So I have tried on so many dresses that I had settled for the fact that there was no perfect dress for me and that I was just not one of those girls who would have a “dress moment” where I did all that corny crying etc. Well boy was I wrong. So here is what happened at my appointment at Davids Bridal. Mind you this appointment was just for fun yesterday as I won a contest to have my wedding dress made. So here goes.
I tried this dress on first simply because it was similar to the dress that I sent over to the dress maker that I thought I was in LOVE with! Well I didnt like anything about that dress when I finally got it on. Whoops! (and im sure you can tell by my facial expression)
Then I tried on this one. It was alright. I didnt really like what the fabric did around the waist. Overall it made my hips look big and the sweetheart dip was way too much for my smaller chest. I still had fun it it before I took it off though…
And then there was Vera….every since the Vera Wang White collection came out at Davids Bridal I thought “big whoop the dresses are totally ugly”. My FI actually saw this dress on the davids bridal website and thought it was cool. He is a big fan of tulle on wedding dresses and I have always wanted something lace so he thought it would be the best of both worlds. So she takes the dress off the mannequin and here we go….. I immediately fell in love! I cried like a baby! So hard that I had to take off my fake eyelashes. She is the one….
Called the dressmaker when I got home and told her all about it. She said what she would do was make me a rehearsal dinner dress and and awesome mantilla veil (veils are expensive!! who knew?)
So thats all. Im so excited! Now someone please remind me to STOP LOOKING AT DRESSES!!

Even funnier….there were two girls trying on bridesmaids dresses in the exact color that I want for my bridesmaids. The store consultant asked them if they would come and stand next to me so that I could see what the color looked like next to my dress. I have to find the picture….we were all posed like it was THE day. LOL
