Drumroll please….the dress!

Something I’ve been wanting to spill the beans about for a looooong, looooong time: my dress!

The dress is by Allure Bridals. I initially found it at Diane’s Formal Affair in Jasper, Alabama. However, I actually bought it at bestbridalprices.com. I would definitely recommend that site — the dress came more quickly than anticipated and they give you free shoes (up to $50) and a free veil (up to $120 — ultimately I did not wear one).

Click on this link to see some skinny model in the dress, then come back here and look at the difference between the neckline on the model’s and the neckline on my dress.

It’s no secret that I am a D cup and the model wearing the dress on that link is an A- cup, so she gets away with the plunging neckline (and the huge 80s earrings) easily. I however, do not. So my wonderful seamstress Michelle at Ramsey Alterations in Vestavia Hills, Alabama, took fabric from the hem to create a more modest neckline. She also took in the dress at the shoulders and torso to make it a perfect fit.
