My local bridal salon had a sale going on 30-70% off all dresses from old stock. Well... I went in all "I want a sweetheart neckline, a full skirt (but not poofy) & lace!" I ended up with this:
I'm a small bust bride (we're talking B's here) and the embellishment & deep V actually is really flattering. Did I ever think I'd end up with a dress like this? Never. I thought that this style of dress wouldn't work with my hips, but it gives me a smokin' shape! It is sexy. I never wanted to look like a princess, I want to look hot. lol. Also straps? Eww.. I never thought I'd get a dress with staps & here I am. Sigh. You don't know until you try it!
My advice to other brides is to throw your ideas out the window & just be open minded. The first round of dress shopping I ended up not liking anything because I had an idea in my head of how I wanted to look... when in reality those looks didn't flatter me at all. This time I entered with an open mind & I found such a pretty dress. I love how simple & beautiful this gown is. I couldn't be happier! haha well I do have some work to do to get my body looking tight enough to show that much of my back & arms, but I'm motivated enough to get 'er done!
Here's the best part ladies... hold onto your hats. This floor sample model was discounted 60% off. AND they threw in the 12% taxes. SCORE!
Have you found your dress already? How many dresses did you try on before you found "the one"?
