I tried on quite a few dresses before finding one that felt just right and thought I’d post some photos from my try on sessions as it really helped me to see “real brides”!
Watters – Stassia
Theia – Lilia
Rue de Siene – Fox (first dress I tried on and almost purchased but price was way above my budget. Still love it!)
Watters – Femi
Maggie Sottero – Kirstie (with detachable Mirelle tulle overskirt)
Maggie Sottero – Kirstie
Sottero & Midgley – Alexandra
My Final 3 before choosing one
Pronovias – Princia, Oringo, Orinoco

You are all so sweet! The Maggie was beautiful and super comfortable but I was looking for something with more dimension and texture.
I kept going back to Princia, trying it on at a few different appointments but felt like it was missing something. At my last appointment, I told the salon owner I needed something more and she pulled Princia, Oringo and Orinoco for me. Tried on all 3 (and only these 3), slept on it for a month, went back, put it on and it was just what I needed! When next to each other, as seen on hangers they are basically the same but the gores and lightness of the last one sold me.
I’m now struggling with a bustle. I hate them so much…like, so much. thankfully I have 5 months to figure out a plan of attack before my first fitting!
I was dreading it at first but I ended up having so much fun dress shopping. I loved seeing the dresses that other girls were trying on too (super nosey!). I tried on about 50 dresses (over the span of 4 months though!) not because I was indecisive but I just wanted to try everything on before I made a choice. I also wasn’t going to allow myself to get too stressed about this process (even though I totally did at times) as I do not believe there is ONE dress out there. I didn’t cry when I put it on but I found one that is really pretty and something that no one is going to expect me to wear. Most of all, I surprised myself when I looked in the mirror.
As my fiancé said, “whatever dress you pick is going to be the perfect one for our wedding day” (so sweet but said by a person who isn’t squeezing into a wedding dress!)😉
Went in not wanting sweetheart, strapless or mermaid and well, that’s how it goes, right?!

You were right to get sweetheart/strapless. You have beautiful shoulders and torso. Those first two dresses made you look frumpy. When the skin came out in subsequent photos, wow!
I understand maybe wanting aomething a little different from the norm of sweetheart/strapless, but you are the person who should wear those dresses!

besteveralways : Yay!! I’m glad you decided on that one, the shape of it and the lace look amazing on you! The lace is stunning! The dress really shows off your figure, more so than the others. Congratulations!

Wow I love the one you picked! Looks so great on you! I also hated my bustle and ended up cutting off the train since it was just tulle, so normally I would recommend that. However, yours is much more detailed and an important part of the dress, so I guess that isn’t really an option but I’m sure they can work something out. Good luck!
