Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
I freaking LOVE my dress.
I have to admit, I was so against even looking at Davids Bridal dresses. I already had a dress, a cute champagne colored cocktail dress that was not meant for weddings but I had big plans to accessorize. I still love that dress (and will still wear it for something else) but I didn't want to miss out on the Gown Try-On Experience when my Mom came to visit. I went without any plans to actually buy anything but thought I'd like to at least see myself in something white and poufy, just to say I did it.
This was the first dress I tried on, and the only one that I thought might actually work. I liked the tea-length style but wasn't crazy about beading or lace, and was hoping for something a little more organic than what is typically offered at David's. I had low expectations, but once I was in the dress, WOW. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. We left the little jacket off and replaced the sash with a champagne one to give it a little more vintage appeal, and I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't buy the dress that day, but came back later, tried it again (after trying on much more expensive dresses at a cute plus size boutique) and it just won, hands down. It fits PERFECTLY and makes me look teeny tiny. I was expecting to be a size 26 at DB because I'm normally around a 24, but I fit into a 22 with a little room to spare (nice!). It fits so perfectly the only alterations I need are bringing the hemline up (because I'm only 5'1") and maybe sewing the bra in because the bustier/corset deal peeks out a little at the top. I do wish I had a little more cleavage in it but c'est la vie...there's plenty of time for that. Im pairing it with turquoise and pearl/rhinestone jewelry and a birdcage veil and turquoise shoes for that vintage-desert pop I was hoping for all along. I can't wait to wear this dress in exactly 1 year!
Oh, and the best part? I ordered it less than two weeks ago and I already have it in!
The pic of me in it isn't so great, and aren't the exact accessories Ill be wearing, but gives a good idea anyways.

I bought this dress and love it. I am a second time Bride and I never thought I would wear a wedding dress again. This drees is just darn cute. It is comfortable and easy to move in. I am not a fan of strapless but they added straps that fit under the little jacket. I love the jacket. I am doing the butter colored ribbon paired with gold. I will add a picture after my wedding. Great design and just darn cute!
