Not The Dress

5:16:00 PM

I could barely believe that I found my wedding gown with only one appointment, and only tried on a total of 5 dresses. It was such a magical day, spent with my mom and my younger sister, Alyssa. I felt so blessed to have had that experience with them, and that they really let me be the one to make the final decision.

Here are some of the dresses that I tried on before saying "Yes" to my dress.

Dress No. 1

Dress No. 2
My mom loved this dress! And I have to tell you, if it weren't for this dress, I would have never came across my dress.

Dress No. 3
I actually really loved this dress, but it just didn't give me that feeling of being a bride, but none the less a gorgeous dress!

 Dress No. 4

Dress No. 4 : Back

I won't show you dress number 5 just yet, since that one is the dress that I will be wearing down the aisle. I have to keep some things a mystery until the wedding day. I just thank my mom and my sister for making my experience finding a wedding dress so special and so much easier than I could have ever imagined. It's hard to believe that it has been almost over a year since I ordered my gown and that my fittings will be starting within the next month. I am so excited that everything is coming together now and that we are getting closer and closer to the BIG DAY!

How many dresses did you try on before choosing your wedding dress? Did you go with a large or small support group? If you could go back and do it again, would you change anything?

  1. i actually only tried on a couple too. i ended up with 2 wedding dresses though! i got too excited that one was only $160 and i settled. after it had been altered i realized it wasn't "the" dress and went back to buy a different i still paid less than $500 altogether though and that's my justification!!! haha

  2. Awww man hahah I wanted to see THE DRESS!! :-) I tried on quite a few dresses. It was hard for me to get a picture of how it would look on me since all the dresses were not petite friendly. I am kinda second guessing the dress I picked. Maybe once it comes in and I see it my size I will feel excited about it again. :-)

  3. I wish I found my dress in 5 tries! I tried on 25 before I could make my mind up. 25 dresses and 3 bridal salons!
