THE DRESS - Major check!

Ladies, my goal for this week (since I'm on vacation) was to get my wedding gown.  And I did it!  It's by Pnina Tornai, purchased at Kleinfeld in NYC.  Full corset inside, so the back just laces up. I also bought a veil and headpieces by Maria Elena at White Dress by the Shore in CT.



I was actually measured for my gown by Pnina Tornai herself.  She was fantastic!!







This model is wearing my headpiece for the wedding...






...and I bought the black flower to wear for my rehearsal dinner.  Do you guys like the things I chose?  I've missed posting all week!!!  :)

    Wow I feel like I'm looking at pics of a celebrity after watching so many SYTTD. Who was your consultant? Did you see Randy!!?!! :)

    OMG! Agree with pp! You're now a local celebrity in my book! I have never missed an episode of Say Yes to the Dress. I daydream about going there for my search, but I'm too afraid I'd fall in love with something I can't have. If I did go, I would want Sarah or Audrey as my consultant. Who was yours? Beautiful gown!! Congratulations!!!

    My consultant was Vivian - she is occasionally on the show but not much.  She has been a close friend of my grandmother for over 30 years.  My mom and both of my grandmothers accompanied me to my appointment, and Vivian really took care of me, even helped get me a bit more of a discount on the dress (I went during the Pnina trunk show - FYI that means 12.5% off people! which is higher than the industry standard of 10% off for a trunk show).

    Guys - if you fit into sample sizes (so if you are a size 8, maybe 10 or smaller) there are always samples available to try on, you can possibly land a very high end gown for a fraction of the price!  If you buy a sample be prepared to pay the full amount for your gown that day, though.

    The gown I purchased makes me feel like a celebrity!  And believe it or not it was at the lower end of price as far as Pninas go, which made my mom really happy.
