After going to numerous stores and trying on what was prolly too many dresses. I went to David's Bridal with my future mr. and one of my sisters. I had a particular dress in mind that I DEFINITELY had to try on and brought a picture and style number with me along with my runner ups. My numba one dress is below:
I was given dresses to try on but noticed that my numba one was not one of them and I was distressed. I asked the woman helping me about it and she informed me that she had in fact given me the dress. My sister could see it in my face that I was stressed and upset and asked me what the matter was while changing out of yet another dress. After I told her about my numba one being missing she asked the salesperson about it. She was "confused" but when I showed her the picture again, she said , "oh yeah, we don't have that dress in here yet." I asked why didn't she tell me in the first place and I received no answer. The store manager came over and said the same thing to me and I replied that I wanted to know if they knew when they were getting it or if there was another store who had it. I was met with one i don't know followed up by another one. I later learned that the sales person kept asking my future mr. about what I was looking for in a dress, etc instead of asking me! WTH?! Boo!!
I left with nothing. I received a call from David's Bridal about a week later telling me that got my numba one in and if i wanted to try it on. Of course I did!! i made another appointment for that saturday morning and brought just my future mr. with me.
I picked out 2 additional dresses besides my numba one (which I was so glad to see they really did have this time!!) I got a different sales lady who actually spoke to me instead of the people around me as well!! things were looking up!! =D
I tried on my numba one first and I was instantly happier with the way the dress looked on me. I reluctantly tried on the other two but they paled in comparison. I bought my numba one that day!! here is a pic of me in it.
I went and picked it up yesterday already!! Thank goodness I was recently away on vacation and gained some weight and can't fit in the dress or I would have put it on and never taken it off, lol!!
That's my story of how I found my dress. I didn't have that "moment" that most brides have where they knew they had "the one". I just had a moment when I knew my numba one pick was the one for me!!
