Dress in!!!!!

Sooooo....to try and make a long story short, I had a dress.  Against most people's opinion's I bought another dress (ekkkkk!!!) Not spontaneously, necessarily, but I did it on my own. I didn't take anyone with me to get other's thoughts and just made a decision to by this on my own.  I had been having 2nd thoughts about my previous dress for about 6 months.  I kept trying to make it what it wasn't.  I finally decided (without asking anyone else what they thought at the time) to go try on this other dress that I found in a magazine about a month and a half ago.  The store I went to actually had my first dress.  I tried them on side by side and knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that this "other" dress, was the one.  I wouldn't necessarily recommend this whole thought process to anyone else but it worked for me.  So fast forward to today, the dress came in ( a few days ago) and I went and had my first "unofficial" fitting. I LOVED it even more than the first time I tried it on. Although it was slightly controversial decision (according to my family), I know without a doubt this is the dress that I am suppose to walk down the aisle to my FH in!!!!!! I also know this would be the dress my Mom would've picked too! I have never felt so beautiful in anything in my life!!! Thanks for reading...just so overwhelemd with happiness about how it all worked out.  Even if the process was a little "different".

    Haha Thanks Lou!  Is your dress in?? Have you started any of your fittings yet? Can you believe you are at the 3 month mark???  FH and I are freaking out (in the good way!;)  I'm kind of just ready to do it!:) haha  How far in advance are you meeting with Constance to do the final "walk through" at the River House?

    Good for you! I am sure you will be so happy on your wedding day in the "right" dress :)

    I am way jealous that your dress is in, I am still waiting on mine!

    Thanks! YAY! I think so!!:) 

    When/Where did you get your dress?  When did they say it's due in.  With your wedding about 4 months away, I would imagine that is must be due in soon! It will probably be so exciting when it does come in! What is your dress like? Have fun these last few months of planning!!:)

    I actually bought my dress at a sample sale so I got it right away and stored it at my friend's apartment for months.  I went to Martha Shump in San Marco for a first fitting last month and am going for another on March 5...the last will be a few weeks before the wedding.

    We are excited and also just ready for the wedding day to be here! Working on lots of DIY projects...I spent hours tying ribbons to the bubbles for our send-off and FH has been designing escort, table cards, programs and drink flags!

    I'm not sure about the walk-through...I think you do it in the month leading up to? I'll have to check the contract, it's at home :)

    I got antsy and called the dress shop the other day, they said it should be end by the end of March ( the original time line was sometime between Feb and March). But I want it now! lol

    Its a maggie sottero, adorae. I just LOVE it, I would wear it around my house if I could!

    Hope the rest of your planning goes well!

    Oh my gosh....LOVE LOVE LOVE that dress....that was one of my top three dresses that I tried on!  I ultimately wanted to go with a different style of dress, but I think that is gorgeous! I don't blame you!  I would want to wear it all of the time.  I feel pretty similarly about the dress I ended up with (Mori Lee 1612).  It's a totally different style and feel than the Adorae, but I honestly just want to wear it around all of the time, too! Love them both in their own way!!

    I'm glad that it will be in soon! You'll have so much fun trying it on again! 


    I hope that the rest of your planning goes well, too!!

    Lou - that's great! So glad to hear that the plans are coming along!  I bet the fittings will be a lot of fun!!! Are you going by yourself or bringing anyone else with you?


    Yeah, I think a month is standard for Constance.  Unfortunately I am going to be in Florida at the end of March and then 1 week before the wedding.  Constance said it would be better to come in March, but I am pretty nervous that it's so far out from the wedding.  Wish I could do it closer to the wedding!
