My Wedding Dress

Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is hosting a blog carnival where you showcase your wedding dress (or your dream wedding dress). Head on over to her blog if you would like to participate!

I loooove my wedding dress and I don't think I have ever talked about buying it, so of course I want to share my story and some photos with all of you.

I went dress shopping the weekend we booked the reception site (I was all excited about wedding planning and my mom was visiting from NY), so we went to the one bridal shop in the town where we were married. When I walked into the shop I told the ladies that I did not want anything with lace, buttons, or stitching. That pretty much eliminated 90% of the dresses in the store, but they were able to find a few that I agreed to try on.

The first dress I tried on I had to have. It fit perfect, was kind of different while still looking like a wedding dress, and made me feel amazing. I was ready to walk out of the store with the dress, but the ladies convinced me to try on a few others, just in case. After spending less than 5 minutes total in the 3 or 4 other dresses I tried on, I still knew the first dress was "the one". This may seem strange, but I am very much that kind of shopper. I find something I like, and if it looks good I take it. I don't like browsing and get sick of shopping very quickly.

So, I am the girl that bought the first wedding dress she tried on! Here it is...



You can see more wedding pictures here!

Let me know if you participate in the blog carnival! I want to see all of your dresses too!

  14. Your dress is beautiful! I bought the dress that I had ripped out of In Style magazine a few years before I even met my husband. Does that make you feel better about buying the first dress? :)

  15. dress is amazing! bought the first dress i tried on also, but for a different reason. 32 years ago and in a small town, didn't have much of a choice, didn't see any others so it was beautiful to me!
