- Wedding: September 2016
So I was very nervous about going wedding dress shopping because I am a bigger girl. But I did my researh and decided on going to a place that had some really good reviews. They also claimed to fit any budget which is pretty strapped at the time because my mom got laid off from her just and just started a new one like this monday and she and my dad were paying for the dress so that limited my budget. But I am about 13 months off and I didn’t know how long or how many trips it would take to find the perfect dress. So turns out just one and done lol! I knew I wanted some elegant and “princess” we are having a Disney themed wedding and a Disney Honeymoon. So I definately want to be a princess. But I was drawing a little more real princess apposed to fairytale princess. I love dresses like Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton’s but didn’t want the longs sleeves because it is still hot the begining of September. So knew I wanted that full lace back and lace on the shoulders. So she started pulling dressses like that. And I had one that I really wanted to try that was Allure 9162. I did try it on but I am so short that I felt like I was drowing in the tulle and it didn’t really do anything for my shape. The dress as just simply stunning though just gorgeous. That was actually the third dress I tried on. The first one was the same style and I totally hated it which made me freak out a little that I wasn’t going to like that style and we were going to have to figure out what in the world was going to look good!
But alas I tried the second dress on. Everything on it fit like a glove! And it was a sales rack only dress so that was good because I couldn’t order another one. It made my boobs look amazing and I was super surprised because it had a keyhole in the back and I loved it. It also really sucked me in and gave me a really nice shape! It instantly put and great smile on my face! Everyone really loved it and even the family of the other girl was like that looks awesome one you! Even though deep down I felt like this was the one I wanted to try on others especially the 9162. So I tried that one and another one. And I still had one more to try on in the dressing room and I was like I need to try that one on again! So we got back into that one. And I just had that feeling everything was perfect on it. And I really felt like my baby was there today. My horse Gizmo passed in 2014 and I have a tattoo of him on my back and the keyhole perfectly frames that tattoo.
So here it is. 🙂 Allure style W324
The first are the model photo and the others are me. I also bought the veil as well.
