The lady at one store I went to picked this one out for me… this was the first one I tried on and I HATED it! Not to mention it was a size 20 or something and I wear a 14 or 16

I ended up with this one that the lady at David’s Bridal picked out for me(I haven’t bought it yet though)

Aww this thread is awesome! Love the first and final dress photos =) everyone looks amazing!

I would post the first dress I tried… but I honestly looked hideous in it. It wasn’t because of the dress….. the dress just didn’t look good on ME at all… I don’t know what it was……. but yes… it did not look flattering to me. As soon as I saw myself in the mirror… I just HAD to remove it right away.

Anyway, here are the pics…

FIRST DRESS:

 

AND THEN I TRIED ABOUT 10 MORE DRESSES…

 

AND THE FINAL DRESS I ENDED UP CHOOSING IS THIS:

 

 

 

LOOOOOOVE IT =D AND I’M HAPPY WITH IT! thank goodness i didnt go for the first one

@pengoala:

I dont even know why the consultant pulled that dress for me, it wasn’t even the style dress I had requested.. I’m guessing it is their go to dress for a specific price range…

@pengoala: She really didn’t know what she was doing at all… she had it kind of clipped in the back to try to keep it up. But the DB consultand looked at me and then the dresses that I picked out and ran over to the racks and grabed that one. I tried on all of the ones I picked to but they didn’t compare to that one πŸ™‚ and if everything goes well I should get it by the end of the month or the beginning of next month!

What a fun thread! This was my first dress. I still love the dress itself, but it just looked awful on me! I’ve seen it on other bees and I get super jealous that they can wear it! I don’t know what it is about this dress, it’s like an unhealthy romance or something. Needless to say, it’s not the one I ended up with.

@dynamic_duo: Aw, thanks so much! I’m still a bit leary, as it was only my first time trying on dresses, today, but as soon as I put it on, I exclaimed, “I feel pretty!” I’m not a fan of the flower embellishments, or the ‘pickups’ either, so I’m sort of on the prowl for something similar.. *crosses fingers*. The cheaper, the better, too! πŸ˜›

The first dress I ever tried on was at a bridal show, where a local salon was trying to unload a whole schwack of dresses that their own seamstress had designed for their store line. It was nice, and incredibly well boned for a non-designer dress- but it was too blah for the wedding. I prefer the romantic feel of the dress I bought.

This was the first one that I tried on!  I don’t have a pic of myself in it though.  I LOVED the dress on the hanger…but when I tried it on, I looked like one giant left hip.  πŸ™‚
