June 2013 Weddings

So... yeah....

I think I found THE dress!!!

After stressing for so long and trying on SOOO many dresses I think I finally found it!!!

I kept telling my girls I wanted to check out this one store (I actually think one of you lovely ladies who is close to me suggested it originally - JennLax perhaps?) and because it was a little further from me I kept putting it off.

Well I said Nov 1st I have to make a decision and purchase a dress (I had 6 contenders - all of which were nice) so I had an appointment at the last store for this sat but one of my BMs who I really wanted to go was going away this weekend so I moved the appointment to yesterday and skipped out of work a little early and we went to the store) I tried on a bunch and found one I quite liked but then I turned around and really disliked the back - It looked really odd from behind lol) so we asked if they had something similar but full pick ups in the back... 10 mins later she came back with 2 dresses - one of which was THE one!!!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!

When I put it on and looked at myself in the mirror I knew it was the one I've been envisioning and holding out for!  I honestly didn't think I'd have that feeling sooo I'm quite relieved. (and I didn't cry although I almost did since my MoH and BM did lol)

I'll post the pics if you guys want to see them... however I will likely delete them in a few days as I know FI knows I frequent these forums lol (And he'll know my handle in a second, much less, you know, see me in the pics haha)

Re: So... yeah....

  • Yay!!!! So excited for you!! Maybe post it on the facebook group since only members have access and can see our pictures? Then you don't have to worry about him accidentally seeing it.

  • I was going to post it on FB last night but FI sits right behind me (full view of my screens) so I can't post it or have it show up on my feeds on my comp as he'll definitely see it, So here is safer for now lol

    Please ignore my bra straps lol Forgot my strapless bra at home and only remembered enroute to the store :s

  • Thanks ladies =)

    I love the detail on it and I think it's quite flattering (which is sometimes hard to find when looking at 'plus size' dresses.)

  • Thanks Ladies =)

    I just couldn't believe how flattering it was. It's a great dress! I'm going back with my mom on Nov 1st to show her and make the purchase!!!

    OMG it was sooo stressful and I'm so relieved =)

    JennLax - I <3 ya!!! I would've never known about that store if it wasn't for you!! I was debating about going there (so many people mention stores and onviously you can't visit them all!) and so I was looking at this line by Calista Bridal and that store was one of the resellers of  it and I'm like PERFECT! A recommendation by you AND they have dresses I know I'll like, now I have to check it out!! (Funnily enough, I didn't even get to try on ANY of the Calista dresses haha)

    Thank you sooooo much for your recommendation =)
