Behind The Scenes: Wedding Dress Shopping

“On your wedding day you should look like yourself at your most beautiful.”

So far, out of all the wedding planning I’ve been doing, this day has been my favorite! We traveled through ice and snow (actually the worst conditions) to western Kentucky last week to tackle wedding dresses, caterers, and other small details!

Our first stop was at Ziobro’s! I don’t about you gals, but did you/do you dream about the day you got/get to pick out ‘the dress’?  Since I was a little girl I’ve always dreamt of what it would be like. The big white gown and veil. Naturally, since this kind of stuff is right up my alley.. I couldn’t wait!

Above, I’m sharing some of my favorite dresses of the day! There’s such a variety too! From tulle, beading, sweetheart & halter necklines, lace, sleeves, and style, I tried just about 1 of everything on!

Going into wedding dress shopping, I had a pretty open mind. I wasn’t set on 1 specific style or cut. It was more about exploring my options, seeing what looked good on my figure, and how I really felt in all the dresses.  After each one I would look in the mirror and say, “well I really like it.. think C will like it?”  Even though I know this is my dress and I’m the one wearing, it’s our day. And I want to WOW him in whatever I choose to walk down the aisle in!

Now, I wanna know your guys favorites! Comment below and let me know! My mom, grandma, and I have a favorite one and favorite style.. maybe we are all on the same page!

Big Thank You to Ziobro’s Formals for hosting me and helping me try on these gorgeous dresses!

    I’m loving you in that first one with the lace sleeves!!! Definitely prefer ball gowns over the ‘mermaid’ look. You should pick one that shows your beautiful back! But, as usual u look gorgeous in all of them! Have fun!!!!

    When I saw the first dress I thought it was so gorgeous, but when I scrolled onto the second dress it took my breath away! That fit is definitely so flattering and complimentary for your shape and style. I think it would just be deciding between whether you prefer lace or jewels like the fourth dress. Maybe one fits the theme of your wedding more appropriately. Regardless, you’re gorgeous in them all!

    I didn’t even have to look at all the others (although I did of course) when I saw the picture in that first dress. V neck, lace floral sleeves, invisible headed back??? I know I’m not using the correct verbiage but the one in the multiple mirror shot is STUNNING!! Its classy but accentuates your best features. I could see myself absolutely falling for that dress too!! The more fitted strapless (mermaid fit I believe) was a close second, but considering the southern belle you are its still hands down the 1st way. Regardless, you’ll look stunning, and I’m sure C will be drooling over you walking down the aisle no matter what dress you pick! Congrats girl, what a exciting day!!!

    Love the last dress!! I’m partial to high necklines too though. For some reason they are just so gorgeous to me. Whichever one you choose, you will be stunning. Your beauty runs deep Torrun. So happy for you
