Windswept Wedding On The Beaches Of Tulum, Mexico
For me, the gown search was easy but ultimately surprising. I had an idea of what I wanted in my head – something light, romantic and different (but still in the realm of “traditional”). Initially, I went shopping on my own. I wanted to see what the dresses looked like on me without any additional thoughts or opinions. Everyone has their own idea of what a wedding dress should look like, and I wanted to make sure I stayed true to what I wanted.
After trying on what felt like a hundred dresses, I started to see a pattern in what I liked. No matter what store I was in, I would gravitate towards dresses with open backs and floral overlays. Sometimes they were white; sometimes they were blush. I made follow-up appointments at three stores, knowing I would come back to visit with my mom in town.
I returned to my search with my mom at my side. On a whim, we decided to make a last-minute appointment at The White Magnolia Bridal Collection that just happened to be around the corner from our last stop. They carried a number of Blush by Hayley Paige dresses, a designer I had been eyeing for quite some time. I found the perfect dress in the Nessy Gown – a blush sheath with a white floral overlay. The dress was light, flowy and perfect for a beach wedding.
