Wedding Fashion: The Dress

Oh my gosh you guys.  Last month I went wedding dress shopping!

I had 3 school of thought for what I thought I was going to want for a dress.
1) Tea Length
2) Vintagesque – old school, overlay for the top of the dress, and lace
3) Long. Pretty. Unique. – a traditional evening wedding length with the “usual” details, something different

Here’s some of the dresses I was looking at going into the appointment.

Tea Length
