I got my dress :]
Things that did not happen from my dress shopping experience.
1. I did not burst into tears.
2. My mother did not burst into tears.
3. My best friends did not burst into tears.
In fact, there was just a lot of “tsk-tsk-tsking”, head tilting, a lot of “OMG is that your/my belly?!”‘s and pure exhaustion on my part after hauling around those heavy-ass things and sucking in my bulging tummy for hours. After four of these trips I decided I had had enough and resorted to shopping via google images.
Whoever said you’d know immediately after donning your dress because you’d be filled with a sense of “the one” (and everyone around you would burst into tears), LIED. Also whoever said dress shopping was the best part of the whole wedding process also lied. By the end of my experience, I came to the conclusion that all white dresses look exactly the same and I don’t look good in white dresses. I briefly entertained the idea of a black wedding dress but didn’t want fifty asian ladies keeling over in horror as I pranced down the aisle.
I ended up liking a Liancarlo dress but the money sucking vultures at marina morrison did not have it in stock and offered oh-so-generously to have it shipped to me to try on for a “mere” $150 bucks. no tyvm. Although I suppose if you’re paying over 3k for a dress $150 should be nothing. In any case I did not think it was worth it so I did the riskiest thing I've ever done in my life and sent a picture of it to Milly's Bridal in China to mke without ever trying it on.The dress came out to $320 so I decided to risk it.
It came. And I lovee it :]. And now we will live happily ever after, the dress and I :]

fitted and i added a layer of crino to make it

GREEN?!?! Who doesn’t like green. Seriously. Green is the color of money. Everyone likes money. Therefore everyone likes green. This is perfectly sound logic. So green it is. Except I wasn’t quite over my original idea of a stuffy pink and brown wedding so I just threw that into the mix as well. Hey. its my our wedding, I can make it look like rainbow vomit if I want to.
