So I desperately need advice. Here’s the situation: It took me several weeks to find my “perfect” dress…satin, ruching, fit and flare with some bling. After trying on several dresses, I was initially really torn between the Allure 8859 and Mori Lee 1653. I loved the fit of the Allure, but didn’t like the Taffeta Satin fabric. I liked the thicker regular satin like the Mori Lee, but felt like it had a little too much bling going on. I decided to wait and stumbled across an Essense of Australia D1006 at a sample sale. I loved the combination of satin and lace, but it was 3 sizes too small. I had such high hopes of losing all this weight, so I bought it. Well fast forward to today, I’m now just under 3 months away from the big day and have only lost 1 dress size. 🙁 I’m now in panic, I don’t think I can lose enough weight to fit in my dress or at least I don’t want to chance it. And neither the D1006 nor the two I originally liked can be ordered in time.
So I’m looking for a new dress kind of last minute. The shop I visited today had the Essense of Australis #1541 in stock in my size. At first I initially dismissed it because it’s tulle and I really didn’t think I would like it. But the saleswomen convinced me to just try it on with it a belt and I actually really liked/loved. The fit was perfect and flattering, the belt added the bling. She says it’s very popular, but I can’t find any pictures of other brides in it. My hesistation is the tulle, I just always pictured satin.
Anyone have pictures of themselves in this dress? Any advice? I need to make a decision asap.
Thanks in advance!
