After a long, arduous search that involved hitting virtually every mid-level bridal salon in metro Atlanta, I just put the down payment down on my dress!!!!! I’m SO excited, and rather than bore friends/family, I figured I’d share with people who’ll ‘get it.’
It’s Anjolique #1010. My dress will be Light Ivory, but it’s pictured in Gold. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to share pics of me in it until mine comes in and it’s fully paid for; but you get the idea. I love that it’s basically a very traditional dress with some interesting contemporary elements. I also adore the fabric — Godavari silk. It looks like it costs several times more than it does.
I cannot wait till it comes in!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

@TheRen, I found it at Sweet Elegance Bridal in Decatur. I really can’t say enough good things about that place.
They don’t have the largest selection of plus size dresses, but what they did have was totally unique. I tried on at least 5-6 dresses in size 18 and up. They may have had a few more that would’ve fit. However, they don’t let you rummage. Instead, they try to match you with dresses based on your body type and personal style. They did a great job with me! They’re also very, very good at accessorizing — so good, in fact, that I plan to buy my earrings, fascinator, and possibly shoes there, too. I also loved the veil they showed me, but unfortunately, it’s out of my price range.
Best of all, the mother/daughter team who own it are incredibly nice and very sharp. Definitely go if your ego needs a boost. All the women who work there are just full of compliments and kind words. The gorgeous blonde size 2 bride who was in there with me received the same great service, as did the vivacious size 28 African-American bride. They genuinely seem to care and want every bride who sets foot in their store to feel beautiful and happy about their choice. I’m so relieved that I (and my dress) will be in such capable hands!
