The first one I got is the Sue Wong Strapless Feather Gown. I got this dress in white, not the peachy color as shown below.
I really really like this gown, I think it's just gorgeous and will be great in white. I'm really hoping that this will be "the one". How perfect if I have this as my wedding dress, and my other Sue Wong dress I just bought from Hautelook for either the reception or the rehearsal dinner (actually BBQ) the night before!
They kind of match! So fingers crossed for this dress! It will be awesome if I can get a perfect dress without having to deal with going to an actual store. And it's priced at $658 which is pretty cheap as far as wedding dresses go (I'm still trying to wrap my head around this). Bloomingdale's has it in stock and they will be shipping it out within 48 hours so I guess I will be getting it soon enough!
Next, I got the Tadashi Shoji Strapless Feathery Gown:
This gown is similar, but it looks like it has more organza stuff than feathers. It could look beautiful if it ends up fitting well too. But I am not crazy about the black sash belt, so if this ends up being the one, I will get a different sash. Maybe something like this Vera Wang floral sash from David's Bridal.
I think it will go very well with the Tadashi Shoji dress because the Vera Wang dress almost looks exactly the same in the front. It's just more "me" than black.
The Tadashi Shoji dress is $808, so I hope the Sue Wong dress ends up being the winner! This is the one that has to be ordered, so I will be getting it in about a month or so.
I really hope that one of the dresses will be a good candidate for me so I don't have to feel so pressured to go find a dress right away. Besides, the return period is 3 months, so during that time I can still shop for other dresses just in case I like something better. Then I can still return it at Bloomingdale's. It's great! I should've thought of this idea sooner. I guess I didn't expect that you could return wedding dresses there, since normal bridal shops don't allow that, even David's won't take anything back. If I end up not liking either dress, I will just return both. No biggie. I didn't even have to pay shipping for them because Bloomingdale's ships for free on orders over $300. So it's really a win-win situation I think. Now the wait begins!
