@Pinkmoon: OMG you look fabulous in all of those – especially the last one. πŸ™‚

I kept a folder of “eh, maybe these would work” dresses and brought them with me to my 1st appointment. Tried about 4 “meh” dresses then spotted my current dress jammed between a couple others. Loved it even in the packaging and after trying it on twice I bought it. πŸ™‚

Obligatory vanity shot/excuse to post my dress. πŸ˜‰

I loved 6 dresses before I found the one. The first dress I fell in love with was Pronovias Higuera, and at the same appointment, I fell in love with anotehr dress, but I don’t remember the designer or the style. I think it was a Watters dress. Then, I fell in love with 4 dresses; one was Watters Austin, and the other three were all Marisa dresses, so I can’t provide pictures since she doesn’t advertise her dresses. I don’t remember the style numbers or names or whatever. I then found my dress which had all the elements I loved in the other dresses togetehr in one, Priscilla of Boston Hampton.

and on me

I had 3.

The first, a San Patrick,  I never got try on. I called every single bridal shop from Maine to NY, and no one had it.  So I got over it.  πŸ˜›   However, my actual dress has a lot of similarities to it.

#2 was a Martina Liana.  I LOVED it.  But my mom wasn’t totally blown away, and I had plenty of time, so I decided to keep looking. (The top was stunning, but the skirt was quite plain and fell kind of flat on me).

Tried on another Martina Liana with a bit more “flair”  and loved it, but couldn’t commit because I worried about shaking my hips and sitting in it.

 

And then found “the one” (Marisa) – I’m adding a one-shoulder to it though.   It was a good combination of all the elements i was looking for, and it made my mom cry.

I’ll play!  I liked 4 before finally finding *the dress*.  You can tell from the pics that I prefer the fit and flare style.  I was open to satin/lace/organza etc.  Here we go … (sorry for pics being so big).  

1st was a Paloma Blanca dress:

2nd was a Mon Cheri dress:

3rd was a CB Couture dress:

4th was a Winnie Couture dress:

Finally *the dress* Allure 8815:

haha this thread is fun! I have been looking since I was a little girl. I found all of these dresses before I even got engaged. The first ones where when I was about 15 lol. So honestly I had my dream dress picked out before He even asked me to marry him. All the ones I acually tryed on when it was time to look I thought were pretty but never fell in love with. I never tryed any of these on. Except mine and I didnt even try that one on till I bought it and it came in. πŸ™‚

The first one I found at about 15 years old

THEN

  THEN

I found maggie sottero dresses and it was all over

And finally right before I got engaged I found this dress in a magazine and Fell compleatly in love with it! Its my dress πŸ™‚

@Pinkmoon:  Thanks. It was fun. We were in the median on A1A and cars were driving past honking and cheering for us. My photographer calls the shot “dangerously sexy.” We did a bunch with just us and then with the wedding party too.

Thread-jack over πŸ™‚
