- Wedding: May 2013
I live in a rural part of New Mexico, and there is almost NOTHING for me in the way of wedding dresses – especially considering that I’m a plus-size bride. David’s Bridal is pretty much the end of it, and I’ve been to two different stores and found nothing I was willing to pay hundreds of dollars for. Anything other than DB would require several hours of driving, and as a busy grad student I can’t really take the time off to travel. So, all that being said, I knew I would be buying online. I found a very reputable site that has an actual real store attached and is authorized to sell all their lines (www.weddingshoppeinc.com) so buying online doesn’t bother me all that much.
The problem with ordering online, of course, is that I don’t get to try anything on. Instead I went through pictures of me in various styles from DB to try and decide what I liked and what looked good on me. I picked my dress – the Allure W270 – a gorgeous chiffon number with a corset back (my only must-have). I’ve been planning on getting it for a while now, just saving up the moolah. Unfortunately I have a problem with dress porn, so I kept looking at wedding dresses just because. This morning I stumbled upon something that made my breath catch and my heart race – the Bonny Unforgettable 1219.
I’ve never had a physical reaction to a dress before, especially just a picture of one. Even the Allure, which I was quite fond of, didn’t evoke that kind of ardor. I just stared at it for a while before rushing off to try and find pictures of it on real brides. No such luck. BUT my real question is this… should I keep with my original plan of the Allure or go with the Bonny. The Bonny is only about $70 bucks more expensive and is still well under my budget, so price isn’t a big deal.
I can’t try them on, so I’ll post the pictures on the models. Help??
