- Wedding: April 2011
So I am decidedly the most undecided person when it comes to wedding dresses. I think I bought my first one out of excitement before realizing I had time to actually look around. Then I had a rescheduled wedding date which ousted the next one….but finally I am so happy to announce I found my dream dress and I couldn’t be happier. I went to several bridal stores and like many of us girls above a size 6 I did get the opportunity to try on a few dresses, but not many. I did get lucky and a few of the dresses I liked had corset backs so the consultant did a pretty good job of squeezing me in to dresses that I couldn’t even have pretended to wear otherwise. In the end though I ended up only figuring out the shape of what I wanted and got a good direction on what designers would be the best for me. These days I am usually between a street size 16-18 so I had to use my imagination a good deal, but in the end I found her Dominique by Maggie Sottero in silver mist. I went with a size 20 and too my surprise I think I actually will have to have it taken in a bit. Whoo Hoo! Thank You Maggie! Though I have had it for about a month I hadn’t gotten a chance to pull it out and take a few pictures until now because yeah you just can’t put on a corseted dress by yourself or take pictures. Without much ado….here is Dominique. Forgive my appearance I probably should have primped a little. That and my friend who took the pictures was supposed to just take pictures of the dress. LOL.
