    I had envisioned wearing an A-Line gown with a lace bodice & straps.... I actually got to try on the exact dress I had on my Pinterest board, and honestly hated it lol

    I ended up with a strapless ballgown by Essence of Australia. I totally had that moment where I instantly fell in love the second I put this dress on. It fit perfectly, was flattering to my figure, still had a lace bodice, the material was so incredibly soft, and it flowed gorgeously as I walked/moved around. I did not cry, but I definitely could not stop smiling! I just felt so incredibly happy. I still loved my dress just as much on my wedding day. It was surprisingly easy to move around and dance in (with the help of a bustle after the ceremony) and it photographed so well! I'm still in love with my dress and I am so so so glad I was open minded when it came to trying on different dress styles, or else I may not have ever found "the one". (My only dress regret was wearing the ribbon tie it came with; it was so hard to get a nice looking bow out of it, I wish I had found a thin sparkly belt instead. Oh well).

    In regards to my dress finding experience... it was PERFECTION! I went to a plus-size friendly boutique, Della Curva, in Los Angeles, where we had the entire boutique to ourselves for my 2 hour appointment. I had my mom, sister (my maid of honor), and my best friend of 15 years with me. We had such a great time laughing at the hideous dresses I tried on and "awwww'ing" at the beautiful ones I tried on. When I said "Yes to the Dress", the shop owner pumped up the music and we all danced around (including her) yelping "omg" and "yay"! I'll never forget the day I found my dress. It was everything I dreamed of and more!

    Here’s mine! I’m so in love with it. I originally wanted a long sleeve a line dress, but ended up with this one. I’m thinking of adding some type of topper or something as the wedding is in November, but I’m not too sure yet. Its so perfect. 😍

    Your dress is beautiful! I had the same thought with mermaid style. The fit and flare style gives a soft look to your bridal dress. Are you wearing a veil?

    I went dress shopping a total of three times- the first with a coworker who got engaged shortly before I did, the second with a close friend and the third by myself. I bought the dress on the left thinking it was what I wanted and TBH just really ready to be done shopping and then suffered a month of dress regret. I went to s store that sells sample and consignments hoping not to fall in love with something better... and then I found the dress on the right. 4 months later I’m still in love with it and can’t wait until June!
    Dont be like me- you can always go home and think on it and try it on again!

    I got my dress before my FH and I even picked a date, I fell in love and it was tax free so I couldn't pass it up! My mom, grandma, and close cousin were with me and I'm so glad they got to be there! Now trying to choose between the short and long veil

    Definitely not what I wanted. It is poofy, has ruffles and is strapless (all things I didn’t want). I knew I would hate it, but wanted to try it for fun.

    I went three times, first with just my sister, then with just my mom (my sister was supposed to come, but was sick) and then the last time, where I had to make my decision as I can’t make decisions without ample time to overthink everything, lol. I tried it at my last appointment for the heck of it and ended up loving it.

    You made the right decision! You will know if that is your dress, and I must say, the dress on the right IS YOUR DRESS! It looks fabulous on you!

    I finally chose my dress this past Saturday. I was looking for a boho, long sleeve lace dress. But every sleeve dress I tried on was not flattering. I ended up choosing this dress! It has a lace bodice and a tulle skirt, still giving off a boho vibe! I’m going to be adding straps to it as well. Also it is a grey/latte color and I loved that! I knew it was the one when I kept comparing others to it and every time I wore it, I got teary eyed.

    This is my dress and it is totally not what I thought I would end up with. Ended up not liking the dress I thought I would love. My mom saw this on the hanger when a consultant brought it over and immediately said it was my dress! I took my mom and two of my bridesmaids.

    I am planning on wearing a veil and wearing my hair curled and to the side. Still in search of a hair person, I seem to be having the hardest time with hair and makeup and my wedding is not that far away!
