How did you find your wedding dress?  I knew pretty much the style I wanted.  I wanted a halter style and I found this one pretty early in the process. 


Was it love at first sight? It was and it wasn't. I loved it, but I wasn't sure.  I was so worried about making the wrong choice.  Shortly after trying on the dress, I went looking at engagement rings (no real ring until 5 months later), and when I put my hand up to look at the ring, it was this ring I saw in my mind.  Tears came to my eyes and I knew this was MY dress. 


Who was with me: My best friend was with me.  I didn't put any money down on the dress until I tried it on and showed both my daughters.

THE RECEPTION photo 18


 


How did you find your wedding dress?  My sister told me about a bridal boutique that had just opened by where she lives...I wasn't really sure what I was looking for, I was hoping to know when finding the dress haha! I just knew I wanted something classic. We drove by and it was closed (Sunday) but I was able to see the dresses by peeking through the window and there I saw it!


 


Was it love at first sight? YES!! The dress stood out from the others when I peeked through the window, I had to go back to the store...I tried it on and loved it!


 


Who was with me: My sister :)

How did you find your wedding dress?? At David's Bridal


Was it love at first sight?? No! I had originally found another dress that I fell in love with and the price went up on it. I had to go three times, put on a veil and not have on a bra for me to love my dress. Lol!


Who was with you when you found your dress?? The first go round, DH, the dress I wore for my wedding, just me!

How did you find your wedding dress?


Emailed and called about 30 salons before someone sold me the sample.


Was it love at first sight?


Yes, I tried on a bunch of dresses at ML in SF with my girlfriends and when I put this one on everyone was like "that has to be your dress". I already owned a dress (or two) so I had to sell those and find my dress.


Who was with you when you found your dress?


One of my bridesmaids and a favorite friend/coworker.

How did you find your wedding dress?? I was going to the bridal salon with FI's aunt and cousin to find a dress to order a replica of. When I walked in the consultant heard what I said and she wound up bringing TOTALLY different from what I asked for! I was angry, until I put them on. PERFECT! When I put on my dress, it was gorgeous. I had never felt so beautiful and I instantly knew I wanted to get married in this dress. 

I didn't want to sacrifice the quality, and they gave me a sample discount of 63% off, so how could I say no?! 


Was it love at first sight?? For the most part. My final decision was between another dress that looked almost identical and my dress. In the end, the pleating in the rouching in my dress was much more flattering, and I didn't want to sacrifice the bling.


Who was with you when you found your dress?? Fi's aunt and cousin.

How did you find your wedding dress?? We were at the last Bridal salon in my area during our wedding gown shopping weekend, and my consultant brought me tons of dresses that fit my criteria. She was amazing at finding the right dresses to try on.


Was it love at first sight?? Almost but it didn't happen right away. I didn't want to take her off, I tried on a few more, then tried her back on again and knew she was the one!


Who was with you when you found your dress?? Mom, Gma, Sister, MIL, SIL, and my 2 gf's.

How did you find your wedding dress?? I was at a boutique one of the designers for Allure dresses was there! She was helping my consultant and at the very end pulled out one last dress for me to try on!


Was it love at first sight?? I don't think so. Honestly, dresses are made to look good on us (for the most part, right?) and I really loved all of the dresses I tried on. But it was sort of a feeling like in the back of my head, like this one!!


Who was with you when you found your dress?? My mom, sister, niece, and FI's mom.

How did you find your wedding dress?? It was the 3rd time trying on dresses (the second one was spur of the moment though, we went to look at bridesmaid dresses and my bridesmaid convinced me to try some on) We went to this bridal salon about an hour away that was really nice. I got my own consultant and a private room. you could change into a robe which was nice and I got to choose gowns and she also pulled some. Kind of like an affordable Kleinfeld's. BUT, I did not buy MY dress there. I searched and searched and a couple months later found it online - preownedweddingdresses.com. It was through a bridal salon and almost 50% cheaper.


Was it love at first sight??  It was not love at first sight. I loved it but wasn't quite sure. FI had mentioned he was envisioning me in a more fitted gown to show off my body (not in a showy way but he likes to see my curves) so I was trying to please him with that but I just wasn't comfortable in those. I tried my dress on and my best friend started crying and she doesn't cry at anything. It was about the 8th dress I tried on that day. I continued to try a few but found I kept comparing the other dresses to that one. So then my bridesmaid piped up that I had picked my dress but hadn't realized it.


Who was with you when you found your dress?? My best friend and bridesmaid.


Here she is (before alterations and hoop skirt)

How did you find your wedding dress?? Killing time at a christian bookstore that had a bridal salon attached to it. They were going out of business and all the dresses we 199.00 .... i was not engaged yet :).


Was it love at first sight??  YES! I knew for a long time the dress i wanted. When i tried it on i suddenly knew i wanted to marry my husband and it was going to be in THIS dress. So exciting!


Who was with you when you found your dress?? One of my bridesmaids and my dad. He is more of a fashionista than my mom. It ended up being perfect because he loved it immediately and bought it for me. He passed away from cancer so putting that dress on, on my wedding day was so special because he got to see me in it first!

How did you find your wedding dress?? I was browsing wedding magazines before I was even engaged.. and I saw it and immediately knew it was the one!! I loved every single thing about it!! I thought since it was in a magazine that all those dresses were probably crazy expensive and that it wouldn't look as good on me since the model was super skinny and tall, but...


Was it love at first sight?? YES!!!! As soon as I stepped into it and it was laced up, I knew it was the one!! I loved it!


Who was with you when you found your dress?? Just me and my mom. It was very special that way. I showed it to my BMs and FMIL then months later when we went to get their dresses :)
