The purpose of the trip was to go wedding dress shopping and we really only had one boutique in mind - BHLDN.The boutique itself was so charmingly set up with little trinkets strewn about. There were so many beautiful dresses.
To the brides-to-be and brides-that-have-been out there, I pose this question to you: How do you choose a wedding dress?
Everyone tells you that "You'll just know" and that "You'll fall in love with one," but during our shopping experience, it occurred to me that I really truly loved them all. They're all beautiful. And that's something no one tells you. That you'll fall in love with five of them and be forced to pick.
But no one ever tells you that. That you're going to doubt everything and want to buy multiple dresses. I thought everything would just be perfect and easy and I would just know. My dress is beautiful and I love it, and I know now that it's the one but in the moment the pressure can be overwhelming. As my best friend - who talked me down from the ledge - said to me, you have to trust your gut and believe that the decision you made was the right one. And I do!
All in all, it was a wonderful experience and I'm glad we made a trip out of it. It was great for Tyler to see the city and for my sister, my mom and I to spend quality time together wedding dress shopping. It was such a great trip I will always remember.
