Its a beautiful dress. The bridal consultant was somewhat right about many brides not purchasing the dress they thought they wanted to begin with. But it was good idea for you to try on other dresses before you tried on this one…so that you were certain it was the one when you saw yourself in it.

@Brianna92714:  Thats a beautiful dress! I wish I had the right curves to wear something like that but at the same time, I love my dress. 

Every bridal consultant I talked to said the exact same thing. I found my original dress at a local bridal salon, tried it on fell in love with it. E-mailed a bridal salon in the states to see if I could get the dress a little cheaper as I felt it was a lot of money for a dress for 1 day. They responded “We stopped carrying the line 1 year ago as many brides expressed how cheap the material was for how expensive the dress way”. I went back and looked at the pictures I took and remembered how the fabric felt and knew they were right. It would be like paying $2000 for the dress but using material that would cost no more than $500. So I went back to the drawing boards and chose a completely different dress. I don’t have any pictures of the old dress, I deleted em but I will show the links to both. I don’t have pics of the new dress because the owner of the salon was in and she doesn’t like people taking pictures (from what my consultant was telling me). 

First dress: Only reason I fell in love with it is because it is sooooo not me and was the first dress I saw on a poster for plus size dresses and for some dumb reason I had to try it on

MY DRESS: I have decided to go with Julietta by Mori Lee. Quality is so much better and I didn’t want to take it off when I was in the store. (I’m not really the drying type so by knowing I didn’t want to take it off, I knew it was the one).
