    My story is a little complicated, as I was living in the US, then moved to Holland, but am getting married in Portugal where my FH’s family lives. So, in the span of 3 months, I had visited 1 store in the US, 4 stores in Portugal, 6 in Holland, plus 3 in Italy where I happened to go on vacation. I would say that I am quite picky and I had an idea of what I wanted. Of course, I couldn’t seem to find anything anywhere. In the end, I finally found a dress I got excited about in a tiny town near where I live, and I just bought it immediately. I would say it was impulsive, and I’ve had plenty of doubts since I bought it, but I went for my first fitting 2 days ago, and it was wonderful and I’m happy.

    Your choices in designers sounds Amazing, so I can imagine your dilemma. Just go for the one you love best. I’m sure that you will look beautiful no matter what.

    you’ll definitely know when it’s the right one and i think it’s worth the wait and effort. i on the other hand saw a cymbeline gown that was really different and vintage looking but edgie and modern in a bridal mag and got on their website. i saw the bali gown and didn’t even have to try it on to know it was the one… 100%!

    it was so me.& i was right! if i designed a dress on my own, it would be this exact dress.

    try looking up cymbeline gowns, you might like them. you can find them for sale used too
