    Alright! So I'll start from the beginning. We have a minimal budget w/ a new baby and trying to get a new house. When we first started I thought "Oh, I can do w/ a cheap simple dress it'll be fine" I thought I'd just go to David's Bridal during their sale. Well, my mom lives on the otherside of the country and isn't able to help alot in the planning process.

    Well, my mom came to visit last May cause i had just given birth to her granddaughter. I thought maybe we could go dress shopping, that could be something we could do together.

    My MOH (lil sis) and FSIL came w/ us as well. Now, my mom looks at a dress on a mannequin (sp?) and it's the dress. The dress on the mannequin is a size 2 I am not a size 2 and it doesn't look like that on me! My sis goes with the crowd, and FSIL doesn't like lace or beading, must show cleavage and lots of skin! So in the end I bought the dress we all liked cause it was the only one we liked, even though it wasn't my fav. I felt like I needed to buy the dress while my mom was w/ me. And really I didn't feel like any of the dresses I tried on were THE dress.

    I've been battling this for a while, cause I have VERY MINIMAL budget if I'm to get a new one. Well, I did it!!!! And I'm so very excited!

    Here is the dress i first bought:


    And here is the new dress!!!!

    Once I have it I will definitely post pics of me. I told myself I wouldn't be a girl w/ multiple dresses, but once you start thinking about it and THE dress you just can't stop thinking about it until you have it!

            LOL!!! I know! When i first started looking I kept for looking for dresses that my mom, sis, and FSIL would like. Then i went for what i wanted. WHO CARES WHAT THEY THINK!!! It's my day! (That's the bridezilla in me!) My mom is going be upset, she REALLY liked the 1st dress. I brought up to her the other day that I was thinking about a new one and she was kinda bummed. I'm emailing the pick to her right now.

            We'll see what she says!

              How come you can't incorporate both dresses into the wedding? They both look beautiful- nice job!

              LOL, sounds like you were in the same situation I was! I refused to look at more expensive dresses or dresses that didn't fit a certain style (one that my mother/FI wanted me to have). And I bought it... and I ended up LOATHING it and buying a whole new one!!
              For the record, I LOVE your second dress! It's really beautiful!!! What about wearing the first one for a TTD or something? Or slipping into that one later on in the evening for dancing?

                I could incorporate both, I just don't care for the first dress. When I put it on I don't have the feeling of i'm getting married. And, it's sheath and I'm very short so sheath makes a really short person look really frumpy.
