Updates...

On Saturday I went with my BM to the National Wedding Fayre. It was a great day out. I tried on a couple of dresses but not many as I wouldn't buy one without my Mum. One dress I did really like but it made my hips look huge. We also found my BM her dress. Its not a proper bridemaid dress so she'll be able to where it again. Its from a shop called Next (a bit like Banana Republic) and was only 45.

Then today I went wedding dress shopping with my Mum again. We went to one shop where I found a dress I really liked that was 50% off so I was very tempted by it. Then we went back to the first shop i'd ever gone to and tried on the first dress i'd liked, this one...

and I looked awful in it. After trying on lots of other i'd got a better idea of what suited me and this didn't!

I tried on loads some of which I really liked, one in particular made me look very slim however I then tried on what I think is THE ONE. I'm going back tomorrow to try it on again to see if I still like it after sleeping on it, and this is it...



I'll let you know how I get on...

The One?

Well I went back and tried it on again and that confirmed it is THE ONE so I've ordered it and paid my deposit! I can't believe I've picked it 14.5 months in advance but nothing could have compared to that. They said it would take about 14 weeks to arrive. When it comes I'll have a photo taken to post on here. I'm so happy!

Just had an update from Disney "We unfortunately do not currently have an end date for the refurbishment. I believe the current booking policy will stay in effect for all of 2009." So you should be able to book at the normal 12 months out i'd think.

It is a relief but I like trying them on so much and now I can't anymore! Have fun looking for yours.

Oooh intruiging!
I have a little guess as to what colour could be involved...
