“A wedding dress is both an intimate and personal for a woman – it must reflect the personality and style of the bride.” -Carolina Herrera
A wedding is a defining moment in any woman’s life- a coming of age story where you present yourself as a new woman to both your partner and your loved ones. That moment of reveal as you walk down the aisle is an unspoken conversation letting everyone know that you are ready for this new chapter in life. Finding the perfect dress to make that bold statement is one of, if not THE most important decisions during the wedding process. (no pressure.)
I’ve had my share of dress-gasms. Yes, dress-gasms– a spurting moment of excitement when you put on a beautiful dress. But any girl can put on a beautiful dress and feel like a princess.
After a hundred princess moments, I have yet to feel like a bride.
I was looking for a dress that spoke without words. A dress that embodied the woman I have evolved into and the woman I want to be for my husband; at the same time, a dress that made me feel beautiful and timeless. I wanted something sophisticated, something sexy, something complicated but put together. I wanted a dress that defined the person I am now.
A few stores and a million dresses later, I finally found the perfect one. But a huge shoutout to these many princess moments for without trying these dresses on, I would not have been able to find, the one.
