After reading my latest posts, I’m sure you are surprised to see me in a wedding dress. It is probably the last thing you would expect to see me in! I am excited to be a joining in on a fabulous event Feb. 28th at the Thompson Hotel, which benefits the Glass Slipper Project in Chicago. See below for details to come and I will be walking the runway in one of these gorgeous dresses!
You know I love a good excuse to wear a gorgeous gown and the Glass Slipper Project is a wonderful organization that provides gowns/dresses and accessories to girls going to prom that can not afford it. I love this organization and will be donating some items for the upcoming Prom season.
Dimitra’s Bridal Couture had me come in for my fitting and I spent a hour trying on the most beautiful gowns. It is every girls dream to try on a gown for no reason :). Dimtra’s will be one of the wonderful vendors at the event and several ladies will be walking down in their dresses.
My general top 5 tips in buying a gown?
Buy tickets here and join me!
Top 5 tips
#1 – Know your budget
#2 – Know what silhouette looks good on you, but be open to trying on a variety
#3 – Keep location in mind (is it beachy, formal, cocktail?)
#4 – If you are shopping for a wedding dress, remember alterations, and accessories add into the budget. You’d be surprised how much you end up spending when you said your budget is a certain amount
#5 – Take a photo of yourself in the few dresses you love( if you can’t decide) it makes a world of difference as you don’t want to hate seeing yourself in a photo!
#6 – Do not try on something outside your budget. It is bad news :). It has happened to me before and all you can think of is something you can’t afford.
I hope to see you at Thompson Chicago, it will be a great time with food from Nico Osteria, fashions from Oak Street and I would love to meet you!.
