Dream Dress was impossible to find in a bridal shop.

 

My actual dress is so amazing I don’t even care about the old dream.

@vivalasylvia:  The one with the lacey straps is Coco by Amsale (she did modify the straps, the original dress had spaghetti straps).  The other one (the one with the mirror in the picture, spaghetti straps, A-line) I can’t find!  That is the one dress I will always wonder about.  Although I am happy with my choice, I still wish I could have tried it on.  If you find it let me know!

@MrsPocahontas:  OMG that’s awesome!! I just saw it on their site. Did you have an ok experience with them? Also, how did the dress look when it arrived? Was the quality good?

I didn’t really have a “dream” dress but this was my original inspiration

 

This is my actual dress – not the best shot of it but I still don’t have my professional photos so this is just a guest picture

I had two dream dresses in mind… Galia Lahav and Maggie Sottero. I had both pics in my phone since before we got engaged hehe 

 

 

 

When it came time to try on dresses I realized Galia was way out of my price range so I called a million places and finally found my Adalee ❤️ And turns out my Maggie dream dress will offcially be My wedding dress!!!

Long, loooongo before getting engaged, I fell in love with this dress, Mirabelle by J. Crew:

I just loved how chill it was, looked super comfy and romantic. When actual real-life engagement happened, Mirabelle was no longer available on their website… So I found a beautiful alternative in Heidi:

 

 

 

Again, very chill and un-fussy and perfect for me. BUT, when the time came to seriously consider buying my dress (plus a great sale was on) the Heidi dress was only available in 0 and 00 sizes, plus petite. At 5’9″ and decently curvy, I knew I’d never be able to squeeze into those sizes.

I kept looking! And what I ended up with is just impossibly gorgeous and so “me”… I even got some super special alterations done to make it even more my style… Here’s the stock photo… Hope to have more pics of me and this special dress in a few months!

Dream dress, but this style was over budget, and I found one I love below budget!this is my dress, and I think I actually love it more than what I thought was my dream dress.
