I got married in Maui, Hawaii, on Mokapu Beach, on December 10th, and even though I was in a full wedding gown, it was perfect!
I had gone first to David’s Bridal and didn’t like a single one of their dresses at all. I went home and made an appointment with Norman’s and with gracies. My friend, who got married the year before, told me I would find what I wanted at Norman’s and end up canceling my appointment with gracies. She also said she didn’t like gracies because they don’t help you out your dress on like they do at David’s and Norman’s. Walking into Norman’s, I was very impressed with how welcoming and fun and sweet the store was, and unlike David’s Bridal, I found a ton of dresses I loved. The best part of the entire experience was the woman who helped me. She helped me understand how to select a dress, that I should pick the dress I love, not the dress that fits, because it can always be altered. She helped me select a dress that hid my trouble spots and supported me where I needed it. I ordered the dress, even though I was worried because the one in the store was several sizes too big, so I didn’t know how it would look fitted. Turns our she ordered the perfect size because it fit me like a glove and all I needed was the hem taken up,and busy taken in. Everyone told me I had a “wow” dress and they were right 🙂
