First of all OP the dress you chose is beautiful!

I tried on a lot of dresses but only one was the fit I wanted (natural waist) I ended up getting a A line that I really liked but did not love. (would have loved it if it was a natural waist and had lace on the bodice.)

I do not have pics of all the dresses I tried on but here are some.

This is the only natural waist dress I got to try on and It was a contender but I wanted more on the bottom. (not me in the pic)

There were a lot of dresses that I wanted to try on but the stores in my area didn’t have them.

I really liked three gowns before I fell in love with my gown.  

The first one that I tried that I thought may be the one was Maggie Sottero’s Victoriana.  I loved the pink color it came in and the beading on the bodice is phenomenal.  However, I could never quite get past the fact that it is a ballgown and I always envisioned myself in a more fitted gown.  Plus, we’re getting married at a ranch, so this one ended up out of contention.

Then it was pretty much between two for a while.  The next one that I had a thing for was the Alfred Angelo Sleeping Beauty gown.  Loved the color of it, the sweetheart neck, and the bit of bling.  However, I absolutely did not like the bottom of the gown whatsoever.  It was assymetrical (sp?) and I didn’t like how it bunched at the bottom.  I would’ve wanted to alter it to fix it.

And the other of the two I was torn on was Mori Lee Blu 4902.  I loved the beading on this one and the fit, but I was worried about the shade of pink that it would come in.  When I showed pictures to friends of it online, they thought it was off white and couldn’t tell it was pink.  I still thought this would probably be it for me, but luckily I hesitated a week before going to purchase…

And then I finally found the one!  A fellow bee posted a picture of it on here from the Chicago Bridal Market in March and I absolutely fell in love.  I kind of knew it would be the one then, but I had to wait four months before I could even try her on.  When I did, it just confirmed that it is my dress!
