Perhaps the third time truly is the charm, as I found the one at Elegant Lace Bridal the third bridal shop I visited. It's Watters WTOO in Style Alberta. So light, so airy, so...me!

The dress is ivory with a fawn grosgain band around the middle. I just love, love, love the flower detailing; the photos I found just don't do it justice. I knew when I started dress hunting that a) I wanted something light and b) I wanted delicate flowers. It turned out a lot of dresses with flower detailing seemed to be out of the budget I had allotted for my dress (Melissa Sweet gowns starting at $3,000 for instance). Thankfully, the manager at Elegant Lace Bridal pulled out this lovely for me and when I put it on, I knew I didn't want to take it off. It didn't break the bank either: $700, with the rush delivery fee waived because my bridesmaids got their dresses there too. I'm having cups and a slip put in, and the bottom hemmed for my shortness.

The Second Dress

And because our wedding will have a Chinese banquet reception, I decided to honor my family's culture by getting a qipao (cheongsam) to wear later in the evening. Here are some photos of it. I need to get it altered in the bust some...my bosom just doesn't fill it out!
