Dress shopping

Last weekend I went to try on wedding dresses for the first time. I must have tried on about 20 dresses in total at 2 different shops. The first dress I tried on was Annuska by Augusta Jones which I mentioned liking here. I have to say when I tried the dress on I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would. I tried on a variety of other styles and was surprised to find that the majority of shapes suited me. Although I liked a few of the dresses I tried on, none of them really felt like the one or any where near. Confusingly I real liked this one by esscense when I had it on in the shop the most but when I got home and looked back at the pictures I didn’t like it as much.

I tried this dress by Paloma Blanca on straight after the essense dress and in the shop I thought I prefered the figure hugging shape on but on the pictures I really like the shape of this one. I also really like the modern simple styling on this dress but its more than I really one to spend on a dress mainly because it is made in silk. Irrespective of the cost I don’t think I want a silk dress as the shop assistant was telling me its quiet delicate and especially with having to transport it to Italy I worry about it getting damaged. We’ve booked to go to another couple of shops in a couple of weekends time so I plan to go with an open mind again and try on more dresses. There is still plenty of time to find the dress and I did learn a few things about what I do and don’t like (mainly about what I don’t like, lace, too much beading and at the moment I’m not sure I like veils) and I had a fun girly afternoon with my mum and the grooms mum and sister.
