    Kate that dress is stunning!! I love it. I guess as lawyers even we can be proven wrong. hehe. I don't blame you for being obsessed, it's gorgeous. I would want to buy it right then and there and then try it on every second I got to be alone. Remember the episode of friends when they all try on the wedding dresses? Monica is like washing dishes in the wedding dress. That's what I would be like.

      Thanks! I'm loving the lace element - and the dress has enough structure to make it look like I have a waist. We'll see though. It's a new style so I don't have to worry about it being discontinued before I decide.

      And yes, if I got it I would be wearing it as we speak. I would have gone to Costco in it earlier too.

          Seiously, nothing like buying tampons in bulk and eating a $1.50 hotdog in a new wedding dress.

            Kate - the one thing I had the most angst/obsession/craziness over was dress shopping. So don't worry, it's normal.

            Also, speaking of Costco...I have a confession. One day before I got married I wore my wedding band to Costco! It's just that the lights are SO bright there and they make diamonds look SO good I just had to do it. I came home and confessed to hubby though...I couldn't keep my mouth shut! He just laughed at me.

              That is hysterical! That is so something I would do. Except with my luck I would lose it and then I would have a disaster on my hands.

              Kate, if at all possible see if they will let you take pictures in the dress. I was totally unsure so I had my mom take pics of me in the three dresses I liked, and once I saw myself without the pressures of the bridal shop I wound up deciding on a dress that I never thought I would get based on what I looked like in the pictures. I thought to myself, when I get my pics back I want to feel good about it and feel timeless. My advice, think about what you want to be able to look back on and feel like on that day.
              ps. that dress is beautiful, I am sure you will look beautiful in anything you pick.
              oh and being preoccupied by the dress and wedding details is normal-it better be or all of us are abnormal!!!

                I second Christine's recommendation of sneaking some pics if you can!

                Anyway I just wanted to re-state that you should NEVER under any circumstanc es try on a dress you cannot afford - not matter how much you are not expecting to like it. I was literally just goofing around when I tried on my dress... and well - there are enough posts up about my dress buying fiasco...

                FYI In the end I bought it anyway!
