Hi Bees! I am so excited I had to post. I am a larger size (16), so I thought shopping for a dress was going to be a nightmare. My mom & I made an appointment to dress shop for the first time yesterday – and we thought we were just going to be browsing, trying on shapes, etc. – but I found the dress!! It was the 3rd dress I tried on and I absolutely loved it. tried on another 15 dresses after that one, and nothing even came close.
It feels a little weird having had such an easy time finding it…but i am sooo happy! It’s a Paloma Blanca – and in the pictures we were messing around with accessories so ignore the belt 🙂 SO EXCITEDDDDD

@Laur12: Wow that’s absolutely gorgeous! You look so good! I bought my dress at my first appointment too! It was probably dress 13 out of 15 and after the last few I went back to it 🙂 Yeah, no shame in happening to find the dress! My friend who recently got married told me if you find the one, just get it. She said she wasted a lot of time at other bridal shops and ended up coming back to the first place she tried on dresses at. Congratulations!!!!

@Laur12: Looks great on you! It really gives you a fabulous shape.
Your soo lucky. I went to 5 bridal shops and honesty after the fourth i though I would just never find a dress because I was too picky. Lucky for me a trunk show came to town and I found a dress that I wouldn’t have ever found if they hadn’t rolled into town.

That’s a great dress!
I, on a whim, went to a sample sale at a bridal show with my mom and sister. I found my dress there! $300! It had a little bit of a “stain” on it (which I got out with resolve since it’s a polyester blend)….I think people find their dresses on the first try more than people think…

Thank you everyone!! I’m psyched it’s one less thing I have to stress about! Also, it’s funny – we actually went because the shop was having a huge sale on all in-stock gowns…figures this wasn’t one of them lol

@darkflame: That is awesome!! They actually had the sample of my dress (in a diff color) on sale for half off…but it was a size 6. There’s no way. Lol. Jealous of your luck! 🙂

It seemed like when I was shopping that lots of people were getting it right within a couple dresses. Great shopping, lady!
