On Friday I took my first trip to a bridal store to try on dresses! I wasn’t planning on starting so early but when I got an email saying “Dress Sale – 40,000 dress marked down to $599” I had to gather my girlfriends to check it out!
Well it took me about 8 dresses to find “the one”. It’s bittersweet because it wasn’t a long drawn out process, but I also feel like perhaps I didn’t have the whole experience? (My Mom came the next day before it was purchased and only saw me in 3 dresses).
Anyways I’ve been thinking about it ever since hoping I don’t feel any dress regret between now and the wedding set for November 2013. It was purchased in a 10 and I am generally a 6 so please keep in mind there are serious alterations to be made, including the sweetheart neckline (I am requesting a more defined smooth edge look)
Tell me what you think! =)
And the price was great too – $1050 for the dress, two-tiered veil with swarovski crystal edge and blinged out belt!

I think it is lovely and quite honestly most girls are going to be jealous that you didn’t have the 12 week long dress quest some people have to deal with.
I think you did great.

@globalmargaret: I guess when you start and finish within a couple of hours you can’t help but wonder, but you are right. Thank you!
@linz09: Thank you! 🙂

It’s very pretty!! I agree with globalmargaret, be thankful you found it so quickly! I’m going on my 4th appointment, and still haven’t found The One.. it’s getting discouraging and I’m getting worried I may be a little too picky! Your wedding is a while away, but hopefully if you love it so much now, you’ll still love it come your wedding!

@Soon2BMrs.T: You look amazing!! My dress was the first one I tried on… and I attempted like two other was like EWW why I am even still looking when that was it? I also didn’t have that whole experience which I was a little bummed about but then at all the fittings my family made me feel special 🙂 Congrats on finding your dress!!

I would have totally prefered only trying on a few dresses and finding “the one”. I went dress shopping 6 times and tried on about 100 dresses! It actually really confused me about which style I wanted! But in the end I ended up finding “the one”. I think that dress looks stunning on you! You also got a great deal which makes it even better!

That dress is incredible. Its hard when you buy your dress so early and that is something youll have to work through as time goes on. I bought my dress in November 2010 and wont wear it till July 2012 and its kinda killing me right now. but congrats its beautiful.

you look stunning! Seriously, great job and I also found ” the one” after about 20 minutes of trying on dresses, and haven’t had a single regret since and that was last August… GREAT choice!
