Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
Perfect Gown for Me!
I had admired this dress online for a while before being able to try it on and it was so much better in person! I tried on a total of 8 dresses I think and this was the second one I tried on, and I didn't want to take it off. I knew it was the one for me right off the bat. I tried on other dresses to make sure it was exactly what I wanted, but as I was trying other dresses on I just wanted to get back into this one. I purchased the dress a year and a half before m wedding (it was bought at my first ever dress appointment) and over the course of that 1.5 years I gained some weight which I was unable to shed. Due to the weight gain my dress no longer fit and I was devastated! I had planned on adding a corset back in to help with it but the alterations lady actually suggested I call the store I originally bought the dress from and see if I could exchange for a different size. I did and the wonderful ladies at the London, ON store helped me make my wedding dreams come true! I now have a dress that fits absolutely PERFECTLY and I can't wait to get married to the man of my dreams in 10 days!!! Love this dress, would definitely recommend this dress and David's Bridal to anyone looking to find their wedding dress.

I kept trying on mermaid dresses because I wanted to look amazing with something pulling my figure in. I decided to go ahead and try this dress on for the heck of it. It was the fifth dress that I tried on and the only one that my mom and MoH agreed on and made me cry. I just couldn't get emotional or attached to the others. In this dress, I felt like me. Plus, it was really fun to twirl in.

A Perfect Fit
I've never exactly been "small". I actually had a lot of anxiety about my dress appointment, afraid that I'd be embarrassed or ashamed, and walk out empty handed. This dress was the FIRST dress I tried on when my appointment began...I LOVED it!!! I only tried on one other dress that I had liked a lot online, just to be sure...but my heart definitely belonged with the first. To be a size 22, and have such awesome luck with what could have been a horrible experience, was truly a blessing. Finding this dress was fate. My DB experience, consultant, and this dress, were excellent. Ringing that "celebration bell" in the store after "saying yes to the dress", brought happy tears to my eyes.

More beautiful in person!
This was the first dress I tried on. I ended up trying several more, but this one was the one I knew I would end up buying! I am a size 16W and I think it looks absolutely beautiful. It made my partner cry :) I added the sash in Marine and I am getting a petticoat in the dark navy/marine color to wear beneath. I added a cape, too, for modesty, but I"m not sure if I"ll wear that or not.
