I went in thinking I'd try on some nice dresses, but I would ultimately buy the one that I liked in Iowa... Then I tried on the first dress and it was the one. I knew the instant I put it on, I had no reservations, there was no "I like this part and this part, but I kind of wish this part was a little different." It was perfect. I did not cry - I actually have not cried once in the whole bridal experience - but I smiled a lot.
Then I looked at the price... And it was $400 under what I had budgeted! SOLD.
I have pictures of me in the dress, but I am going to wait to post pics of me in the dress until after the wedding, here is a picture from the website though:
Yep, I am in love. Can't wait to wear it!
