I said Yes to this Dress!!!
Symphony Dress Style#S3111
It is true that when you find the right one you just know. I never thought I would get that feeling about a dress, like the moments you see on TV shows like “Say Yes To the Dress” where the bride to be gets all emotional about the dress.
When I walked out in this gown, It was the first time that I had seen my mom react to any dress I had tried so far… this was dress #15 or so. I also looked in the mirror and was speechless for just a moment and I could feel my eyes watering up. I quickly stopped that because I did not want to start crying, in a good way of course. I knew right away that this was my dress.. but I still tried on the other dresses I had pulled. When I went back in this dress for the second time, I just said that this is it and I don’t want to look anymore.
I am a bride on a very tight and small budget. That limited me to dresses under $800. I was ok with the fact that I might not find a gown that was like some of the more expensive ones from pictures that I pulled from wedding magazines. This dress was $772 total. The dress retails for $898 but since I was buying it off the rack there was a discount. I am lucky to have found a dress I could buy off the rack that fit because I am a plus size. This dress felt great on and it made me feel beautiful. I will only have to have minor alterations.
For brides with a small dress budget, Symphony Bridal dresses are a great option. They are not too expensive and are gorgeous. All of them look like much more expensive dresses. If you can find a Bridal Store that will sell it off the rack that is also another way to save. I got mine at Minnie’s Bridal & Prom Outlet in Orlando, FL.
