Hey everyone,
Well...on saturday I went to about five stores and tried on a bunch of gowns. At the first store I tried on a watters and watters bridesmaids gown that I actually loved and it was really affordable since it was a bridesmaids gown. I went to other stores and really nothing all that great jumped out at me. Some things looked nice, but overall I didn''t see anything I loved.

I went back today to the first store and ordered the watters and watters gown. It''s a completely different style than I originally was going for, but it looks great on me and I feel really pretty in it. It''s also more appropriate for our ever increasing guest list and the groomsmen who decided on tuxes instead of suits. My old sleek gown in going on ebay sometime soon, cross your fingers I don''t loose too much money on it.

Here''s the pics!!! The dress size was huge on me, so you''ll have to picture it a bit smaller. I will post more pics in may or june when I get the actual gown. The color is a medium ivory and I love the fabric. It''s very luxurious for a bridesmaid gown, feels very bridal. The fabric is much nicer than my old gown.


yayers!!!

Thanks firegoddess! It wasn''t at all what I originally intended, but I kept coming back to that one and I felt really pretty in it.

Thanks Jackie! It is sort of regal and yet simple at the same time. I wanted something more formal than my previous gown, but I still didn''t want something huge or extremely ornate.

Thanks bee! It feels really good to finally make a decision, and I don''t have any guilt about being a multiple dress bride. I think it was the right decision and it will make the wedding day more fun to be in a dress I feel really good about.

I was thinking about putting some lace around my waist instead of the ribbon, what do you think? Would this look good?

I can''t believe it is a bridesmaid''s dress,man they are making them more and more formal, aren''t they!

Well, I think your choice is extremely elegant, and I love the back, you look fantastic!

I was thinking the same thing. What kind of bride would actually want their bridesmaids wearing something this formal and in the color ivory? I think it''s *very* formal for a wedding. Also, the fabric on this particular dress was thicker than on most bridesmaid dresses, very bridal feeling.

Thanks curly! I definitely wanted something elegant, but a little bit more spruced up than my last dress. I never thought I''d wear a puffy gown, but I love it!
