I think it is safe to say that when a woman starts looking for a wedding dress, she starts on Pinterest. This may even be months or YEARS before she actually gets engaged and it may start with a super secret board where she stashes all her favorite things about weddings. Then, when she is ready to actually go to a store and have her “say yes” moment, she whips out her phone and starts showing her consultant all of the dresses that she loves from her (no longer secret) Pinterest board. But here’s the thing about Pinterest: Images stay on FOREVER. Which means that dresses you pinned even 3 months ago may not be available anymore; or dresses that you pinned may have been from 3 years ago and are definitely not available anymore. And, here’s another thing: some of the dresses are WAY over any normal person’s budget.
So I browsed Pinterest for some of the most pinned dresses that seem to come from an obscure source, and I am going to find REAL dresses that are currently available that you can try on and/or buy NOW that are similar to that dress. I have an obsession with guessing the designer of wedding dresses and dresses that celebs wear on the red carpet and I get it right most of the time, so this is just a super fun way for me to use that “talent.” Hope it helps you as you search!
As much as it pains, me I am going to give the links for these dresses that have been “most pinned.” It pains me because many lead to an online store where there is a strong possibility that it is a copy. Disclaimer: I am not endorsing ANY of these dresses. I am just trying to help YOU find YOUR dress.

If you were one of the thousands who pinned the mermaid dress with tatoo lace and illusion back with buttons, then do yourself a favor and fall in love with the dress below from Essense of Australia. Same concept, great designer, impeccable fit and construction. You. Will. Love.

If you love the spaghetti strap, natural waist dress with a tulle skirt above, try this one from Blue Willow Bride. So simple and pretty.
