Found the dress 🎉🍾👰🏻

So today I went dress shopping properly for the first time... I've been to one shop to try a couple a few months ago and tried on some at wedding fairs but today was the big day!

Shop 1, dress 1 (and not my choice but one my family picked out) .... WINNER 😲 We carried on all day but kept comparing back to that one so at end of the day called up and paid deposit arghhhh 

Im a bit nervous as it was beautiful but was nothing like I THOUGHT I wanted... I've looked back at pics 700 times though and it was 100% the best! So scary though, did everyone get that  feeling? I'm naturally super indecisive so to choose one was crazy lol think it's just knowing there's so many thousands of dresses out there you could never see and try them all lol xx

    Yes me completely different dress to what I'd imagined but when it went on I just knew!

    congrates on finding your dress! i was the same! Imagined myself in a Grecian style dress... ended up with a ball gown! I only tried my dress on to keep my mum quiet but fell in love! 

    i think it's quite normal to go for something quite different. Until you actually try them you don't know what it will look like on YOU! 

    congrates again 

  • Lol yeah I only tr mine on to keep the family quiet 😂 Then looked in mirror and was like ohhhhhhH haha XD I think that's why I'm so nervous about my decision because no one will expect me to wear a dress like that and it wasn't what I thought I wanted... glad to hear you both had the same thoughts! on the plus side I woke up this morning and was just like yay I've got my dress, not ooooo did I make the right decision lol xx

  • Thank you both- thought I hated satin and was looking mostly at Lace and tulle numbers but seems satin suits me XD So excited now!!! X

    Stunning dress, What colour is it?


  • Ahhh so reassuring... What dress did you opt for MrsTelf2b?

    Got to say after a couple of days to rest on my decision I am just excited absolutely no regrets on a quick decision so feeling great :d Just really excited now...

    MrsS85 I THINK I tried on the Ivory gown so will be getting that one (sue she said all their dresses were in Ivory but I need to double check as it seemed very white lol), they're closed today so they said they'll send paperwork and ts and cs etc with ordering details to me in post tomorrow... she measured me when I tried it on and the sample was near enough the right size anyway so that was good! 

    Ooooo i want to try it on again, I must have looked at the pics 100000 times already and have banned the fiance from touching my phone now ahah x

  • Ooooo yes that is stunning :) congratulations on finding it! I tried on one very similar and loved it (it had subtle sparkly bits all over too which caught the light amazingly!) but it was a corset back and even after 10 minutes I was starting to get uncomfortable despite the shape it gave me so I went for my first dress that was so so comfortable as well as beautiful =] 

    WOW three weeks... yeah thats just long haha, three shops in one day was enough to turn my head to mush! x

    Ah congratulations it really is beautiful, I asked re the colour as the one in the photo looked a tinge of gold/coffee. Ivory will be lovely and you are right it is quite white.


  • Oh yeah it does I though that and worried haha... Ivory is very white and I checked its definitely Ivory they're ordering, we are just deciding on which size to order now... i'm waiting to confirm the size of the sample as that was only a little bit too small and I've lost 5 stone... 2 more to go to target so think that would probably be about right, It's hard to decide though!
