this weekend was my first weekend dress shopping, and i bought a dress at the third shop i went to. i thought i was going to buy one at david’s, but went to my third appointment anyway, where i found The Dress.
i wanted something different, a bit vintagey, timeless, with either cap sleeves or thick strap sleeves. we paid more than i’d planned, but it requires very little by way of alterations or fancy undergarments (the david’s dress would have required lots of both). i found it all in this maggie sottero dress:
i still can’t believe it, and occassionally have moments of "oh my god was it the right decision? should i have looked at more?", but really i know that this is the one. anyone else make big wedding decisions this weekend?

Nikkinicole ~ I didn’t buy my dress today but I just had to reply . . . Oh.My.Gosh.Stunning! I totally heart your dress! It is very similar to mine in regards to the bodice / shoulder staps / sleeves . . . I bought mine on my very first dress shopping adventure, and first store! Absolutely no regrets. As much as you love you dress now, just wait until you start the fittings and you will fall in love with your dress all over again; at least I did.
