Hi everyone! I JUST got engaged - like, less than a week ago - and so far have been browsing the boards, tools, etc. and finding everything extremely helpful. I haven't even attended that many weddings in my life, nevermind even thought about planning one, so I'm a little overwhelmed! A few questions:
1. Where are some good spots to go try on dresses? I've seen a million online, and I know what styles I like LOOKING at, but I don't know what styles look good ON me yet. My parents are flying out from the East Coast soon and I want to shop for dresses while my mom is here, so any suggestions about stores (other than basics like David's Bridal) would be great.
2. Venues??? I think our budget is going to stick to around $10k for our reception for about 100-120 guests. We've only researched online (plan on checking some out soon!) but LOVE what we've seen at places like the Bristol Hotel in Gaslamp. We live in Oceanside so really anywhere along the coast is doable, just wondering if anyone had experience with that particular venue.
Thanks for all your help so far - this is so exciting!
