I’m so excited to write this – I found my dress and put down a deposit! I have now been engaged for 14 long months and have until today not tried on a single gown!! A lot of that was due to losing weight (50lbs!) and wanting to keep going, but I really needed to get this done! Today I went with my girls to two appointments and ended up with a gorgeous Mori Lee dress that I did not think I was going to like at all! It is so true when they tell you to try on everything because you just don’t know until you see it on yourself.
The first appointment was a bit of a bust. My sister picked a Casablanca gown (Diamond Collection A014) that was really pretty and actually in my size but I just did not like it. Nothing else really jumped out at me either and their samples were all so tiny that it was really hard to get a good gauge of what things were working and what wasnt. I tried on about 8 dresses and nothing was great and was not feeling very excited at that point… 2 just kinda “meh” dresses and nothing else.
The second shop was fantastic. The girl helping was so awesome. She was damn near inside of the dresses helping me into them (the girl at the other shop was so un-helpful) and really funny and knowlegeable. I must have tried on 15 at least at that shop. The Mori I picked was the 2nd one that I tried on! No tears or anything, but I just knew 😉 Enough yapping already – here she is… 1860!
