After about 3 months of trying on dresses, I found my dress and veil today! I love my Mori Lee Go...
I'm a firm believer that things happen for a reason...and once again this has proven true. Since the moment I saw this dress online I couldn't get it outta my mind. I HAD to find it...and I did!!!
Soooooooooooooo after a crazy long search....on Saturday my FMIL and I went to check out the Black & White Maggie Sottero dress that I fell in love with online. Unfortunately they only had the sample in all Diamond White but I was happy to see the silhouette at least.
Soooooooo we get to the store and the Bridal Attendant pulls the dress out from the racks and at first I'm like...uh oh...just made an hr and a 1/2 drive for nothing....but I figured I've come ALL this way, may as well try it on. We also pulled like 5 other dresses to try on just in case.
We get in the dressing room which is freaking HUGE!!!! and I decide to try on the dress that I came for first...As I'm pulling the dress up I'm starting to get a lil grin. The minute I get the dress on, inner corset laced every other one and zipped up...I took one look in the mirror and I knew....THIS WAS MY DRESS!!!!!!!!! I HAD FINALLY FOUND IT =) On came the giddiness, the butterflies...the whole 9!!! =)
I was grinning from ear to ear!!! My FMIL gasped and so did the Bridal Attendant. I didn't want to get out of the dress. =) Mind you we had to use some imagination because the dress sample was all white and I want the black and white one. But I truly believe it can only get better w/ the black detailing. At the moment the dress is a lil...blah...but with the black lacing...it gives it a world of personality that fits right in line with mine =) I love being original and myself and am glad that I was able to find a gown that can express that =)
I immediately called my mom and she was psyched!!! So the next day she came down to the store with me to see it in person. She LOVED it!!! She completely agrees it's the best of the best and she thinks it's perfect for me =) I even convinced her to try it on and she looked stunning in it =) Now I forever have the memory of my Mommy in my wedding gown the night I found THE ONE! =)
We decided to leave that shop and try the Bridal Salon closer to our house to see if they could order that style. Turns out they can and for almost $400 cheaper than the far away store =) My mom also wanted to order a dress from them so they said they would contact the manufacturer and get back to us on monday to see if it was possible. Well, they called today and they can order her dress and mine for a PHAT deal!!!!
So not only did we both get an amazing price...but we both found our dream dresses at the same store =) And better yet...as we were leaving my mom said to me...I'm sooooooooooo happy you finally found your dress...and I was waiting for this moment to tell you...that I wanna buy the dress for you. 0_0 I about fell over & died!!!! I started hugging and kissing her in the middle of the parking lot saying THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!! I never expected this especially since we're paying for the wedding ourselves. My fiance and I had a long talk the night before about how we were gonna afford this dress cuz it wasn't going to be cheap. So this was definitely a blessing (as well as the phat deal we got).
We have an appointment in 3 weeks to get our measurements taken and order the dresses. I can't wait! This is going to be sooooooooooo awesome. I can't wait to see what the dress looks like in Black & White. But for now, feel free to enjoy the pix of the All Diamond White version of this gorgeous gown. =)
YAY...I'm officially a Maggie Bride!!!! =) Now time to get cracking and lose 20 lbs!!!!!!! Anyone in SoCal looking for a fitness partner?!? Please hit me up!!! =)
