- Wedding: March 2018
I found this a while ago, but i actually ordered it on Sat!!! I am so excited I just wanted to tell you all!
I just thought I’d share with you all the tale of my dress… I found it on a dress shopping hunt with momma vista and my Maid/Matron of Honor. It was the first store we went to and they were great. I am a plus sized bride and the last think I would do is stand in front of a mirror while some sales lady holds size two dresses up in front of me. Not a good feeling. So when we went to this store I was very happy that they had normal dresses in my size. Once I put it on I knew it was the one. “just in case” I went to other stores, and tried more on, but it seemed like every dress I tried on made me more confident that this was my dress.
Now on to the second dress. This is my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses as worn by my Maid/Matron of Honor. I met all the girls to have a big shop in San Fran to choose dresses. After deciding that bridal stores were too pricey and generic for us and really not able to accommodate the varying shapes of all my girls, we hit the department stores. I think they tried on every dress in Macy’s. I was planning to go for yellow, since that is my wedding color, but on our way out the door I spotted this dress all alone in the clearance section. When I went over to it, I saw that it was on mega clearance- 200 down to 85. But there was only one, so we began the hunt.
This part of this story is the part I refer to as “the miracle of the bridesmaid dresses” We had the 6 that I found. My cousin said I will need an 8- and from the other side of the clearance section a different Bridesmaid or Best Man said “I have an 8, I need a 10” and my cousin said “I found a 10!” Then my Maid/Matron of Honor said “I found a 4, that will fit your sister!” we had to go to one other macy’s (20 minutes away) and we had all of them. At 60% off. And they go perfectly with my dress. So now my BM’s will have to get yellow shoes and I’m having a friend make yellow satin boleros. (really pale butter yellow looks the best with the dresses)
So that is my story, I just am so excited I thought I’d share!!
