After having my parents and sister come and look at the final dress contenders, I have made a decision.
I know it is not the dress that most of the bees preferred. But after putting all the dresses back on, it really is “the one”. It is very simple and classic (like me) and it just FEELS so good on. I didn’t want to take it off. Plus it was everyone’s favorite above and beyond anything else I put on.And the dress is made to measure, so there it no trying to fit into a size, it will fit perfectly.
So, without further ado, here is my dress (the top isn’t fitting right, last photos are model photos for reference):
And the back:
So far I also have my shoes:
And am planning on a soft updo and very sparkly vintage style drop earrings, since the top is so plain, I will do something fun with earrings and maybe in my hair.
So what do you think?
I’m excited to go back to the store and actually order the dress and be measured. I can’t believe I made a decision.

YEA!!! What a great feeling 🙂 My sisters had to have the final say for me too! It is beautiful! I love the color of the gown and the bustle on the model!

@SoontobeMrsA: That is what I think made it “the one”. I have NEVER seen anything like it. All the other dresses I tried, I’d “seen before”. Maybe not the exact dress, but something very similar. This dress just really made me feel special.

The dress is very understated, which is not a lot of what we see now. I love the elegance of it. The shoes are amazing as well! What color are they?

@CantWaittillMAY: Thanks! The color is actually “white” but since it’s a silk satin it is a much warmer white. The back isn’t bustled int he picture (added a different one showing the full back), that’s the draping on the back.
@RayRayFurious: Thanks! I love my shoes. They are a gray satin and I want to wear them ALL the time.

congrats! i actually love this dress after seeing the model pic. maybe the sample was manhandled a little too much so the pleats are out of whack? you’re going to look gorgeous!

@kitzy: Haha probably true. I’m sure this dress has been tried on hundreds of times. Also the sample is a little too small, sot the pleats/draping isn’t laying exactly where they should. The fabric is amazing and SO nice to the touch.

This is the same dress a friend of my husband’s wife wore at her wedding!!! It is truly stunning!!! You’re right, i’d never seen anything like it before she wore it. Not that you know her, but it’s really pretty in person!
