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.

This is another great wedding featured on style me pretty this week. I was particularly draw to because of the use of the colour purple which is my favorite at the moment. However I also like the styles of all the wedding party and more than that when you read the post on style me pretty you later find the romantic story of how the wedding photographer’s boyfriend proposed to her in Paris whilst shooting the couples “day after shoot”! There are lots more stunning photographs and you can read the full story here, here and here on Stacy Reeves photography as well as on style me pretty.

I thought I would share my first wedding mood board with you all. At the moment I like the idea of deep purple for bridesmaids dresses with white flowers and a purple bouquet for me. I believe hydrangea’s are in season when we plan to get married in Tuscany. I like the bright coloured ones in this picture and also white hydrangea. I’m not so keen on pastel coloured ones.
