    Okay so according to my thread last weekend..I didn't have a great first experience dress shopping. So I had an appointment today at a different place and I went by myself and it was great!!! I actually didn't feel anti-wedding like the last time. I didn't feel too fat (although I wasn't feeling skinny) and I actually liked about 5 of the 8 or 9 dresses I tried on!!!

    I am not however ready to pick one yet. although I really liked the style of the dresses today, they were more than I thought I would pay for a dress. They were all between $500 and $1,000 which really isn't alot, but I kept telling myself that I wouldn't pay more than $500 for a dress! So I still want to check out david's bridal and there is one other reputable bridal store around here.

    I'm actually excited now!

    Here are the pics...

    Looking at them now, I felt I looked better in the mirror than the pictures. I think the angle isn't that great either!!!

    This is the Maggie Dress that Jen showed me and I loved in the picture so I had to try it on...although it looks much better on the model I do like it on me. It's always hard to see the back while in it..so after seeing the picture..it might not be that flattering w/ my hips??

    This one, I am pretty sure is the exact same dress my friend just wore in her wedding earlier this month! I didn't know until I had it on...I like it though, but I can't get it because it's hers!

    I believe this is the other Maggie I tried on but I don't know what style. This was the $1,000 one though! I didn't take a pic of the back because it too was a corset back and I'm sure it looked the same as the other!

    This is a St. Patrick?? I am not sure about this one...I honestly can't remember it already! I think I liked it because the material was very light which would be good in the heat!

    Now this one...is cheap ($570) and it has that same light material and I really liked it! I am bummed though because it was a size 6 and I am not so it didn't zip or anything and so I couldn't get pics of the back!!! It is a Pronovia??

      Michelle---- I think the first one looks beautiful on you! And I think it really gives you an hourglass shape in the best way (ie: hips/boobs proportionate, etc...).... love the corset back too---- I dont' know, it just is really flattering on you and there wasn't anything that was like, "well <this> is great but this..." It just looks great everywhere. :)

            Michelle, I'm so glad you went today and felt better about it. I really like the first one and the last one (though you look great in all of them!).

                Michelle, I"m so glad you had a good experience and I love the first one and the third one I think it was.
                I went dress shopping last week and found a dress that I LOVE but it is 950.00 and like you I wanted to spend more like <700.00 so I have an appointment today and than another one next week at other bridal salons but If I cant find anything I love as much than screw it I will get the 950.00 dress.
                You look beautiful in them all though :)

                  I think you look great! I especially like the first one. It looks great on you! It def has the hourglass figure look in the BEST way. It is very sexy, but not over the top - wonderful!

                    I really liked the first and second on you, although all looked really great. The first one, as has already been mentioned, really shows off your figure well. So glad you enjoyed it this time.

                      Michelle, I love the first two dresses on you. Both are actually really similar to the two dresses I am torn between. I'm glad you had a better experience the second time.
