I went on my birthday to a bridal salon and found my dress! I’m super excited because it just arrived at the salon the night before and I was the first person to try on the dress! It’s a Maggie Sottero dress called “Brianna”.

Thank you for all your support, hive! I really appreciate your kind words because my mom HATES the dress. This is something I was prepared for because she is very very traditional and wanted a traditional ballgown with beading and lace. We went dress shopping a few times together when I was home for the holidays and it was an extremely frustrating and demoralizing process because of our extreme differences in style.
I tried on the dresses she picked to try and please her and in hopes that maybe I would like them, but they just aren’t ME. So when I found this dress, I knew she wouldn’t like it but hoped maybe she would still say I was pretty in it. Unfortunately, it just led to an angry phone call with her hanging up on me when I said I wouldn’t exchange it. Soooo…I’m just a little bummed because having my mom’s approval was something I would have liked – even if I wasn’t expecting it. BUT at least I still have your approval, hive! 🙂
