Say Yes to the Stress of a Dress.

Since I'm sure all of you are losing sleep over my wedding dress frenzy, I'll let you know that I bought a dress.

The LAST dress.

And let me tell you, I'm very relieved that I can actually move on to other parts of my wedding. 

Like, oh, I don't know, PLANNING IT.

I spent the day yesterday with my mom and an old friend I've known since junior high. It was at the first store that I found my dress. When I first saw myself in the dress, it wasn't like those loco bitches on Say Yes to the Dress who start sobbing all over the place. I'm not that crazy. Instead, I looked at my reflection and thought "Ahhhh, this is it- It totally looks like ME!" Finding a dress that matched my style helped me to see that the other dresses I had tried on looked like a "romantic" version or a "sexy" version of me. I didn't realize it, but the dress I was looking for not a version of me at all. It was just me.

I sound like a nutball.

Anyway, I'm super relieved to have that behind me. 

Unfortunately, the stress doesn't stop there when it comes to wedding dresses.

The size I ordered just happens to be my exact measurements RIGHT NOW. And I'm praying I don't put on even an ounce because there's really no wiggle room. 

Also, the dress will only be arriving one month before the wedding. Which means I'm going to have to JAM if it needs any alterations.



Since I won't be divulging any hints about what my dress looks like because Eric reads my posts every now and then, I will give you a quick rundown of wedding dress features that I am not a fan of.

Disclaimer: This is totally just my opinion and I'm sure there are many beautiful dresses out there with these features. (But I just don't like them for my dress.)


CORSET BACK: Looks like a horse butt


PICK-UPS: Save it for Beauty and the Beast


JEWELS: They look kind of like cockroaches


SATIN: It's dated.


HALTER: Also dated.


BRIGHT COLOR ACCENTS: Just no.


GIANT BALL GOWNS: I don't mind smaller, lighter versions, but this is just silly.


THESE THINGS: I don't even know what they are (mutant pick-ups?), but I don't like them.


Are there any features you'd like to add to the list? Do you disagree with my critique and think that satin is to die for?

Feel free to chime in!

But if you say anything that directly insults my dress, I reserve the right to delete.

Just kidding.

Sort of.

I can't believe you posted pics of all my top choices.

This is still my favorite dress of all time.

I did the color accent thing and I kind of regret it but in my own defense there was no Pinterest when I got married!

This is more my style now. Hopefully I'll never get to use it :) http://jlm-assets.s3.amazonaws.com/styles/jh/br/zoom/jim-hjelm-bridal-lace-charmeuse-trumpet-gown-sleeveless-v-neckline-natural-waist-taffeta-sash-sweep-train-8663_zm.jpg

you could be like what's her nuts in "Girls" and just go naked.

i've never been crazy over the dress portion of my weddings (there have been two). the guest list was way more stressful. good luck with that political nightmare.

I disagree with the corset= a horses but, though I do agree with you on several of the other mentions. Satin is tricky, but if draped correctly it can be gorgeous.
There are just so many dress choices out there, I would lose ma mind if I had to do it all over again!?

Oh pick-ups. The horror. I cringe.
