Since I've been engaged I've hit up tons of different bridal salons & trust me there are PLENTY in Southern California. I've gone to so many and at every place found at least one I liked. None of them made me cry, none of them gave me that crazy emotional feeling that I've heard so many brides talk about. My dilemma was I didn't know if maybe I just wasn't going to get that feeling... nonetheless I wouldn't commit.
Here were a few of the contendors:
Sara by Maggie Sottero
Adelaide by Maggie Sottero
Charmaine by Maggie Sottero
Style #1904 by CasaBlanca Bridal
So because I had no idea where I stood in the wedding dress decisions I decided there was one bridal shop I kept getting referrals too, one being from Mrs. French Bulldog, that this place was great. I wanted to make a visit there and there only. After going there it was decision time. I decided that the more I keep looking the more confused I will get.
This past Friday morning, MOH-Lu and I hit up Jinny's Bridal in Huntington Beach and were paired up with a fabulous consultant. She immediately asked for what exactly I was looking for and by now I had a good list in my head of things I liked and disliked after the many dresses I have tried on. She immediately got to pulling things off the rack and she dragged me into a dressing room with a sea of eight gorgeous wedding dresses -- all which happened to be Maggie Sottero. I swear I just lovvvve just about all of her dresses.
After trying on four dresses and liking them ALL I said we needed to stop and I didn't want to even bother with the other dresses, I thought that the first one was probably the one so I wanted to try it on again... sure enough I loved it and my MOH agreed. I couldn't believe I was liking every dress I tried on. There was another one that was a totally different style that I absolutely loved as well but for $600 more it was easy to make the decision. You'll see here that EVERY dress was so different so it was just a matter of choosing what I liked for myself and pictured myself in the most. Here are the four that I tried on at Jinny's Bridal...
