Wedding Recap: Meet my Dress!

I think it's about time you Meet MY DRESS!! Please welcome my Pronovias dress: Ronda

I tried on over 50 dresses before settling on this one. You may remember my first experience, and then my second time going out. I wasn't feeling any of the dresses, and I thought "Maybe I'm just not a 'this is the one' type person" But then the woman at Bridals By Sandra brought this out and I knew it was it the second I saw it! I loved the lace straps, the lace overlay, the detail..everything. But what I love most about this dress is the back...Oh the back!!


Here I am at my final fitting one month before the wedding.
I don't usually get emotional over clothing, or really care all that much, but I truly love this dress with all my heart. Mistake #2 for my day: I HAD a nice hanger and completely forgot to use it here! :(
 Day of shots:
The Family
With Mom!
With Dad!
  
And with my girls!
 
Where did you find your dress? Did you know it was the one?

I love your dress. very classy. Where did I find my dress? In my mother's cedar chest! She and I took it out, I put it on, it fit perfectly and was beautiful Chantilly Lace. She paid $100 for it in 1950 including alterations. Pretty sweet.

Jessica said...

GORGEOUS dress! It looks amazing on you! And my dress-- I didn't /know/ it was the one instantly, but it grew on me when I kept on switching between that one and another one.

Heather said...

I love your dress - especially the v-neck/back and sheer lace straps!

K said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE. Your dress is amazing. I love the style. Not something you see often. LOVE IT!

Heather said...

I love your dress, Laura! It's stunning both on the hanger and on you! I was a two-dress bride -- the first one was an off-the-rack bargain dress, but as time went on, I knew I just wasn't in love with it. But when I went back and tried on my lace Alfred Angelo dress, I knew 100 percent that it was the right one.

Your dress is gorgeous! Your right, the back was NOT to be hidden! :) I found mine at David's and took it home THAT day... The price you pay for living in the booneys I guess... haha!

Yay!!! I love dress stories!!! All the pictures are just wonderful, Laura. You all look SO amazing. :o)

I think your dress is very pretty, timeless and classic. I'm a fan of lace myself :)

I tried on around 30 but knew my dress was the one pretty quickly, primarily b/c I couldn't stop swaying in it like I was dancing.

Sara said...

LOVE IT. It looks similar to mine. I loved everything Pronovias but ended up with a St Patrick from their sister company. Its so beautiful and very classy.

Jasmine said...

i knew right away that i had found "the one". it's the strangest feeling. but when you know -- you know! i think it's a little bit like finding your husband. haha.

Katie said...

Your dress is beautiful and you looked amazing in it!

My dress was found on day 1 of shopping. I just felt this rush of emotion wash over me when I tried it on, I still love love love it, even months after our wedding :)

Your dress was absolutely perfect and classic. I found my dress the first place we went to try dresses on. It was one of the first I tried on and I have not turned back since!! Hope your having a great weekend!

Lexi said...

I love this idea... I'm going to steal it and do a "meet my dress" post :-D

I also forgot my nice hanger on the day of the wedding.

Love your dress... I'm a HUGE fan of lace and yours is BEAUTIFUL!

Mindy said...

Your dress is AMAZING! Totally stunning on you. :) I also tried on over 50 dresses before I found "the one." And like you I knew it right away when I first saw it. I can't wait until the wedding is over so I can share it on my blog! Anyway, you look amazing and I am enjoying reading the story of your big day. :)

Love love love :)) I think my favorite part is the sheer "sleeves" up top - it definitely makes it stand out from the crowd.

My dress took me a hot minute to warm up to, but once I did? I didn't want to take that baby off.. which is how I knew it was "the one".

Nicole-Lynn said...

It's so pretty! I love it on you!

I bought my dress online, and it was on sale! :) It was just what I envisioned for our beach wedding.
