I signed up for a David's Bridal appointment when I was at the Eugene Bridal expo to get a free Shutterfly coupon. I decided to use the appointment to take another look at bridesmaid dresses and maybe a special occasions dress for myself.
I probably wouldn't be looking at dresses for myself at David's Bridal, but my roommate has a credit for over $100 that she has offered to give me. She says she won't buy anything there, so I might as well use it! I hope she is able to transfer the credit to me. :) Since I bought my dress at David's Bridal, I also get an additional $20 off each dress I buy.
Here are some of the dresses I tried on:
I found a necklace that might work with my dress. My dress has really chunky beading on the belt, so I think whatever jewelry I go with should have similarly-proportioned jewels. Here's a picture:
While at the store, I decided to browse the bridesmaid dresses. I came to some very important conclusions while shopping! Here they are:
1) I like the cotton sateen fabric best. This fabric feels like a cotton sundress, which would be perfect for a July wedding. Also, the cotton sateen has very cute styles!
2) I definitely will have my bridesmaids pick their own style of dress. Everyone will be happy! :)
3) I love the color MALIBU! I made a decision, and this IS the color! I just talked to Lee, and he likes this color too. Yay!
Here are the current cotton sateen Malibu dresses (plus a lace Malibu dress):
I was so excited about figuring out the color, that I had to try a Malibu dress on while I was in the store. I did a test run of the top right dress with black accessories. My camera made the blue color a little different, but you can get the overall idea. What do you think? Black accessories on the bridesmaids, or silver?
I also bought a swatch of the color. Does this mean it's "official"?!
