I tried on a loooooot of dresses. But these were the ones that i liked the most but were just shy of enough. Super happy with what I picked though.

What a great thread! The pictures almost show the journey for each bride! 

Here are a few of mine that didn’t make the cut.

This one was pretty but too plain even with the added belt.

This one was so pretty and I still really like it, especially the back! Unfortunatly, the material was really cheap and I the little gems on the illusion neck looked like plastic.

This one was made of beautiful raw eastern silk and felt lovely on but I was worried it was just a bit too plain so I put it on a back burner as I shopped some more. 

This was my second runner up! I got in and out of this one and the one I chose a few times!

Here is the dress I ultimately picked! I’m so in love with it and I can’t wait to put it on again in a few months when it arrives!

Refuse5These 3 were all great in their own way I really did like them, they just didn’t meet the vision/wow I was going for. A) Allure B) Stella York  C) Sophia Tolli.

Haha, I went to about eleven shops over the course of a month and was seriously starting to lose it by the time I found the one I ended up buying. I even made myself a little collage to commemorate the crazy. You can see how my idea of what I wanted sort of evolved from the lower left corner up and around.

I still think about that third one frequently. When I had it on, it didn’t grab me the way mine does, but I kind of wish mine were a little more unique like that one is.

What a fun post! I sadly don’t have a lot of pics of the other ones I tried on. But this one I tried on and was very close to getting it! (excuse my appearance I just had my baby a week and a half before this) 

 

Couldnt close anything up πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

 

and nt then what I picked! So in love with it and motivated me to get my sexy back! Because it was such a sexy open pearl draping back haha last pic similar dress but put it on to get a feel of the dress without the illusion neckline because I’m removing it off of my dress and adding illusion/ lace sleeves.

This was the 1st one I tried on: 

Definitely not the right body type for this dress!

This was a close contender!

And this was also a close contender!!

And this was the one I ended up with! Taken right after the ceremony! πŸ™‚
