- Wedding: November 2017
I said yes to the dress yesterday! This is such a personal achievement as well, as I’ve been working HARD since getting engaged to slim down, and as of this morning’s weigh-in I am down 47 lbs! Dress shopping anxiety was my number one push to initially get the ball rolling for me… and I am so thankful that it did! We paid for the dress last night to take advantage of the trunk show discount, but they said I would be safe to actually wait and order the dress mid-Feb. So that gives me a little more time to get closer to my end weight before going back in to get my measurements done and get the dress ordered!
The dress is Watters, the Wtoo line, and the dress name is Warren. I was originally drawn to the romantic flowy Anna Campbell dresses and absolutely loved the whimsical modern vibe of Hayley Paige. I think this dress is a good bit traditional, but still feels very 2017 and whimsical! But most importantly it was the first dress to fit me like a glove and flatter my body! Above all I wanted to be confident and I think this one will do it. It was also below budget, win-win!
I’m going to be adding thin straps (thats why the string is sorta hanging there in these pics) to create a wide halter neckline that sort of criss crosses down my back. I think that will also lean towards the Hayley Paige vibe I was feeling. I am also going to take out a bit of the under layers- it’ll still be super ballgowny, just not AS wide!
This is the back on the model since I dont have any of me on my phone!
