Growing up, every formal dress I ever had was clingy. I had curves and long, clingy dresses were good for showing them off so I always ended up with a clingy dress.
When it came to picking a wedding dress, I wanted something “poofy” as I called it. I tried on a few dresses at a small dress shop by my parents’ house but they sprung that on me last minute and I wasn’t in the mood. Plus, I wanted to try on dresses with my bridal party.
So the day came to go to David’s Bridal. I’ve heard horror stories about DB’s but I had a great girl helping me and had a really go experience with them. I actually saw my dress after I was done picking out other dresses to try on. It was hanging on the wall and I mentioned it was really pretty so the salesperson pulled it down.
Do not try dresses on without looking at the price tag FIRST. Because I didn’t look at the tag. I tried the dress on, fell in love and then realized it was over my price range.
Thankfully, DB’s had a sale and my folks were very generous so in the end I got my pretty dress. It’s ivory and champagne, which was perfect for my darker complexion. Some days I still want to pull it out and wear it again.
