How have I not posted about this yet?!

Over the past week and a half two major things have been checked off of the bridal to-do list: bridesmaids dresses and my dress!! I've been monitoring JCrew for a while because although I absolutely loved the dress I picked out for my bmaids, I did not love the price. But luckily last week it went on sale and all of the girls were able to snatch it up with in a 24-hour span!

I am so excited about both the style and color of this dress! I know that pale grey seems to be very 'in' right now, but I am not going the traditional route and pairing it with yellow. I've already purchased their jewelry and while I can't share it with you here (in fear of them spying it early) I can tell you that the necklace is ocean blue colored beads. Since it will be right on the seacoast I think that the pop of blue against the grey will be perfect. It will also coordinate nicely with the groomsman who will be in black tuxes with ocean blue bow ties :)

Now...on to my dress! Like I said a few posts ago, I finally got up enough nerve to go try on wedding dresses. It was so much fun and I honestly don't know why I waited so long. I had gone with one of my sisters and we found a dress that we both fell in love with. I was ready to make the purchase that day! I of course wanted my mom's approval as well as my other sister's so we scheduled another appointment. I was seriously ready to buy that dress and call it a day. It was the San Patrick Bahamas dress:

Hook, line & sinker, this was my dress. Or so I thought. When we got to the bridal boutique (my mom, other sister, and one of my bmaids were there as well) I thought it would be fun to try on more...why not?! The first one I tried on absolutely floored me. And everyone else! It is so different from the above dress, but still so beautiful. I had the hardest time decided between the two. We were honestly in there for three hours going back and forth!

But in the end I decided on the other dress- it is slightly more modern, coordinates better with the bmaid's dress, and has that definite 'wow' factor. It fit like a glove and was in perfect condition so we were able to buy it off the rack that day! Luckily they are holding it for me at the store, otherwise I would be tempted to wear it around our apartment all day. I am so in love with it! I know that my fiance doesn't look at this blog normally, but I'm still nervous about posting it. It's also a San Patrick dress. So if you'd like a sneak pic, shoot me your email address and I'll send it to you. Otherwise you'll have to let the anticipation build for another 10 months!
