(To read the first part of the story, take a look at my previous post: Dress Story- Part 1.)
After trying on dresses in California, I went to Texas to try some of my favorites with my family. First we went to David's Bridal and I tried on some of the ones I liked there. My family liked the same dresses I did but there wasn't one that everyone had a big reaction too.
The next day we went to Alfred Angelo after a trip to Build-A-Bear where my youngest sister got a new lamb. The lamb went with us to shop for dresses!
At Alfred Angelo I was able to try on the Ariel and Snow White Disney dresses. Ariel was a very beautiful dress with a lot of detail! I liked it but it was a little too hard for me to walk in. I really liked the Snow White dress though and it became a fave.

I must add that at this Alfred Angelo I was paired with an awesome dress consultant. She was so helpful and really went out of her way to make the whole dress shopping experience a special one! She even played with my little sister's lamb and let my sister try on a big tiara!
After a couple more dresses I tried on my favorite dress from my previous visit to the California Alfred Angelo for my family to see. This was the one everyone seemed to love! It is not a Disney dress but looks a lot like Belle's ballgown dress from Beauty and the Beast. I tried on a few more dresses afterwards but everyone in my family seemed to agree that the Belle-like dress was the one. I tried it on one more time and then we looked at veils and tiaras. I ended up picking a tiara my youngest sister picked out. I love the tiara even more because of that!
So my dress is picked out and that big decision is done! I'm not posting a picture of it because I want it to be a surprise for the wedding guests. I'll be getting my dress in the mail in July. I can't wait!
