After about 3 months of trying on dresses, I found my dress and veil today! I love my Mori Lee Go...
I've found my dress! I had been shopping around and found a couple that I thought could be "the one" until I saw pictures of myself in them. Gag!
I gathered what I liked about all of the dresses I've seen so far and put it together. I found some online that were pretty much what I wanted, but I couldn't find them anywhere near me to try on. I finally stumbled upon Allure 8861.
It is simple. It has a corset back, so it makes my waist look great. The fabric is amazing. I am in love.
We went ahead and paid for it, but didn't order yet. My wedding is a year away (exactly a year from yesterday), so the store said it might be safer to wait a few months to order in case I lose or gain (NO!) weight. I'll be coaching volleyball in the fall, so I think she was right; I have ever intention of at least toning up a bit.
One of my bridesmaids is getting married a couple weeks before me (we had our date and were engaged LONG before she was) and my mom was concerned that I'd change my mind about my dress after going dress shopping with her. WRONG. We went to 4 different stores yesterday and I didn't see a single thing that I loved like I do my dress. I'm so ready for Ritchie to see it! Come on, June 8!
