    After much anticipation ... my dress is in!!!!

    Like most brides I was starting to second guess my decision... and was worried I would become a multi-dress bride. I had not tried the dress on in my size, so I had no clue how it would fit. I also ordered it in a petite - but had not tried on a MS petite, so wasn't sure what the length would be like.

    But its absolutely perfect!!!! The corset back makes it fit like a glove and the petite falls just perfectly so it won't need to be hemmed at all. I will just need to add a bustle.

    While trying it on at the salon, I also found the perfect veil. It is sheer and one layer with crystals all over the back. No picture of it yet... but it should be in in 2 months.

    Here are the pics from the day we picked it up. As always, please ignore my yucky hair... the wrinkles... and the tags.

    The front:

    The back (the illusion train helped sell me on the dress... will be perfect for the beach):

    I originally found the dress at a local store. But after calling it around found it for $200 cheaper at Mestads in Rochester, MN. (their price was even cheaper than online retailers like bestbridalprices.com). They were super quick at emailing me back thoughout the whole process. I had wonderful service the day I went in to be measured and order the dress.

    The day we went and picked up the dress, the service was only so-so. They gave me the dress and put me in a room and then completely dissapeared for like a half hour. My mom had to come tie it up. Then we (mom, grandma and I) went and found the big mirror and sat admiring it for a while. No one was around. I wanted to try on some veils while I had the dress on, so my mom and grandma went and started grabbing them. After like the 3rd trip up to the front, a lady finally noticed and came and checked in on us. Then she wouldn't leave and was pretty pushy with veils and jewelry. We found a veil I loved and my grandma stated she wanted to buy it in full like 12 times and the lady completley ignored her. She also wasn't too happy when I announced I was taking the dress home with me and having alterations done elsewhere. Oh well though. ICan't beat the price... and I LOVE my dress. : )

      It really is beautiful on you. Hooray for petite sizes!!! My dress (provided I still love it when I go to order it) is shorter in front, so I won't need hemming either. Woohoo!

      I want to see the veil!!
