The dress wore me!!

Recommended Posts

So I started the hunt for a wedding dress. All I know is that I am not wearing white. Not one women in my family wore white so I figure it's not our tradition and I don't even look good in white so I am picking a colour I look good in. My sister (MOH) and a bridesmaid went out and power shopped. I threw on any dress that fit to start to get an idea of what I am looking for. I am not a trendy person or one who dresses up too often. I dress very casually as I run a home day care during the day and don't need to dres up for work. What I found was that most dresses I had on, I got lost in. They were so elaborate and fancy that you can only help but look at the dress and not me in it. Does that sound stupid?? Or egocentrical?

Maybe I am looking for something simple, so people will notice me in it. I usualy don't like being the center of attention and realy hated trying on dresses with everyone staring at me.

I think that is a very cool tradition that no one in your family wears white. I don;t think it's strange that you would not want to be overpowered by a dress on your wedding day. i think everyone is on the hunt for the dress that makes them feel amazing and compliments them as opposed to taking over them. Do you have any pics from the day??

When I first started trying on dresses I felt the same way and I also felt silly felling is this for real (lol) but when I found my dress I just knew it was the one. I think its neat your not going to wear white neither am I!

I hated dresses in white on me too. I looked terrible. I did a soft gold instead. I was nervous at first about the color, but it ended up pretty.

 

I could see certain styles of dresses be a little overwhelming. There are tons of more simplistic dresses. Did you try on any of those?

Try on BM dresses. They often come in tons of colors, including ivory/gold/etc. They are a lot less expsensive if you don't want the traditional white dress anyway. Good luck!

Saraece,

I know exactly what you mean. When I started the quest for my dress, I would look at other girls in these insanely elaborate dresses and think, WHY? LOL.

If you don't want something super bride-ish, then don't get it. Find the one that suits you, screams you, IS you. You will find it. Don't give up.

And when you put it on and find yourself smiling in that mirror, you will know it's the one, just like you knew he was the one. There is definitely a moment with a wedding dress.

I can't wait til you experience it! :)
