A bride’s search for THE dress is a daunting but exciting time. I had many mixed feelings about going wedding dress shopping: fear of not finding the right one, dread of feeling too fat to look good in them, joy at thinking of yourself on your wedding day, and relief that you are finally getting to shop for a wedding dress for an actual wedding for yourself! I had poured through bridal magazines tearing out pictures of gowns I loved for 5 months before I went gown shopping. My mom flew out to LA and we went to a couple of bridal boutiques in an effort to track down the perfect dress. It was such a memorable experience that we had together, and not just because of a Denzel Washington encounter that we had on our way home! In the end I found my perfect gown, the one I had loved most from my magazine ripping phase, and the first one I tried on.

Luckily for the newly engaged, there are many gorgeous gowns from the Spring 2010 season to choose from. Here is a wrap-up of the highlights, plus a few of my all-time favorite from past seasons:
