My New Favorite Thing to Do

I waste a disgusting amount of time online.  Reading celebrity gossip, stalking wedding blogs, blogging myself, and so on.  It’s rare for me to be in a room by myself and not have my eyes glued to the glow emitted from my beloved Dell.  Anyhow, I’ve recently discovered a fun new way to pass the time when putzing around online.

Step 1: Type the designer and style number or name of your wedding gown into Google.

Step 2: Go to the top left portion of the screen and click on the link that says “more.”

Step 3: Scroll down to “Blogs.”

By following those three very easy steps, you can probably find a number of blogs that have featured your wedding dress! It’s a fun little activity because if you wade past the pre-owned dress sales, you can usually find some photography blogs that feature other brides in your gown. A good number of photographers include a list of the couple’s wedding vendors at the bottom of the photography entry, which makes it quite easy to find blog entries that feature your dress! I like this approach better than just doing an image search, since most of those results are photos of models directly from the designer’s site, which is a little boring.

While part of me is possessive of my gown and doesn’t enjoy the thought of others donning it on their wedding days, a bigger part of me is more obsessed with the idea of seeing the gown in the context of others’ weddings. You get an awesome opportunity to see how others accessorized—what earrings they picked, what type of veil they selected. You also can get a glimpse into how the dress meshed into the overall context of the rest of the event. Personally, staring at these other weddings gets me so excited to have my dress fitted to my body to look perfect for our wedding. It definitely spikes the anticipation and excitement!


Here are some of my favorites of my dress.

    I was SO excited about this, I IMMEDIATELY tried it. But unfortunately my dress is by La Sposa, a Spanish designer, so evything that came up is in spanish! I wonder if I can remember enough from my high school days to figure it out…lawl

    Oh, you fancy Snow Cone! What a neat little trick! I spent a good portion of my day playing with this—can’t believe I hadn’t figured this out earlier. Thanks, lady :D

    I’ve definitely seen my dres all over. It’s the tan tea length justin alexander. I’d never heard of this dress until I tried it on. The day after I bought it, I saw it all over Weddingbee and the rest of Google. It’s nice to know it’s such a popular dress, but I am glad to see some uniqueness in how it will fit into my wedding.
