Practical and Comfortable.....

So now that the wedding date has been moved up....I'm feeling a little fire underneath me to get moving on things. Probably the one thing I am most excited about is shopping for my dress. Which is funny because 2 months ago I remember the mere thought of having to put on a wedding dress made my stomach churn. Thanks to weight watchers I am feeling much better about my self image and I'm looking forward to showing off the new bod. Don't get me wrong, I have a long way to go, but I'm confident that by July next year I will be at my goal weight.

The beauty about an informal wedding is that you can get away with a casually styled dress. Ideally, I'm looking for a short wedding dress, as they offer affordable comfort and practicality versus traditional gowns.

Short dresses are practical and comfortable to wear and won’t threaten to trip a bride up as she walks down the aisle....and we all know that if someone is going to fall, it's going to be me! Short dresses are also usually cheaper than a traditional gown due to simplicity of styling and less fabric used, so that's music to my ears (and checkbook). I also prefer a short dress because the weight of a long dress is simply too much to bear. It's going to be hot so the less dress I have to lug around the better. And probably the most important reason for me wanting a short dress is so I can dance, dance, dance!

I love this dress from Nordstrom's. You must go here to see it in full detail....amazing!

Found this one here and I love, love, love the tulle flowers.

But this one by Alfred Angelo has to be one of my favorites. It looks so comfy! Not to mention the chiffon, the rhinestones and the beading are to die for! I want it........badly!

I've heard the second one isn't as wonderful in person as it is in print. It could look awesome on you, though-- the flowers are a great detail! Love them all. They are very fun!!
