I don’t have pictures of me in them, but this is the first one I tried on:

It was massive! I looked like I was stuck in a cloud! The dress is Gia by Henry Roth

The runner up is Kendra by Henry Roth. Beautiful, beautiful dress but felt too formal my casual wedding.

And the winner – Harley by Henry Roth – love love love it!

This one is both the first one I tried on, and THE dress.  There is no runner-up, as it was the only one I tried on.

My first dress and runner-up dress, Anne Barge La Fleur 161 (they wouldn’t let us take pictures at this salon, so the designer pic will have to do):


And my actual dress, Enzoani Blue Davenport:

I don’t have pictures of me in all of them, but here they are:

First Dress: Pronovias Alison Not a bad first start, but I looked a little too much like a flamenco dancer.

Runner-Up: Essence of Australia D1170  Very pretty dress and a VERY close runner-up!

The ONE: Enzoani Finley I just kept thinking about her when I tried on all the other dresses.  Went back to try her on immediately after trying on the Essence of Australia and I just couldn’t stop looking in the mirror and at the back of her!  My entourage said they could tell I like her so much more than the other one.  Here she is on the day I decided.  Not the best pic but my actual dress should get here any day!  I also ordered a more “glitzy” belt that I might end up wearing instead of the black one.

The Dress.  Impressions Bridal, Blush (1800.00)


I always love to know how gown price out.  It was a consideration for me, given how I had budgeted for a gown.

Unfortunately, I don’t have photos of me in the first or the runner up…but I’ll play!

First dress that I tried on:  Beautiful, but I looked like one giant left hip.


Runner up:  Just didn’t have quite enough wow factor to it for me.  My mom and Maid/Matron of Honor agreed that it needed bling or a crazy shape or something haha!

And the winner!!

On me…keep in mind that the sample was gigantic on my petite frame…

The first dress I tried on… I wasn’t a fan of the waist line but I loved the bottom.

It was a 3 way tie between these 2 below and my dress…

sometimes I still wish I would have gotten this one…

First dress….
It was actually a dress by a private label so I have no image.. but similar to this…

I did try on a few similar to that but I’m a bigger girl (about a size 12) and I felt like I was hiding behind the very poufy ballgowns.

My runner up was this beauty:

But I just felt it didn’t have enough “Ooomph” for me…

And the winner!

The model looks absolutely ridiculous in it, but it looks amazing on… not so much pouf on it in real life!  More A-line than ridiculous ballgown. Also I’m getting rid of the dreadful white satin ribbon.. ugh.
