    Hi all!

    We'll be getting married in December 2020, however I'm obviously excited and planning away already & making sure we have budgeted well.

    My chief bridesmaid took me dress shopping the other day to cheer me up (I never thought I'd get married and my sister has not taken the news well despite being younger and engaged for 3 years now). I had no idea what I was looking for or what dresses were out there and tried on a few to see how things fit and sizings etc, I felt a little like I was playing dress up until I actually ended up finding one that I could see myself as an actual bride in. A beautiful Mori Lee for only 499 with minimal alterations needed!
    CB pointed out that it was the first place we went to and I have over a year until the wedding. So obviously I haven't been back to get it.

    I am a gym bunny and the only thing that may change shape wise is my butt gets a little bigger and my shoulders/arms tone up (it was a strapless fit and flare style dress) so I'm not too worried about that (plus I have a PT who kicks my butt!).
    I can't get that dress off my mind, it was quirky and perfect but I've been told to wait and see what else there is in the next couple of months - but I know if I can't find something that makes me feel the way I did in that dress then I'm going to be gutted - it is a discontinued collection now.

    How do you deal with shopping for THE dress???

    1, why do you have to try on loads more dresses if you have found one you love
    2, if you dress is being ordered then actually getting it ASAP is a really good idea

    I found my dress straight away in the first shop i went in. Looked around and cant find anything to rival it so I'm just getting that as it has to be made to order so ordering it early is actually better for me :)
