Wedding Dress Shopping Today!! (By myself!)
Posted 08 July 2009 - 10:55 AM
So today's the day! I am leaving at 3:30 for an "appointment" and going to RK Bridal and then David's Bridal.
I'm sort of excited, but SUPER nervous!

I went to RK & David's a while back but I need to go again. I was a little disappointed when I went to RK b/c the sort of straight/sheath style I wanted just didn't look right on me & the consultant told me that I was looking for the wrong dress style (hips are too big I guess). I appreciated her honesty but it made me a little depressed. I was also in a bit of sticker shock at RK & I think the combo sort of turned me off looking for a while. We did find some dresses that looked good & weren't ridiculously priced so I just need to get over it & get out there again.

So yes, I'm back (sorry so long to post, work backed up while I was out). I tried on about 50 dresses, including the Dessy Sandals dresses, which were awful on me. At the end of the day it was between two dresses, one of which was the one I fell in love with a few weeks ago.
In the end I ended up following my gut and getting this dress, even thought it was $500 more expensive
Sorry its sooo fuzzy. I forgot a camera and was left with just my Blackberry. Here it is from the website:
Also got a veil while I was there (overpriced I know, but 12 months same as cash makes it like free for 11 months!) it is like the one below, but all white everywhere!

Thanks for the encouragement - it's been about 4 months since I tried anything on so it's probably time I get back out there. Though I did order a dress I saw online at Nordstrom & it'd be great if if works out (apparently none of the stores w/in 100 miles of nyc carry it).
