Here Comes the Bride...

I purchased my wedding dress this last weekend!!!
It is SUCH a huge relief!! I was starting to feel like I was running out of time as far as that was concerned... Three of my girls went with me to David's Bridal in El Paso, Texas and we got it done! :)

Completed Task Buy your dress -- narrow down your options and make a final decision. 

Wedding dress shopping was a BLAST!!
Our consultant was SO helpful and she spent the entire time helping us!
And I really felt like the BRIDE. :)

David's Bridal is awesome because you can go online beforehand, pick out a few dresses that you like and then save them to your favorites... Then when you get to the shop, they just go get them for you and you try them on. If there's something else along the lines of what you picked they'll bring those too! It made the whole process SO easy!!!

So here's a few pictures the girls took of some of the dresses that I tried on...
 I'll warn you my face is goofy in EVERY single one.. haha!!
What?!? I was enjoying the process.... Funny faces and dance moves were a MUST! ;)

So one of these may or may not be the dress I chose... *Tease, tease*
And I'm not telling... neither are my girl's... Got that girls!?! ;)

Mr. M doesn't read this anyway... but in the off chance that he does... It's a secret! :)

Things I'm taking away from this process...

1. I need to work on my arms!!! Any arm workout suggestions for a girl that sits at a desk ALL day long??
2. I spent a little more than I wanted, but you have to be open to the fact that the exact style of dress that you really want may not cost what you thought it would...
3. I LOVE my dress and I am SO excited to put it on again! I sent it right home with my sister, Kayli, so that Mr. M wouldn't be tempted to peek! Good thing too, 'cause the first thing he said was, "Where's you're dress? I wanna see it." I informed him that was BAD luck... And his reply... "It doesn't count if you're not IN it!" Pretty sure it does... But we're not gonna chance it regardless... heehee!!
4. The whole time everyone kept asking me how I am going to wear my hair... Now I know what to work on next!! :)

P.S. I bought my veil too! And the undergarments... Post on that later!

they are all lovely, kassi!

Kayli said...

haha mums the word. And I kind of love those pictures, would it be weird if I framed a bunch of pictures of just you and put them in my house when I'm older? I'm glad I'm such a stinky photographer, your weird faces are my favorite.

Love you! :)

p.s... there's a reason I was so excited about bringing it home. It has a special hook in MY closet and every now and then I sneak a peek and give it some love for you :)

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! One of those dresses is mine!!!!!!! Wouldn't that be hilarious if it was the same one!!!

Jana said...

Trying on dresses was really fun!

~Lisa said...

They're all so pretty! My advice: try on tons before you make your choice. Go to every bridal store in your area that you possibly can because this only happens once! :)

I'm visiting from FTLOB! www.joyfuljones.com

My favorite is the top far right though, they all look great on you! How fun!

bethani said...

trying on dresses was so stressful and so fun! I'm glad I found mine as quickly as I did. Don't worry about goofy faces, I was the same way.

My favorites - top right and bottom right. Can't wait to see which you picked!! ♥

Hi, Just found your blog via FTLOB. I am not too sure when you are getting married (I need to snoop a few more posts)...If you have time, look for some pole fitness classes. They are so much fun and they do an amazing job on defining arms and shoulders! I have a picture of me doing it on my blog...I think it is the one called "not just a hockey wife"..anyhow, thought I would share. I am now a follower, as although I am married, I am always a sucker for those planning a wedding.

Cheers,

I really like them all! But my favorite is the one...strapless sweet heart neckline. You are going to be Beautiful in the one you chose.Thanks for sharing! I makes everyone excited for you!
