- Wedding: June 2011
I am super excited so I have to write a post on here of course. So I went back home to Iowa this weekend to have a girls weekend. Normally J would come home with me but he was hanging with guy’s here at home, so I went home alone. I hung out with my mom, cousin, and 2 girlfriends that I have known since we were 5.
My wedding is 13 months away, but they convinced me to go to David’s Bridal and try on dresses so that I would at least know the style I may want when I go back later. I made my cousin try on dresses with me even though her wedding is a year after mine.
So we looked through dresses and I kept going back to this one dress about 10 times in different sizes while looking, saying I like this one. So someone came up to help us and we registered and then she even suggested this same dress. So I had to try it on of course. I put on the bustier, of course, and then she helped me into the dress. It zipped up like it was made for me. I felt so pretty!!!!! I am not a huge girl (12-14) but my chest is larger than it needs to be… so I thought wedding dress shopping would be a bust.
I loved the dress and I continued to try more on. Once you find the ONE, the rest don’t feel the same, and now I understand that feeling. I did try on about 8-10 more dresses, and I felt pretty in them, and I looked nice, but they didn’t bring the giddy girly this is my dress feeling to me. So I put the first one back on again, and finally after walking around decided, its marked down to $200 bucks I better get it or I will regret it. I don’t have a David’s Bridal where I live in IL, and I only go to Iowa once a month.
So, I didn’t really have the money, since we were just looking for something fun to do… but it rang up at $85. WAIT? WHAT?! Yeah… I got my dream dress for $85!!! And then we went shoe shopping and I got red shoes for $7…. and they are normally $99 shoes!!!!!! BUDGET BABY YES!!!!
My dress is Style 9E8252 in the Apple Red like shown in most pictures. I don’t want to put pictures on here just in case Mr. Simple gets on here and sees things. I am not looking into getting the veil but it was $189 lol seems kinda silly.
