- Wedding: August 2013
Well ladies this is my first post, but I’ve been a long time lurker.
FI and I are getting married on August 4th, 2013. So far we are right on track to have everything together well before then. The only thing I was dragging my feet on was the dress.
I hadn’t started looking until January, and thought that I was going to have a replica made of Jenny Packham’s Dentelle. I loved (and still do) this dress, I even went to try on the real thing at a local bridal salon. But as the date loomed closer, I was starting to realize that I was running out of time to have a dress made and shipped here with enough time before the wedding so that I could also have any minor alterations done if needed. And then, to top it off, my fabric samples from the replica company were lost in the mail. So it was back to searching.
After having gone to David’s Bridal, sample sales, and 3 different local bridal salons; I decided to go back to David’s Bridal (but this time to a much larger store). And that is where I tried on Melissa Sweets MS251007. It was the first dress I tried on at this visit, and it was love at first sight! A little bit of sparkle, a little tulle and a little modern. I am having the crinoline taken out because it’s too poofy for my taste, but other that that, it’s perfect! I cannot wait to wear this dress in a little more than 4 months (EEEK!)
