Ladies, you are going to want to creep this.

so I'm getting married. You know, that thing that little girls are suppose to have been planning since they were four. They have their colors chosen, their favorite flowers, where they want to be married.... yada yada yada.... all that jazz. This girl? she didn't. All she knew was that she was going to be wearing a white dress (she might have secretly picked out that dress when she was in highschool, but considering how I'm failing in all the other wedding prep plans? I think we can call it even). Yet despite being 99% positive that the dress she had loved since highschool was the dress of her dreams, there were two things that were in the way....
1.) Kylie's dream dress cost.....lets just say... a car.
 2.) the model wearing the dress was really beautiful... Kylie did not look like the model... in fact, Kylie is a foot shorter than the model, which could make the dress look very.... different.

So what did we do? What every girl secretly wishes for. We went dress shopping and had a bridal consultant bring me dresses like I was a Bridezilla waiting to emerge.

Here we have Dress A: a lovely mermaid

Dress A has got that lovely "I'm a white beta fish." look.

Then we have Dress B, which I fondly call "Little bow peep" dress.
Has anyone seen my sheep?
No? no sheep sightings?
but I bet you didn't miss that hiney action.
BAMB. my behind.

This is Dress C: "The other bride's bridesmaids' favorite"

They said they had seen several girls try it on,
and I was the only one to successfully pull it off...
That Bride kind of looked like a bridezilla after they said that....
of course she had just tried on said dress.....

look!! I'd get lost in embellishments!

Then there was Dress D: this stereotypical one.
Don't get me wrong~ it IS lovely
But the top was so constrictive, I couldn't dance.....

Dress E! I call it the bust enhancer.
because it made my girls look AWESOME.
so I had to throw on a vail so you wouldn't just stare at them.

Dress F: as in Flapperesque.
I liked the odd organic/almost classic vintagey feel of it.
I probably would have made my bridesmaids dress like flappers
if I chose it

Dress G: It made me feel like a silky curtain.
especially because I was all pinned up in the back
.... just hang me on a clothesline....

Dress H: Swan princess
This dress was awesome
the pricetag? not so much

awesomeness.... from behind.

Finally, Dress I.
it was a classic number,
with a lovely train

But.... ultimately..... I did not go with any of these dresses.
They just reaffirmed my desire for my dream dress.
Which I tried on the next day, and it was perfection.
So now I have a dress. Don't worry, it will be temple worthy.
I'm going to get married on March 17th in the San Diego Temple at 9am.

so, which one is your favorite?
which one do you think was my runner up?

Also, if you want to be a gem (you do, because then I will invite you to my wedding and you will get to see my real dress) you will visit one of my other blogs here and leave it some love. like... a comment..... or some feedback... or the usual crap I beg you for.



  1. I like H the Swan look!!! You've never been an ugly duckling in my eyes so I am glad you did not go with the Swan look. You are soo Beautiful!!! I love you bunches!!!

  2. I loved the swan one! Can't wait to see your real dress though. I have no doubt it's as gorgeous as you are! :)

  3. i vote real dress. real dress is amazing. if i am correct about what dress is said " real dress", you have made the right choice :)

  4. NO. Wear a white towel and have and Old Spice wedding.

  5. I adore all of you. I was thinking of going Lady gaga and wearing a trashbag..... making some outlandish claim about the environment.

  6. That would be so fantastic! Only you could pull that off.
