What IS she wearing?

Part of every bride’s journey to the altar includes finding THE DRESS.  Everyone kept telling me I would find THE ONE and that I’d just know it when I put it on. Some people even recounted stories of crying when they found their wedding dress.  In many ways I think I put too much pressure on myself based on what everyone had told me.  You’ll recall I tried on many, many, many dresses but my dress ended up being on I’d never seen in person, and didn’t even try on before I decided to buy it.  You’ve seen my dress in the teaser photos, but she deserves a proper introduction.

My dress is a custom made dress by Dolly Couture.  The design is called Milan.  And I love this dress.  I originally saw Dolly Couture featured in a post here on Wedding Chicks, and really loved the uniqueness of the designs.

When I received the dress, it was everything I hoped it would be.  The organza and tulle detailing was so beautiful.  It didn’t need any alterations, though I did make sure to add a little extra padding in the bust area since I’m not that well endowed.

I received many compliments on the dress.  It was 100+ degrees the day of the wedding, so a short dress definitely was a perfect pick.  And even though I didn’t ever have the feeling of finding THE ONE, I did find it in the end. 

Did you have a “THE ONE” feeling when you found your dress?
