In my opinion, trying on wedding dresses is the most humbling experience of my life. Essentially, you’re in a room with another person, practically butt naked, trying to squeeze into sample size dresses (if you’re a size 2, bless your tiny little heart), only to have them gather above your ample hips. Good god, if I never have to try on another dress it would be too soon. Luckily, the people at Junko Yoshioka are amazing and made the experience not so horrible. I pretty much had in mind what dress I wanted, but tried on a bunch just for the heck of it. It should be said that Junko does the most amazing wedding dresses I’ve ever seen. The whole time I’ve researched wedding dresses I’ve hated about 99.9% of them….either they were too poufy, or too romantic, or too sparkly….where were my simple, architectural looking dresses? I didn’t have to look much further than her website. Here were some of the ones I tried on…
After spending exactly an hour in the showroom, I had my dress picked out. Simple as that. Didn’t go to any other places, didn’t agonize over any decisions, I just knew which one it was going to be. So now that the dress is decided, I just have to kick butt in the gym to look good in it!
