So I bought the Dress!

Priscilla of Boston, NYC (2nd Floor)
Last week, or was it a bit longer than that?... I found the dress! So, last Wednesday I went back to New York City and actually purchased my dream Melissa Sweet dress. Not disclosing any details, you'll just have to wait like the groom-to-be. Now, the whole process of buying the wedding dress can be a bit emotional yes, I admit it its not as easy as I thought. Reason, your opinion of what looks good on you is not how others see you. So, my advice go with your gut feeling! For my second appointment I took the parents, let me just add that my winning dress was not their first choice. Brides-to-be your parents have a very specific ideal look that might not be your ideal vision. But that's ok we are all entitled to our opinion and I will emphasis DO NOT bring an entourage when shopping for your dress. Although, a few days later my parents agreed the dress looks fantastic! Dress should arrive in July, as I'm doing my alterations in Canada I don't have to add the two months it can take to do fittings. As for budget....so whatever you budget for the dress remember your going to break it so perhaps aim low. I went over by $1000, yeah I know but in my opinion well worth it as I've never seen any bride in my dress. Another suggestion, if you do go over your budget you can always re-sell your dress online or at a consignment shop after the big day. I was surprised at the quality of re-sell gowns that are available, really good however sizing can be an issue but nothing too major if you have a great seamstress.

Can't wait to see the dress ;) Another tip: if you're a bride-to-be, do not shop with another bride-to-be. She might buy your dream dress from you... true story... It happened to me. I'll admit I was not a happy camper!

Really?! Yeah I wouldn't be happy either. Hope you found your dream dress after that.

yay! congrats on buying the dress!

i admit, i sometimes daydream about my future wedding (way, WAYYY in the future :p) and am looking forward to the dress hunt :)

Hey Dani-the hunt is worth it & don't settle. I thought I'd never find my dress & was getting stressed as I know atleast 6-8 months to order but glad I kept to my vision literally. I drew my dream dress before I actually saw it & its pretty close:-)

I did not know the dress mean so much - I guess its the main accessory. Congrats finding it!
