Ooooh, gorgeous! I had a friend get a custom-cut dress from Casablanca because she’s short, and it came out really well! Congratulations on finding such a beautiful dress!

First of all … HUGS!!!!!  I, too, was a 40-something, plus-sized bride who could not go gown shopping with her mom (she lived five hours away was recovering from a fall and a broken bone and could not travel), and who also was alone when she had her “this is the dress” moment.  Thankfully, I did not face any cold, rude sales associates when I was searching.

All but two of my bridesmaids were from out-of-town, and my one Maid/Matron of Honor and in-town bridesmaid did go with me on two dress-hunting occasions, the first of which did not turn out well, as the salon kept putting me in basically the same dress with variations, and I didn’t like any of them.  I did not have success on the second visit at a different salon, either.

Ultimately, I went back to the second salon alone (I loved the reputation at the salon as well as the very sweet bridal consultant who was helping me.)  After trying on a number of silk ball gowns (and realizing that the very last thing I needed was a ton of extra, gathered fabric at my waist), I finally fell in love with a beautiful, silk, A-line dress with Swarovski crystals on it.  I had my moment of relief, and my experience of finally feeling like a bride, with just the consultant and me. Thankfully, I was able to reach the in-town bridesmaid and asked her to stop by the salon on her way home from work. She did, and she liked the gown, so I bought it.  I still wish I had had my mom with me, and, in hindsight, I wish I had been able to go to Kleinfeld’s (since I had never even seen SYTTD until after my wedding. There are so many gowns that I now love that I never even knew existed, but, I probably would have fallen in love with something that was out of range for my budget, lol.)

Your gown is beautiful! I love the neckline and the texture! You are going to look amazing!

I can kind of relate.  I ordered mine online.  I tried it on and realized I had no one to show. It really upset because I couldn’t share my excitement with anyone.

ETA: Where in Jersey are you from?!
