDS. While in my heart, I am 110% certain this is the dress for me, my mind is having a hard time paying such a hefty price for something that I cannot return if something happens. I've pretty much talked myself into taking the risk, because it's what I love, and I can't find it anywhere else. I thought it would be fun to share a few of the other dresses I was seriously considering!

I obviously have a very persistent style I am looking for. Knee/Tea length, lace, 50's inspired. What I especially like about this dress is that you can add 3/4 th sleeves; which I will be doing! And, you can add pockets. I am a firm believer that pockets make any dress that much better. If you have any experience with purchasing a wedding dress online, or know someone who does, I'd love to hear from you. Is this the smartest thing to do? I have butterflies, so I think it is! XO.


  1. I love the second one! It reminds me of the dress my friend wore at her wedding and it was so beautiful.

    The commitment to your dress is risky, but I mean, it sounds like you already know it's the one and if there's anything I learned from Say Yes to the Dress, is it's you know when the dress is yours!

    And yes, my title was because of the band! I meant to write about it because they (well, he, Evan) played an acoustic set in my friends living room the night before and it was amazing and wonderful. I always get so excited when other bloggers have good taste in music.

  2. Hey! I love all of these dresses! It's so much like the style I wanted for my own. I even had bhldn gown (dress c) bookmarked when I was wedding planning! You have good taste in my opinion :) I think if you've found the right dress and it happens to be online, you should go for it. It's beautiful.

    Also, I wanted to thank you for the comment on my blog! It actually made my day. I've been working to make my site something people would actually want read, and to hear that directly from someone was just awesome. I've enjoyed reading through your blog. How was Take Shelter? I saw the trailer awhile ago, and still really want to see it!
