It has been quite a journey but I think I have found my dress and wanted to share my excitement!! It was totally not what I was looking for but I tried it on for the first time for my cousin over Christmas out of state and loved it. I got home and kept looking around to make sure that was it... but I went and tried it on again last weekend and knew I had found my dress! Now I just need to figure out where to order it... the bridal salon 2 hours away from my house or Lee Philip Bridals who will ship it to me AND save me $260!

I don't have any pics of me in it yet
and it looks much better in person than it does on the model... it flows much better in real life.

But anyway I will stop rambling now... here is my dress!!! Pronovias "Haiti"

Love, love, love the bodice. This one just screams elegant, classic, couture. Congratulations on avoiding the "boobage stuffed in a strapless sweetheart" fad.

I think that it''s stunning! I love it! If you think that you need alterations maybe get it in the place nearest to you and see will they throw it in for free-that''s what I did.

From one Pronovias bride to another, congratulations!!! That gown is stunning! They didn''t have that one as a sample where I bought mine, or I would have tried it on!

So sorry ladies!... we have been having computer issues and now I''m using my dinosaur desktop from 2000!! You don''t realize how fast your computer is until you use a 9 year old one.....

Thank you ALL for your lovely compliments, I love having other people to be excited with so I don''t feel like I am driving my BMs crazy! Sadly I won''t have pictures of me in it until mine comes in
as the store would not allow me to take pictures AND the sales associate would not leave the dressing room!! But as soon as I get them they will be here!

Violet - I am getting it in Ivory, I have super pale skin so that seems to be my best bet!

purrpect - lol! honestly I don''t have much in the "boobage" department so that and the length are the only alterations I will need. My uncle actually commented on it while I was trying it on - it was sticking way out b/c I didn''t fill it and he said ummmmm please tell me they will fix that, otherwise everyone will be going in for hugs in October!

bee* - great idea! I will have to call them tomorrow!!

Lanie - yay Pronovias!... which one did you choose?

Gwen - FI and I adore Eddie... we are writing him to invite him to the wedding lol, the only problem is that his makeup would probably look better than mine!

I love this dress!
In fact, I kinda want to go find a salon that sells it near me just to try it on. It is fantastic, and I cannot wait to see it when it comes in!

I''m way late to this but wanted to say I LOVE IT!!!


I may be a bit biased since my dress looks very similar... mine is La Sposa "faro". Do you have any ideas for accessories/shoes?? I''d love to hear your ideas!
