Dorothy's Wedding Wednesday: Dress Shopping!!

This was so much fun!

June 27, 2018


Omg I can't believe how fast the time has flown by! I'm ready, but not ready for the wedding lol. After months of planning, the day is almost here. I feel like we're 95% done with planning. All that's left is a few small things to buy. 

A couple of months ago, I went dress shopping with a few of my sisters and my little niece and it was so much fun! We drove up to Santa Ana to Hollywood Bridal. Two of my older sisters got their dresses there. When we arrived at the store, they gave us 4 binders filled with dresses to flip through, so each of us grabbed a booked and started marking dresses that we liked. My sisters and I have Asian efficiency flowing through our blood, so we had gone through all the dresses and selected our favorites within 5 minutes of sitting down. They weren't ready for the Tran clan! hahaha

The first dress I tried on was the one! (It's not featured in the video because I don't want Steven to see it before our big day.) I tried on a few others just in case, but I just knew I had to have the first one. I also got an áo dài, which is a traditional Vietnamese dress. I'll be doing a wardrobe change and wearing that while we greet tables during the reception. 

BTW, renting a wedding dress is the way to go! The dress I picked is a brand new one that hasn't been worn before. I'm renting that one and the áo dài for $500!! The shop will do all the alterations, all I have to do is pick it up, then drop it off after the wedding. 

I can't wait to show you my actual dress!!!! Talk to you next Wedding Wednesday :)
