    So I officially cheated on my dress, and quite frankly, I’m happy I did.  Long story short I was watching an episode of SYTTD with my Fi and my dress happened to be featured (no he didn’t know).  He tends to freely voice his opinions about the dresses in the show and my dress was no exception… “That’s an interesting dress, but it doesn’t look suitable for a wedding.  If it wasn’t white you wouldn’t know it was a wedding dress”.  You know what, he was right.  While I love every detail of my dress and think it reflects my personality to a ‘T’ it never gave me a bridal feeling which is a pretty important factor to overlook.  And after having this conversation and trying my dress on again I knew I couldn’t were it on our wedding day.  Any-who, here’s dress #2, not sure about the veil or the sash, but the dress is a definite keeper…

            I check on this thread to see her first dress and it was posted on this thread back in February. Not sure the page.  It's very vintage looking and simple. Another beautiful dress, but I can see how she might feel more "bride-ish" in this second dress.

              Thanks for all the compliments ladies. I'm surprised I ended up with a lace dress. I love lace but often felt like a doily in wedding dresses that were lace from head-to-toe. I was actually done with my bridal appointment, left the store in disappointment, saw this dress on the mannequin in the window and went back in to try it on.  If you’re interested, there’s a pic of my original dress if you go to my profile

              No, I bought this dress today. I was considering Jasmines for my TTD dress, but now that I bought a second dress, the Jasmines TTD dress is on hold until I get my first dress sold. I considered Jasmines for a split second but since I’m picky with lace, I didn’t trust that they could find the fabric to replicate it; it’s a swiss dot tulle with lace embroidery.   And the price was right so I didn’t feel the need to gamble with Jasmines.

                I don't know what your first dress was but this one is beautiful. You have a great body and this definitely shows it off!! Absolutely gorgeous and you're glowing!

                  Hello ladies!! I need help. I tried on dressed for the first time yesterday. I really didn't expect to find a dress. I thought I would get an idea of what I liked and of how much weight I have to lose lol. But there was this one dress I really liked. Now I'm torn between trying on more dresses to see what else is out there or just buying that dress. Theres a trunk sale at the store this weekend so it makes it even more stressful for me. Help! I want to upload a pic but Im on my phone and don't know how to. :confused:

                    i say just go with the dress if you love it! so many people end up coming back to one of the first dresses that they found -- i guess it depends on how much you enjoy the whole trying-on-dresses process?

                      Yea it definelty depends on how much you enjoy the experience. But I would wait and go again, maybe try lots of different styles to see what style speaks to you. I bought something my first time out and ended up with major regret, because I quickly realized that I liked it, but I didn't love it. I say wait till you get that wow feeling, if you enjoy dressing up!
