Not going to sugar coat… Wedding dress shopping was one of the most stressful parts of wedding planning for me. It took several appointments, ever more budget adjustments and many retailers to finally find my dream gown… but when I finally did, such a weight was lifted off my shoulders!
I opened up more on this subject a few months ago, so you can read more of my wedding dress shopping confessions here. Let’s be honest, there are brides out there who are more than happy to be trying on a dress after dress. For me, it was quite overwhelming! After all, it’s such an important decision to make…
Since the wedding came and went, now I can finally share with you the exact moment I said yes to my dress at BHLDN! You all seemed to love my dress (when I shared it on IG) and that honestly makes my heart so happy! In fact, I’m already looking for another excuse to wear it again… So, if you’re a local photographer who wants to do some bridal portraits, hit me up! 😉
Ok, back to the video. Here’s the moment I said yes to my wedding dress!

If you’re a bride looking for a gorgeous wedding gown while keeping your budget in mind, please do consider visiting BHLDN. Each season they add many affordable options for you to choose from so it’s worth making several trips to their boutiques. In fact, I visited their Walnut Creek location in October 2018 for the first time and I didn’t make my decision until February the following year. By then, they already had new spring gowns available and that’s how I found my dream gown!
Since I purchased my dress, BHLDN released many more dresses that caught my eye. One of them is a similar style to mine but with long sleeves and less of a skirt! You can check it out here. To shop my exact dress, check out this link.
