- Wedding: November 2014
This is my first post! Sorry its so LONG!
I had been stalking the Mori Lee 5108 dress boards since I got engaged Sept 2012. I even secretly went by myself and tried on the dress at two different bridal salons. I was CONVINCED it was the ONLY dress for me. I had not tried on anything else. I was constantly CREEPING on boards to see if there was a new pic of the 5108 somewhere! It looked so amazing on all different body types.
I went to my “first official” dress consultation with my family last week. My family hated it. ***In the pictures the girl next to me had it on and they commented under their breath how ugly it was, they did not want me to even try it on for them because they had seen enough. I thought the other bride looked beautiful! 🙁 They said it looked cheap and was nothing special.(they also do not like the mermaid/trumpet/fit and flare look) I wanted them to like my dress but it was also not going to be the deciding factor on my dress choice! I do not think they were intentionally trying to be mean, they just wanted me to wow my fiance. I kept trying on more dresses and I came across Maggie Sottero CHEYENNE! The moment I saw myself in that dress, it was over. Love at first sight!! It is so much more beautifu in person. Surprisingly, it was a hit with my family. Also, a few of the other brides and their families commented on how awesome it was on me compared to the others I had tried on. I gained about 40 pounds in the last three years(happy weight, my fiance also gained with me lol) I know I have to lose weight, not just for my wedding but for my health. I know it will look even that much better once I drop some weight. I have 8 months and I know i can do it, I just have to stop being so lazy!
Unfortunately, the MS cheyenne dress was the only picture my cousin took a picture of, so I cannot even refference back to see what I looked like in the other dresses. I hope I picked the right dress for me. It felt right at the time, but I would like some honest feed back PLEASE! My wedding will be at Rancho Guajome Adobe in Vista Ca. It has a spanish/mexican fiesta feel to it and I think the Cheyenne dress will fit right in. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
