I choose this dress because I immediately loved it as soon as I put it on, and I felt beautiful in it. Before I was engaged, I never really spent much time fantasizing about a wedding or what I would look like on that day. I had no preconceived notion of what style of dress I had to have. I was very open, which made the decision of what to wear overwhelming at first. However, it didn't take me long to find 'the one'. I flew to Toronto to go dress shopping with my mom and best friend, who was also my Maid of Honor. When I came out of the dressing room with my wedding dress on, everyone was speechless. No alterations or discussion needed. It was clear. The key was the corset back, which created an extremely flattering silhouette. I adored the beading and pick-ups, which added drama, but not too much. Deep down inside, I also knew Rick, my husband, would love me in this dress.
