FOR THE BRIDE TO BE

You may know, or may not know... I recently got engaged (and by recently I mean it's almost been 3 months.)  Go ahead ask me the question that everyone is dying to ask? I have no idea when we're getting married, how were getting married or where. :) 

However, I do know that I love me some white dresses and parties. Recently, I had some amazing friends throw me a engagement party. You can imagine the amount of searching I did for an amazing white dress. I had a couple ladies ask me for some white dress suggestions so I did the ultimate round-up for you. 

There were 3 places that I primarily went when I started looking for a white dress.

  1. Trunk Club (Hint if you have a Nordstrom card they waive the styling fee)
  2. Rent the Runway (I have been doing UNLIMITED - click here for $30 off)
  3. Lulu's - because they have have cute trendy white dresses and shoes (it's my guilty - but not really guilty because it's not too expensive- pleasure)

Here are my favorite's that I rounded up and I will be featuring a new one on Instagram each Wednesday for #WeddingWednesday!

This one was and I'm going to be honest MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!!!!!!! OMGGG, this dress is a dream. It's by Dress the Population check out their collection {HERE}. YOU WILL see me in this dress at some point again... I promise. It fit like a glove and made everything look perfect. I swear, the sequins were places in all the right places to accentuate all the right things. I felt like a YASSS QWEEENNNNN. Sass, class and a little bit of ass.

So while the sequin number did things to my heart I can't even begin to describe, the dress below was right up my alley... boho chic, a little sexy and a little beachy (Florida remember??!) BTW- This dress would be great for bridesmaids (NOTE: it's wicked LONG and comes in multiple colors.)

This Ted Baker dress was oozing with class, but unfortunately was entirely too large for me, so I had to send it back. I did love the fun print and way that it was structured, I just didn't have time to get it altered.

All in all, ask my friends and fianc√©, it took me trying on at least 6 dresses, 2 insta polls and a glass of wine to decide the winner... 

Here's the one I wore.....

I wore this because it was Austin, it was me, and it made me feel like a bride... but not 'I'm renting out Hamptons Yacht Club kinda bride.' ;)
