    Hi everyone.

    I hope your wedding planning is going well.

    Well I have finally bought my wedding dress!!!! It certainly has been a long time coming, I started looking back in February and I think I have tried on about 60 dresses now (not exaggerating) I didn't find the experience that enjoyable, I found it quite stressful and struggled to pick one that did anything for me. I decided to take a few weeks off and concentrate on other things and start again. I saw my dress online and went specifically to this shop to try it, the girls in the shop were lovely, a really warm welcoming atmosphere and the shop was beautifully decorated. I tried on my dress first and then a few others and back in my own. Whilst it is a beautiful dress I didn't get that "this is the one feeling" but to be honest I don't think I'll ever feel that as I think I'm a bit fed up and just dying to get it finalised. Anyway, my dress was in the sample sale (less than half price), the shop is fully booked all weekend and a bride was coming back this week to try on my dress so I just bought it. Now I'm feeling like oh my god I can't believe I just did that, it's such a surreal feeling. Its Provonias Babia if anyone likes to have a peak (I know I do)

    I'm having a girls night in tonight as all our men are on a stag do so I'm sure a few vino's will sort me out

    Thanks ladies. I've woke up this morning still in a daze.

    Sprucey - yeah I went to a bridal shop near where I live that I knew stocks it. I just went onto Pronovias website and searched for stockists near where I live and work. It's worked our quite well as the bridal shop is just across the road from my photogropher.

    I'm now approaching the year mark and can't believe how quick it's flying in

    Oh never thought of doing that! Thought you had to go to only their stores I didn't realise there were other stockists! Might have to look!

    Joanne - I must admit I have had this dress at the back of my mind sine I first searched it. Where abouts are you? I'm trying to find a stockist in the north/north-east but I'm not having much luck. Its slightly worrying as I already have a dress but feel like I need to try it on to get it out of my system, ahh!

    Hi April, I'm just outside Glasgow and the shop I went to was in Bothwell which is about 10 minutes away from me. When I saw the dress online I just went onto Provonias website and looked up stockists in scotland. The next city near me was Edinburgh. I'll post this link on your wall if you want to search for stockists in your area. I know what you mean about wanting to get it out your system but just remember how you felt when you tried on your special dress and all the things you liked that made you say "this is the one" x

    Thank you. I think I may have tried that search but I'm worried I can't find the actual dress and they other Pronovias but not the same one. I must say you chose a gorgeous dress haha! If I do find one local I hope it does bring everything back about the dress I already have and I know there and then that I made the right choice. My mother in law would kill me too if I changed lol!
