- Wedding: September 2012
I am happy to say that I found my dream dress! I am not a designer girl, by any means, but when I saw the Vera Wang collection at David’s Bridal, I just went nuts!
I kept coming back to her VW351029, mostly because of the skirt and the fact that it had straps. Not that I really have an issue with strapless (I am not super conservative by any means) But I am about 20 lbs over where I want to be and there is always the issue of that ever elusive arm and back fat that is hard to get rid of!
David’s was having a sale in which the Vera Wangs were all discounted, so I rushed in there to get mine right away! (mine ended up going from 1400, to 1098!)
I wasn’t sure how much time I would have to try on dresses, so I tried it on first. And I knew as soon as i walked out that it was the dress for me! I tried pretty much any and all the dresses in the collection (that they had available) but they just did not compare! My family liked the dress in the collection that is somewhat similar to this one but strapless. But, it just didnt have the same pizazz in my opinion!
Here are a few pics my mother took of me trying it on. The first pic is more fitted since he is pulling on the extra fabric, while the other is not. I did end up getting that sash with it as well!
First they told me it would take almost 6months to get my dress, then 6 weeks (April 16th) when I checked out. BUT I got the dress back in 6 DAYS. hahahaha. So now this lovely is sitting in my guest room closet until I get it altered in July after I lose a few pounds! (since I am not getting married until September 16th).
Hope you ladies love it as much as i do! (I keep sneaking peeks at it almost every day while my fiance is at work! lol!)
