Playing dress up was a huge part of my childhood. I also spent a lot of time throwing weddings for my Barbies. So when I got engaged, I couldn’t wait to get to play dress up in the prettiest dresses I’ve ever seen. I was like a kid in a candy store getting to try on all of the beautiful gowns. I committed to trying on all the dresses – no matter how outrageous or extra. I was basically like, “bring me all the tulle and glitter and pops of colour.” And although I was so happy when I finally said yes to the dress, I also was a little bit sad that dress up time was over.
So, when David’s Bridal invited me in to play dress up in some of their gowns and accessories, I couldn’t pass it up. I know it’s a risk to try on wedding dresses after saying yes to the dress, but I just couldn’t help myself. Below, I’ve put together 3 different looks for 3 different wedding types. Check it all out and let me know your fav!
Look #1: Fairytale
This Vera Wang gown seriously has my heart. The flower belt is actually removable as well. This look is all about feeling like a princess. I added a cute little veil, a sparkly clutch and beautiful rose gold earrings. I love all of the layers of pink tulle. You can’t help twirling in this dress.

Look #2: Destination
This next look is all about an easy-breezy destination wedding look. This gown is so light and easy to wear. I also chose a block heel to help make walking in the sand a little easier. I skipped the veil and instead opted for a really pretty crown headband. The back of this dress would also be perfect for a more traditional wedding. This dress is so pretty and versatile. It also has a pink tone to it that doesn’t really show up in these photos, but it’s seriously dreamy. I added a white, lace clutch and a diamond bracelet to finish off the look. I also put my hair up, since most destination weddings take place in hot weather and it’s so much easier to manage this way.

Look #3: Ballroom/Glamorous
This next look brings the drama. The cathedral veil adds so much glamour to this look that would be perfect for a big ballroom wedding. I upped the glam factor with a statement necklace and didn’t shy away from an over-the-top platform pump. This veil was seriously fun to wear. It really had me rethinking the veil for my dress. This dress also has a hint of blush pink and I love how flattering the trumpet silhouette is.
