Dress shopping

I don't know if all brides feel confused and overwhelmed the first time they go dress shopping. I'd like to think I wasn't the only one. Yesterday was some what enjoyable but not the oh la la that I had thought it would be. I was lucky enough that all the dresses fit me so my fear of being to fat for fittings was thrown to the wind. For the first hour I felt as if no one was understanding that I did not want the beads, poof and appliqu├ęs that most dresses seem to have. For a little while I even felt pressured to like those things. Nothing really wowed me. I think I may have given up the antique lace that I had wanted for just about ever. It was super uncomfortable, heavy and most of the antique feeling was lost because of all the beads and sequins. I tried one on that I actually liked but I didn't get the wow factor. I would love to post but pictures were not allowed in the shop. Grrr to that rule. Good news is the Pronovias dress I feel in love with at the bridal show is being sent over from Spain and will be at the shop after the holidays. Actually they ordered that dress and 11 others. SOOOOO EXCITING!
