Rehearsing in Style

Shortly after getting engaged, I went on a little-white-dress shopping spree. I snatched up just about every adorable white dress you could find – believing I would have the opportunity to wear it at some point during my engaged life. My favorite, is still the “Blakely” from J. Crew, and it’s still the front runner for our rehearsal dinner. (I’m even more stoked that one of my BMs chose this dress for the wedding, it’s so chic & classy!).

Then I found the J. Crew “Ginny” which is equally as adorable, but slightly more casual, so I thought it might be good for a shower/party/bachelorette dinner? I love that it has pockets and rugby stripes!

I had a mental battle with myself when I stumbled across this Banana Republic dress. I thought for a second it might be more perfect than the Blakely, so I bought it and fell in love. But it didn’t fit… so now I’m actually selling it on eBay (along with some other fabulous dresses).
dressMy other finds have included dresses from Anthropologie, Victoria’s Secret, J. Crew (eyelet – swoon!), and Lula Kate, although I haven’t purchased the Lula Kate one yet.

What’s your vote for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner? Obviously, I love lace + ruffles (and seer-sucker seeing how I just scooped up a darling Blakely-style seer-sucker stunner from J. Crew Factory). That should be perfect for a spring shower!

Happy Good Friday, y’all. Happy Easter. Happy weekend!

Not your average dress experience

If you recall, I ordered my dress from J. Crew without having seen it in person or trying it on and it was just as perfect as I imagined. However, this has made the rest of my dress experience a little less traditional than most as well.

Last week, I took my own dress to have it altered (instead of the shop/boutique where I purchased it taking care of all of this – many have in-house alterations). I felt a little empty as I walked away, leaving that bag full of beauty hanging in side waiting to be cut-down and made to fit me perfectly for my big-dream wedding!

When they asked when I’d like to pick it up, I was a little taken back… I’ve heard from friends that they haven’t gotten their dress until 2 weeks before the wedding or had to “borrow it” from the alterations place to have their bridal portraits done and then return it for finishing touches. Anyway, I’m going in April for my first fitting. We only tackled taking it in, the neckline and “less poof” on this first round. The hem/train will be the next piece but I have some decisions to make around that.

Speaking of dresses – I bought this beauty  from Banana Republic a while back and unfortunately it doesn’t fit – so I’m selling it. It would be great for a rehearsal dinner/shower (or any fun party you plan on attending!).
