- Wedding: June 2013
on a whim one of my BMs and i went and tried on wedding dresses on saturday. i hadnt been planning to go at all, so maybe it would have been a bit more productive if i had a better game plan. but we were bored and i mentioned wanting to go one day soon, so she called and made an appoint at david’d bridal for that afternoon while we were on the way to a walk-in only botique she knew about.
the botique was frustrating because it was essentially a samples warehouse and everything was a size 4 or 10. i am a size 14/16 and tried on a few 16s and 18s, but their selection was dismal.
this is the first ever wedding dress i tried on:
i liked it but i think its because it was the first dress. and of course my arms are gross in it.
we tried on a few others but they werent even worth photographing.
then we were on to DB. i have heard the horror stories but i was excited to go there and know they would have things that would look good on me. i wish i had had more time to look at dresses when we got there, because my consultant never asked me what i liked and immediately told me “we dont always carry everything in bigger sizes.”
F you, davids bridal lady! you make it sound like i cant fit in rollercoasters or something! extra frustrating since i have lost a good chunk of weight in the last 6 months… i was like “that’s fine. i was prepared for that.” she said she would get me a lot of things and then she only brought me like 4 dresses. one was a ballgown i thought id love but i felt lost in it and didnt even take a pic.
i tried on this one, and it looks like a maternity dress:
this one, the shape was ok but the dress i am on the fence about… its not my style:
this one my friend was really into, going on about my hourglass figure, and the sales lady wanted to make a sale so she was talking it up, but when i got home and saw the pictures i was like “wtf were these people thinking??”:
i did love the back though…
nothing worked for me… looks like i am getting married in sweatpants 🙁
