Ladies, I am SO EXCITED to announce that after looking online for a year and a half and physically shopping since July, I have finally ordered my dress!
I am SO excited to have found the one after waffling back and forth! I had thought that I was for sure going to buy the Mikaella 1511, but then I opened up an older folder of dresses I had saved last year and found the Laurel. I had totally forgotten about it and never tried it on. I couldn’t stop thinking about it after that and called around my city—I even contacted a store I had been to in Toronto—and no one had the sample.
I managed to track down a dress by the sister designer with a similar bodice and shape and I tried that on to see how I’d like myself in the dress. Well ladies, I LOVED THE BODICE and so I took a leap of faith and I ordered my dress without trying it on!
The best thing is that it’s less expensive than the other two dresses I fell in love with before AND the shop owner is ordering the dress for me even though she doesn’t carry that designer (she carries the sister designers). Talk about great service!
Without further ado, here is the dress I’ve ordered and a pic of myself in a similar style which I based my decision on.
I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL 4-6 MONTHS WHEN IT COMES IN! Fingers crossed that it looks great on me when I finally see it in person!!

Thanks ladies! I actually really like the placeholder dress too, haha! Obviously the skirt is very different than my dress, but I am positive I will love it! Fingers crossed that the Laurel will look as nice on me as the Edimburgo…

What designer for the dress you are actually wearing in the photos? I love it! I am actually thinking of going with Mikaella 1511, and that is strikingly similar. Thanks!

Sorry for the late reply ladies. I am not on Weddingbee often. The dress that I am actually wearing in the photo is called Edimburgo and it’s by San Patrick (Pronovias). It actually has a single strap on one shoulder but I tucked it into the dress. I think I actually liked the fullness of the Edimburgo more than the Mikaella 1511, but the Laurel is still my favourite!
I also got the call and my dress is in now!! YAY! I FINALLY get to try it on for the first time ever and see what it looks like! <3
