View Full Version : I got my dress!

01-09-2011, 05:01 PM
I went to an Alfred Angelo store with my grandma and nephew on Friday and got my dress! I wanted to try on the gowns from the Disney collection but I really did not intend on buying one of these because I had my eyes on another dress. I am considered plus size and I was actually surprised at how nice the Disney line looked on me. The dresses are very slimming. In my mind I thought these dresses would just look nice on tall thin people. A word of advice to other plus size brides, try this line on!!! They are very flattering! I will try to post some pics later. The pictures of these dresses do not do them justice. They all have so much detail and are so pretty in person. I had a hard time trying to decide between the Belle and Cinderella dress. They are both so pretty and I loved how the Cinderella one sparkled. In the end I chose the Belle. My grandma and I both got emotional with that one. It just seemed more fitting for the day. Besides the fact that she my favorite princess. This was also the dress I think my fiancÚ will like the most; she is his favorite princess too! The store that I went to had great customer service and they made this amazing experience!

You look so good in the Belle one! I love it! :) Did you see the Ariel dress at all? That one is my favorite one and I would love to see it!

I didn't see the Ariel dress. I knew I didn't want a mermaid style dress so I didn't look at it. But now that I think about it I should have looked at it just to see it in person.
Thanks guys for all the nice comments. If I knew how I would respond to them individually.
