When I was planning my wedding I knew that I wasn’t willing to be one of those women who spent $7500 on their wedding dress. It just kills me to think about spending that kind of money on a dress that you only get to wear once. So I set a budget and went shopping.
Davids Bridal opened in my town a few months prior – so knowing that it was a bit less expensive, that was the first place that I looked. And it absolutely blew me away at the dresses that they had for the price. Again, these aren’t those super detailed, super beaded gowns but there were some really great contenders. I was in love with the White by Very Wang (and I have wanted to wear Vera Wang on my wedding since I was like 18 years old), so that was the line that I focused on. Of course I did explore other designers, but everything about the Veras just spoke to me. I wanted to wear a pink dress and that line was not afraid of colour. Eventually I chose a white dress (well actually, it was ivory) but I was just so in love with it.
It was fitted but still had some drama in the skirt.
It was lovely.
