- Wedding: June 2012
I bought my wedding dress!! It’s an Allue Bridal gown, from the Spring 2012 collection. I got extremely lucky, and it just so happened that there was an Allure Bridal Spring 2012 Collection Trunk Show at the bridal salon for that week only! I don’t know the style #, and it will not be on display to the public until early 2012. I love knowing that I am one of very few to actually HAVE this dress.
The top is ruched satin, with a flat beaded/jeweled flower belt, and the skirt is tulle over taffeta. The back has buttons to the floor, and every third or fourth button is a jewel. I love it. I love it I love it I love it! 🙂
I found it at my third appointment.. it’s very similar to what I had in mind all along. I tried on about 12 or so dresses before this one. As soon as I put it on.. I think I knew. Everyone told me that as soon as I put on “my” dress I would burst into tears, but that just isn’t me. But it felt right, and it was the moment when I looked back into the mirror and saw myself, that I could see myself getting married in it. Though I was so excited after we bought it my eyes did well up leaving the store!
My maid of honor, and another bridesmaid were there with me. I had another appointment at a salon next door right after, and I was THISCLOSE to cancelling it, but I was afraid I would regret not going. So, we went to the next appointment.. found ourselves comparing every gown to the previous one, so after deliberation over coffee we marched back and bought “the” one!!
(Now I have to go make VERY sure that I fully delete these pictures off of the computer, and purge the “deleted items” so that there is no chance my finace will see these!!)
