I had just started my dress shopping journey yesterday with a trip to the White Gown in Brooklyn – which was awesome, by the way. My consultant was fantastic and they have a great selection of plus size dresses. I must have tried on eight or ten dresses there! But I was all, “not buying today, just looking, cause I have four other appointments and I’m not making a decision til I try on every dress in the universe, thanks.”
Then we went to Kleinfeld’s in the afternoon. I tried on a few pretty dresses, one definite “NO” and then…. the dress!
It’s nothing at all like what I thought I wanted, but when I stepped out of the dressing room and my mom and both bridesmaids – three women with strong style opinions and wildly different fashion tastes – all lit up and started nodding, I knew it was a serious contender. And then out there on the pedestal, all jacked up with the gorgeous beaded veil? I couldn’t help but say yes!

I had a little bit of insta-dress regret after signing the papers. The dress, while really pretty, is definitely NOT what I had envisioned. I wanted something really poofy and lacy and ethereal with tons of tulle – but those dresses didn’t look so good on me! (Which was especially clear once I saw the pictures of me in the dress I loved at the White Gown next to the pictures of me in this dress. I look twenty pounds slimmer and five inches taller in the dress from Kleinfeld’s!)
It’s a bit of an adjustment in my vision of my bridal self… but I think it was the right choice. 🙂

@KatieBklyn: That happened to me, too! Sometimes tons of tulle just isn’t flattering, as much as we want it to be.
But, the good news is, you look fabulous in the dress you bought!!! Plus, the back of it is super dreamy with the different types of tulle! Congratulations on finding such a great dress!
