    Hi Ladies,

     I made an appointment at Macy's Bridal salon just to "look" with my mom and it ended up being a truck show, all the new dresses for 2011 were in and for 15% off. Lucky for me, the VP of the company was there and giving me extra special attention. He ended up giving me an extra 5% off (20% off my dress) and gave me all my alterations for half off! I am officially the "Bargain Bride"!!

     

    I'm going to be making some changes to the dress. The neckline will be more sweetheart and the ruffles in the back will sweep into the front of the dress. I'm also going to be added some embellishments to the dress that the seamstress said she will tack on for FREE. I live close to NYC so I'm going to make a day in the garment district and use my company account to buy the trims at wholesale.

      That is gorgeous!!!  And nothing wrong with a bargain bride, especially if you get everything you want!

        HERE is my dress!! I started looking for dresses in August and tried on 4 dresses at Davids Bridal.....this was my first time even looking at dresses.......i was looking for 4 specific things: Sweetheart neckline, mermaid, vintage looking lace, brings out all the right curves......and i found that in the first dress i tried on! i couldnt believe it. I didn't even go to the store with the intentions of liking anything nevermind falling inlove with it! Here are a few pics of the dress.....pictures do not do it justice!! I LOVE IT! '  and i need ZERO alterations! its like heaven lol

         

        The dress is by Oleg Cassini

                    Thanks Trista, I wanted something more "destination---y" which is charmeuse or chiffon, but they were all so PLAIN and simple and blah! Something that I would wear to someone elses wedding in a different color.

                     

                    Do you think this dress is "TOO MUCH" for a beach wedding? That's the only thing I'm afraid of... I guess in the end, it doesn't matter!
