- Wedding: November 2014
I always through I was going to end up with an all lace sheath dress or a fit and flair, something very chic and mature, well, as my wedding planning progressed and I tried on more dresses I was finding that the lace dress was not actually fitting my vision of a wedding. My budget was initially set at $1200, and had heartbreak over a sample gown that was perfectly my size and cost $1800. I left the sample in the store and said I needed time to think about it and I would call back in a couple hours to let the consultant know if I would be getting it or not. She said that would be fine and it was the end of the day so she would hold it until I responded. Well when I called abck to get the dress that was $600 over my budget she informed me that a bride who saw me in the dress purchased it when I left, before she could put it on hold. Heartbreak. Since that moment I could not find a lace dress that lived up to my emotions of the first dress so I ultimately scrapped the lace idea and went in a new direction. I was adamant that $1200 was not going to get me that great of a dress. Well here I am down to the wire of having to order my dress this month and I am mulling over dresses that are under $700, ball gowns, nothing like I had initially dreamed, but super pumped to have found something almost half of my budget! Woo Hoo for being under budget!!!
I was leaning towards Mori Lee 4808 for the past 2 months, but now that I know I need to order I found and fell in love with Mori Lee 67491 which has a little bit of lace on it. I think the thought of having to make a final decision and order it making me rethink my initial gut feeling to go with 4808.
I need some help to decide. So a little bit about my wedding so you can help me pick one that best fits.
We are getting married at a country club, are inviting around 200 people, colors are a variety of ivory, nudes, champagne, gold, blush pinks and white. We are doing hydrangea centerpieces with cream and bluch roses in mercury glass vases, and LOTS of votives everywhere. We will have candles of all heights, and a few tall stemmed votive holders with floating candles but only on the long tables of 10/12 people. My bridesmaids are all going to be in long dresses in a variety of fabrics and colors, some gold sequins, some pink chiffon etc. Here are some photos similar to what we will be doing for our wedding just to get a visual to help decide on a dress that will go.
Rough odea of what we are doing for centerpieces.
