- Wedding: October 2010
I’m getting pretty tired of writing dress posts, comparing dresses, debating my budget (i.e. $2400 or $1100), thinking of what fits my ceremony, reception, me, my fiance, my parents wishes, etc, etc, etc…
Please oh please, I hope this is my last post! I’m so horrible at decisions though and this dress has elements I never usually like (french poofy bustle things), and is a bit crazier than I ever would usually go for (If i look back in 20 years will I think 80’s poof weird?). And then, considering I thought since it had the bit of something different, my mom would really like it (as she LOVED the craziest dress ever!) So, apparently not. But, even though it took me a good 5-10 minutes to warm up to it, I REALLY warmed up to it and never wanted to take it off. I wanted to skip around the store in it! And ya, after putting on the veil, I almost did well up with tears! I showed ALL the previous dresses to my local girls and FI’s sister and everyone was always like “uh huh” not exactly “gasp, wow!” I showed the dress today to FI’s mom and sister and his mom almost started crying and his sister actually finally showed interest in it 🙂
Basically, in my mind, I was frolicking through an imaginary field in one of the Estee Lauder “Beautiful” commercials .
It’s the Pronovias Megan and coming in at $1700, no custom hollow to hem and only minor alterations, and a cheaper veil I found, I still come in at close to my original $2000 “look” budget.
This is the back, we were trying to work a bustle, lol. It looks like it’s going to be complicated, haha.
So, I feel better in this dress than I have in any other. It’s completely different, not just from a classic timeless style, but, I mean, the dress is actually different than a normal one, lol. So…. Thoughts?
Here’s a link where you can better see the back. The tulle comes out at the bottom in the back…
