After almost two and a half months, I am finally getting around to putting up these pictures of our trip to Chicago. On the trip, I left my big DSLR camera at home and snapped everything with whatever camera phone I had on hand, so these are from my mom's iPhone and I finally emailed them to myself the other day.

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.

You can find BHLDN Chicago at 8 E Walton St, Chicago, IL 60611



In all honesty, I did have a little buyer's remorse after settling on one. There were others that I loved and that I felt good in, but the one that I chose was the only one that almost brought me to tears and was the closest to what I had imagined myself in for our wedding day - so of course that's why I chose it. But I kept thinking, what if the other one will feel better to me? What if I picked the wrong one? Am I going to buy another wedding dress? Full disclosure, I've bought two others since the trip BUT I'm fairly confident the one from BHLDN is still the one.

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.
