dress obsess

I got it! My dress is in!

{It's taking every ounce of will power in me to see the dress hanging and not put it on. I want to wear this all.the.time.}

The first week of my summer, after semi recovering from pneumonia, my mom and I met my future MIL and SIL in Austin to pick up my dress! 

Let me just tell you how amazing this shop is. If you're a Texas bride it's worth the trip to Unbridaled. Suuuch a cute boutique.  They have a great selection of unique gowns and designers. The girls working there are also so super sweet, and very "Austin-cool".

{There's also a really awesome fabric store next door, which is an added bonus!}

I was having some serious anxiety before hand. Shortly after ordering my dress I thought I may have made the wrong choice.  I kept comparing pictures of myself in one dress I fell in love with (that fit me perfectly) with the one I actually purchased (that didn't fit at all) and I had convinced myself it was completely unflattering. The sweet stylist who dealt with this crazy, unsure bride was so great, answered all my emails quickly, and assured me it was the perfect choice and that it was totally normal for me to feel a little nervous about the choice. 

 **Future brides....delete ALL pictures of past dresses once you've made your choice!** 

Reality was though, the second I saw the dress hanging I knew it was exactly what I had envisioned. I was incredibly worried that I would hate it once MY actual ordered dress was in my hand but I loved it when I tried it on the first time and thankfully...I am now totally obsessed with it! 

After getting the dress nipped and tucked it will be everything I have ever wanted.  It is definitely the perfect dress for our day.  I am so excited that it is what I'll be wearing when I marry T! 

I am dying to give you more info but I'm going to resist. You should however, head over to Ivy & Aster's site and feast your eyes on some major eye candy.

such stunning dresses!

We went ahead and ordered the veil and sashes too {I decided to go with 2 for a two-tone double layer effect} 

Alright, alright, I give in! I'll give you a sneak of the sash I chose.

This sash will be layered over a wider taupe colored satin ribbon.


Normally I would end by saying something along the lines of "now hurry up October 5th!" but I'm actually really enjoying these last few months of wedding day prep and Houston fam/friends fun before I settle into married life. 


  1. That is so exciting! I ended up with a dress that had everything I "said" I didn't want. I fell in love the moment I put it on. I know you will be stunning, can't wait to see it.

  2. OMG send me a pic! I bought my dress in AZ and got married in AZ, so my dress stayed at my parents house in AZ until my wedding. It was the best thing because then I couldn't stare at it all day! And it's still there! I really need to get it back to Houston...

  3. I can't wait to see the dress, love the sash!
