I Said "YES!!" to the Dress

Monday, March 11, 2013

I went wedding dress shopping on Mar 2. I went to a bridal shop that Brandon's step grandma works at. It was actually about a hour away from where I live. When I first got there I was kind of excited and kind of not because I feared that I would look/feel huge in every single dress. Bridal dresses are actually very flattering. From my internet search I noticed that I liked lace, a-line dresses, rouching (don't know if thats spelt right), and strapless. So, I tried on dresses there and I never really had an "OMG!!! I LOVE THIS!! I KNOW THIS IS MY DRESS!!" moment. I had a, "This is really pretty. I like this a lot." moment. So my consultant suggested that I try other stores just to be sure. So then we went to this street that has all bridal stuff in Cincinnati. Well, I knew what I wanted so when I would go to the store they would either say they didn't have that in my price range or they'd tell me to go look through the dresses. Didn't find any there. So then we went to David's bridal... that was actually the closet place to where I live. They had what I asked for but all I could see when I was in those dresses was my blashie (love handles, mommy pooch area). So I decided that I needed to go back to the first store to get my "This is pretty. I really like it a lot" dress lol. I went back to the store on Mar 8 and tried it back on I had my "Yeaaaaaa...this is my dress" moment lol. So I said "YES!!" to the dress and bought it. I didn't want to take it off! After buying my dress it seems like this is so much more real. I'm so excited and so ready for October to be here!!

    OMG, absolutely gorgeous!! You look like a MODEL! Nice choice! Your husband is going to be falling over on your big day! :-)

When is your wedding day? I'm getting married 10/18 this year, and just found my dress recently too! I had the same reaction as you, "I like it. It's pretty." Then tried on like 15 more dresses, and kept looking back at the pictures from the first dress, and realized that was the one! hehe.
