As the Dress Twirls – HisBirdie’s Wedding Dress Story (Part 2)
On my continued search for a Wedding Dress – MOB, MOH (and my lil’ sister) and BM F all went to La Soie Bridal in the Tustin Market Place.
Side Story: I found out about La Soie because of a friend from school. We were all sitting around on break talking about where we work and she told me she worked at a Bridal Salon, I asked her what they carried, she told me and I went home and looked at those dresses (I know nothing about most dress designers). When I like what I saw I called and made an appointment, I didn’t end up meeting with her, which is probably for the best since I she really doesn’t need to see me in my bra & panties.
Okay so me and my entourage go to La Soie and meet with Staphany, a totally sweet girl. Stephany pointed us toward the A line dresses let us go through the racks and pull out anything to try on… I pretty much decided to try on anything the entourage showed me. One thing I noticed when going through their racks was how reasonable the dresses were priced, all around $700-$1000.
Once in the dressing room (yes this time it was big enough to call a room AND it had mirrors! I forgot to mention that DB does not have mirrors in the box) I tried on the first dress Stephany had picked out for me and really liked it, plus I was also pleasantly surprise to find out I fit in their sample size – YAY! I walked out to show MOH and BM F who weren’t outside the room looking at BM dresses, everyone kinda liked it but like me there were things about it they didn’t like – mainly the corset/lace-up back I didn’t want and the weird fabric under the boobs.
Again with the weird face, WTF camera operator? OOOR Maybe I should take this as a sign that I don’t really like the dress… hmmmmm. As you can see the sample fit but was still too small the back didn’t lace up right and my boobs are coming out – pretty no?
After this dress I trired on a BUNCH more (sorry no pics of those) and then Stephany pulled out a dress I didn’t really want to try on, but agreed to anyway… well once I got it on I LOVED it! I made me look skinnier, it kept the girls under control (but I could still make it a sweetheart neckline) and it was soooo light (organza’s like that you know). But, I didn’t want to stop trying dresses on because I wasn’t completely sold, so I tried on a few more and then decided to try on the first one again and the organza one… AND take pictures!
MOH armed with my camera and BM F on the look-out
we took the picture above and my picture in the organza dress. (Of course we found out later the pictures were totally allowed HAHAHA!)
Oh LOOK! She has a face and its a happy one! (So happy it looks like I invited my chins to the party). This dress is still too small, so the girls are still kinda pushing out but you get the idea. So, this is the dress, when I tried it on the 2nd time I knew this was the dress, so we bought it… or put in the order for a size bigger and paid half… and so the search was done right? Ummm wrong, nothing is that easy!
