@pengoala: Thanks, peng! The dress isn’t my final decision, yet (it was my first time trying on dresses, and I only tried on 3–there wasn’t much of a selection in the small town), but at least I know what to look for, now!

I know that this isn’t the very first dress I tried on, but it was towards the beginning of the search,

I bought this one:

I know the first one looks better in these pictures, but the sample came in my size, whereas I’m clipped into the second one! (We all know how that goes!)

@brighteyedgirl:  Thanks so much!!  It definitely needs to be fitted…I go for my first fitting in August!  I’m a little worried…since I bought the dress, I lost about 11 pounds.  My size 10 dress now needs to fit a size 4 body.  Whoops.  DB’s sizing is wacky though…I probably fit in like, their 6 or 8 at this point.  We’ll see what happens!  Watch, I probably lost like, all boobs or something…LOL

@pengoala:  David’s Bridal told me to do my first fitting around 6 weeks before the wedding…def call your bridal shop or tailor and see what they say!  ๐Ÿ™‚

I loved this all lace Jim Hjelm dress from J.Andrew’s bridal. I have had three kids, this is for my 15th wedding anniversary so I wanted lace, very romantic.

 

 

 

This is THE dress of my dreams, I am in love with it another Jim Hjelm from J.Andrews Birdal
