I already have my wedding dress. Yep, that's right, I brought one less than a month after the proposal!
 I counted up the other day, and I tried on over sixty dresses before I found the one, both here and in New Zealand. I tried on vintage dresses, secondhand dresses, full frou frou wedding dresses, and simple Ivory dresses from non-wedding's a highlight reel of photos I managed to sneakily take....

this one had the most amazing back on it...lace  with tiny buttons.

I liked this one...but the ribbon was in a weird place.

I think the look on my face says it all in some of these photos. I truly underestimated how time consuming and energy draining wedding dress shopping would be, the dresses are so heavy and difficult to get into! Dickie and I are having a simple ceremony by the beach near Nelson, so a huge train was out. I want to be able to pee without needing help from my bridesmaids, so endless petticoats were also a no no. I eventually went for a simple, flattering ,beautifully sewn Melbourne made dress (not pictured!) that I can now go accessory mad with!


  1. WOW! some gorgeous dresses there! My good friend recently got engaged and bought the first dress she tried on- I could not believe it, im one of her bridesmaids and was really looking forward to dress shopping with her! :(
    Anyway, my favourites have to be the 7th, 10th and 15th dresses. Cant wait to see the dress you choose!


  2. O my goodness! I don't know where to start with all these beautiful wedding dresses. My personal favourite is 11th from the top on you. You look stunning in icy white. I once went to a beautiful wedding in Nelson out at the gardens around the Honest Lawyer. It was beautiful!

  3. Ooooh so many pretty dresses and you look so lovely, you are going to make a gorgeous bride!
    I could not believe how exhausting and frustrating wedding dress shopping was! Not nearly as fun as I expected.
    Well done on getting so many sneaky shots!
