Over 14 months away. We have decided to go the route of "let's plan this thing as early as possible so we can be less stressed later and be on the lookout for good deals." So far we've picked a date, our venue, and I've picked my bridal party. T already knows who he wants for his groomsmen, but just hasn't got around to ask them yet. I went dress
So off the David's Bridal the MoB and MoH and I went. Let's face it, unless I want a quinceanera dress, I have no other choice in my hometown. Ironically, they didn't have a few dresses in my size. They had the size smaller or 3 sizes larger. weird I tried on dress 1. Exactly what I was looking for except a size too small so the back looked a little funky. Not bad but not perfect. Dress 2 was not it at all. Too froo-froo. Dresses 3 and 4 were immediately vetoed. One, according to my loving mother, made my hips too big. The other was a beautiful dress but was too "cupcakey" for me. Then there was dress 5. Beautiful, full of lace, but according to my mother "too old fashion." While I loved the dress, all the lace and beading made it super heavy. It was flattering but MoB thought it was too low cut in the front. Wouldn't want to offend any of the older folk.... or Jesus. I then went back to dress one. I tried on the too large size this time and the back looked a ton better. MoB couldn't get over it and was very vocal about her liking of this dress. I liked it too. Then out came the consultant with The Veil. Oh, The Veil. You have a crazy way of making a simple white dress turn into The Dress. It was beautiful. I felt like a bride. I really felt like T would cry if he saw me in this dress.
MoB was near tears.
And that my friends, is how I bought my wedding dress 14 months before the wedding.
