Contemplating a Different Kind of Wedding Dress

The first weekend in August, we are going to California to go to the wedding of Lauren and Carl. For your typical wedding reception, I will pull a dress out of my closet and not think twice about it. The last wedding I went to was my sister’s, and I did obsess about finding a good dress for it, but not at all to the extent to which I am obsessing now.

Why the obsession? I don’t know. Maybe I haven’t been feeling so pretty lately so I want a lovely dress to cheer me up. Maybe it is because I only want to buy dresses anymore, so finding the right dress that is even more special and appropriate for a wedding is all the more difficult, because most dresses seem like I would wear them every day. Maybe it is because the wedding is in Southern California, and it is hard to find a good dress that is both beautiful and something that a 30 year old Mormon girl can get away with and still look hot.

The most beautiful dresses that I have found so far are slightly above my price range. My birthday is coming up, but I think these would require being the combined birthday present for my next few birthdays.

But for a moment, let me just think how lovely it would be to walk in wearing one of the following:

This one is my favorite from Proenza Schouler, there are many things that I probably would do for this dress –

And then there is this lovely little Narciso Rodriguez number –

Of course, there always has to be a Zac Posen making the short list as well –

The last dress is a Burberry dress that might actually be on the edge of affordability, and I might consider its delicate folds and lovely color –

Sigh. There is my permitted wandering into the realm of materialism for the week.
