I have to admit, I fell in love with my dress as soon as I saw it… in a magazine.
In my eyes, I knew this would be it and nothing can top this dress. As I mentioned in my very first post, I grabbed monthly bridal magazines on the stands and subscribed to Brides and Martha Stewart Wedding.
I called every bridal store in San Diego. No luck. So I called up North and visited Mary Me Bridal in the City of Orange. It was the first dress I tried on and I was right.. it was MY dress! I should have tried the other dresses I brought into the dressing room so that I can pretend I was on the show “Say Yes to the Dress.” haha!

Without further ado, my dress:
Jasmine Couture – Spring 2011 Collection
Photos: Bauman Photographers
Details: Ivory / Satin Faced Organza & Lux Organza / Chapel train length
Alterations: Removed straps, made into a sweetheart top, shortened length. [Thanks to 2000 Dreams Bridal]
What attracted me to the dress: Feather details, the cut and drop of the back of the dress, and the giant bow.
I felt so pretty wearing this!
