Beyond the White Dress…All the Other Dresses for Pre-Wedding Events

Monday, October 12, 2009

Finding my wedding dress was unbelievably easy. It was the first dress I tried on! I’ve had a drastically different experience finding the other dresses though. There is a serious shortage of stores where I now live – a stark contrast to Orlando where I did my shopping in Florida. Thank goodness we do have some of the necessities: Lilly Pulitzer and Anthro. There are a total of three other boutiques, all of which rarely carry anything below a size 4! So, after countless hours of online shopping, having several dresses sent to the Lilly store, one tailor who was just a little too close for comfort (not my usual fabulous tailor), and spending time on the phone with a lovely girl at Anthro in SC, here’s what I found:

Rehearsal Dinner



Going Away Dress (It had to be kinda casual since my fiance and I going directly from our reception to the airport to catch our flight to Spain!)



Now what to wear to my bridal shower and bridesmaids luncheon? I bought a wonderful pink Trina Turk dress several months ago (it was just too pretty to pass up, even though I had nowhere to wear it), but I just don't know if it's passable for winter. I definitely wouldn’t wear it in Virginia, but it might be alright for Florida. Any suggestions?



I still need at least one more dress and fabulous shoes for all of them. A few of my friends and I are taking a Tysons trip (an outstanding mall in DC) later this month and I'm hoping to have good luck there!
