Hmm. I cant really say I searched and never found it. Because I only went shopping one day and in two stores. But I specifically went to the second store to find it.

Casablanca 1900


One of the first dresses I fell in love with. The store didnt have it, and I almost didnt buy my dress just to see if I could find the 1900 elsewhere, but I just loved my dress too much to pass it up.

It’s the one that got away because it only came out after I had already bought my dress!!

I drooled over the Maggie Sottero Isadora Marie for a long time 


I planned on going to a few shops to try on dresses, but I bought a dress at the first store (they did not sell Maggie) because I fell absolutely head over heels for it!  I kinda wish I would have tried Isadora Marie on, but I do not regret my decision and I can’t wait until my Allure 2513 comes in! Smile

This one. I have been obsessed with it since I first saw the movie when I was a little girl. Of course there was no way to get it. Cry

The first dressed i obsessed over was the Claire Pettibone Brigitte. I knew it was my dream dress and i had to have it! i absolutely wanted a lacy back and a dress with a romantic feel. 

However, the nearest bridal store that carried CP was at least 4 hours away and i found a little bridal shop an hour away that carried Jenny Packham. My dress was the first one i tried on and to me is completely different than what i was originally going for but i felt so great in it.

Olivia by Wtoo.  I LOVED IT.  It was the first dress I ever tried on, and I thought I’d found it…except the color (oatmeal) basically matched my skin tone.  So, I tried it on in ivory at another store…and HATED IT.  =(

I’m very happy with the dress I found, and I like that things worked out the way they did, but I really thought this dress was THE ONE. Unfortunately the company that makes it was shady and kept giving me the brush off when I asked them if they were going to make one in my size (they only had too-big ones) so I moved on.

The Mori Lee dress I could not find anywhere : 

The Cinderella dress I found after searching… fell in LOVE then found out it was going to be almost double my budget

And the dresses I fell in LOVE with late in my search but was from the Spring Collection and I couldn’t order in time
