When I announced that Coding God and I got engaged and that I ordered a wedding dress, a lot of people expressed an interest in seeing it! Well I’m not going to post pictures of it until probably after the wedding, because Coding God is itching to see it and I have to hide it from him! But, I thought I’d share with you guys some of the wedding dresses I tried on but didn’t order!
Let’s get started!
Dress #1 – The itchy sleeves
I’m so not digging the belt thing. But anyway, I didn’t have a good experience with this dress at all! The lacy material started to make my skin break out (especially around my shoulders). I tried on a lot of lacy dresses but this was the only one that seriously didn’t agree with my skin!
Dress #2 – The comfy one
I actually quite liked this dress. It was one of the most comfortable ones I tried on! It felt super flowy.
Dress #3 – Champagne??
Not a fan of the champagne coloured dresses. I also quickly started to realize that I don’t like the trumpet style wedding dresses (how it flares out a lot at thebottom). I quite liked some of the lace work on it though! I think the top half is really pretty.
Dress #4 – Plain Jane
I guess this one is okay, but I think it felt super plain.. and that’s coming from someone who LIKES plain wedding dresses! Just not feelin’ it.
Dress #5 – All aboard the train!
My goodness, look at the size of that train! This one is just screaming “trip over me as you walk down the aisle”. Very pretty lace though. I liked that part a lot! I also think this was the most expensive dress I tried on, at $1700.
Dress #6 – A contender!
Now this dress was actually a serious contender. Oddly enough, I actually liked it a lot more on than I do now in the photo. I feel like it looks a tad ‘boxy’ in the photo, like it just hangs straight down and has no shape at all. But I did really like this dress when I tried it on. It was just hard to imagine it because it REALLY did not fit me. It was way, way too big. You could fit two pairs of boobs in the upper half. Maybe that’s why it doesn’t quite look right in the picture.
