@kcole123 Hopefully you are making progress with your dress shopping. I just got my dress last weekend after feeling very frustrated as well. I ended up with a sweetheart lace dress by Allure (Allure Ascher if you google it). 

 

The one think I would say is to remember that alterations can do wonderful things to really make the dress fit YOU perfectly. It is such a long process but once you find the one, you will know (just like your FI  ;) ).

 

GL and keep us posted!

HI @nina1116

Thank you. I am looking for a sweetheart lace. Well see what it looks like on me I guess. But that's the kind I like. Would you mind posting a picture of your dress? I would love to see it?

@tygrrlily,

 

One of the dresses that I love is Casablanca 1975. I don't know how to post a picture of it. The other dress is a custom-made, couture dress so unless I purchase it, we can't take photos of it.... which makes it difficult to decide!

 

That is a gorgeous dress! It that "the dress"?

 

I agree, the consultants really do make a difference!

@pddcmc - The Casablanca 1975 is gorgeous - love the dip in the back! I'm dying to see the other one - custom made, couture sounds amazing already :)

 

I was really respectful of the no camera thing (even though I hate that rule), but toward the end I have to admit we snuck some pics. It's SO hard to decide otherwise, and I needed to see how the dresses photographed.

 

Yes it's the dress! I bought a sample dress so it's already in my closet! :)

 

I'm now veil, shoe and accessory shopping

Well Ladies,

I found my dress. I ordered it yesterday at The Bridal House in Edmonton. Of course the sample dress I tried on is a little big in the bust and it's really long. So keep that in mind. I can't wait to get my dress now and get it altered to fit me perfectly.


Oh and I am looking for a different belt. That is just one they had in the store something similar to what I am looking for. I just wanted to have something on because I knew I wanted a belt anyway.

I love the Casablanca 1975! I keep going back and forth from a lace dress to a more fitting silk sweetheart dress. I guess ill just have to try them both on next month when i go dress shopping :)

 

I to moved far away from home recently and have no one to dress shop with out here- plus dress shops in the panhandle of texas aren't the greatest. But i'm flying back home (FL) so much this year (3 of my bridesmaids are getting married within the same year!) that i'm taking advantage of the frequent trips back home and doing my dress shopping while i'm there for their showers/bachlorette parties and weddings.
