Dress, Veil and More

By Melanie


With just 33 days to my wedding (oh my!), I know I will be blogging way too much about wedding things. I will try my best to keep it to a minimum so it's not a bridal overload here!

As you know I'm having a destination wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico. I thought a DW would be totally stress free (I was so wrong). There is still so much to do. I could never handle planning a big bash here. Although I'm sure it would be so much fun, it would be way too time consuming.

Part of my DW planning is shopping! Love it! I purchased my veil and shoes this week.


My veil is really long which will compliment my simple lace dress.

I think a long veil is so elegant and pretty.

I purchased the dress a few weeks ago but it's getting alterations right now and won't be ready for another two weeks. As soon as I have it, I'll give you a sneak peak (my fiance doesn't really read the blog so I think I'm safe).

I got my dress and veil at David's Bridal. It seems like a lot of people look down at DB's. I admit, I was a little skeptical at first...but to my surprise they have A LOT of beautiful dresses. AND that look expensive. Especially if you know how to spot the good ones. I would much rather pay 1K for my dress rather than thousands of dollars. I think my dress looks just as beautiful as a 10k Vera Wang. Poor DB they get such a bad rap.


I loved and blogged about a gorgeous dress here and mine looks almost similar.

What do you think of David's Bridal?


  1. Around here, many women use DBs but I think the store is looked down upon not because of the prices, but more because of the factory-like atmosphere and the bad customer service at some locations. I think the dresses are terrific.

  2. Hey Deconstruction,

    So true about the factory-like atmoshpere. And the store is not as pretty as boutiques. No special attention and champagne!

    I did get lucky and had a really attentive sales girl. But she was helping two other brides at the same time!

  3. Oh, keep the wedding talk and dresses coming... I love seeing what people are doing for their weddings!

    I'm not married nor am I anywhere near, so I don't have personal experience with DB, but my besty got her dress there and loved it. I don't think it's necessary to spend thousands of dollars on your dress, either. Yes, you want to LUV it and feel stunning in it, that's important - but you can love a 1k dress as much as a 10k dress.

    Can't wait to see more pics!

    xoxo J

  4. I've never had an experience with DB as a bride or a bridesmaid but I'm glad they're working out well for you! All that matters is finding a dress you love and feeling great in it and it sounds like you have that :)
