I have been home for just over a week now and I feel pretty good about what Mommy and I have accomplished in terms of wedding planning!
ü Engagement Party Date and Venue
ü Engagement Party Invitations
(well narrowed it down to a couple of options)
ü Completed the contract for the band!!!
ü Went to look at a couple of tents that have been set up by the company we are using for the reception. (Beautiful!!!)
ü Wedding Gown Appointments
Ahhh - the wedding gown appointments. I have no idea why in my head I thought this process would be much simpler. I knew I wanted a simple, elegant, chic (probably lace) wedding gown appropriate for a Hamptons wedding (meaning no ball gowns please! Not into the puffy…)! I also don’t love the way strapless dresses look on me. This is kind of a problem in the world of wedding dresses. Almost all dresses are strapless – ahhhhh! The good news is that now that I have tried on a lot of dresses, I know what I don’t like! My mom and I have found a wedding dress silhouette that we love on my shape – yay! I also tried on a bateau neckline gown that I loved, it was very me, and gave off a Jackie O/ Grace Kelly feel. So we will be going back to try that gown on again. I just feel more pressure than I thought I would in choosing a gown, I know I will find the perfect dress for me, it may just take some time!
