AHHHH, I’m so excited! I picked out my dress last night! I lucked out, because at the Bridal Boutique last night, they are showcasing this one designer (which I believe is exclusive to them) Elizabeth James and her trunk show starts this friday. Well my cosultant said she asked her manager, and I was able to get the trunk show prices. So every dress that I tried on was $799! And these dresses went up in price to $1900.
I tried on 10 dresses and I had 3 in my ‘yes’ rack. Well, when I tried on the last one, it blew everything else I tried on away. I love it! The dress fit me perfectly. Every other dress I felt like a stuffed sausage i, I didn’t love any of the others. This one made me look long and skinny. I never thought a dress could make me look that skinny and this is the only dress where I felt like I was wearing it, rather than the dress wearing me.
Well, my dress that I picked turned out to be one of the cheapest I tried on, retail price $799. So rather than doing the trunk show price, since it was already at that price, my consultant said that since I am planning on buying my bridesmaid dresses there that I get 20% off them AND 20% off my dress also!!! So my dress only ended up being $650!
And unfortunatly I do not have any pictures, my MOH/future sisterinlaw took a bunch, but I am forbidden to have them, since they know I would just run home and show FH. Which she is completely in the right for thinking so.
