Cause the Bride Can't be Naked: Initial Inspiration

Well, I guess you could be but I'd rather make a splash in a dress than in my birthday suit.

I'll tell you a secret, I'm the type of girly girl that loves to wear dresses. I try to avoid pants at all costs and for a dress wearer there is none more special than your wedding dress.

Wedding dresses are all so lovely, and in my initial search I found two that I love love loved. Like loved so much I just knew I had to have one for my wedding day.

Let me introduce you...

Can you believe how yummy this dress is? I found this dress on face book and couldn't stop showing it to everyone. I love that the layered fabric is two colors and how feminine yet sexy it is. Unfortunately you can only buy some of this gorgeousness for $10,000+ and while I hadn't discussed budget with my parents I had a feeling this was way over it.

Besides drooling over Toulouse I spent a lot of time folding down pages that held Vera Wang's Diana. Talk about gorgeousness! I knew this would be my dress, I could imagine floating down the aisle and into my reception in this beauty. Plus it was a Vera Wang and can you get any more bridal than that?

My mom is convinced that this dress would overwhelm me (considering I'm only 5' 2 1/2") and once again the nasty "B" word came up. There is no way a budget bride can wear a current season's Vera Wang.
PS I do not NOT understand why they put such a light dress on such a pasty girl in front of a white wall, you loose all of the detail!

I set these two aside and starting tearing through wedding magazines searching for my dress.

What is your dream dress?


  1. Love these dresses! I found my dream dress at a sample sale. It is a St. Pucchi gown that is not even from last season. It is still on their website and I got it for a fraction of the cost. I highly recommend sample sales!

    PS I am enjoying following your blog and would love if you could follow mine too. I am a brand new blogger.

  2. My dress is from Casablanca Bridal. I am a frequent dress wearer too and loved loved loved the lace, details, and style of Casablanca. Not to meantion the price
