Wedding Dress!

Yesterday my mom and sister and I went shopping for my wedding dress.  We started out with a 10 am appointment at The Dresser, a bridal boutique in downtown Fullerton.  I found 3 possibilities there, with 1 standing out significantly.  Naturally, the one that stands out significantly is over budget.  But no matter.

After a somewhat random grocery shopping trip at Trader Joe's (my mom had brought an ice chest so the cold stuff wouldn't spoil in the car - seriously),  we had lunch at Alicia's in Brea.  Yummy food and all of it fresh.

Then we went to a 3 pm appointment at Alfred Angelo in Brea.  This store was not a boutique, but it wasn't quite as "chain store" as David's Bridal is.  Here I also found a couple that are possibilities, with 1 standing out significantly again.  This one is not over budget, but it also is not as nice of a dress as the one I found in downtown Fullerton.

The problem with most of the dresses I tried on was that they were all around a size 10.  I'm a size 2.  Or 0.  Or something.  Basically, really small.  So that makes it hard to tell.  And the two dresses are very similar, but the skirts are different.  I can't decide.  And I can't decide if I want to go to another store and see what's there.

Sorry, no pictures of any of this.  We were allowed to take them which is very helpful (or very annoying because all I end up doing is staring at them on my computer and coming to no conclusion at all), but I'm not posting anything because I don't want Mat to see anything until I'm walking down the aisle.

But that's my dilemma.  Oh, my life is so hard! :)

On another note, I ran three miles again today.  And it was easier than the first time.  :)

  1. Oh gosh! What a pain the butt, for the sizing. I didn't realize samples are 10s. Are they REALLY? I am about a 6 now and I thought they were around 4... I guess the "fat america" epidemic probably has something to do with it, huh? You're so short too, right? You poor tiny thing! And I'm not being facetious.

    Oh, and I think you should keep looking as long as you have time.
