In three days, it will be exactly seven months from my wedding and I still don’t have a dress. In December when I first went shopping for a dress, I felt it was way too early to be even looking at dresses. What if I changed my mind? What if I hated in 10 months? What if I saw something I liked better? Now, three months later I am starting to feel the heat a bit. I still feel very confident that I will find something, but the pressure is starting to build! After the dress shopping trip with my sister and my mom, I took a two month break from dress shopping and I think that really helped. I was able to process all of those dresses I tried on and really deduce what it was I liked and didn’t like about all of them. I also realized that any dress I wore would be beautiful, so I had to narrow down to the one that embodied how I wanted to feel on my wedding day.
This made dress shopping round two much easier! Knowing that I was a bit overwhelmed by the entire process, one of my girlfriends thankfully took it upon herself to book some appointments for me here in SF. And though I didn’t come home with a dress, I have a much better idea of how I want to look.
Next month, I am heading to New York City for one of my college friend’s bachelorette parties and she very smartly encouraged me to make an appointment at wedding gown mecca – Kleinfeld’s – while I am there. So if worse comes to worst, I am hoping I will find something there (I think I have to!).
The last time I did a wedding dress post, I was a bit all over the place in terms of what I liked. But I think I have a much better idea now. Here are some dresses that are catching my eye as of late. Maybe, one of these will be the one!
How many months before your wedding did you find your dress?
