While I was over in Utah two weeks ago, I tried on wedding dresses with my mom. We started at the most awesome store in Trolley Square, Alta Moda. If you live in Utah, you MUST go to this store. The owner is a really nice woman who treats you like a queen. They only carry designer dresses and have a special relationship with most designers to get their dresses altered to have sleeves and backs. Really, SUCH a great place! I found the dress of my dreams. Unforch, I'm not going to share and details at all because ear doctor reads this and I don't want to give anything away.
The dress I found cost $4600! Who in their right mind would pay that much for a dress? Anyway, I sunk down into a pit of despair after I took a look at the price tag. Ugh. I was annoyed all day.
We went to some other shops and tried similar cuts and styles. The thing is, you can really tell the difference between at $500 and a $5000 dollar dress.
We decided that my mom is going to make me the dress of my dreams. She's an amazing seamstress, at the dress really isn't complicated so I'm pretty sure it will turn out beautiful! Plus, I think it is a really awesome way to have my mom involved in everything with her being so far away (she lives in Washington State).
My aunt and grandma think we are crazy to try to do this.
I'm going to love proving them all wrong.
