This is my update to this thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/well-finally-found-my-dream-dresstoo-bad-my-weddings-in-2-months-long
So I finally have my third and final dress! As you can see from my other post, I stupidly bought 2 other dresses that just were not what I envisioned myself in. I recently saw Watters Devenport and fell completely in love with the dress, but there was no way I could get it in in time for my wedding on Sept. 3rd.
So I searched preownedweddingdresses.com high and low, and found a different Watters dress that was incredibly similar to Devenport and in a size only 1 bigger than mine! New with tags and everything! The dress really is quite close to the Devenport dress–looks to be the same alencon lace over the same silk organza. Both have sweetheart necklines. They are slightly different silhouettes, but I actually think the dress I got is a better silhouette for me. And I got the dress for $500 🙂 Much less than Devenports over $2000 price tag.
Anyway, it arrived on Friday…and here are a bunch of pictures (sorry they’re all me taking them in the mirror):

Thanks everyone! I’m so much more excited now. I was seriously so upset when I thought I would have to look back on my dress and hate it. Everyone of course now thinks I’m crazy for getting 3 dresses, but oh well.

“Squeals” Love it. You totally made the right decision. Can’t wait to see it fitted and accessorized!
ETA: Quote from my Mother-In-Law on my wedding day “I thought you were crazy with the 3 dress thing, but it’s good you held out. This dress is WAYYY better than the other ones”
