- Wedding: May 2013
This is pretty funny.. SO I’ve been trying on dresses for months ALL by myself. I didn’t want anyones opinion to change mine. Especially since my Mother is very conservative!
So I go to the bridal shop…with all of my close family to preview the “IT” dress. So as I’m waiting for them to arrive I told my bridal consultant that I wanted them to see a few “NO dresses”.
Here’s how it goes..
1st dress: Its pretty but its got too much roushing and its so not me! Mermaid with metallic bling with rouching.
2nd dress: I instantly felt like royalty. And got the HUGEST WOW!!!!!! I was walking around. My 1st Ballgown. EVER!
3rd dress: Supposed to be my grand finale..but instead… I felt like it wasn’t that WOW anymore lol Everyone’s says put #2 on!
I put #2 on and kept telling them.. “I’m so confused” for a few hours. Then, after I sat, walked around the bridal store, had some fun dancing in it … I made my chocie!!! YES TO THE DRESS!*** My MIL bought it.. in their family…the male’s side pays for the dress. I feel so blessed!! It’s all coming together!! WOO!
Here’s the dress… I’ve never seen anything like it. I haven’t ever worn an A-line or ballgown in my life.. and this is coming from a Prom queen, pageant girl, homecoming court, sorority formals… its all been mermaid style. (I’m very petite so that was my other issue.. I always looked swallowed). So it’s my 1st time to be a real Princess.. I am so excited
Here it is ON ME
Online picture: LOVE it =)
Has anyone picked a dress they thought they wouldn’t even like?
P.S. What hairstyles do you think I should do?
My Grandma bought me a cathedral veil, (getting married in a church that looks like a cathedral), and a Tiara lol. I never thought I’d wear a Tiara! Especially after so many years of pageants but It seems fitting considering my Fiance always calls me his QUEEN <3
SHOW ME YOUR DRESSES 😉 VERY excited to see what you all think and love!
Also, any advice now that the dress is ordered? I’m staying away from looking at other dresses.. lol
