I dragged my fiance to a wedding expo and while there received a gift card to David’s Bridal. While home for Christmas, 18 months before the wedding actually occurred and before we had even set a date, I went dress shopping with my sister and my mom as the gift card expired at the end of the year. I wasn’t really expecting to find anything as this was my first dress shopping trip, but we thought we’d check it out since I had the gift card. And it was meant to be…we all fell in love with this dress.

After trying on several dresses, we all knew this was the one. The floral and beaded appliques were unique and I knew I wanted a little color – and the royal blue sash was the perfect finishing touch.

The three dimension appliques are beautiful.  Heather is right, this wedding dress is unique and the perfect wedding gown.
