Wedding Planning is Kinda Hard

Not unenjoyable...just hard because there's so much to do. I occupy most of my time searching for inspiration on the internet :) I like so many things so we'll see how they all come together. Either that or i'll just have a hodge podge wedding full of random things that I love that don't necessarily go together. If that's what I end up with, then I'll be happy with that too! Really the theme of my wedding is "I'm not gonna stress about anything". At the end of the day, I'm marrying the person that I love and all of my friends and family will be there to celebrate with me. I don't care (kinda) where it is and what shade of white I'm wearing. Ok, we all know that I care, but I'm just saying...I'm gonna be happy with whatever it shapes up to be.

Here are LOTS of ideas that I gathered from Internet Land...none of these are my original photos and I wish I could credit them all but they are randomly saved to my desktop and I won't bother finding the original source.

btw, i'm not sure what I like and don't like for my actually wedding yet. I like some elements in these pictures, but not always the actual thing. Let me know what you guys think!

I love the sweetheart neckline of this gown...I don't know if I would want to deal
with maybe having to pull up my dress all night in fear of my goods spilling out :)

This dress is so romantic and I'm all about that. My favorite part
is the scalloped detail of the lace in the back. Unfortunately, a bra wouldn't be
the easiest thing to put into a dress like this.

I love that this bride's whole back is out...the straps look really
dainty and feminine too. Of course, no bra would be of concern.
Pockets are a plus, for lipgloss :) 

I don't actually like this dress, I just like that the straps are no fuss. 

So here I am in a dress that i've dubbed, the Mummy Dress. I like the silhouette but all that ruching and extra fabric is just too much for me. It might be nice on someone else though.

I think the back is boring but the train is dramatic, which is cool...
minus the long tails of the bow.

I like this neckline but that's about it. 


  1. Well whatever you decide to'll be gorgeous. It's so freakin exciting!

    There will plenty of opportunities to stress and lose sight of what's important. In those times, stop. Take a breath. And say, it's about AW and I. Find what'll make you two happy, and say eff the rest cause at the end of the day, the wedding is just that, a wedding. It isn't a reflection of how much you two love each other. It isn't a reflection of how much your friends and family love you guys. It's a celebration, and should remain that. Don't let the wedding cause you to lose sight of the real deal, marriage.

    Time ta paaaah-tay!!!
