Feeling Bridal

Stephen and I are getting closer and closer to having a date set for our wedding!! We spent the first four months of our engagement drinking champagne, staring at the ring (ok maybe that was just me) and moving cross-country, but now it's time to get the show on the road!

We've been to three potential venues and are 95% sure we want to get married at the third one. The location is stunning and really spoke to us, both as individuals and as a couple. There is one more location we want to look at before booking "our venue" but to be honest, it's kind of halfhearted at this point. We both know we've found The One (pun intended hehe).

I wore this outfit to our first potential location because it felt elegant and bridal. I got this dress at Forever 21 when I was seventeen and still love it! Crazy how certain items work out like that, huh? It was on the "expensive" end of things by F21 standards (high $30s instead of mid $20s) so I put it back twice before deciding to go for it. I'm so glad my little highschool self decided to live on the edge and splurge. ;)





Dress, Forever 21
Shoes, Steve Madden (similar, similar)
Bag, Aldo (similar)
Earrings, My Flat in London (similar, similar
Watch, my grandmother's <3

I perused the F21 site to see if I could find anything vaguely similar to this dress purchased 6 years ago. These aren't super similar but are also conservative and white/cream. I love:

  2. This dress is absolutely stunning on you! And good luck picking a venue! That was what has caused me the most stress during wedding planning, but since then it's pretty much been a breeze :)
