Wedding Dress Inspirations

Later this week I will be doing wedding dress shopping round 2 as well as a round 3 later next month.

To prepare myself I have checked the websites and selected which dresses I want to try on. Below are brands as well as some specific dresses I want to try on. Feel free to send me suggestions. I will be going to David’s Bridal and The Wedding Shoppe. I would love suggestions! Below are the dresses of choice.

Please feel free to comment or send me links to dresses you want to see on me and I’ll give them a try.

Wedding Dress Shopping

Your wedding dress is something you think about your whole life. Its something women plan from a very young age and let’s be honest its one of the main attractions at any wedding. It’s also one of the first things that needs to be decided before you can plan your flowers, the bridesmaid dresses or the grooms tux.  It is in my opinion the most important, and the most expensive, dress you will buy in your life. Luckily I had excellent help.

The day I went shopping for my wedding dress also happened to be my birthday so it was a double exciting day.  Once awoken by my niece and nephew I was presented with a heartwarming gift from my bridesmaids and mother. A “bridal day” bag which included a Tiffany blue bag, a diamond sash, flowers for my hair and/or dress, sparkly high heel shoes and ring pops. It was the perfect way to start the day out.

So after we were all ready to go we headed out to My Fair Bridal Shop located in Janesville, MN.

We walked into the cute quiet bridal shop and instantly started grabbing our favorites off the racks. Katy and my mom both insisting that I try on at least one that they picked out themselves. Which I did….. I was open to try on whatever dress they wanted but we all know that I have a pretty strong vision already so I knew exactly what kind of dress I wanted. Not every dress was a winner. Below are some of the dresses I tried on that wont be my number one picks but all very beautiful.

It’s not very hard to tell what my family thinks of the dresses I try on since none of us have a very great poker face.

I tried on about a dozen dresses. After the first handful Alli decided that she wanted to help me get dressed which was the cutest thing to watch. You can tell she is so excited by the beautiful sparkly dresses and that she is happy to be part of the dress shopping day. Not every dress had the stamp of approval by all parties but there were two that made the cut. Feel free to comment on which one is your favorite. I still plan to try on more dresses until I’m absolutely sure but opinions are very welcome!

Obviously you don’t get to see me in it yet, have to wait till the big day. If you want to look at the dresses closer they can be found here. Dress #1 & Dress #2. I’ll also be totally honest and say that they look completely different on me then on the mannequin. 🙂


All in all it was a pretty great day!
