Dress Shopping a Year Ago Today

image from J.Crew

This is the first dress I fell in love with but was unavailable when I seriously started shopping and also a little expensive :) I love the J.Crew wedding dresses because they are simple and so pretty!

Last year I found my dress on the first and only day I went shopping with my mom and sister in Colorado. It was only the seventh dress I tried on but I knew it was the one. The dress was a gift from my mom and more expensive than I thought my dress would cost but it was a sample on sale for less than half of the original price. I'm pretty sure I gasped when I saw the original price and label :)

Such an incredible gown! I love the low low back...and the bodice is such a simple, clean line that contrasts so beautifully with the full skirt!

I know what you mean about trying on only a few...mine was about the fifth I tried and I just knew it was the one!

You are so very beautiful and I will always remember the day we found your dress. I knew it was perfect right away and will keep how I really felt to myself but lets just say you did look like an angel and it brought tears to my eyes. Madre
