Hello Ladies and Welcome fellow 2012 Brides! 

 

Our day went very very well.  A few glitches in that my make-up lady ran 1/2 hour late so 2 of us were not able to get our make-up done.  So, I decided that those that lived far away will get there make-up done and they looked great.  I was a little disappointed as I wanted to try wedding dresses on looking sharp but hey Life Happens.

 

1st appointment was great as we were the first persons in the store.  They knew the dress I wanted since they ordered it in for me(Romona Keveza) as it was traveling with the trunk shows.  Boy oy boy I was in love... and was ready to purchase this but was quickly reminded out the 2:30 appointment that we had. ;-( 

 

From there we picked up my future daughter aka step daughter (I don't like calling children step).  From there we went to try on the BM dresses (ButterByNadia) and they were so happy..we occupied the owners time along with her Mother-in-law for about 1 1/2 hr which resulted in a 20% discount.  SWEETwoot.gif

 

After this 2 persons had to leave us (1BM had to work and Ms. Ellen my make-up lady had a wedding to do). 

 

We went to Houlihann's in NJ for a quick bit and drink and made it t our 2nd appt at 2:40.  For all of my PA, NJ, NY, DE brides you may want to check out Bridal Gardens and ask for MaryEllen she is freaking amazing to say the least.  We were taken as soon as we got in the door, and she greeted all of my bridesmaids, pulled in extra chairs and immediately started in on My vision and concept. I'm very specific but she brought dresses besides the ones that I wanted to try on that were DYNAMIC.  In addition, she was willing to match the price of the store that I visited earlier... so it pays to write the name of the previous stores that you visited.  THEY Paid attention to that!!

 

We spent about 2 hours there...and I have 2 top number 1's.  One of the one's that I picked prior to going in which is a Lazaro dress and the other MaryEllen brought out for me which is a Pronovias.  My MOH and BM took sneak pictures every time that she walked out of the room which was great but the quality isn't the best since it was done in a rush...anyway the Lazaro trunk show is in July so I will go back then to get 20%off...  and meet the designer himself.  Love it.

 

After that we headed to Bonefish Grill in Deptford which is always great. There we headed back to my house to go through some inspiration photos and to go over  the day while we drank cocktails. 

 

I'm beyond excited as I will go back and purchase "The One" in July.  The best part about it all, was that my future daughter shed the first tears which then had me tearing up. 

 

So to end this post..We have found our dresses!!!! 

 

Have a great rest of your weekend.

That is awesome Coco congrats!  :)  I am so happy for you!  Isn't it funny how you go into your dress fittings with a specific idea of what you'll want, and it may not always be the one you end up with.  I am *trying* to go in with an open mind because i have NO idea what will look good on me and I know what i like, but i am not sure it will like me.
