So I tried on dresses for the FIRST TIME EVER this Saturday! My future MIL was in town so she and 2 of my bridesmaids came with me to a random store I goggled 30 minutes before we set out. There just happened to be a trunk show going on and the designer said she loved me in the dress! I'm still doing running of the brides in April and hope I can find one for less than the listed $2800.
I found a similar dress at David's Bridal and am checking it out this weekend!
Adele Couture Gown on the model (I look better in it but I'm holding out on sharing the pic of me in the dress)
