    I chose a store because I had to go pick out a bridesmaid dress for a friend’s wedding. I decided if I was driving 45 mins out of DC (I’m a city girl with no car) I was bringing mom and we were going to try on dresses! It was meant to be a laid back day where we would have lunch together and browse dresses with my little sister as well, and then I found a dress, a simple a-line wth an ebroidered belt and organza layers that didn’t fit into any idea of what I thought I wanted. When I didn’t want to take it off and my cheeks hurt from smiling, I knew that was it! (no crying for me, just felt like my toes didn’t touch the ground for at least a week after!)

    I had a hard time finding gowns to try on that were in a 60 miles radius of me.  I live in Utah and the most common gown is a gown with sleeves (short) for temple weddings (read: modest).  I did NOT want sleeves.  If you went into a bridal shop, there was litterally ONE ROUND RACK of strapless gowns and that’s is. They kept telling me I could turn any sleeved gown into a “tube top” if I wanted.  WTF?  It’s not a tube top ladies. 

    I did find one dress at a smaple sale that is truly lovely and doesn’t need anything else but a hoop skirt.  However, it’s too fancy/big for my elopement.  I felt pressured to buy it due to the slim pickings and the great sale.

    That left the internet for me to looks for gowns.  Because I didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg, I found and bought 3 dresses online.  They were such good deals that none of them were returnable/exchangeable.

    That’s how I ended up with 4 dresses.  I sold one already.
