Wedding dresses!

Thursday was my first time looking at wedding dresses. I went to Town & Country Bridal with my mom and my sister. My mom brought along her veil, which had been sealed up since my aunt Nancy's wedding about 20 some years ago. The veil is great! It just needs to be pressed. The veil is Beligum lace - my mom actually bought it in Belgium. It is a cathedral length veil with some flowers down the back. Since the veil is do intricate, I'm looking for a very simple dress.

Here is my favorite dress so far:

Hopefully the link works. I tried to get the link to the picture so I could post it in here, but it wouldn't let me. It is a gorgeous simple dress with 2 little ribbons around the waist and buttons all down the back. The front has a few pleats and is in a gorgeous silk. I will be getting it in white. The store had it in ivory (I think that's what it was) and the color did nothing for my skin tone. I definitely need a bright white.

Today we're (my sister and I) are going to Clarice's to check it out. Then, we're going to Bridal Connections in Florissant next Thursday. I'm hoping I will find "the dress" at one of these places!

I do love the simple lines of that dress and the slight detail at the waist. When I was dress shopping, my favorite designer was Jenny Lee. Have you looked at her dresses at all? She was a bit out of my price range, but it didn't keep me from drooling over her designs!
