    Hello ladies!
    I am so excited that I may have found my dress and I wanted to share it with you all!!!
    It's actually kind of funny because I went dress shopping about 4 months ago with my MOH, and found this dress. It was a little more expensive than I wanted to spend though, but we took a photo of it on me with my camera phone. This past weekend, we went shopping again, to 3 different stores. At 2 out of the 3, the dress found it's way to me again!!! lol.
    At the 2nd store we went to, I found it on the rack, tried it on and loved it! (But I didn't realize it was the same dress I tried on 4 months ago, and had photos of). I got the lady to write down the # of the dress so I could come back with my mom. (And it was cheaper there than the first time I found it, which I didn't realize at the time because I didn't know it was the same dress). Then the 3rd store we went to last weekend, I walked in and the lady asked me what I was looking for. So once I told her she said, "Oh I think you'll like this one, it's beautiful" and pulled out the SAME DRESS!!! My MOH looked at me with a smile because she knew I just tried it on. It was even cheaper at this 3rd store too!
    So when we were leaving my MOH asked to see the picture of the dress we loved 4 months ago and she said, "OMG it's the same dress!" haha.
    Maybe it was meant to be?
    Here it is:
    Private Label by G Wedding Dresses at BestBridalPrices.com

    If I get it, I need to know what shoes to wear because they measure from hollow to hem (I think that's what it is) and have it made for me.
    Any advice on that? Do most of you girls go with flat shoes? Or something with a heel?

      Gorgeous Dress. I think I'd take that as a sign also. As for the shoes, I'm a heals girl personally, but I know there are a lot of girls wearing flats also. I really think that is a matter of personal preference.

        Wow! What a gorgeous dress....I can see why you kept going back to it! It's funny how the one keeps coming back to haunt you (in a good way).

        As far as shoes go...ANYTHING goes. A lot of girls on here opt for gorgeous heels in bright colors and some even decide to wear good ol' fashioned flip flops. Take a look at this thread http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t18087 and you'll find a whole bunch of options.

        Congrats on the dress!
        First Kiss as a Mr & Mrs!!!

          Very pretty & elegant. I think it's meant to be your dress since it comes finding you lol. I am going to wear flat shoes b/c I don't liek the idea of trying to walk in heels on the beach.

              That dress is so pretty! It's cute that you kept finding your way back to the same one. Congrats on finding it!

              As far as shoes go, I wore heels..mainly bc I'm short and my DH is tall, so every little inch helps me!

                You were stalked by a dress ! It is beautiful and you will look amazing in it! As for the shoes I am doing barefoot sandals for the wedding and flats for the reception. But it is really up to you and what you would feel most comfortable in. I decided on flats because I am going to get married barefoot and if I was going to wear heels at the reception, the dress would be too short or vice versa. But I say it just personal preference.

                  It is gorgeous! I would wear heels for the ceremony and then change into flats so you can dance the night away. That's what I plan on doing!

                      That's how I felt too! I figured the dress would be too short if I got it hemmed for flats, and then wore heels at the reception. Maybe I will just stick to flats.. I am more comfortable in flats, I'm not really a heel girl, BUT I do really LOVE the idea of having cute purple shoes under my dress, with a nice heel.... I guess I'll have to figure out what I would rather: Be comfortable, or have cute purple shoes under my dress!!! :P

                      Thank you all for the comments! I really do love the dress, and ever since I found it online, I can't stop staring at it. I pull it up all day at work and just admire it. LOL. I can't wait to show my mom!

                      Do you guys think it's ok for a destination wedding? It has lots of beading along the bottom, and all the way up the train
