I did my research on wedding dresses, and had quite a few places for us to try. Unfortunately, the first day we didn't even find anything worth taking pictures of! The vintage stores were a total bust, and I was disheartened.
Day 2 of shopping was what we were both looking forward to because we were going to Vera Wang!!!! We both have dreamed of Vera Wang for years, and even though I knew I couldn't afford it, I just had to have the experience!
The boutique was 1/2 Vera Wang, 1/2 other designers and it was beautiful. While I had a ton of fun trying on the dresses (no pictures allowed, sorry), I didn't fall in love with any of Vera's. I did however, seriously consider two gowns that were completely out of my price range:
I could write a whole post about how much I love Reem Acra!
I was so close to getting this Elizabeth Fillmore dress.
We left the boutique, high on couture and headed to our last stop of the trip. I had an appointment to try on a dress that I had torn out of a magazine because of its' resemblance to my dream dress.
