I posted a few days ago asking for help on deciding between two dresses that I absolutely loved!! I got rave reviews for the ball gown, but many others liked the shape of the lace dress. I ended up choosing the lovely flowy tulle gown vs. the more fitted lace dress that shows off my figure. Because I won my first gown FREE at a bridal show, I decided that I could still get a fitted lace gown for the reception. That way I can have it all… sweet/angelic for the ceremony and Bowchikawowow for the reception. Well I didn’t expect to find something so soon for so CHEAP !!! A local event space hosted a “Fire” bridal sale where everything was seriously reduced. I was able to get a pretty beaded lace dress that I can comfortably dance the night away in and feel like a sexy (but elegant) married woman for $250!! I get so excited when I get good deals on things, and my FI is pretty happy too since we are paying for everything ourselves 🙂
I plan on making the top a sweetheart neckline, and either bustling or shortening the train. Obviously it will need to be altered to fit me perfectly, and I might need to slim down a few pounds, but overall I’m VERY happy and so is my wallet!!
Pictures never do rings or dresses justice!!! It gorgeous, sparkly, comfy, and light…perfect to party in! 🙂
