I went on my very first dress-trying outing last night, and I was TERRIFIED because I had just had a less than successful NORMAL shopping trip to Kohls the night before.... Anyway, I went to Lavinia's Bridal, and she tried a ton of different styles on me... Then, she tried a Maggie Sottera (that I wouldn't have been able to afford to order) sample on me, in my size, and I FELL IN LOVE. Bought the sample. No need to even LOOK any further! It's everything I could have wanted.
I'm cancelling my David's Bridal appointment for Monday,
I am SOOOOO happy! She let me take photos in all the ones I liked prior to that one then a TON in that one... Now I have to resist showing EVERYONE my gown because it has to be a surprise!
I couldn't be a happier bride at the moment. All my fears of a long, ridiculous, drawn out, tear-filled, gown shopping experience are gone and I have the perfect designer dress that fits my budget! She said only one other girl had even tried the sample on, and it looks brand new!
Just venting my happiness here
