I'm not sure why, but at this point, I feel more concerned with what my bridesmaids will be wearing rather than what I will be wearing. I have this ideal dress in my mind, and that seems to be the only place I can find it. It is pretty simple really, I want a strapless a-line, tea-length dress in a raspberry color and a nice (but not shiny) fabric. My first love was this little number from J.Crew:
This color is called "Wild Peony" and well, it is just too purple. The color is all wrong. I'm also afraid that the fabric is too stretchy and it will give that "uniboob" effect. You know what I'm talking about. Nobody wants that in their wedding pictures. I love the simplicity of this design, although it is a little long. So, I'm afraid this one is a no go. Another J.Crew dress that I love is this one:
I know. I it obviously not strapless. But, everything else about it is perfect. I love the color and I love the length. This one is definitely still in the running. The only thing that worries me about J.Crew dresses is that most of them are not available in stores.. and ordering them sight unseen seems like a BAD idea.. even if it is J.Crew. The next dress is from Alfred Angelo:
Okay, so this one is almost exactly what I described. But.. I don't know how I feel about that bunching thing on the side. It almost looks wrinkled? I do love the length, and the fabric seems uniboob-proof. I think this length gives everyone "fierce" legs. It also costs less than $150.
So, as of now, these are my options. If anyone happens to run into my perfect dress while searching for your own, I will love you forever if you send me a link. If you're having this problem as well, let me know and I will try to do the same for you as I scour dress websites daily!
Oh, and P.S. - Sorry for the ranting, and for the use of the word (?) uniboob.
