I cant believe i found THE dress!

So in my excitment the other day, i made my first post asking about dress consignment shops in the SWFL area. I had made an appointment with David's Bridal (despite hearing both good and bad reviews about the place) assuming they would have the largest selection, in the most sizes (since im a plus size) and price ranges. My goal was to go in try stuff on, and narrow down style and color, and then shop around for cheaper alternatives as i am on a super tight budget.


Friday came and my consultation was a lot of fun! I took my mother, one of my best friends and my mothers godmother. I tried on about 8 or 9 dresses. All of which pretty much fit me (surprise number one!) i was expecting this to be diffcult time for me. what i didnt expect was that we all fell in love with dress number one. (although i'll admit i wasnt wow'ed with it, till i tried on all the other dresses for comparison.) and needless to say they have a payment plan and walked out of the store with a dress!! The dress fits me like a glove! and the only alteration it needs (unless i loose a lot of weight between now and the wedding is hemming... im a little scared now thinking i should have bought it bigger?) Now i need shoes, and hair accesories. I have a veil... not sure its THE veil but for now i have this one. so now pics!

How many of you bought the first dress you tried on? I'm a little nervous that i was impulsive? but i do love it!! how do i keep myself from second guessing myself?

You look beautiful. Finding the perfect dress for you is the most difficult. If you love it then i say it's probably the right one for you. Others may suggest trying on others at different places and see if you still like the original dress.

Kittywolf you look AMAZING!!! I love that dress on you!


Most brides have second thougths adout the dress but I think it's normal considering it is THE wedding dress.


I fell in love with my dress before I even got to try it, just by seeing a pic online so...


But from what I hear a large percentage of brides gets the first dress the try on.

That dress is GORGEOUS on you!! 


Like Leni said, it's pretty normal to second guess yourself! I've been married 8 months and I still dresses that I'm like "gahhh! I want it!" I loooved my dress, but the truth is, there are just too many amazing dresses out there! Haha. Just go in with no regrets :) And it sounds like you love it, and it looks amazing, that's a win win!

Congrats on finding THE ONE!!!! You look gorgeous in your dress!!


When I went trying on dresses (I found online at David's that I fell in love with), the first dress I tried on, I absolutely fell head over heels in love with.  The poor sales lady at David's tried so hard to have me try others on, thinking that I might have dress regret, so I agreed and tried on 3 or 4 others, and they just didn't do anything for me. She asked if I wanted to try the first one on again and I knew as soon as I put it back on that that was the dress for me.

thanks so much everyone!!! I'm so happy that everyone thinks i loook beautiful in it! :D i've had a real rough time with this wedding planning, and i really wanted something special for my gown. im very sensitive about my appearence and weight.... so i was very hesitant to go dress shopping. (i always feel so unshaply in most clothes) so im trying really hard to appreciate myself more! so the compliments totally help. :)

Before choosing the style of your dress, you need to know what suits you first. Without doubt, the style is the mood of her dress, but you have to look good and feel good about that too. Of course it is really a great challenge for brides with large size figure to find wedding dress plus size, beauty and comfort to achieve.Plus Size Strapless Tulle Ball Gown

As is known to us, the mantle, a fine style, formfitting which closely follows the line of the body. These dresses are more flattering for women who are slimmer in the hip area.  it help hide their short comings.Plus Size Prom Dresses
