    I have to say, Im a tad bit excited. But not excited to squeeze into this little to small strapless bra I have from last year. (Ive gained a bit of weight) Its those ones that are corset like, but snap in the back. Are from your boobs down to your waist. I guess thats motivation eh? LOL

    Ill be back with a full review. We are hitting up 3 bridal salons :)

      Good luck with all that! I wasn't even excited to try on dresses but it turned out to be so fun!
      Can't wait to hear how it goes!

        Have fun! Take pictures if you can!

        The stores should have bras and slips for you to try on if yours is uncomfortable or doesn't look right under the dress.

          I had sooo much fun!!!! And am pretty sure I found the one, at the most wonderful bridal salon ever :)

          We went to 4 different places. The first one they were pretty pushy and I feel in love with a Maggie dress. The second place we went they treated me like a princess, literally. And I put on a Jasmine greek goddess like dress, and it fit me like a glove, and covered all the right places. I looked beautiful. In my budget to! And the consulatant kept talking about this one similar to it but couldnt find it. So I asked if she could look one more time, and she found it. She brought it over to me and I looked at it and said, its okay, but Ill try it on still. I dont think Ill like it better than this one though....and I tried it on, came out of the dressing room and my friends mouth dropped. I than stepped up on the step thingy, and something happened I didnt think would. Tears. I got emotional! Than my friend started to cry to. I said I LOVE this dress!!!!! Of course its double my orginal budget, but at the maximum I am willing to spend.

          We went to two more salons after that. The one they gave us a dressing room and never came back, which annoyed me. But I did find a dress in there that is second best. But its discontinued. So Id have to make a quick move. But it is 50% off which is my maxiumum spending limit.

          The last place I found another dress that is third, but as I look at the pictures Im not really feeling it anymore. We didnt have any help from anyone in this salon either. This place had the best prices though. I did find a $300 dress that I really liked, but I think it was the price talking to me.

          We got pictures from the last two places since we were pretty much on our own. Shall I share even though some were a definte no? I know how everyone loves pics :)

                Okay I have 9 different dresses :) Let me say that lots of them were to small, and I have some work to do in regards to my body. Just had to say that.

                First the nays.

                This sort of mermaid style dress I LOVED the 50's feel to it. But my body is so not made for this style!

                This was cute, but I didnt love it. I liked the sash part a lot.

                    This one was gorgeous, but a little to traditional for me.

                    I really like this pink one when I look at it in the pictures, but when I tried it on it felt to barbish to me. lol
