Wedding + Dress Inspiration

I booked my first wedding dress appointment! It’s not until May but talk about a reason to workout everyday until then. During breakfast with my maid of honor over the weekend, I lamented that I had no idea what I wanted, but she pointed out I do even though I’m being indecisive.

That being said, I thought I would round up some wedding dress inspiration. Matt and I are looking to have an elegant and classic wedding. I love lace, but I don’t want a huge lace dress. Well enough with my babbling, here are some pretty dresses!


Wedding Dress


For my body type a-line is probably best other than ball gown. Mermaid dresses make me question if I can walk. I think that I want something that is sweet, and maybe a little more on the conservative side. Mostly I’m concerned about not being able to use the bathroom. (It’s weird but it’s what I think of.)

Also, I am  a little  really nervous about spilling something on my wedding dress. We are getting married in the fall, but I’m not too worried about being cold because 1. I’m always cold unless under a heated blanket or outside in the sun with 85 degree weather and 2. shawls make the cutest gifts so I can just wear that, or ya know Matt’s tux jacket. I did look at non-traditional colors but to be honest it just didn’t appeal to me, and Matt is a pretty traditional guy (in the best sense) so he would probably not appreciate it. While some might not agree with the fact that I’m factoring his tastes into the dress, I’ve been pretty stubborn about this being his wedding too and he needs to have some say in it, even if it’s “no pink, not in summer, ceremony in a church and a white dress.”

What does your dream dress look like?

  • I love A-line dresses. That’s the style that I chose. Mermaid dresses are pretty but I already had wide hips and they emphasized it more. To top it off, I’d probably break my neck walking in it. And ball gowns are gorgeous but all that extra fabric will definitely get hot!

  • Ahhh I love the ones that have the little cap, lace sleeves and the quarter length sleeves. So classic.

  • Love these dresses!
    You are totally on the ball girl.
    I haven’t booked my appointment but am going to call around to some places tomorrow.
    Hopefully they won’t be booked for the weekend that I want to go.

    xoxo, Jenny

  • So the more I look at it, the more obsessed I become with the bottom right look. I have no idea why, it’s not even my style all that much but I am loving it. Can’t wait to hear more about your wedding planning! Congrats on getting that first appointment made! xx Merisa | Monogrammed Magnolias
