Playing Dress Up: Part II

My dear friend and old college roommate, Rosanna, was gracious enough to accompany me dress shopping at Trudy's Bridal in Campbell, CA. She was also very patient, supportive, and took a ton of great photos for me! So, Rosanna, if you're reading this, thank you again!

I still don't think I've found a dress that I like enough to purchase, but Trudy's allowed me to try on more dress styles at different price points. Our consultant, Cheryl, was super patient and pulled a lot of dresses that were similar to what I had printed from the Internet. Overall, Trudy's was a great experience and I'm really glad I went with Rosanna.

Here was our favorite out of the bunch, but I think I'm still on the hunt for something simpler.

I've also realized that my mother doesn't seem to like anything I show her. I'm starting to think of just going it alone in terms of dress shopping from now on because I'm starting to get confused about what I like based on what other people think. I like shopping by myself and don't consult anyone, maybe I can do the same with wedding dresses? But I've heard, more than once, that dress shopping is a stressful experience and that your friends/sisters/anyone else you trust should be there for support. Thoughts?

those dresses are really pretty :) i love looking at wedding dresses and hope you post more. i also love shopping by myself and when i went dress shopping i only took my mom. guess it has to do with who you're comfortable with/whose opinions you value.

You look great! I love the shape of the dress - the trumpet/mermaid style definitely looks great on you!

I wouldn't let my mom come dress shopping with me. No way. I'll pick out a couple of things I like and then bring her to the store. All shopping will be done with my sister and best friends. No mothers allowed.

Thanks girls! It was a total princess dress with a lot of crochet, I thought it was pretty (and so did Rosanna.)

I should probably get on that whole date and place thing before I shop more, but I think it's wise that I consult my mom less and less. She's just way too picky!

Take 1 friend, someone who will give you honest opinions. That's it! I took 2 friends who were honest. When I narrowed it down to 2, they liked both, but they described one as "elegant" and the other as "cinderella". I knew I had to avoid cinderella & go for elegant!!!
