The dress: Anne Barge
Dresses tried on before finding The One: "This was one of the first few dresses I tried on, and after spending the rest of the day shopping, I kept going back to this one."
The story: "I loved the subtle layering and that it felt like a wedding dress but was still simple enough to reflect my personal style. It was actually pretty comfortable and easy to wear, and I loved the way it moved, especially when the train wasn't bustled."
Something old, something new...: "The Jimmy Choo shoes that my mother-in-law bought for me were new, my old and borrowed were two diamond tennis bracelets that my mom and stepmom let me wear. My something blue was Hanky Panky 'I Do' underwear that was given to me at a shower."
Where the dress is now: "I had it cleaned and preserved in a box. It's now high on a shelf in a closet somewhere at my in-laws' house!"
