…when my mom, sister and cousin oohed and ahed over it, and then I couldn’t stop thinking about it after.  At my second gown appointment I kept comparing every dress I tried to MY dress, and that’s how I knew she was really the one.

My story is a bit longer, than finishing the sentence:

When I found out, the first dress I bought did never really fit me, I decided to get a new dress (4 weeks before my wedding).

So I went to the finest bridal shop in the City Centre of Vienna to borrow a dress there.
But all the “borrow”-dresses where made from taffeta or satin. And I do love tulle dresses. So I said that I put up my budget to buy a tulle gown and she brought me one tulle-mairmaid-gown from Ellis Bridal and on tulle-princess-gown from San Patrick (style Argel).


And when I put on the San Patrick Argel, I knew that I loved it. But I did not have enought money with me, so I told them to come the next day to pick it up.

And when I came the next day, the dress was sold. I was so worried about that, because at that moment I knew I only wanted this one gown.


So I drove to another wedding boutique, from which I knew, they also had San Patrick dresses. Maybe I could get a very similar one. I told the lady in the shop, what I looked for and the first dress she brought me, was San Patrick Argel.

I knew, that this was my dress…..and it was 20% off. What a lucky day for me.


I will get my dream dress next week and I know, that it ist MY DRESS because…..

The day I walked down the aisle and my husband-to-be cried (and he never cries!)

When it was the only dress I didn’t want to take off to try on more.

When I put a veil on with it and gasped at how “me” it looked and how good I looked in it and I didn’t want to take it off Laughing
