I tried on my dress for the first time today after waiting nearly 6 months for it to arrive! I had anxiety going in to the appointment because of the circumstances under which I purchased it. My mom, sister, and future mother-in-law all flew a considerable distance to dress shop with me one weekend this past September. We hit 4 bridal salons over a 2 day period in Richmond, Alexandria, and Severna Park, MD. Needless to say, I really wanted to purchase a dress with them present. My dress ended up being the very last dress I tried on at the last store–and it was one the consultant picked for me! After I bought it, I was concerned that I only purchased it because I wanted that moment with my family plus I was just tired of looking. Well, after trying it on today in my size with the modifications I had done, I can say without a doubt that I love it!
What do you think?
Sample: I think the bottom of the dress lays better when I’m not on a podium, so here’s a pic of the sample, plus you can see the top of the bodice better without the cell phone in the way.
