AW: Ordering my dress tonight!

OK, so I posted about it in the "Good Morning" thread but thought I'd make a separate post for it.  We went to MB Bride yesterday, and tried on about 20 dresses in about an hour (we were quick).  The very first one I tried on was the one I've been obsessing over and the one I'm getting, sort of.  The one I tried on was Justin Alexander 8483, which is the full length version of the one I want, and it was in Ivory/Natural.  The one I really want is Justin Alexander 8465, which is tea length, and I want it in the Coffee/Natural color because that makes the top really pop.  There was no emotional, crying, "This is the one" moment because that's just not how we are-- my MOH and mom were cracking me up the whole time.  We did have a lot of fun, but I think I weirded out the consultant because they were all snap decisions, and I was comparing every single dress to the first one.  My mom and MOH said it was very obvious that was my favorite, and that I didn't like any of the others as much as that one.

Picture of me in 8483:  please ignore my dumb look, I was talking to my mom and just generally being a doofus.

And this is Justin Alexander 8465, which is what I'm ordering.

I did get to try on a tea length dress at David's Bridal later in the afternoon, and it confirmed that is what I want because I adored it.  Plus you can see my shoes if I have a tea length dress on!

    Thanks everyone!  I have to order soon... it takes about 5 months to come in (give or take) and then about a month for alterations... and now I can start planning everything else!
