Affordable wedding dresses DO exist, and I am going to share with you my secret, Lulus Bridal. I ordered a dress for our courthouse wedding from Lulus for $80.00 and was so impressed. It was super comfortable and fit like a glove! After wearing this dress, I was kicking myself for spending thousands on the gown for our destination wedding.
Honestly, I wasn’t planning on having a bridal shower. Nothing in our relationship has followed tradition, and we like it that way. I’m also very picky and the last thing I wanted was a stack of Tupperware. I know, I know! I’m terrible! But, when my mom’s friend, Melissa, offered to throw me a shower, I threw out the idea of a couple’s shower. I’m so glad we did this! Since we had a destination wedding this was the perfect opportunity for family and friends that couldn’t travel to Mexico to come celebrate our marriage. There was wine & beer & food. All of our favorite things.
One thing they don’t tell you when you get engaged is just how many white dresses you are going to need! Your wedding gown is NOT the only white dress you will be shopping for. Between the engagement party, bridal showers, and rehearsal dinner, there are A LOT of white dresses to be worn. I had way too much fun little white dress shopping for my wedding.
It's about the journey, not the destination (cheesy, but for real).
I’m a newlywed living in Indianapolis, Indiana with my hubby, baby girl Ryan and two pups, Porter and Piper. I wear a lot of hats, like blogger, wedding planner, wife and mama. I believe everyone has the power to create a home, life & business that they LOVE.
