Wishful Wednesday- Wedding Dresses

I just came across Wishful Wednesday blog hop started by Kelsey over at The Seattle Smiths.

'I wish' .... I could wear/could have worn _____ dress on my wedding day!

I loved my wedding dress. I went to atleast 7 if not more bridal salons before deciding on "the one". I had origianlly wanted a sweetheart cut neckline, with some sort design on the bottom of the gown, and a lace-up in the back.

The first dress shop I went to told me that due to my height any detail on the bottom of the dress would have to be cut off when they hemmed it. They were wrong. I was later told that this specific company does "chop jobs" does not hem right and dresses are known for falling apart. I was able to have design on the bottom of the gown. That meant going dress shopping again.
I then found a dress I liked and was going to buy. But just because I went to another local bridal salon and tried on some more dresses. My mom was with me and when I tried on this one dress it made her cry. Thats when I knew it was the one. It was originally orignally sweetheart, but could be made that way. It had detail on the bottom, but didn't have the lace up in the back. (I was told by another shop that I couldn't do the lace up due to have such big boobs that I have to wear a corset bra and you would see the bra with the lace-up. I found out after my wedding that this is not true.) My dress also gave me a "coke glass" shape which I loved.

I wouldn't change my dress for anything. Though now I am into adding a splash of color.

Very pretty dress! I do like the ones with a splash of color though.

Pretty dress, I really like the back shot.

That is crazy that they told you that they would have to alter it to get what you want! Those alteration people can do wonders!

I think the best feeling is not wanting to change something -- it's gorgeous!!!
