Eeeek the dress. THE DRESS. It’s fair to say I love my clothes, and I’ve shared quite a few of my outfits on here, but this is by far the best outfit I’ve ever worn. 
My main wedding dress shopping goal was to find a dress I would be comfortable in ALL day. It’s always been a little confusing to me as to why you’d want to wear something that you wouldn’t be able to eat or breathe in. When we got engaged, I knew I wanted to wear a short dress - mainly because I wanted to show off my shoes, and also because I wanted to be able to dance my feet off without having my dress get in the way. 
It’s safe to say I’m a bit of an expert when it comes to shopping - it’s something I’ve clearly got from my mum. But, shopping for a wedding dress was a little bit different to other shopping trips I’ve been on. For a start, I don’t ever wear white dresses - not even in the Summer, so I did find that a tad weird. Secondly, wedding dresses can be expensive and when I first started looking I was slightly nauseous as to how much they were costing. I think it totally depends on where you want to spend your wedding budget, but our main budget priority was the food and drink - I was definitely more interested in our guests having a great time and eating amazing food, than spending a small fortune on a dress I’d only wear for one day. 
I only visited one Bridal boutique, and I tried on a total of 5 dresses - the third one being the one I went for. I did try it on twice before committing, the first time was just over a year before our wedding day which was a good test as I can be very indecisive but, I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I knew it was the one and, when I went the second time round with my mum, we were in and out of the boutique in less than 30 minutes.
My dress is from the Brighton Belle collection by True Bride and is called Lois. What I think made it more special for me is that it was created in Brighton, just like me! The polka dot tulle totally sold it to me, and it was so much fun to wear.
Plus, it allowed me to eat all the cheese I wanted and dance my feet off.
