- Wedding: April 2013
I think I found my dress! I went to a fabulously reviewed bridal shop in Birmingham, MI (Bridal Couture).. and after mentioning a few lacey Jim Hjelm numbers and finally the famous Pronovias Finiesterre my amazing sales attendant, Carol, led me back to the Pronovias room.. and pulled out the new 2013 Diciembre!
I had tried on about 20 dresses over the past 2 months (we got engaged in April!).. and while everything was so fun and sparkly and wonderful in my eyes this dress REALLY popped out the very moment I saw it! OMG, I burst out crying!
I’m a full figured size 16 right now.. after dropping 25lbs since engagement. Our date is April 20, 2013.. so I’m thinking of perhaps ordering this in a size 12! Fortunately Carol told me I’d have until November to place my order, in order to receive it on time! Do you bees think that’s cutting it too close? I AM determined (on Shakeology, low cal diet.. and working out fiercely 6 days/week! Plus I plan on shipping myself off to a serious adult fat camp in Texas for 2 weeks in October!) .. so I’m hoping by fall I’ll know if I should go with a 14 or 12.
* Is Pronovias good with shipping in 3 months?
* I’ve read Pronovias is 1 size off, versus the normal 2 sizes in sizing. What are your experiences?
* I didn’t fit into the sample! 🙁 Has any of you ever ordered without actually trying the sample on? How did that turn out?
* How pretty is this dress!? I’m so in love.. I definitely need to look into a gorgeous sash to perfect it (it didn’t come with one!)
