i only have a couple minutes to get this posted, but thought i would show you 3 of the dresses i'm considering. yes, they're all from j.crew, and yes, i plan to look elsewhere....maybe. but i love their dresses! and i definitely - definitely - am not spending the requisite $3000 dollars on a wedding dress! here's my thoughts on each:
1.) the Goddess
i like this dress, but out of the 3, i think it's my least favorite. now - i am not your typical bride who doesn't tell the groom anything about the dress. i love Brad's opinions, especially on fashion! so while in the end i won't tell him the actual dress that i pick, i will get his opinions on the ones that i like. and out of these 3 he liked this one the best, surprisingly. it's very reasonably priced, and i like flowy-ness of it. however, it's so casual that i'm not sure what my bridesmaids would wear?
2.) the Sabine
i go back and forth about this dress. some days i look at it and love it, and other days i'm hesitant cause it's so simple. but i also know that i want to have really pretty accessories on the wedding day, whether it's a pretty necklace/earrings, or a flower in my hair...out of these 3 dresses, this one seems like the most wedding-y.
3.) the Whitney
can i just say, i love this dress? i love it. however, it seems more suitable for a beach wedding, and again, what would my bridesmaids wear if i'm so casual? my best friend says that this dress reminds her most of me. again, also very reasonably priced.
so, there you go! i still want to go wedding dress shopping, and there's a bridal store in St.Paul, MN that's having a sample gown sale this weekend. so who knows??
by the way - the date that Brad and i are looking at this first or second weekend in August (this year!) it's a little contingent on the availability of churches, though, so we'll see!
have a great Monday! :)
