Today kicks off the start of wedding dress shopping! While I am sure that this is like the BEST part for most brides, it's the most dreaded part for me. I'm plus-sized, I don't "dress-up" much, I'm not that girly-girl kind of gal. I'm no tomboy either, but I consider myself to be a minimalist! I'm also white as a ghost!
I'm starting at David's Bridal so that I can get a sense of what might look good, what style is right for me, etc. Whether or not I buy my dress there is to be determined later. I have my eye on a few dresses online, and I can't determine of they would even be a fit for me until I try on some dresses.
My criteria is mainly that I get something with straps or halter-like. No strapless, no trains, nothing too long and preferably not white and no veils.
Here are some of my more favorite "styles" of dresses...
Dress #1: the one I absolutely LOVE the most!
Dress #2: Cool 50's diner style dress, I think it's cool - don't judge the black!
Dress #3: Love the layering of the chiffon, it's minimal and simple. I'd add bling to it.
Dress #4: Another minimal dress, elegant and pretty, not too over the top
Dress #5: This was one of the first I found online, it's a little long though
Dress #6: OOOH, I ♥ the gray! Little too short, I think. I don't know. I'd wear it!
Dress #7: Again, minimalist.
