I recently looked at my calendar for the upcoming months, and realized that my husband and I have two weddings we have to go to. One is in early June and the other is around Labor Day. The Labor Day wedding is not bothering me, as I know I still have time to find a wedding dress for this beach wedding. My worry is about the upcoming one in June, as I totally forgot about it with the recent winter weather and repairs we had to made to ice dam damage. The last thing on my mind was finding the perfect dress for a summer wedding. But, now with only two months away, I can't delay in looking.
I don't know about you, but when it comes to dress shopping for any occasion, I am not that excited about going into stores and doing the whole trying on dresses and modeling in front of a mirror. Maybe it is because of a little self-consciousness after having the girls and still having a little tummy. Or, maybe it is because I have little ones, my mind is always going on what to do next, that I don't find pleasure anymore in clothes shopping like I used. Before the girls, I could spend the entire day shopping with girlfriends and hitting one mall after another, until we were all shopped out. Now, the idea of taking the girls with me, or trying to find a sitter or ask my husband who just groans to watch the girls for a couple hours, is stressful enough. By the time I get to a store, I just want to get in and out, and home.
While I am not a fan of driving to stores, trying out outfits and waiting in lines to pay, I do like to shop online, and find myself doing the majority of my family's shopping for food, household goods, clothing and more online. I love being able to click, find deals online to save even more without the hassle of coupons not being taken at stores, and sitting back and waiting for the stuff to arrive at our doorstep. Now, how is that for convenience! :-) I save on gas, hassle of finding a sitter or attempting to take the girls shopping, and don't have to worry about lines. I can shop any time of day, and have time to spend with the girls instead of worrying about planning another shopping trip.
Because I only have a little less than two months to shop for and order a dress in time for my friend's upcoming wedding, I have been scowering the Internet for formal dress sites. My recent search resulted in my stumbling across JJ's House.

I found myself getting lost in this website, as I couldn't stop browsing each and every dress category and looking at the beaitufl selection of dresses. Even though I am already married, I couldn't help but look at the new styles of wedding dresses for 2014. I am so envious of the ladies getting married this year, as they get to choose from gorgeous dresses like these...
And, bridesmaids get to dress in style with fun and flattering styles like these....
Gone are the days that you dreaded being chosen as a bridesmaid as you hated the styles of matching dresses available. I have a few bridesmaid dresses I have moved to the back of my closet, as they will never come back in size. Maybe one day the girls will be able to use them as dress up, as a costume, or create their own designs with these dresses. :-)
When it came to looking at the cocktail dresses and wedding guest dresses available at JJs House, I couldn't help but save the following dresses as potential dresses for the upcoming June wedding...
Can you believe this A-Line/Princess V-neck Knee-Length Dress with Beading is only $89.99
A-Line/Princess Strapless Knee-Length Chiffon Dress With Sash Flower(s)
This right now is my favorite and the one I am leaning towards buying -- and, it is only $87.49.
A-Line/Princess V-neck Knee-Length Chiffon Dress With Ruffle
This is the second runner up - Only $77.49 -- A Steal!!!
I just need a little bit more time to browse the top of line dresses that are oh so affordable from JJ's House before making a final decision and ordering online. Customer service is important to them, and they make the whole buying and checkout process easy. They also delivery worldwide, which is nice for shoppers who have friends and family coming in from all over for a wedding or special event, to be able to shop online and delivery dresses anywhere.
