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.
