We’ve got 17 months until our wedding, but I’m trying on wedding dresses on Monday. Martha says I don’t have to start looking for a dress until I reach the 6-8 months out bracket, but since we’ve decided to elope, I don’t have much else to do (find a beach, rent homes, buy Dustin a suit, hm, what else?). I’m taking my mom and mother-in-law with me, along with print-outs of a few dresses I like. But other than knowing where I’ll be and at what time, I have no idea what to expect. When I made the appointment, the salesperson said I’d have my privacy invaded (remind me to shave), and that it would take about 2 hours to try on dresses (remind me also to chow down on some granola bars).
After scouring their website, so far, I’m really attracted to lace and A-lines. If it’s too poofy and princessy, or if it has too much beading, I almost know I’ll hate it.
