It feels like so long ago that I looked at wedding dresses! It was such a fun day. Cory's mom and my mom came up to NYC to look with my sister and I. The day started with brunch at one of my favorite places, Nomo Soho then off to our appointment at Lovely Bride! I should start by telling you I'd already ordered a dress online that I was IN LOVE with but felt like since it was the first dress I tried on I should do my due diligence. So to Lovely Bride we went!

No one prepares you for a dress appointment but in an hour you usually can try on about 5 dresses so be selective! You can always make a second appointment if needed. I tried on so many different ones and the girl who helped me was incredible! But only try on what you want to try on. Don't let your mom/sister/aunt/whoever pressure you into what they want to see on you. Start with what you want and go from there. We had discussed some ground rules at brunch regarding my appointment and I'd suggest doing the same. The rules were - I picked the dresses, I got first opinion then they could share their's.
Lovely Bride was such an incredible experience and they had such a wide range of dresses to choose from. And by the end of the appointment I knew the dress I'd ordered online was the one!
