I just said "yes" to the dress a couple of weeks ago!
This is my dress, David's Bridal style number 9E9351. Sorry, the picture of me modeling it is sideways; My mom didn't take very good pictures! :-/ I'm pictured wearing a veil, but I am going to wear a tiara instead. I loved seeing all you beautiful ladies' pictures!

First one I tried on and fell in LOVE with it!
David's Bridal was my first choice to locate a dress - and I was determined to find something simple and inexpensive. However, as I'm a shopaholic, I knew that I'd probably find 5 million "likes" and not be able to narrow the search of a wedding dress to just one.
As I entered the store, I already knew there were slim-pickings of the dresses as the David's Bridal where I reside is the only "fancy" dress shop around. I grabbed a dress which I thought might look too "quineanera-ish," but I tried it on and found just the opposite; it was PERFECT.
I don't remember the style, but it is a David's Bridal dress - and at this time last year, it was $900. I resentfully left the store, b/c I wanted to find something THAT day.
That night, I went online to Craigslist and lo and behold the EXACT dress (same size, EVERYTHING!) someone was selling - along with a petticoat, veil, and tiara, all for the price of $250! It had been dry cleaned, stored, and ready to sell as she wanted to get rid of it. I called the woman up in Seattle and met her that weekend and couldn't believe the "miracle" which happened for my dress search!
Here are some pics of the dress the day of, as I don't have pictures from the try-on day.
I wore pink thin-strapped flip flops as well, seeing I'm already fairly tall, and I wanted my dress to fall perfectly.
Hey, I found my dress!

I said yes!!! I wasn't even going to try this dress on didn't think it would look good on me. I used to weigh 299lbs I have been working hard and have lost 120lbs of weight but when I look in the mirror I still see the same old me. I almost lost the dress of my dreams out of fear! Just goes to show you need to try on EVERYTHING because you don't know what you are going to look good in. What do you think ladies??? Is it a keeper
Here is mine! I can't figure out how to rotate it, but here it is!
Thanks you guys!!! I love how incredibly kind everyone is here...
