|My Dress is SO FAB it's in the Window!|
Hello guys and dolls! I know we have until next May but I am still so very excited for my wedding. As many of you already know I love The Curvy Bride. They are a bridal shop that caters to brides size 18 and up (bridal size 18 that is). That means a curvy girl such as myself can walk into their shop with confidence that the sample will fit me. And trust me I have had issues with dresses and size before. A few weeks ago (September 26 to be exact) I went in to try on my dress and put down my 75% payment. When I arrived I saw my beautiful blush Maggie Sottero in the window. Yes MY. I had tried it on before. I just couldn't buy it yet. When I went in a received the warmest welcome ever from Paige and Michelle. They've known me for over a year now and I consider them both really good friends. My mom grabbed a seat and Paige grabbed my dress off the mannequin and brought it to the dressing room. As I was pinned in it I just knew it was meant to be. I came out and I felt amazing but still like myself. After me and my mom agreed (again) that this was my dress Paige gave us champagne to toast the occasion. Then back in the dressing room Paige did my measurements and wrote them down. When she came back I tried on a different Maggie in a size closer to my own. She told be (very discretely) that I was between 3 sizes 24, 26 and 28... What? I love that she was discrete in the shop but you all know I don't keep secrets from you. Any way. The second Maggie I tried on was a 26. It fit me well and would only need a few alterations. Perfect! I ordered my Maggie Sottero in that size and put my payment on the dress. I can't wait for you all to see me in it! I would share it now but Dr. Fronkensteen might see it and I'm old fashioned. What do you think? Love my dress? Thanks again to The Curvy Bride for being fabulous and wonderful and making me feel so special.
