dream dress

I'm so jealous that Anna has found her dress!! I haven't really gone out looking, but I have to admit that I'm a little uninspired to do so based on the dresses I'm seeing for sale online, or on tv, and in real weddings. I'm a plain kind of girl, I don't like excessive beading, or really beading of any kind. I'm not a fan of embroidery, or many many shapes of dresses. I felt overwhelmed and uninspired, two feelings that aren't the best together. Then I found this cool website http://weddings.ivillage.com/ where you can "build your dream dress". It gives you a drawn person who you can change the shape of to look more like you, and then many different bodices, skirts, ribbons, veils etc etc etc so I designed a couple of came to some conclusions.

Conclusions: I love a sweetheart neckline. I think it is simple, beautiful, and will be extremely flattering to my ta-tas. So I'm going to have to search hard for it because I haven't seen a lot of these around. I really like the drop skirt, but I'm not sure how flattering it would be on my hips, but you never know until you try. I do know that I like how the gathered skirt looks on me.

I mean, I have plenty of time to find my dress so I just need to keep my eye out for exactly what I want, but hopefully that will be easier now.

Go play on this website, much fun!
