Not Engaged Yet

Bought my wedding dress!

So I finally got to go dress shopping with my mom and sisters over the weekend.  The store was great.  Literally every dress the consultant picked out was something I liked.  And you could actually look through the dresses yourself, unlike the other stores I've been to.  A lot of them even had price tags too.  Imagine!

And I fell in love with one of the dresses.  Actually two but I love the one I ultimately picked out the most.  It's lace with a corset back, and strapless (I know!) but I am adding cap sleeves.  I am calling them tomorrow to figure out the style number (I know it's Demetrios but don't know which one).

It looks sort of like this one but there's no sash:

I'm excited to have finally found a dress I love.  I paid for about half of it.  It was in my budget too so bonus!  Smile

    Thanks.

    Oh and I should add that it's champagne, which I love.  A little different and very elegant.

    That's great! I'm glad you had a better experience this time.  And I love the dress and the color choice- I don't think I'll pick a white dress either.

    Yay!! Congrats NQB!!! It looks beautiful. Were you able to take pictures when you tried it on? I'd love to see them!

    ps. Have you guys gotten any snow in Albany yet? None here in Syracuse and it's starting to weird me out. Not complaining but I went for a walk today with a long sleeve shirt. No coat.

    No snow yet.  Perish the thought.  The weather has been kind of nice lately. 

    I did take pics and I'm still waiting for my sister to email them to me.  I only looked at them briefly but my face is pissed off during most of them because when we went back to buy the dress the consultant I had was busy so the manager helped me and she laced up the corset way too low.  So I look kind of silly but I will post them when I get them!

    Congratulations! It's a nice thing to not have to worry about looking for a dress.
    I know the one in the picture isn't exactly it, but it's very pretty. I went to demitrios in my dress search and tried on one really similar.
    Plus I'm sure that lace would look awesome in champagne.

    Yay! NQB! I am so glad you had a better experience this time :) I love your dress choice. I also bought a strapless and had sleeves put on, and I thought that was a good way to go since I got to tweak them until they were just right.

    I LOVE Your dress. A beautiful classy choice. We haven't got any snow in Oslo, Norway yet either. Which is very strange. But rather than questioning it I am enjoying the warmer November rain. Ok it's not warm, but much warmer than it usually is.

    Lace and champagne color...yum.  I'm so happy for you.  I can't wait to see pictures of you in it.  Congrats!

    Yay!  I'm glad you were able to go with your mom and have a good experience.  Did you leave the friend at home this time?  Hahaha.  :)

    Update: Just got off the phone with the store and they told me not every style is online and that's why I can't find my dress.  Cry

    Does that sound like a lie to anyone else?

    I'm calling Demetrios.

    You can't find it on the bridal shop website or the designer website?

    If it's the shop, and it's a smaller shop, I wouldn't be surprised if their website isn't updated.

    If it's the designer website, maybe its an older style? 

    Good luck!

    She said it was a "store exclusive" and that the designer doesn't list all their dresses on their web sites.  I'm trying not to get too worked up over it but I've never spent this amount of money on something I couldn't even look up online, you know?  My sister is sending me the pictures tonight so I have to just be patient.  Ugh!

    Oh ok, I understand.  I'm sure you'll feel much better once you get to see it in the pictures again!

    It does seem kind of weird that you can't find it on the designer website at all though.

    I had the same issue NQB with not being able to find my dress online no matter how hard I searched.  But its beautiful! and I wouldn't worry too much about that, at least you got pictures in yours, I can't until my first fitting :( I just have a picture of it on a dummy lol
