Same thing happened to me. I never guessed I'd ever wear anything strapless...and that's what I got too! I also swore I'd never buy my dress from David's Bridal....which I did as well. It just goes to show, you really don't know until you try different kinds of styles. I thought I wanted a flowy dress too...and when I put them on, it looked like a nightgown on me. I needed the structure. LOVE the new choice....congrats!

So I figured while I'm there, let me try some different styles to see if there's anything I might like, and me, who swore I didn't want anything strapless, or anything "foofy", fell in LOVE with this:
Like seriously, was dreaming about it all that night! And they had it, off the rack, in my size and in ivory, which matches his linen suit PERFECTLY! You can't help but think it was meant to be =) The plan is to take in the top ever so slightly, shorten the length a bit (for sandals/barefoot in the sand), and shorten or just totally remove the train (it's partially tucked under in the photo).
