My dress came in about two weeks ago, and I’ve been dying to post the pictures! I’ve shared them with my Maid/Matron of Honor, the mother of the groom and a couple other people. Obviously, my mom was there with me when I put on my ACTUAL dress for the first time. I must say that the day after I bought my dress, I had major dress regret. I bought a Marisa dress, and for those not familiar, she does NO advertising, so there are no model pictures of her dresses online. In fact, it’s very difficult to even know the design number/name of your dress and any pictures you find are other brides in the dress.
Funny thing is that I kind of stumbled upon this dress. I thought I found THE dress the day prior. It was a Martina Liana, and it was a trunk show dress (although not told to me until the end of the appointment). I had another appointment the next day, and it was the ONLY appointment my Maid/Matron of Honor could come to, as she lives out of state. I did not want to cancel this appointment for that reason and chose to honor it. The other bridal salon was so rude and mean to me about that (to the point that one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man said something), so I didn’t want to buy from them, even if that seems silly. The next day, I tried on a ton of dresses and LOVED the salon, but couldn’t get the dress from the day before out of my mind. The VERY LAST dress I tried on was the Marisa dress, and I went with it!!!It brought tears to my Maid/Matron of Honor eyes. However, I freaked out the next day because I had no pictures of me in it, and I felt the pictures of other brides I found online weren’t what I remembered. I went back and tried on like 10 more dresses and my dress again at the very end. Needless to say, I stayed with my dress. I was THIS close to canceling my paid in full order, and I am so glad I did not (the fabulous support of my bridal salon helped as well – they were absolutely NO pressure, which was refreshing). When my dress came in, I was so happy!!! I am obsessed with it, it is THE dress, and I cannot wait until my first fitting soon! I am adding a belt with crystal details, but it has not arrived yet. I just wanted to share with more people, because I’m so excited!!
