AW: My dress!

FI is out of the apartment for a bit, finally!

Ok, so we've been engaged for over 2 years, and, for various reasons, ended up postponing planning. So, last summer, as FI was contemplating going back to school (where he now is), I got bored and insomniac and went online to look at dresses to make me feel better.

I saw The Dress. I immediately emailed my girls, and my mom, and said, "Ok, so we don't have a date, or the budget, but I love this dress. Mom, can we go try it on?" She said yes, and her, FMIL and myself went to DB.

I tried it on. Mom cried. I tried on a few others for form's sake (as well as seeing what I looked like in ivory, because I look D.E.A.D. in stark white). Meh. I tried on The Dress again. Mom cried. Again.

It was on sale, so Mom (who was going to buy my dress, anyway) bought it. Veil, crinoline, headpiece and all. We ordered in July, it came in by August, and now it lives at Mom's.



(I'm on two books, here, to simulate the high heels I'll be wearing.)





I love it. I walked around in it for 15 minutes just feeling wonderful. It needs a bit of taking in/cups in the bust, and obviously a bustle/shoring up the train holder, but other than that... it's perfect.

    Wow, that dress looks great on you.  I am the one with the same dress for my reception.  Although I could never pull the straps off like you can, so I took them out.  I am hoping to get mine soon, they are just finishing up the final alterations.  I will post when I get it.

    Thank you, ladies. I truly love this dress. It's like the designer knows me. Now I just want to wear it where FI can see it. (He's got his head down looking at Summit Catering information right now. LOL.)
