Playing Dress Up!

I have now been dress shopping a total of three times at three different stores and have found dresses that I love at every single one of them.  So what's the problem you might ask?  They are all so entirely different from each other that it is hard to choose!  One is fitted and all lace, the other is Grecian inspired draping of tulle and silk, another is a soft tulle ball gown with an empire waist, and lastly, one dress is made entirely from small intricate beading with cap sleeves.  I thought I would have that, "Oh My God! This is my dress!" moment, (everyone else has had that while shopping with me) but I'm realizing I may be a bit too practical for tears.  My latest wedding dress problem is time.  Having now moved the wedding up to November, I need a dress in less than three months (with alterations)! Yikes!

So, while I'm mulling over the millions of choices I have, I thought I'd share with you some of my favorites from the Jenny Packham Spring/Summer 2011 collection.  I'm sure these aren't new to anyone in the wedding world but I just can't get enough of her dreamy, ethereal, & romantic gowns.  I tried on the top right dress, Eden, and looooooved it (although it was hard to tell what it would look like on me since it was a sample size 10).  Which is your favorite?  Any other favorite dress designers?  Did you have that "This is my dress!" moment?  Any tips for taking the plunge with a dress?

Oh sweetheart, I think when a girl is a gorgeous as you are, finding The Dress is so much harder than you'd think! Consider your venue, the cake, the invitations and other details-it'll help you decide what the style of your dress should be, because let's face it-they're all going to look effing phenomenal on you.

Wow! Those dresses are gorgeous! I think I love #3 the most. It's a bit different than the more traditional dresses, and I absolutely adore the color. You're going to look absolutely gorgeous! Kim, xo
