first of all, CONGRATULATIONS!!  puchasing a dress can be overwhelming especially when it’s over budget! (I did the same thing)   I felt regret for a couple of months, until I went in for my first fitting and it was so beautiful.  Mine might be a different story though because I had them take the bodice of own dress and combine it with the skirt of another, so I really had no idea what to expect. 

 

Are you pairing a sash with your dress? The lace is so pretty and I love the shape.

Mine choice was also the ending of an era. I was ready to not try on more dresses (even though it sounds like you tried on more than me). Once I tried on Romona’s dresses I knew there would be no turning back on quality or price since I knew I wanted lace.  It was out of my original price range as well :/ But I know I will feel like a million bucks on my wedding day! I love the fact that it is classic because of the lace, but a little modern with the bottom.  And the neckline on this dress was sexy without beeing too revealing.  I am alsolutely obsessed with our choice!!

@NDfan2009:  I don’t mind at all! That is too funny though.  I almost didn’t get pictures because I decided to go home and think about it (after I had tried on this dress 3 different times) but I had to decide quick because it was a trunk show.  So I made my decision in the morning over the phone, and then went in during my lunch to sign the paperwork.  We decided to try the dress on to double check sizing and the consultant was nice enough to take pics for me and email them because I had left my phone at work. I wish I would have gotten pics when I had heels on or my necklace but I am super happy I did get pics!

 

I am excited to see you in the dress too! I think this dress was totally underdone by the promo model pics! They need models that look like they eat more than lettuce all day haha

 

When is your wedding?  Mine isn’t until 7-6-13 so I probably won’t start alterations until May or June.  I am a little worried since i ordered a size 10 because of the bust area and wanting to make sure I didn’t have to let out the cups, but I am sure it will all work out.

@NDfan2009:  I doubt your fiance will even be able to comprehend what fit this dress is when he sees you in it.  Wearing your hair down will definitely make him happy for some reason I think all guys like hair down.  And yes it is always good to downsize.  I am thinking I will maybe tell them I want all the extra lace they are cutting off the dress and use it for something? Maybe wrapping my boquet or making clutches for my bridemaids, we will see! 

 

Also, that is awesome you are getting married in Sonoma, I got engaged in Napa.  We are tying in a wine theme to our wedding using a lot of corks.  I think we may go back to Napa for a minihoneymoon since we are going to wait until winter to take our honeymoon.  If you are having your wedding on a vineyard this dress is just going to be amazing for the venue!

Very pretty 🙂

 

I went over budget on my dress too (by about $500 even), and I don’t regret it.
