I wore this wedding dress for my wedding last August (2012). I had originally decided on a different gown when I went shopping with my sister. However, I knew I needed to go on at least onewedding dress shopping trip with my Mom so I drove from MA, where I live, to NYC, where my family is to go dress “browsing”. Being in NYC, we had to stop by Kleinfeld’s just to see what all the fuss was about. I actually had a great experience and we ended up being in some background shots on the episode of SYTTD that Johnny Weir was on.
I was planning on purchasing my wedding gown myself and started off by trying on things only within my price range. However, my Mom was insisting I try on this Peter Langner Puccini wedding gown she saw. This gown was gorgeous but I was hesitant to try it on since it was way out of my price range. Of course I tried it on and loved it but was annoyed that my Mom insisted I try on a gown I knew I couldn’t afford. She then surprised me by saying she would purchase the gown for me as my wedding present! It was a great surprise! Also, there just happened to be a trunk sale that day, so we got a discount on it as well.
