Hi ladies! I’ve never posted on here before (but I read!) – so it’s great to “meet” you!
I’ve been searching for dresses for my September wedding for 2 months, and I just never found “the one.” I tried on every style, I’m sure… and I liked MANY of them… but none of them really felt right.
So, I went to David’s Bridal today (sort of on a “whim” – I just went by myself), and I found the dress! I had been to two different David’s Bridals before, but I’m so happy I went again.
This dess was on the mannequin when I walked in, and I was in instantly in love! I can’t find it on their website, and the consultants told me that it was new. It’s a Galina dress.
I think I’m having the bow removed, and I’m going to “de-poof” the bottom a bit. I never imagined myself in a dress that isn’t more form-fitting… but I don’t care! I’m SO happy I finally found it!
P.S. – It has POCKETS!

Super fun! I understnad if the bow isn’t “you”, but I like a detail there. Will you replace it with a flower accent or anything?

@VirginiaMarie – I do agree with you, and I DO actually like it… I’m just not sure if I’ll always like it, haha. Meaning, will I look back on my wedding dress and think, “what was up with that bow?!” lol. I’m thinking about replacing it with a flower accent or something… or MAYBE even keeping the bow… not 100% sure. The accent there definitely helps.

It’s really pretty on you! I love the pockets, too.

Oh well, if it helps at all—I love the bow! But flower accent may be a bit more “sophistocated”. Hmmm…either way you can’t go wrong!

I love the bow too! Who knows what will be considered dated in 20 years – go with what you love now!

The bow makes the dress! And I hate to tell you, but no matter what dress you choose, 20 years from now you’re going to think it looks dated no matter what! I look at my dress which I absolutely loved back in 1976 and now see the beautiful dresses today and say “sheesh, what was I thinking!” LOL!
