I didnt think it would happen again. That moment of being overjoyed with finding “THE ONE!” You ladies know what I’m talking about!
I’ve been bitching, moaning, complaining and feeling seriously sorry for myself because the dress I originally ordered was discontinued. Couple that with trying on at least 10-15 absolutely beautiful dresses in the last 2 weeks but still not getting THAT feeling again left me feeling super sad… until Saturday! This was my second appointment at this bridal shop and I walked in knowing I was going to see some pretty dresses but also knowing I wasnt going to find “THE DRESS” (or so I thought!)
BUT this is it! I found “THE ONE” and I am absolutely over the moon about it! This is nothing like I thought I wanted originally but everything that fit me to a “T”. We even had to break the tissues out! I cannot wait until it comes in to the shop in November/December!
Sorry for all the weird markings. Didnt want random folks in the 1st pic without their approval!
Here is the detailing of the bodice (forgive my hanging smiling bottom lip):
It even has polka dots which I am obsessed with! (well swiss dot lace anyway!):
I am absolutely head over heels for this dress:
Now I have to find different shoes because the colorful ones I originally wanted to order simply will NOT work with this dress.

It really wasnt something I thought I wanted and for it to be lace AND beaded its super light. It is SO not what I was thinking of and the more I look at it, the more I love it. I cannot wait to get it in my size so it can hug my body the way it should. It was folded over 3-4 times and still not tight enough.
The neckline even has tulle which I HATE but it gives the softest pleating ANDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD (insert drum roll here) There is NO CRINOLINE!!!!!
What a happy fiancee I am. 318 more days to go!!!!!!!
ETA: it also has button down the back that go to just under my bum! Does it get any better than that? If you cant tell I am TOO excited!
