Without further ado...

As you know, I was unable to post these pictures earlier because it was in my sister's possession in America while I was in Jordan, but now I'm stateside, and I'm very happy to present....MY DRESS!

Ok, before I show it to you, however, I give you the honorable mentions:

First, the sweet, simple, sleeker silhouette I was originally leaning toward:

Then things got poofy...

REALLY poofy. The David's Bridal associate picked it out based on things I seemed to like. On the hanger I was thinking "Oh sweetie, this is a swing and a miss." But, then when I put it on...I loved it! She was fantastic--definitely my best consultant at any of the places I went to.

Then there was this:

The dress I loved in the cataloge, but had decided NOT to try it on because it was over my budget. But, my mother insisted I try it on! Now, we've both watched say yes to the dress enough times to know this is a mistake. I was working my budget around furiously after leaving David's bridal, certain that I was sold.

Then, I stopped at a little local boutique and found this:

It was another dress I had saved on my computer (but only for inspiration--as it was also out of range.) But at this boutique, it was HALF OFF! Squeeee! It was all that I wanted: ruffles, lace, and drama. Not to mention it made my waist look smaller, haha.

Well, guys, sorry it took so long to show you the dress! Hopefully, you weren't too disappointed!
