        Hey ladies!

         

        I have been MIA lately as I was in Ontario for a week to visit family and wedding dress shop.  AAANNNNDDD.....I bought my dress!!!  EEEEK!  I was home for 8 days, and went to about 10 shops...trying on about 40 dresses.  And I ended up buying my dress on my last day there, when we went to Buffalo for the day.  I got it at David's Bridal!

         

        When we first got there I didn't think I would end up getting anything from them, as I fell in love with a Maggie at one of the stores and was going to have a replica made.  But then my dress just found me!  Hurray!

         

        What a relief to have that done and over with.  I bought of the rack and it may need alterations in a couple of months after I lose a bit more weight, so I think I will call that chickie that someone mentioned earlier.  The dress is a zip back, but I am thinking of putting a corset in it (as a corset does WONDERS for my bod)....does anybody have any idea how much that would cost?

         

        Hope all you guys are well!

                ok ladies...i need some opinions from my calgary gals. 

                 

                thank you for all the good wishes, but i am going to be honest - i am already having dress regret.  right before i bought the david's bridal dress, i tried on a maggie sottero that i LOVED.  it is too much money (and too close to the wedding) to order one - but until i tried on the DB dress, i had decided that i was going to get a replica of the Maggie.  whenever i look at the picture of me in the Maggie, i swoon!  i feel like the Maggie is more ME.

                 

                what do i do?  do i get the Maggie replica, and if i love it, i sell the DB dress?  or do i suck it up and just wear the DB dress since i already have it?  HELP ME!!

                 

                first up is me in the Maggie, and the second is me in the DB.

                  Hey Pam I already saw your DB dress on the dress thread, and really liked it! I really like you in both dresses so ultimately it is whatever will make you feel like a million bucks on the day of. If I had to choose though I would go with the DB, a replica and so close to the wedding, I would just be scared, it might not look like the real thing. Sorry if I am just adding stress here.. yikes. I think regardless which way you go you are going to be one stunning bride!

                    Hey Pam

                     

                    I agree with Boo, you have to get the dress that you love and take into consideration the timeline.  I personally love the DB dress, I think you look HOT in it!!  But go with your gut and make sure whichever dress you choose you won't be thinking of the other.

                     

                    Good luck, let us know how it goes

                      I agree with Boo and Linds... both dresses look great on you so it comes down to which one you cant live without. 

                       

                      It sounds like you really want the Maggie though... If you have the room in your budget, maybe order the replica dress and decide once you have both dresses in front of you?  Then you have the DB dress on hand in case you dont like the way the replica turned out.
