I had my 1st Dress shopping experience over the weekend, and let me tell you…. ‘Tis mucho fun. 🙂 I had no idea what to expect even after reading countless blogs and researching this subject endlessly.
I had my Mum, sister and MOH join me for moral support and general opinions. Needless to say, they know me better than anyone in this world, so it only made sense that i invite them along. I am so glad i did. They were so damn helpful! 😉 Thank you so much my loverlies! Thanks to the MOH for hookin up the champagne! So thoughtful <3! Loveth youze!
I also heeded the advice of many and decided to go in Spanx.. (haha my 1st pair!) Really good idea for the brides that feel a lil awkward changing in front of absolute strangers. It made the process so much more comfortable for me.
So, i went into my first dress shop a bit nervous but open minded as i could be. I had in mind a few dresses i wanted to try but as soon as i got through the shop doors, i seemed to forget everything i had researched. (Ha! Typical.) Luckily, MaryAnn (The woman helping me) seemed to have a better idea than i did. She pulled the dresses i requested (Mostly Maggie Sottero dresses) but also pulled out a few she thought i should try. I am so glad she was there to help.
I went in hoping/determined to buy the Maggie Sottero Destination wedding gown (Style RD1044)
Unfortunately, after trying this on, i didnt feel the ‘wow’ factor. It was a really pretty dress, but just not enough of the stunna i wanted it to be. So after a few more dresses in this style, i began to feel i wouldn’t find any that i would love but wasn’t too bummed about it since it was my first attempt. However, MaryAnn decided to let me try on a brand new Casa Blanca gown that had come in the day before. No one had tried it on so it was in perfect condition, it was just a little too big but i got the general idea of how it would look. So here is the dress that is now in 1st place:
What a drastic change from the former, right?! This dress is so ,mega-awesome when tried on! This photo does it no justice, the dress has so much beautiful detailing its a pity the photos don’t depict that. But i think you get the idea… So if i don’t find another dress that trumps this one… This might possibly be the win.
What do you think? Is this a win?
