In Case There Was Any Confusion:

I'm not getting married any time soon
{as much as I'd love to be, even if it's just so I can wear one of these for real...}
 I promise to actually bring up the man in my life on this here bloggy before I announce my wedding.

So now that the joke's over {haha...aren't I funny?}, here's the story-

I spent a night at a local bridal/formal boutique trying on wedding and formal dresses. 
No particular reason -who needs a reason to play dress-up?

The boutique is called "Celestial Bridal & Prom", and it's pretty much the cutest thing ever. The best part is, 
every. single. dress.
was completely modest!

What I learned:
+ my dress size is, like, nonexistent. I will need to have every dress I ever
buy altered - I'm not busty or waist-y enough for anything that fits my hips!
Every dress I tried on had to be clipped up in the back to make it fit.
+ large quantities of modest dresses in a single place DO exist
+ they make high-low hem wedding dresses! 
+ all that I really care about in a wedding dress:
train and veil.
Preferably when both are lacy
+ if left to my own devices when posing, I will do the same weird
thing with one of my feet every time:

Celestial was the cutest little place, with great intimate settings, and the owner, Shelby Coleman, was super sweet and helpful, even though we were just there for fun. And I swear she has this gift for being able to sense what people will like - I'd come out of the changing room to take pictures, and she'd have another dress picked out that she thought would be perfect for me, and I loved all of them!

This was the most fun night I've had in a while - and I felt like a princess the whole time!

What are your favorite dress styles - wedding or otherwise?
Anyone else as crazy about the trains and veils as I am?


  1. That last wedding gown looks gorgeous on you!! I love this post :-)
    Me? I love vintage gowns with lace. :-)

  2. beautiful! What a fun way to spend a day. You look beautiful in all of them. And LOVE the red shoes!!

  3. Don't worry, you're not the only one with the bust to hip ratio problem. I had to alter my wedding dress too! I love that lacy one with the red heels at the very end--super cool and not traditional.

  4. WOW, so many pretty dresses! Your blog is adorable and I am now following you!
