Looking at dresses tonight!
Posted 07 December 2007 - 06:53 PM
So wish me luck that I see some that I like and want to go back and try on later, and wish me luck that I don't find any I just have to have tonight!

I have 2 appointments tomorrow to try dresses on - with the hopes that I find something in case I really do get married in May, as everyone tells me that isn't enough time to get a dress...so I'll wish us both luck . It is fun and then they put a veil on you and you realize - wow, I'm getting married?

Don't forget that when buying a dress it will look completely different on the rack than it will on your body - so don't not put on a dress you don't think looks good on the rack because on you it might look absolutely amazing! (I thought my dress was ugly on the rack but my mom talked me into trying it on and I absolutely fell in love with it once it was on me!)
You've got plenty of time before you need to decide though so don't stress - you'll find the perfect one in time

This one was two piece (skirt separate from the lace top) and even though the top didn't fit me and my girl there had to pin it shut with super strength pins for it to close over my boobs, this is the first dress I tried on that made me really feel like a bride. She also tied the sash up too high, but I did like this dress a lot. I about died when I saw the price though!
This next one I absolutely loved on (but hated it on the hanger -- what Melissa said about trying everything on even if you think it looks ugly on the rack is so true!) but couldnt get them out of the dressing room long enough while I was wearing it to get a photo, haha. It's a drop waist and made me look 15 pounds thinner! The boning in it was actually very comfortable --totally to my surprise. The only thing is that I'm having a church wedding and the dress is strapless, so to customize it to cover my shoulders would be like another $400! The price of this dress was even worse than the first. Totally out of my budget, but I felt great wearing it.
I have an appointment next Saturday at White Chicago, a place that sells new, sample and "once worn" designer gowns, so we will see how that goes. Totally glad I only took one friend with me on the first time out though. Some other girl there had an entourage of like 8 people and it was making ME nervous! By the way for those of you who haven't tried on gowns yet... the one hour appointment goes by incredibly fast! I think I only tried on a total of 4 gowns. OH! And Abbie don't get depressed about the size thing. I'm normally a small size 8 and they were bringing me 10s and 12s. My plan is to have my seamstress rip out the actual size tag and sew in one that I feel more comfortable with people seeing
