Tid Bit #6- Beyond the Wedding Dress

Let me start this post by saying that the wedding gown is my favorite part of any wedding. I love a perfectly unique but classic gown.

When you get engaged, one of the first priorities is to find a dress! It is possibly the most fun part of wedding planning (unless you find yourself having trouble making a decision...maybe we should discuss this soon..hmmm...ok).

The thing is, you also need dresses/outfits for various showers, an engagement party, the bridesmaids luncheon, the rehearsal dinner, a possible going away dress...just to name a few.

This all sounds fun and good until you really start shopping and try to put it all together. You may have 5ish great dresses, but which should you where for which shindig??

Here are some examples from the one and only Anthropologie.


Engagement Party:

Bridesmaids Luncheon:
Rehearsal Dinner:

Getaway dress:


There are so many great dresses out there that I just decided to focus on this one fabulous store for today. My inspiration comes from my friend, Kate Woods, who will be the next featured bride!! She went shopping at Anthropologie today for dress to wear for her engagement pictures (ah we didn't even cove that one)!

Well, the lesson is there are tons of outfits to think about throughout the wedding season. Just have fun with it, try to find some deals on the sale rack, and go for it. Try not to rethink purchases too much. It is so easy to love something, buy it, come home, and panic. Do not panic. I am sure whatever you picked out was perfect and fab :)

Oh one last thing- most of these dresses are in the $100-$300 range. Not too bad. The good news is, you WILL re-wear this stuff! You will be so happy to have these nice dresses in your married wardrobe.

Dear faithful reader bloggy friends,

I love you all. Thanks for all of your sweet encouragement. I am in the middle of "recruiting" season right now for work and things have been CRAZZYYY. It requires a ton of travel. I am so sorry I have not been giving out any good advice or River Region ideas. I have tons of thoughts and ideas that hopefully I will be able to get out to y'all soon!!! I can't wait!!

In the mean time, if you or a friend of yours is a River Region or Auburn bride, please let me know if they would like to be featured! I would love to highlight them and all of their vendors!!

Y'all have a great week!
