Hi ladies!

Beautiful dresses everyone! I have unfortunately not been able to go try on dresses yet. I live in Florida, but my mom and mohs live in Mississippi. It has been hard, but I have held off from going and trying on any dresses because I really want to share that experience with my mom. I want the first time that I step in to a wedding dress to be with her smiling face shining back at me. So, I have fought off temptation and only looked online so that I know what I want when I go to try them on. Last week it finally happen! I fell absolutely head over heels with a dress and I'm so excited that it is within my price range! The only store that has it near me is in Atlanta 5 hours away. I can't wait to go try it on next month!

All these dresses are oh-so-gorgeous! I found mine a while back (before I got engaged...shhh!) and absolutely fell in love. Four days after the proposal I talked to my fiance and told him about the dress and he knew I HAD to have it, so I ordered it right away haha...

It is an ivory/champagne ballgown replica of this gown:

this is a link to my wedding dress I just bought. mine is actually in ivory/pearl though. its so beautiful. I'm actually not getting married until may 14, 2011 but I was looking at dresses and styles and couldn't pass this dress up. I just knew it was the "one" as did my mom and friends. its a size 14, which doesn't quite zip up completely, so I'll have to loose a little bit. but I have 15 months and plan on loosing even more weight than that, hopefully I'll need to take it in a lil when i do alterations. mori lee dresses pretty much fit true to size though, I normally wear 16 pants, and this 14 is about 1 -1 1/2 sizes to small.

I had the same fears. most dresses come plus sizes the hardest part is actually trying on the dress in store. most stores only carry sizes 6, 8, 10 so if you like me are larger then that they don't fit. however don't worry you have a few option, first while the dresses don't fit they can make them fit you by adding material to the back. Also call around and find a store or a bridal wearhouse where they carry larger sizes. my sister went to david's bridal.

Also think about a lace up back, most can fit plus and minus 2 sizes so you don't have to worry about gaining or losing a few pounds after you get the final fitting. and they make you look super skinny. I went maggie sottero.

so don't keep putting it off it takes 6 to 8 months to order a dress, and while I was so worried about about it, it turned out i looked so good in the dresses that it really helped my confidence.

Also i ordered the dress in my size now, so i know even if everything with my diet goes wrong i'll still look good on my wedding day... and while is is a lace up and will fit up to 2 sizes down, i'm really hopping i have to take it in :)

I'm getting married on November 7th and everyone keeps telling me I need to pick out and order a dress soon. I am NOT looking forward to having to go to a bridal store and either not fit into their stock dresses, or have to settle for a plus-size style that I don't like. I DO NOT WANT TO BE A FAT BRIDE! Does anyone have any suggestions or has anyone gone through this struggle before? I want to be excited and go dress shopping with my mom and sisters, but I don't want to be disappointed if I am unable to fit into my dream gown. I want to lose at least 60 lbs. before my wedding... emoticon

http://www.davidsbridal.com/search.jsp?s
earch_category=&search_query=9L9479
But she is going to lace up the back with the same color teal as the ribbons/bridesmaids. And the organza is going to have a teal underlayer. Its really pretty!!

Hey Everyone! Okay, so I am getting my dress after it has all of it's final alterations next Tuesday. I haven't lost any weight and just stayed the same from last time I went. When I did go last time it was a bit snug. And I am a little nervous to see how it's going to fit. Wish me luck. Even though I haven't lost weight maybe only 4 pounds or so, I hope I lost inches. Because I know weight loss can not all be deteremined on just the scale... right?
