The Final Dress! (Finally!)

Here are the pics of me in it:
And here's a funny story. I went to the only bridal salon here that carries Pronovias, telling them when I made the appointment that my wedding was two months out and I would have to buy off the rack if I bought anything from them. So anyway, I was trying on some sample sale dresses, and saw a picture of a dress I thought was pretty. So I asked the salesperson only "Do you have that dress?" I had expressed to her that I didn't want to spend $5K on a second dress, so I probably didn't want to fall in love with something expensive. Well, so the saleslady leaves to check if they have that dress, and she comes back to the room (with a few other brides and families all standing around) and is talking to a lady who says, "Well, I'm not going to let her try that dress on! Beggars can't be choosers!"
Holy cow. And this girl sitting on the couch looks at me and says, "Was she talking about YOU?" and I was P-I-double S-E-D. My mom asked what was said and when I told her, she almost lost it. So anyway, this second lady (the "beggars" lady) comes up to me and says only, "I need to know your budget." I say, "Money is not a concern. I just want to find a dress." She says, "Well, tell me what you want to spend." I repeated that it didn't matter. I then said, "I've worked in customer service for 15 years, and let me say, you probably shouldn't have said "beggars can't be choosers" in front of me." She said, "Well, you don't know me and you don't know how I meant it." That was her apology. When she left, the saleslady apologized PROFUSELY, and even patted me on my back, and told me "but she's the OWNER." I knew then I would not be buying a dress from them. When I was leaving, I asked a third saleslady, "Oh, do you have THAT dress?" and pointed to another poster. It was a Demetrios I had been hearing about. She said, "No, I sold the last one last week." I said, "Oh, too bad, I just wanted to look at it." She then said, "Oh, well. I do have one back here in the back. But you can't touch it." ! Ha.
Needless to say, I was like, "Peace out, homies."
Anyway, that was my funny dress shopping story.
Hope you girls are having a good day.

Second of all - holy sh!t! What a bitch saleslady... and wait, she was the OWNER?? Haha, that's amazing. Not that I'm comparing you to a prostitute (lol, nice way to start a sentence!) but do you feel a little like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman?!

Courtney, thanks for being so sweet about the dress...and I don't have to alter it at all! I am just lucky to be general sample size (although I would be luckier to be too skinny for samples, but then I'd be without a dress!).
It's a little fancy and nighttime-ish for a daytime beach wedding, but it is nonrefundable so there you go.
