wedding dress shopping in SF

white wedding dresses

Marissa and I, along with her maid-of-honor, Kaley, and two of her five bridesmaids, Petra and Jessica, went wedding dress shopping on Saturday.

We visited two bridal shops and although the girls and I thought Marissa looked beautiful in nearly every dress, we have yet to find The One.


Marissa’s attendants were so helpful in finding dresses to try on! I just sat back and watched as they helped her choose dozens of dresses. What I loved most was how open she was to their choices. I knew some were not her style, but she gave all the dresses a fair shot.

I am not permitted to show you, Marissa, in any of them, but these “bottom half” photos will give you a small glimpse into our Saturday.

And into the variety of styles and fabrics, she slipped on, one after another after another.

These seven images are a drop in the bucket.

After a long afternoon of shopping, we came back to my hotel room, where the girls took a little time to reconnect to the rest of the world.


Wedding dress shopping is hard work!

Marissa, Kaley, and I are visiting one more shop today. Even if we don’t find “The Dress” over our long weekend, Marissa and I have an appointment at BHLDN at the end of December, while we are in Chicago for my niece’s wedding.

The perfect dress is out there and we intend to find it!
