Am I that difficult to please?

July 26, 2007

So I just got home from wedding dress shopping in Boston with my friends Sarah and Emily and although I’ve tried on about 40 dresses (between this visit and the two stores I went to in Vermont) I still haven’t found THE ONE. I’ve liked a few, but not really that many.

Overall I’ve found that most wedding dresses weigh about 10 lbs. and require that people come to you. Will that work?

Heck no – I’ll be kicking up my heels and dancing till dawn – I need a dress that fits the bill!!

Since Priscilla of Boston was booked we tried on dresses at L’Elite and also went by Vera Wang to browse

A few I’ve tried on since my odyssey begun…..

Pretty and lightweight but a little too Grecian princess for a garden wedding in Vermont (Reem Acra)

Too heavy…..(Watters)

Summery and cute but not quite it (Watters)

My dear Mother asked me to lean over and “say hi to Grandma” in this dress. When I did she nixed it and pretty much all other v necks 🙂

Off subject but I LOVE this hairstyle from a Judd Waddell campaign

This Judd Waddell dress was very pretty but since I’m wearing my family veil which is primarily lace we thought that maybe they would compete with each other?
Next stop…..Kleinfeld’s – the grand daddy of dress stores. They carry over 60 designers and I’ve heard you don’t get to look around – you tell them what you want and they bring it to you. Luckily I’m getting better at being able to succinctly describe what it is (I think!) I’m looking for.

On another subject – it is the 2nd to last night in our old apartment. I took a car load of things over today and will take another over tomorrow morning. You never realize how much stuff you have until you have to move each and every last bit of it – fun stuff 🙂

Nighty night!

Oooh, I wish I could still go dress shopping… that’s a drawback to being married! I can’t wait to hear if you’ve found the ONE at Kleinfeld’s.

Well, compared to my wife I guess you are hard to please. My wife bought the first wedding dress she tried on!!

Seriously, take your time. You want your photos to be good. So you want to be in the right dress that you not only will look good in but that will be comfortable to wear all day long.

Good luck!
