Wedding Wednesday: The Many Dresses I Tried On...

...but didn't purchase.  I won't be revealing my dress until after the wedding!  I really had NO idea what kind of dress I wanted so I tried on A LOT.  Most of them were my size so that made it even harder to decide.  Here are most of them:

No to the pleats.

This was okay.

The feathers.  No, just no.  Lol.  But, I liked the skirt.

I didn't like the straight neckline.

Again, the straight neckline.

Flattering, budget friendly and slimming - This one was a favorite until I tried to sit in it and couldn't.

Also flattering and slimming; even more budget friendly.  I didn't love the flower on the shoulder (which they tucked in).

This one was okay.  By now, I know I do not want a straight neckline.  They could have ordered this with a swooped neckline though, but then I didn't like the attached belt.

Loved this one!  It was so comfy and FUN.  I've seen it frequently on a few wedding blogs I read.

Don't I look thrilled?  Lol, I didn't know my Mom was snapping the picture in some of these.  I also loved this one but NOT the bow.

Simple satin.  My Mom liked this one but I wasn't a fan of the material.

What style dress did you wear or think you would like to wear on your wedding day?  Do you mind how comfortable it is?  Apparently I did! :)


  1. I'm so jealous! I loved trying on dresses! I knew I wanted to be a princess that day, so a big skirt w/ a looooooong train was a must!!! I went strapless, which was a surprise, big skirt, long train and beading all over. Loved it! I knew the second I put it on! :) 7 months is a long time to keep us waiting to see what you chose!! :)

  2. Stopping over from the link up.

    Ah! Trying on dresses was so much fun! I wish I could do it again :)

    I was not concerned about comfort at all when I chose my dress lol but I really should have been. I loved the way my dress looked but it was HEAVY and really hard to sit in. Then again, it was really pretty and I loved it!

    Looks like you had a lot of great options to choose from. Can't wait to see what you picked!

  3. LOVED seeing all these gorgeous dresses on you!! I ended up deleting all the pics of me in dresses that I didnt want. Ohwell. I just posted my dress on my blog today actually. Stop by and check it out!!

  4. I wasn't a fan of a straight neck line either; I've always loved sweetheart! ... and I definitely sat down in every dress I tried on (: comfort was one of my top priorities! haha

  5. Ha! Some of your faces are hysterical. Good timing on the pics Ellen! LOL.

  6. Comfort was huge for me, too! I love that mine isn't too heavy, either. You look awesome in all of them! Did you end up picking one?
