My perfect dress!
I went home for the weekend during Thanksgiving. I actually almost bought another Vera dress, but had to try this dress on. I fell in love instantly. This is exactly what I had been looking for. Bonus...it has pockets!!! :)
My grandma has terminal cancer, and most likely will not make it to the big day. I was so happy that David's Bridal could set up a separate appointment for her and all my aunts to come in to see me in my dress! :)

My ceremony was an outdoor ceremony on a farm, so i was looking for a dress that felt organic and easy -- no shiny materials for me. When i got to the store, my mom had me try this one on even though it didn't look that flattering on the mannequin - it was the 4th dress i tried on and all looked great, so i wasn't too sure i would actually have the "moment" -- as soon as i saw myself in the mirror I couldn't stop crying. This dress felt amazing and just like "me".
At my first fitting after getting it in, i started having reservations because of the empire waist - i was worried i would look pregnant! This was only a couple weeks before the wedding and i was starting to stress out, no way i was going to order another dress -- i would have to make it work. Luckily, the sash is long enough that i was able to wrap it around the bodice a couple times and still have a beautiful bow - creating a perfect waistline.
Now, i can't stop staring at pictures of myself in this dress, it's everything i wanted. The fabric is beautiful and unique; the organic flow of the dress is easy to wear -- overall, so chic and classic with a little bit of modern, sexy flair.

BEST dress EVER
I tried on 100s of dresses and this is my absolute favorite. I wore this dress on my wedding day and received so many complements that I felt and looked like a princess! My husband loved the dress and it photographs extremely well!! I wrapped the bow around my waist and added a custom belt that really made the dress sparkle! Really every girl wants to wear Vera on her wedding day!
