Dress Ordered!

Well, yesterday I ordered my wedding dress! No turning back now without losing out on a bunch of cash so I think I'll stick with the dress. I went back to Promise for the Savvy Bride in Bethesda to try on the dress I liked the most out of the 40 or so I've tried on since starting the hunt. The previous attendant who helped me on my last visit, Kori, is getting married this weekend so she wasn't there, but the two women in the store this time were equally as friendly and easy to be around. I can't rave enough about the warm feelings at this place.

I tried on a few more gowns that were new since I had been there last and they were nice but when I tried on my favorite one again I knew for sure that it was "the one." No use wasting anymore time. I've tried to find a picture online of it but haven't been able to so far. I would post pictures of me in it but my fiance knows I blog and although he doesn't regularly read DCNearlyweds I don't want to take any chances.

The dress is made by a Chicago based design house called Vwidon. A husband and wife duo, Carla Hwang and Kenneth Park , are the designers behind Vwidon. They are both graduates of the Art Institute of Chicago and have been designing gowns since 2001. Most of their dresses have a very modern feel with contemporary silhouettes. Their main boutique is in Chicago and there are only three other stores in the country that carry their dresses. Promise for the Savvy Bride is the only store in the metro area that carries Vwidon. I wish I lived in Chicago so I could have tried on their entire line :(

What I love about my dress is the high quality of the fabric (silk), the simplicity of the design, and how light and soft the dress feels. A lot of bridal dresses can feel heavy or itchy, but I just want to roll around on mine.

^My dress is most similar to the above design, but if y'all know me at all you know that I don't do poofy. So imagine the top part of the dress but with a close fitting, non-poofy bottom. It's very sleek.

Below are some of their other designs:

^As you can see they mostly do modern cuts with great fabric

^I love the cap sleeves on this one. Great quality.

^Even when they do poofy they make it look contemporary.

Beautiful! I love the variation on using the draping and gathering but with something more form fitting. I have more of a ball gown because I'm shorter and can't pull off something so close fitting.
