The search for my perfect wedding dress came full circle thanks to Pinterest. I mentioned in my previous post that my dress ended up being one of the first I Pinned. I always had that dress in the back of my mind, but I’m the type of person who needs to see LOTS of options before being sure I’ve found the right one. So after searching the web and probably scrolling through 1,000+ dresses (thanks mostly to Brides.com and TheKnot.com), I Pinned a few dozen of all different styles since I had no idea what would work for me.

When it was finally time for me to start trying on dresses, I wanted to bring everyone along with me. But after watching one too many episodes of Say Yes to the Dress, it seemed that one of the biggest mistakes was bringing too many people to your bridal appointment (for various reasons, including loss of sanity), so what I did was divide that venture into multiple trips. I would take a few of my girlfriends with me on my first major bridal-shop outing and then would narrow down which salons I would go to with my mom, sister, and FH’s mom. (Since she only has sons, I wanted to invite her to join in on this experience. She will henceforth be known as Future Mother-in-Law, or FMIL for short).
