Ok ladies originally I saw myself in a few different dress at davids bridal thought they were cute. I thought I had found the one there but it felt like I was settling for what my friends wanted and not what I or SO would want so nix all DB dresses. I then saw a beautiful dress that I was so in love with was about to buy it SO saw it and said hope you dont wear that when we get married she looks like a cupcake ok nix that dress. Saw another dress then just couldnt commit to it that is until I saw Maggie Sottero Elya. I love her she is all that I want and then some. When I look at it and it is several times a day my heart beats fast I swoon and I am in love with her so elegant an d me. Ladies what are your dress shopping experiences verse what you want and what other want for you???

Let me start by saying I only took my mom and my fmil with me. They were NO help whatsoever because everything I put on they thought was “beautiful”. AND THAT WAS NOT TRUE — I would have loved to take my brother with me b/c he is amazing with things like that; however, he is very opinionated. I didn’t want to fall in love with something and then have such “bad” remarks. I also didn’t want my Fiance to see the dress until the day.
I went in with an idea of dresses I wanted to try — but I was open to try anything, since I had never tried on dresses like that before. I love my dress. I knew it immediately. I got it at the 1st store I went to, but didn’t want to buy it b/c I thought I needed to look more. Nothing compared to that dress. I only went to 1 other store .. then made an appt about a month later to return and try on my beloved dress – it was still what I imagined.
About your SO seeing a dress you liked and hating it — I had a friend who took her Fiance with her to try on dresses-she loved one that he didn’t like. She ended up buying that one anyway. On the wedding day he told her she had picked the most beautiful dress he could imagine. She mentioned to him that it was the same one he didn’t like at the store and he was floored.

Stressful an disappointing.
Money is not the issue, I am however trying to keep it as low in price as possible.
I… For the life of me… Cannot figure out who I want to be on my wedding. I’ve found tons of dresses that look great on me but something just isn’t right. I’ve tried on about 30 dresses and although they all look really good, they’re just not “me”.
I’m going again on the 7th to try on a more simple dress that I have high hopes for (Wtoo Sorella). Let’s see what happens!
Wish me luck!
