- Wedding: October 2013
So I bought a dress in January. My DB experience was so so. The consultant was ok. I was struggling with it so much. what bolero to pair with it, what sash (beaded or plain), what jewelry. I just felt like I was “borrowing” this dress from soneone – it didn’t feel like my dress. Perhaps if I was getting married on a beach or eloping the dress would have been great. But just felt like “something” was missing. Plus strapless is NOT ME AT ALL.
I made an appt and went to ANOTHER DB (by my job). The consultant was FABULOUS. Now I don’t like fawning and all eyes on me at once so DB is not for everyone. This particular DB was perfect for me – just the right amount of attentiveness. I was able to exchange my dress, slip, and bra there and purchase this dress. The pics are not that great. In person it is fabulous for my subtle art deco themed wedding. I love it so much. I got to ring the bell this time (first time I did not). I thought I was going to cry which I am not that type of person. Now I feel like a bride-to-be!
I can’t wait until my dress comes in, in May so I can pick it up 🙂 I am going to get the sleeves a little closer of a fit to my arms. Not tight but a bit more snug. Now I need to find a lower back bra. Last pic is on a model wearing it in white. I bought it in Ivory.
