I Said Yes to my dress!!!! I am so relieved and grateful that I found my dress. I went Saturday with 3 people to try on dresses and felt the pressure to get this dress that was absolutely gorgeous and fit perfect on me but I didn't feel it was THE ONE! I said yes and immediately regretted my choice. Put a deposit on the dress and just felt like I made the wrong decision. I called the shop back Monday and asked if I could come back to try it on and see if there is another dress that I will LOVE! So I went last night and I tried my original dress (a ball gown) back on and felt NOTHING. Then I tried on this gorgeous beaded, fitted dress with an organza ruffled skirt and fell in LOVE! 

Advice to anyone that is indecisive like me...DON'T take an entourage or just take maybe one person. Don't let anyone tell you that "This is your dress". You have to know what you like and what you can see yourself walking down the aisle to. Take your time and don't rush. Shop around, take pics and then make a decision. Pictures really helped me envision my dress. 

I attached a pic of my dress!

    This is all good advice. I'm glad you found one that you love!

    Congrats! I agree, pictures were invaluable for me when I was trying to decide. How you think you look in a dress can often be VERY different from how you photograph in it.

    Thank you! Yes, they let me transfer it over and my dress was $100 less than the original dress.

    That is great, lots of places wouldn't do that for you. Make sure you stop looking at other dresses though!
  • Congratulations!  I'm so pleased that you found something you loved and the salon was accommodating.

    They were so nice and helpful.  They wanted to make sure I found the right dress. I certainly will not look at other dresses.
