So excited, I flew home last weekend to go shopping with my MOH and my family. We went to a small bridal shop that my MOH found, and it was really nice. It was personal attention (we had made an appointment ahead of time), and I tried on about 20+ dresses. They had some samples that they were selling 60% off, i picked a few to try on but wasn't thinking I would actually like any of them. I actually wanted a lace fitted, but not mermaid style, dress.
I actually ended up going with one of the samples, and it's not lace at all. It's Maggie Sotero's Debbie, and I absolutely love it. We are having a beach wedding, and it's a tad big, so there will be quite a bit of altering required. I'm going to take a lot of the crinoline out of the bottom of it so it's not so poofy, and then cut most of the train off. I'll leave a little bit, but not much. I don't have a pic, sorry
