Wedding Dress!

So I finally bought a wedding dress. I don't know how I'm going to keep it a secret from my fiancee for a year and a half. I can't keep a secret like that from anyone. It's so sweet and so pretty. While it isn't the first one I picked out, it's a good one. My mom made me try on some pretty ornate ones that I thought were just too complicated for our wedding and for someone who isn't very tall. Now I feel like I can relax and just enjoy picking bridesmaid dresses, flowergirl dresses and things like that. Phew!

I spent a lot of time online looking at The Knot's website. Honestly, the more you have to choose from the harder it gets. There were dresses I liked on The Knot, but not every boutique carries that line, or if they carry the line, not that specific dress....it gets complicated. I found that going in person and seeing things and trying them on worked best for me. I did get it at David's Bridal. I didn't want to spend tons of money on a dress and I didn't. However, I don't think they have any bridesmaid dresses I want so far. They do have some cute flower girl ones though.

So my advice is not to drive yourself too crazy by looking online at dresses. I think I found a happy medium by looking at individual boutiques and then going in person to check out dresses. It feels better than taking a risk by ordering one without seeing it in person first.
