    I am growing ever-more frusterating with my wedding gown search!! I have tried on so many dresses; every style from ballgown to mermaid to sheath to A-line and all in between... I cannot find anything that I am 'in love' with!

    Everyone talks about finding 'the one' but I am concerned that I will never find it!!

    I have tried on things that were okay; they would work, but nothing felt perfect.

    Now I am considering going the non-traditional route to see if I can find something I like that is maybe classified as an evening gown or something...
    I wouldn't mind doing color.. but FMIL keeps saying that her son should get a bride in white. (This is my 2nd marraige and I think that bothers her!) Fh really doesn't care what color I wear.

    I found this dress online and want to go try it on; I am almost afraid that I will love it and then FMIL will freak.

    So, I guess I am just freaking out a bit .. Thanks for listening girls!!!

      I ended up buying a dress that "would work" and had the same feeling - I wanted something I would love. So...I took it to a seamstress along with an inspiration picture (of a dress that was way out of my price range) and we are changing it up! She says doing this is almost half of her business. I am adding lace and changing the straps, etc.

      What I did like about the one I bought (the cut, the back, and the basic style) was enough to turn it into my dream dress :) If you have an idea of what you like or a "dream" dress picture, get a dress that is similar in fit, shape, style and have it altered. My dress plus all the alterations are only $500 total. Now I love, love, love it!

        fmil should mind her own business, it's your dress. you need to be the one who loves your dress and your fi will love what you love, right? Get what you want.

          That dress is really pretty! I love it! I looked at all kinds of boutiques in Houston for "the dress" and I ended up buying mine for $400 at David's Bridal. It's perfect. Here is the style number if you want to take a look. Style 9T9389.

                  Get whatever dress YOU like and tell FMIL to stuff it.

                    don't get discouraged! i was feeling so bummed during my dress hunt, & i tried on soo many dresses (over 60!).

                    you will know when you find the one. & when you do, you can't take anyone else's feelings into account!

                    good luck with the hunt.

                      Screw what the FMIL thinks this is your wedding and if that is the dress then that is the dress...just an FYI there are a few brands that have that or a similar style in white (Morgan & Co., OC by Oleg Cassini, Niteline, Adrianna Papell Evenings, Nightway, Niki, and Faviana) Hope this helps
