Found my dress!

I've been engaged for a few months and we've been working away at our wedding plans.  I started looking at dresses online last week and fell in love with a dress.  I decided to go try it on and see if it looked as good in person.  I called the bridal shop in my area that carries that designer to see if they had a sample and I was told they didn't.  However, they did have several similar dresses I could try on if I wanted an appointment.  My sister and I figured we'd just go and try on different dress shapes and have fun with it.

I went in thinking that I didn't want any ruching, and no satin.  I wanted a ball gown and really wanted a beaded top.  And I love tulle.  Nothing on the rack was anything similar to what I had seen online.  Finally I told my sister to just pull a few for the shape and something totally different.  I might hate the dress, but if I liked the shape, we'd be one step closer.

I had five different dresses to try on and I figured I'd try the dress that was opposite of what I thought I wanted first because I was going to hate it.  Joke's on me!  I LOVED everything about it!  I tried on ten dresses but nothing stacked up to the orginal.  I wouldn't leave the dressing room but finally ventured out to check it out in the big mirror.  My sister asked if we could see it with a belt.  The first belt was OK, but she asked to see another belt.  I wasn't even paying attention to what my sister and the consultant were doing but all of a sudden I saw the whole thing together and it was perfect!  I knew it was the "one".  I'm not the type to get like that about a dress, but I just knew anyway.

We're going back in two weeks with my mom and aunt to see what they think, but I'm 99% sure I'm going to get that dress.  And it was only half of my budget.

So excited I wanted to share!

    Yay, what a great story! This is definitely a lesson to all of the ladies out there who haven't found their dress -- try on at least a few dresses you would never imagine yourself wearing, because you NEVER KNOW. I went in thinking I wanted one thing, and ended up purchasing something completely different from my original vision, because my original vision? In reality looked like poo poo on me.

    So happy you found your dress!

    <div>Congrats on your dress!  And since you were under budget you can put that money towards another part of the wedding or just save it.  <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-smile.gif" border="0" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /></div>
