Lots of women know what dress they want to rock as they walk down the aisle. They see it in a magazine or have shopped before or they spot it on the TV in a show or movie. If they don't know the exact dress, then most know what style they are going for. I didn't know what dress I wanted but I definitely knew what style I wanted - something tea length, retro, puffy, unique, and detailed. Oh and sleeves. I wanted sleeves!
I decided to start my dress shopping at Ve'Lace Bridal in Bellingham, MA. My maid of honor, Red, got her dress there when she was shopping and the staff there were so great and everyone was so awesome to Red that I knew I had to include Ve'Lace when I started shopping.
