I woke up excited and a little anxious about looking for my wedding dress today. My first appointment was at 11:30 am at Belltown Bride in Seattle (which I highly recommend, the owner Melissa and my consultant Lia were top notch). I arrived before my friends did, and chatted with Lia about what I was looking for. It was my very first time looking for a wedding dress and as I walked into the gallery surrounded by white, taffeta, beads and lace, I started crying. What the heck? Why am I crying?! I was so overwhelmed that this was really happening; that I was finally getting married...me...the girl who's always the bridesmaid. Not only am I getting married, but getting married to the most amazing, wonderful, loving, manly man in the world. After getting over my utter embarrassment for breaking down 3 minutes after walking in, I was ready to try on dresses. After numerous changes, there was one dress I fell in love with and it was in my budget! Omg...could I really have found my dress after the first stop? I had another appointment at 3:30, so I put a hold deposit on the dress because I couldn't convince myself that dress shopping was that easy! After today I realized how emotional and not easy the decision is. Wouldn't you know it? I arrived to my 3:30 appointment at I Do Bridal and tried on a dress that I loved even more! However, this dress was not in my budget. And apparently you're supposed order wedding dresses about 4-6 months before your wedding. Not only was this dress over budget, I would have to pay a rush shipping fee on top of the price of the dress and alterations. Ugh. I spent the next 5 hours at home researching dresses again and different boutiques I guess I'm not done dress shopping! Here are some pics of my day though!
