- Wedding: June 2011
I had my 1st Dress shopping experience over the weekend, and let me tell you…. ‘Tis mucho fun. 🙂 I had no idea what to expect even after reading countless blogs and researching this subject endlessly.
I had my Mum, sister and Maid/Matron of Honor join me for moral support and general opinions. Needless to say, they know me better than anyone in this world, so it only made sense that i invite them along. I am so glad i did. They were so damn helpful! 😉 Thank you so much my loverlies! Thanks to the Maid/Matron of Honor for hookin up the champagne! So thoughtful <3! Loveth youze!
I also heeded the advice of many and decided to go in Spanx.. (haha my 1st pair!) Really good idea for the brides that feel a lil awkward changing in front of absolute strangers. It made the process so much more comfortable for me.
So, i went into my first dress shop a bit nervous but open minded as i could be. I had in mind a few dresses i wanted to try but as soon as i got through the shop doors, i seemed to forget everything i had researched. (Ha! Typical.) Luckily, MaryAnn (The woman helping me) seemed to have a better idea than i did. She pulled the dresses i requested (Mostly Maggie Sottero dresses) but also pulled out a few she thought i should try. I am so glad she was there to help.
I went in hoping/determined to buy the Maggie Sottero Destination wedding gown (Style Rehearsal Dinner1044)
Unfortunately, after trying this on, i didnt feel the ‘wow’ factor. It was a really pretty dress, but just not enough of the stunna i wanted it to be. So after a few more dresses in this style, i began to feel i wouldn’t find any that i would love but wasn’t too bummed about it since it was my first attempt. However, MaryAnn decided to let me try on a brand new Casa Blanca gown that had come in the day before. No one had tried it on so it was in perfect condition, it was just a little too big but i got the general idea of how it would look. So here is the dress that is now in 1st place:
What a drastic change from the former, right?! This dress is so ,mega-awesome when tried on! This photo does it no justice, the dress has so much beautiful detailing its a pity the photos don’t depict that. But i think you get the idea… So if i don’t find another dress that trumps this one… This might possibly be the win.
What do you think? Is this a win?
