- Wedding: October 2011
I’m bored today (clearly not working hard) and thought it’d be fun to go through the dresses that I can close to getting!
First, the one I traveled to Chicago to try on. I was sure it was the one:
Bad sneaky fitting room picture! But at any rate, I basically broke out in hives in it because it was terrible on me! Felt like a prom dress!
Next, the Pronovias that shocked me in Chicago! I never would have thought I’d love this dress but I did.
I LOVE this dres, to this day, however it just was not right for the wedding I am having! Seriously, never would have guessed I’d love cap sleeves and all lace!
After Chicago and the devastation of not liking the Liancarlo I was sure I’d love, I went back to my all time love Jim Hjelm:
Ok, I tried to turn it, not sure if it did or not! Anyways – this dress too was so different from anything I’d imagined! If I would have had a summertime wedding this would be my dress for sure!!!
After months of looking, I finally found the “one”…I loved her! So simply and elegant! She’s Maggie Karena Royale – she was comfortable and practicle! Perfection.
And then we tried on one more, just because it was so different and definitely had a classy edge to it:
And boom…she was everything I needed that made it so I could buy it an be thrilled! I just LOVED her! Whats fun to note is that I tried this dress on once before and didn’t do backflips! But the second time around I realized it really had the WOW factor I wanted! Here she is all altered and in the right colors:
I am SOOOO excited to wear her next weekend!
I had a CRAZY all over the board dress shopping experience…anyone else have a few close calls?
