July 2013 Weddings

I just bought my dress!

Hi All,
This is my first post here, but I think it's about time I join the community :)

I am so excited!  I am getting married July 13, 2013 (hopefully, waiting for vendor confirmation).  I got engaged on June 2nd of this year, but for some odd reason, the planning has fallen together so quickly and easily.  We set a budget and have been able to keep to it, thus far.  We've figured out a venue, a catering company we would like, invites (found on sale at Micheal's), some of our decor, and we're sketching out a guest list. 

I looked at dresses just for fun 2 weeks after I got engaged.  I found one I liked and went back to look at it yesterday, as well as a random one I sort of liked from the catalogue.  Low and behold, the "random" one was my dress.  I put it on and I just lit up when I saw myself.  I didn't believe in finding "the one" like that.  I didn't think it would be special for me.  I have been uncomfortable in my body for a long time.  Uncomfortable with my weight and shape.  I have been through some difficult health problems, and although I'm only 25, I often feel inadequate when compared to my peers.  When I put on this dress, it made me feel beautiful.  It was amazing.

I was so nervous to committ this early, but I got a good deal.  $100 off at David's Bridal because I didn't want the train on the dress and I bought it right at the end of the sale.  My bridesmaids weren't available to be there, so I brought one of my finace's friends to approve, and he was helpful.  I went a little over my $400 budget for my dress, but it was a little low, anyways.  I couldn't be happier with my choice! 

As everyone says, this picture doesn't do it justice, but this is the one:

Anyways, hello to everyone, and thanks for letting me share my happy news!

  • Welcome! And congrats. :) I ordered my dress from Lightinthebox.com, but also tried on dresses at DB in case it came and I hated it. The dress you bought ended up being the one I liked best and would have bought if I didn't end up LOVING the dress I ordered online. It was so pretty and light feeling when I had it on, I didn't want to take it off. I still have it in mind if my seamstress messes up majorly and ruins my dress. :) 
  • Congrats on the check.. Beautiful dress..

    Congratulations!! I'm a date twin AND I just got this check at DB too!  I tried on that or a very similar dress and loved it.  It just didn't fit the look I was going for otherwise we probably would be dress twins too!

    Hehe  I definitely feel the same about getting the dress shopping done so early too.  The one I picked was being sold as is so I didn't even have the chance to digest all the feelings like I might have if I had to order it.
