- Wedding: May 2010
I bought my dress! I think it is almost exactly 6 months before our wedding and I bought it this weekend! I drove from Tallahassee and met my mom and sister in Jacksonville. The southside Davids Bridal was wonderful. The store was crowded but we had a great experience. The staff was all calm and happy to be at work.
I was having trouble with a dress because I don’t think I am really a lacy or fancy style of girl. I was in love with the Maggie Sottero Adelaide but in the end I decided it was a nice evening dress style. Not quite special enough for my wedding dress.
I found another really elegant dress at Davids but again, it was too elegant/fancy for my personality. At the last minute our DB consultant pulled this dress. It fit my personality perfectly.
For lack of a better term, we started calling it a swan dress. It fits because we are having our wedding at the zoo. I knew this was the dress because I did not want to take it off or have anyone else try it on. Also, it was the first dress that I could imagine wearing when the church doors are pulled open. And most importantly, I wanted to party down all night in this dress! There is no way I would consider a reception dress!
This dress is so different, I do not think I am going to share with anyone besides my mom and sister. I really want there to be a WOW factor. I might have to share with my BMs because it is going to be hard to find Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that goes with this. I am trying to find a good way to describe this dress!
