Wedding Dress Searching

I can't go into this post saying I had a definite "clear" vision of what I wanted but there were some dresses that really inspired me upon going shopping. I also had some criteria that it had to be something that was:
- stylish
- timeless
- glamorous
- and me!

I knew going into the wedding that my vision was "city chic", so not overly country or classic but a nice mix. I really wanted to epitomize a New York bride even if I do live in North Carolina.

I do had to admit that my mom took me shopping before we were engaged so I had a bit of an idea of what I wanted but what I wanted wasn't necessarily what mom wanted, and y'all know from watching "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta" if momma isn't happy, you probably aren't going to be happy either! 

Here are some that I tried that I liked before the engagement that mom was on the fence about.. Excuse any bad appearances..

 Ines di Santo

I was kind of digging on the body hugging style originally but I did try some ballgown-esque dresses that I quite liked:

  Kenneth Poole

With all of those in mind after my first ever stop into a bridal salon when I DID get engaged I had a few more picked out in my mind but I was completely open to trying on anything they had because I knew this was one of the most important decisions of the whole wedding itself and that was SO stressful for me!

I'll be back with a break down of salons and dresses that I tried on that I did like and how I landed with the dress I did.

Happy Monday!

  1. I never liked the ballgown dresses until I tried them on, either! Can't wait to see more pictures of the real deal!
