Here are more shots of my Nelson gown that my Mom took! The veil and the back photos are the money shots for me! This gown fit me like a glove, I couldn’t believe it.

Also - while this gown may not be as “out there” as the ones I posted about previously, I did try on some unconventional gowns but nothing made me feel as beautiful as this one did. The crazier/louder gowns I didn’t like as much against my tattoos (way too much going on, IMO). This gown is everything I could want and more - also, fun fact, the mermaid silhouette was a favorite of mine from the very beginning! If I didn’t try this one on, it would have been a major regret.

    Thanks so much, Lynnie!! I was so surprised that this ended up being my gown - I didn’t think I was going to be one of those brides that left with something completely different than what she was looking for, but oh well, lol! The Gigi was the second favorite and my Mom really liked that one, but she said that my reaction to the Nelson and my face/smile helped her realize that that was my better favorite. I almost didn’t go to this trunk show but once I saw the Nelson in the sneak peeks from the salon, I KNEW that I had to try it on!! I think I love it because it has similar features to one of my top HP favorites, the Markle gown! It’s similar because they both have that fabric overlay on the skirt... I always loved that look because it was so feminine and adds a lot of dimension to the skirt with some unique design. I can’t wait to see photos of my gown on the beach! 😍😍😍

    Thank you so much! Yes, it’s Hayley Paige’s “Nelson” gown! It was an underdog choice but it ended up being the right one! Once I had it on, I just knew it!

    Thank you so much! I am so happy with it! Definitely not what I thought I’d pick in the end, but I guess that’s pretty common! 😂🤣 there’s just something about the way it fits and the skirt at the bottom... I couldn’t pass it up!

    Yes, it was! I think it was real when I put on the very first dress, too because it was one I had seen in many photos and to finally see the quality and detailing in person as well as on ME and not a model felt really surreal! And then when I put on my gown, I was so shocked at how much I loved it because when I saw photos of it I was like, “There’s something about that one, I hope it looks good on me!” It felt like it was meant to be... very strange!!
