After getting much support from the WB community, see here, I went for my FIRST LOOK today with my Fiance. (Yes, WITH my FI!) He was so supportive! He took pics and even took notes on his Blackberry as I was carrying on a conversation with the dress consultant and emailed it to me! 🙂 Yes, my beau is very, very sweet.
I’m glad I took him since he was very adament about not having any lace on the dress, but after seeing the dresses on me, he changed his mind! 🙂
Overall, it was a pleasant experience. We didn’t find THE dress, but I didn’t think we would on the first visit. I plan on leaving him out at this point; we got to share the experience, we got a good idea on what to look for, and now, it’s up to me and my girls (including mom) to pick one! Yay!
Here’re some pics from today – enjoy and let me know which one you like the most (with the focus on general shape). Thanks!

Are you looking for strapless or with straps? I like the one labeled “Q.jpg”, so dress 4? Not sure how the numbering system is working here, lol!

4 looks so wonderful on you, though they’re all really pretty. I love the detail on the train 🙂

I loved the first dress because it’s different.

Shoot, the # system is confusing, isn’t it? I modified the details to make it more clear.
Thanks for the votes! It’ll help me greatly in narrowing down and in my future “looks/shopping trips”! 🙂
FYI, #2 – francesca got FI’s vote. He says he could see more of me in that dress neckline (more open, I guess?) .. not quite sure what he meant. He didn’t (did not) mean that it was more “me” stylistically…more having to do with the neckline……

Oh gosh, I love the Parker on you!
And, also I have to say that i do enjoy the James clifford 1820…is it a one strap dress? My dress is the 1825…and it is strapless, but it looks almost exactly the same…

#1 and #4 frame your body the best, but I’m not fond of #1’s tiered look…
