Congrats and welcome!!
So nice to have the dress. Now the key I heard is stop looking to help stop any second guessing. But since you only tried on two I'm thinking you have that down pat! What kind of dress did you get?
Our wedding is November 2016 and I ended up going dress shopping just to try on silhouettes and see what works for me cause Im usually not a dressy girl. Found a gorgeous dress that I love, it was a little over my price range though and the store manager, not my consultant who was very nice, was very PUSHY which I did not like. Telling me if I wake up tomorrow it could be discontinued. She told me this a few times. I did not appreciate this and I'm just going to let it simmer for now. If the dress is still around by the end of the year I will try it on again(at a different store) or see what else is out there. Trying to have fun with this experience and not let anyone stress me out (cause I'm sure my family will be doing that enough! lol)
Very happy you had a little more luck with your shopping! Sometimes you just know when you put it on!
I went to David's Bridal and I had an awesome experience. The lady that assisted me was a young girl and she asked me what did I want and I told her I wanted something inexpensive, nice, and elegant because my wedding was a destination wedding. She let me pick what I liked. After trying on the 2 dresses and I chose the 2nd dress, she told me she never like picking for a bride because what she like they may not like, but if I tried on the dresses I chose and didn't like them, thats when she would have pulled some of her choice. I thought that was a good pitch. I felt good all around about this dress and I was able to pray and ring the bell after I chose it.
I went with the chiffon gown with ruffle detail and lace. I am into the long trains so my train is pretty long. I am not looking for another dress this will be the one.
@dwesle we got engaged June 2014, I bought my beautiful wedding dress in October 2014 and we're getting married January 2016
I wasn't expecting to say yes to the dress so early but a local bridal shop was having a sample sale and I thought it wouldn't hurt to go. I too didn't want to break the bank on my dress. I told the consultant it was my first fitting and had noticed which silhouette would work for me. As she was talking, one dress caught my eye and I immediately grabbed it and asked to try it on. Lo and behold, the first dress I tried on was the one! I tried on 4 more dresses afterwards with different silhouettes and textures but none compared to the first dress. So I tried it on again and happily said yes to the dress and at 30% off, that was the cherry on top!
To date I still love the dress and have not had any regrets. The hardest thing is maintaining the same size to save costs in alterations lol
I also got a good deal on my dress. This is around the time for prom, so the bridal shop I went too was offering a sale on dresses. I couldn't beat the price. The alterations are gonna cost me more than I paid for the dress. I had to go up 2 sizes because of my shape, so they have to fit the dress to my figure. I wear a size 10 dress, but I had to go up to a size 14 because of my shape, which sucked.
I will be taking my wedding party to shop for their dresses on April 11th, so I can still try the dress on again, which will be after alterations, to show them and this time I will be taking more pictures, so I can post.
