A little about me, street size 20-22, planning a wedding in 3.5 months. Fiance got seriously ill and it put everything in perspective, and we decided to get married before the end of the year.
With 3 months to go I decided I better bite the bullet and go dress shopping. I was planning to try on styles and then order a dress from China due to time/budget. Went shopping with my mum and Maid/Matron of Honor.
The first 3 dresses were no good. My mum found the 4th, I tried it on and we all fell in love with it. Best part was, the sample was available to take straightaway. I went to another store, tried on another 3 dresses, and couldn’t get this one out of my head, so I went back and got it!
Not sure on the designer as I didn’t take note of the tag and it’s at my parents’ place, but I do know it’s a size 22 and doesn’t need any alterations. It has vertical pleating on the bust, horizontal beading on the waist and a gorgeous brooch. The skirt is all tulle, baby! I bought the fascinator with the little birdcage veil too 🙂

@allyfally: I know! And it’s juuuuust ivory enough not to wash me out. My mum has bragging rights, she found it while I was trying on something else. This is a direct quote from her: “My say yes to the dress obsession paid off! You were glowing and smiling like they all do when they find the one!”

@Mrs_PinkHerman: Aw, shucks! Thanks! Three weeks to go, not long now.
@inlovebee: I’ll be wearing that veil, yes. I always pictured myself with one and it really set off the dress. I tried on a regular veil and I just wasn’t loving it. The salon made me wear the gloves while trying on dresses, I won’t be wearing on the day.
This is how my hair will be done:
