Picking the Dress

My sister is getting married in September.  I will be her matron of honor–although I prefer the “maid-of-honor” term because I feel matron reeks of old and frumpy and it sort of cramps my style. So…I have to find a dress. She’s given us a general guideline of color and that’s it. She wants it to have a vintage vibe too.

I’ve been pouring over ideas when I get a free minute to just peruse the internet. I keep going back to Shabby Apple again and again.

I love their dresses. They are just gorgeous. They all have that vintage clothing feel that I love.

I love Shabby Apple’s dresses…and, well…all their clothes for that matter. How do you pick a dress? What do you look for? I never go dress shopping. Pretty sure I’m going to order 15 of them and pick the best one. I’ll keep you updated….๏ปฟ


  1. It is hard to know what to pick when we have no clue what to really expect. I hate having to dress shop and I would need strict details on what the bride would or would not want. I think that your choices are adorable but Iโ€™m not sure any really scream matron of honor.

  2. Oh man, I love #3! I do wear a lot of dresses…kinda comes along with being Mrs. Pastor, ha ha, but I've been to Belk once or twice and I know they have nice dresses. Although, nothing like Shabby Apple. I've heard Mod Cloth has awesome vintage style dresses too. But I'm sure you'll look amazing in anything you pick!

  3. Another great site
    is eShakti.com, where you
    can pick the length
    of your item as well
    as the neckline and
    if you want sleeves
    they will add them.
    Almost like custom
    made….and the prices
    are very reasonable!
    They carry sweet
    bridesmaids dresses
    and are giving away $25
    gift cards if you register
    with them, now.

    I also like Modcloth
    and Boden–and I
    think there are some
    great sales going on,

    Have fun choosing!

  4. I love dress number 3 the best, also. The only one I don't care for is number 2 since it has so much going on. My sister is getting married in March and I have no idea at this point what she is thinking about for dresses. She also wants a vintage feel for her wedding.

    Oh, And I agree with Amy about Mod Cloth. I love their clothes! Never ordered but love them. Some do look a tad short though ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Love #3. So simple and elegant and a great style to compliment the bride. 1 and 2 are nice but the details may cause them to be more a focal point than an accent. You want to not detract from the lady of the day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. So fun! I love dress three! I too think you should take a gander at mod cloth- but beware- for tall girls like us many of their dresses are a bit short. And I know how you like to 'bust a move' at weddings.
