Ive posted my original dress on here a few times. I fell in love with it b/c it was so different and modern, but I also fell in love with it b/c of the price. I got it BRAND new at a sample sale. Well… my wedding has turned more formal than I would have thought. I chose bridesmaids dresses and then realized that their dresses are almost just as formal as mine. So I have been trying REALLY hard to stay in love with my dress. I stopped looking at all other dresses the day I bought it but wouldnt you know it… a fellow Bee posted a photo of her in the Maggie Soterro Melanie. My heart skipped a beat when I saw that dress.
I called my local bridal salon and they had it! I went to try it on yesterday and cried. This was MY dress and I bought it today! And I have NO regrets!!! I love this dress and I could not sleep last night thinking about it after trying it on.
I already have my cathedral veil and I purchased a rhinestone applique to make a sash for my old dress, so I brought it to the salon today and the bridal consultant attached it so it flowed from under my breast to along the sheer part of the dress. It will stop at the buttons.<br /><br />I may not sleep tonight – HURRY UP MARCH 28!!!
Here is my original dress (Which I do still love but not as much as my new one) [content moderated per self promotion policy]
MY NEW DRESS!!!! It is too big on me, I had to order a size down but you get the idea!!!

The new dress is beautiful and makes a bigger statement than the first one. It’s also much more formal. That lace back is gorgeous!
