Needless to say
Confession: I had to stop watching Say Yes to the Dress because it made me moody and panicky. This only happened when I was alone, mind you, but it happened enough times that it was noticeable. (Who else had marathon viewings? I know it can’t be just me.) In fact, one time I remember calling MOH Tart nearly in tears because I was terrified that I wouldn’t have “that”? moment. What if my mom didn’t care? What if I looked like I was wearing a curtain the entire time?
Needless to say, after about the third or fourth time this happened, Sparky not so subtly suggested I find another Netflix show.

I’ll jump ahead and let you know that I did have “that moment.”? It was complete with breath caught in my throat, happy tears from me,下载附件, Mama Campfire, and MOH Tart, and just general bliss. Getting there, however, required a lot of shopping and trying on dresses.
My runner up dress was Mori Lee 2105. It was a close thing and I’ll show you why:

Seriously, that dress made me look WAY smaller than I am. Talk about flattering. Granted, I was able to try it on in my size, but still. This was actually my second time trying it on. The first time was my first time out (and it was the first dress I put on).
The next closest runner up (so, third place?) was a Maggie Sottero dress: Karena Royale.

The next series of dresses I’m going to share will be without names. Since they weren’t even in the running, I have no idea what they are called. I am happy, however, to direct you to the bridal shop where I am in the photos if there are any dresses you like!
I think this is a Maggie Sottero as well. / Personal photo
I liked this dress, but the train was crazy-long and heavy.
This dress is a Cicada design. / Personal photo
I apologize for the blurry cell phone photo on this one. I liked this dress (and it was SO lightweight), but I didn’t love it. I did love the bridal salon, though. It’s called Cicada and they have their own designs AND they do custom work. I thought long and hard about a custom dress—I love my ring so much I thought it’d be neat to do it for my dress, too. I ended up finding a dress I loved, so the custom design wasn’t necessary.

This one was very lightweight as well. It was comfortable on, and I could have bought the correct size right off the hanger!
I liked the top of this one, but I thought the bottom looked like a curtain. / Personal photo
This was the only dress with straps that actually looked right on me. All the rest looked”?weird. This one was a custom design (I think from Cicada), but I’m not 100% certain. This one didn’t even make it into the running, though I thought it was worth taking a picture of.
I tried on what felt like a bajillion more dresses, but most of the salons I went to didn’t allow photos. As you can see from these photos, I tried on a lot of different styles. With the exception of the Mori Lee and the Karena Royale, I didn’t have any hesitation about dropping the dresses from the running. You’ll just have to trust me, however, when I say that none of these even compare to how great my actual dress is!
How many dresses did you try on to find “the one”?? Did you have “that”? moment?
