Lace Two-Piece Dress // White Off-the-Shoulder Maxi // Perfect Opportunity White Maxi
With bridal season just around the corner, I wanted to share all about my experience with a long white dress for engagement pictures!These were taken over two years ago when we went to Greece, and I kept thinking about if I wanted to wear a maxi or a mini and had such a hard time choosing. I ended up choosing a maxi because I loved the romantic look they have! We actually took our engagement pictures in Santorini! We knew we were going to be there when in the summer we planned to take our engagement pictures, and thought how beautiful it would be to get them done there. Hands down the best decision ever!
I was worried about finding a photographer, but I literally just jumped on instagram months before our trip and found a photographer and reached out to him. He was amazing! He brought us to the most beautiful places and we got the most beautiful pictures.
The dress I ended up getting is actually a bridesmaids dress that Lulus sold and my sister ended up wearing the exact dress in petal pink for her maid of honor dress for my wedding. It was so romantic. They don’t have it on their site anymore but I linked similar ones and ones that I would have worn too!
Where are your engagement pictures being taken? Are you taking honeymoon pictures too?

They have this amazing dress in blue, white, red, and black. I have been obsessing over this for a while now and have wanted to buy it in white. I knew I had a good friends bridal shower coming up and knew this dress would be perfect for the occasion. I received so many compliments on it and got asked so many questions on the fit. I got this in a medium, but it was actually kind of big. I pinned it so you can’t really tell but i found myself constantly pulling it up throughout the day. Based on my measurements and their size chart I should have gone with a small. Make sure to always check the chart against your measurements! Overall I absolutely loved this dress and purchased it in the red color too! Perfect for any occasion and so beautiful.
These shoes are so comfortable. I actually purchased them last June for my bridal shower and they are a constant now. I bought them from Nordstrom Rack and they are called “Liliana.” They are no longer available but I linked an almost identical pair.

Wedding season is upon us! I remember when I got married in September and all of the events for our wedding were coming up, I had the hardest time finding white dresses I loved. So, if you are getting married or even just need a white dress, look no further. I have linked my favorites in this post, but if you look on their websites they have other gorgeous white dresses too. I always find the most on Lulus!
I actually wore some of these dresses for my rehearsal dinner & honeymoon! See below so you can see how they look on. I apologize for the dark picture, it was taken in my church with a phone camera. But I loved both dresses and would refer them to anyone!
Let me know if you have any questions about the sizing or fit at any of the stores! What are your favorite white dresses?
