    It literally sounds like my dream dress! And so perfect for the Disney theme! Smiley heart Where are you going to be storing it for safe keeping (and away from your FS's eyes!)?

    For now I'm keeping it at my mom's house; it's really convenient because she's got lots of space and it's close to the store where I bought it and I plan to get the alterations done there too. It fits beautifully, though, I don't think I'm even gonna need a hem. Just a bustle and I want to add some sleeves.

    It's definitely super helpful to try on dresses in person to figure out what you like and what you don't like before ordering a dress online! So exciting that you were able to find one! What style dress is it?

    I think I tried on 5 or 6. I said yes to the second dress I tried on though!

    I tried on 7-10 dresses before I found "The One" and it felt amazing when I put it on. I cannot wait to build up my wedding vision with shoes, jewelry, veil, etc.

    I tried about 6 dresses and went with the very first one I tried on!
    I'm not a huge fan of shopping in store so I was not going to visit multiple bridal stores.

    I probably tried on 25 dresses? I don't know. I didn't want a traditional dress and being plus sized made it extra hard. I finally ended up keeping one I ordered online from Tadashi Shoji.

    I did get my dress at renaissance. It wasnt something I would have chosen myself but I knew it was the one when I started crying. It has lace on the top and at the bottom hem. The skirt is tulle. There are modern attributes with cutouts under the arms
