This is by far the part I'm looking most forward to in the whole wedding planning process. I've always loved wedding dresses. I've still got pictures I ripped out of wedding magazine probably 12 years ago saved away in a file.
I was looking at Unbridaled, a local bridal shoppe's inventory online and found the most beautiful dress in the whole world. The shop mostly carries dresses for the non-traditional bride. This particular dress is part of Modern Trousseau's 2010 collection. It's called the Macey dress. I love love love it!
I'm going to try to go next week sometime to try it on. I can't wait! I also found out that MyDreamDress.com can make it for $245 and they're running a special for free shipping right now. I'm sure the actual dress costs close to $2000 so this may be my only option. I've still got to check the site out a bit more and make sure it's legit. Oh yeah, and try on the dress.
***This just in this morning: If I get the dress from the seamstress for $245 my Grandma is willing to pay for it. Sweet!!! I'm going to try it on on Thursday afternoon....hope it looks awesome!
