I Found My Dress!

Posted by Maya E.

Just when I had given up all hope, when I thought I might end up looking like an unsightly birthday cake, it happened…  I walked into BCBG looking for a dress for my rehearsal dinner and there it was…  MY WEDDING DRESS!

Trying on my dress in the BCBG fitting room


As I mentioned earlier, My fiancé Loren will wear all black All Star Chuck sneakers, with a black shirt and black suit (no tie).  His groomsmen will wear white and black Chucks, with a black suits and white shirt (still no ties.) He wants them to look like Yeshiva Bochers which they will- except with Chucks :) I wasn’t originally the biggest fan of the black sash on my dress, but now I think it will go perfectly with the guys’ Chucks and my bridesmaids’ black dresses…

After getting the dress, things just started falling into place.  My girlfriends and I accomplished the daunting task of lingerie shopping.  I have never worn lingerie before, and was honestly somewhat terrified.  We were a bundle of giggles in the dressing room trying to find ANYTHING that I did not find entirely trashy or just plain ugly.  I ended up going with the Betsey Johnson baby doll that we found at Bloomingdale’s. Ladies, I cannot recommend shopping with your girlfriends like this more.  It was such an amazing bonding experience!

OMG. Maya, the EXACT same thing happened to me, sort of (I’ll post about my dress hunt soon!) I had a dress, but it was too “wedding dress”-y and fancy schmancy and I guess I knew in the back of my mind that I didn’t love it. I walked into BCBG looking for a dress for something else and lo and behold, there was my new wedding dress!! I bought it on the spot. Not the same one as yours, but I did see yours there and loved it. You probably saw mine too, but I don’t want to give away the surprise just yet. :)

You look beautiful, btw!

Thank you girls so much for your kind words! DJ it is hilarious that you also got your dress at BCBG! I wonder if they’ll give us anything for all this free promotion! :)

Love the idea of chucks. We also wore them… I bought customized from their website and had them put “Mr & Mrs. G’ on them.
I surprised my hubby with them in the yichud room. They were a great feet saver during all the dancing… plus the boxes came in really handy… we hid them under the table and put the checks in ‘em! ;-)
