I had set in my mind that I would do the following:
1) NOT go to David's Bridal
2) Go to at least 2 Bridal Shops
3) Spend the minimal as possible
4) Try on numerous dresses
Well yea I am sure we all have a list of dos and dont when it comes to our Wedding Dress. I did pretty good 1 out of 4 isn't bad, right? hahaha!
I had a moment THE moment when I tried on my dress, because I knew that it was THE one.
On a Thursday evening Oct 2008 I went with my mom to Mariella's Creations (an amazing shop) and told the consultant that was assigned to me that I would like to spend no more than $2,000 veil and all.
After trying on oh say 10 dress. I know I know! I was sweating like crazy. Trying on dresses is honestly hard work.
I walked out that night with an Ivory Lace Strapless dress and an Ivory Mantilla Veil! Breathe taking!!!
Marisa Style 504
Minus the train ( I am anti-train since I want my veil to be my train) I think I might do either a permanent bustle or use the extra lace to wrap around my bouquet and use around the Mr's boutonniere and also I think I may want a sweat-heart rather than straight across front.
What do you think?
1ST & 2ND Fitting done What do you think so far??
I am anti poofy...So as you can tell see removed everything in excess from under my dress and she had to completly refit my dress around my waist....Amazing work. Note these photos where done during my first fitting. My second fitting I didnt take any photos I was to busy being in awe of the dress.

Girl, I feel your pain when it came to trying on dresses. I tried on at least 13 dresses before I came across mine and I always felt bad because like you, I would be sweaty and tired after trying them all on! Love the dress btw. And I would change it to a sweetheart, that's what I did. I suggest all brides to do that actually. Straight across makes everyone's shoulders look wider, and a sweetheart neckline gives a little more movement and shape.
