It was enjoyable! Like a shopping trip, I tried on dresses after dresses. Slim sheaths in gold, festive Valentino Red and the obligatory puffy wedding dresses.
I have slight regrets about not choosing something that's Valentino red right now. But I think I have found a way to squeeze one more dress out of the deal.
I got to pick 3 for the photoshoot because it's already paid for!
I got one that's a cross between these 2.

I was inspired by Oscar de la Renta's creation (that's another post altogether). The moment I saw it, I knew I wanted it. It's a big bow on the right side of the gown. Big big bow with a crystal brooch.
Some dresses look absolutely fab in real life, but don't translate well in photographs.
The dress with the big bow is divine. Fingers crossed for good pictures!
