My wedding is not until Aug 2013 but I made the mistake to start looking now since I will be going to veterinary school and too busy to plan next year. There were a few dresses that I really liked from Maggie Sottero but none of the stores by me had the ones I liked to try. The following are some of the ones that I liked…
(Decadence, Merielle, Perla, Topaz)
The only dress I was able to try on that was similar to the decadence was the Sabelle which was pretty nice but I think I would like the Decadence better.
Now comes the dilemma. I heard about Church Street Bridal (amazing!) and saw a gorgeous Pnina Tornai floor model dress for $700. I wasn’t quite ready to purchase a dress but didn’t want to miss out on the chance and regret it later so I bought it. I love the dress but am really nervous because I didn’t get to try it on yet. I LOVE the bottom of the dress but hope a mermaid looks good on me. I am 5’3 and 125 pounds but I am not really comfortable with my weight right now so not sure if mermaid is the best for that… Also, I feel bad because now I don’t get to have that bridal experience with my mom… Should I feel guilty about this? Here is this beautiful dress. I’ll send pics of me in it when it comes! http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3116059788316&set=a.3115800461833.2157974.1469106553&type=3&theater

@kill1nmesmalls: wow that Pnina is gorgeous!!!! I also missed the shopping experience with my mother, but once my dress came in and she saw me in it, everything was ok.
If you don’t love the Pnina once you try it on and you do decide to sell it, I don’t think you’ll have any problems finding a buyer.

@khf777: Thats what I thought too, I think I just am doubting my decision because I dunno if it will be MY dress until I try it on… That is a good point too, thanks!

How are you feeling now that the dress has arrvied? I also bought a dress online and feel similarly but my mom seems to be okay about it. I plan to try to go shoe/jewerly shopping with her too, maybe to make up for a little of the “missed experience”.
Are you going to have it cleaned? I bought a similiar style dress and need to have it cleaned and don’t know how it’s going to come out, so I’m nervous! Interested to hear more about your dress!
