Ok so… I’m sitting at my office SO antsy because I have an appt to try on THIS baby which finally arrived on Friday!! I also have my shoes and jewerly ready to go in the car. Just want to speed through this day and see my beautiful gown!! Ahhh kinda nervous, too..!! Anyone else get nervous jitters before seeing their dress for the first time? OMG did I gain a few (I did.) Will I love it as much (I hope!) Share your “see-it-for-the-first-time” experiences!!!
Here she is, Allure C207 in light gold, the day I bought her:
And here are my shoes, Ann Taylor Perfect Crystal Pumps: I CANNOT wait to see the shoes with the dress… MY dress, not the sample, ahhh!!!!
Thanks for looking, girls!!! Would love any feedback or shared experiences to get me through this work day!!! xxoxo

@kmconda: Here’s the updated pics…. complete with shoe shots and my veil!!!
The verdict: It IS a little snug…. and I feel like my belly and backside may need a little work (or spanx!) before the big day in November…. I was skinny and stressed (work-related) when I was fitted.. now I’m fat and happy in my new position and it shows!!! Ahhh oh well… gotta make it work! Still love the dress despite a little tightness in the middle…. what do you think?? xox

@kmconda: It LOOKS perfect and gorgeous — visually, the fact that it’s a bit snug doesn’t show at all. And you’re still very slender even if you weigh more than you did the day you first tried it on! It’s amazing on you.

That’s so exciting! The dress is super pretty and you look great 🙂
I think I just had a mini heart attack when I saw your wedding date… it’s 2 days before mine and I haven’t even found a dress yet!

@orchidaloha: Don’t have a heart attack!!! You have plenty of time!!! I didn’t plan on getting my dress so early but happened to stumble upon it at a trunk show in February and jumped at the opportunity for a discount!! You’ll find something you love soon!! Any ideas about what you want?
