- Wedding: May 2013
I thought I wanted this Adorae by Maggie Sottero, way out of my small budget though!
So I went to a consignment bridal shop to see what they had and this bigger than life dress was calling my name. I had imagined a sleek satin ruched sweetheart bodice, but I wanted to try this other dress on just for fun. (Ok and by big I mean TONS of tulle, so much that it broke the first hanger!!! lol) So I tried it on and I couldn’t stop smiling and I didn’t want to take it off. I wanted to wear it everywhere forever!! Also, it was my exact size so no alterations!!! She is making into a sweetheart neckline because I really wanted that for my dress. I think a lot of brides have a vision of what they want, but many times it ends up being something you never expected. I got my dress, veil, shoes, and garter all for $500. Way under budget and I had signed up for an interest free monthly payment plan! Woohoo!
Oh and sidebar, I told my sister in-law was being super nosy about where I got my dress. I was so excited I was just like oh this little place called ______ _______, but I told her I didn’t care where it was from I just loved it!!! So she sends me a text the next week that said “Go pick up your dress!!” I was confused at first then I relized what she meant and I started balling while I was at work!! She paid for my entire dress as my wedding gift and I go pick it up this Saturday!!
