When I saw them initially online, I fell in love with this one...
|One Shoulder Organza|
When I logged on to the David's Bridal website this morning to see the full collection, I almost jumped for joy when I realized that this dress and ALL of her dresses came in 'midnight' which is a dark navy -- just what we've been looking for!!
So...we did find two styles that we really loved in the new Vera line at DB, so they have been added to our options for bridesmaid choice selections...
...but alas, it was not the beautiful dress that I loved, loved, loved. Nope - my bridesmaid and I both tried it on and we both agreed that we looked like delicious, fluffy cupcakes.
|Ignore my bright pink bra strap. :)|

I was so disappointed that this dress looked nothing like the online picture that I even grabbed it at one point, shook it in the air and said "Damn you Vera, damn you!". Lol...ok, yeah, I'm dramatic...but I'm the bride, so it's allowed, right? :)
The store manager told us she's actually using this dress as her Jr. Bridesmaid dresses - which I thought was a super cute idea. These dresses would be adorable on tweens - but on 30 yr olds? Not so much.
But like I said, we did find two of the dresses that we L-O-V-E-D that I really didn't think I would... so it wasn't a waste of a trip....more on them later....
