I think I will have a wedding dress of my very own by the end of the weekend!! My mom is coming into town for the Wedding Show so I have done a little preliminary shopping in order to make our limited time more effective. This is what I have found! There are 4 dresses in the running. Three of them are samples (thank the Lord that I am sample size with just small small alterations)

I''ll try to attach some photos if the file sizes aren''t too big. I have one more dress appointment today!

This is by far the best part of wedding planning as of yet!

Here is the Alvina Valenta - the one that is not a sample. The pleats are not visible from the front when you are standing ( the model is all twisted) It is a fun surprise in the back.

Unfortunately, I can''t find any pictures of the other two. One is a gorgeous Reem Acra gown that has a tulle and beaded bodice overlay (it originally has thick straps, but I would make it strapless) - it has a big silk ball gown skirt with a really long train. I also weighs a ton. The other is an Amsale dress that is more ''old Hollywood'' in feel. Apparently, the designer designed it for a friend and then put it in her collection. Then, her friend got upset and Amsale pulled it from the collection. However, not before this sample could arrive at the boutique! It is a taffeta more simple A line with a gathered bust with a jewel encrusted diagonal bow with crystal buttons down the back of the entire dress.


This is all so very exciting!!!!

Well, this is the dress that I fell in love with that isn''t sold in my area... it is a Renella De Fina. I don''t even know what the front looks like, but I am obsessed with the back.
