So after going to 13 wedding stores, (yikes) and not finding anything, I thought it was safe to take the momma. I showed her pictures of the dresses I thought looked cool - not perfect but close to what I was looking for, I was surprised to find she agreed on the dresses. I thought she liked to place me in the nearest ballgown and call it a day but nope, momma wanted the same thing I did- no ruching, trumpet/mermaid ball, clean lines and strapless. This made me very happy. Since we were in the area, we stopped by The Wedding Outlet in Montebello, I had called earlier in the week and they said that I wouldn't need an appointment - nice!
Many of the dresses here were $500 some even less. They had a good selection of bridesmaid dresses & mother of the bride dresses. I tried two dresses just to show my mom how the trumpet/mermaid dresses looked on me and she loved the fit and confirmed the trumpet was perfect for me. The dresses here were not my style, too much ruching, but I would still recommend going here because the prices were amazing. They had a large selection of Eden Bridal gowns (see pic above) and can even special order some gowns.
