Right after Joshua and I got engaged, my mom and I made an appointment at David's Bridal to try on dresses. :) On January 10th, 2011, she and I spent the afternoon dress shopping.
When we got there, the staff was so sweet and helpful. My consultant's name was Megan and she was so bubbly and fun! She listened to my rambling about how I was picky, but had no idea what I wanted all at the same time and just picked out things that she thought would work for my body type. She was awesome and not pushy at all, which made the experience easy and enjoyable.
Time for pictures!
|This was the very first wedding dress I tried on. It was a NO from the start. I loved the way it looked on the hanger, but the fabric was too shiny and the style was too drape-y for my body type.|
|This is the 2nd dress I tried on. I HATED it. I thought I'd love the fabric and the flouncy-ness, but the way it looked on me was just bad, bad, bad. This dress was OUT.|
|Dress 2 again. See? Way too much aimless fluff.|
|The adorable short train with ruffled flower details.|
|This was the fourth dress I tried on. I absolutely LOVED this dress. The fabric was gentler, the detailing had the lovely vintage feel I was going for, and the fit was just right for my big tatas and wide hips.|
|The gorgeous train. Unfortunately, this dress didn't make the cut for one reason. The price tag. This dress was about $300 over what my mom and I had budgeted for, so unfortunately, this beautiful dress was out.|
|Here I am trying on THE dress for the first time. :) I was immediately in love.|
|The back. Please ignore the black bra. ;)|
|Noticeably happier in this dress than the others. :)|
|Practicing sitting in the dress? Very important.|
|My mommy and I after I said "YES!" to the dress! :)|
Stay tuned for more wedding posts this week!
