    My first dress was supposed to be a replica of a Martin McCrea design — and it turned out horribly! At first we were going to try and salvage it but the more I was around it, the more I hated it! The second dress was a “boho” style that didn’t match my accessories at all but it was better than the first dress! Then I happened upon dress #3 on eBay, I took a chance and got it and I was very pleased with it.

    I had it and I bought a new one. My first one was a satin, mermaid that we got at a running of the brides for $300. My new one is a retro, natural-waist, taffeta ballgown. Due to a snafu with the designer, my new dress only ended up costing about $350-400…. so I was still under my dress budget even with 2 dresses.

    Can you post of a pic of your dress?

    I’m not understanding why you couldn’t wear your hair down with the dress you have.

    Yeah you are right…i would wear your hair up for that dress….on another note


    I LOVE YOUR DRESS….i have never seen anything like this on wedding bee before, its amazing…so so so gorgeous.

    What about doing something loose at yourneck instead, kind of halfway in between type thing

    Like this…so its still down, but in the front so it doesnt take away from the back?

    I still think you could wear your hair down with no problems.

    What about wearing your hair down but off to the side? like a curly side pony or something?

    That’s funny…I loved that same dress in the catalog, and thought it looked great when I tried it on. However, my friend emailed me photos of me in it, and suddenly I hated how I looked and didn’t end up ordering it. I thought it odd that my memory of the dress differed so sharply from the photographic evidence (that didn’t happen with other dresses) and it sounds like you had the same experience.

    However, seeing YOUR dress pics, I think that you look great. Honestly! Even with your lovely hair down. You’ve got the height and the figure to pull off this dress well. I like the hairstyle Baileyh suggested — back a little, but not “up.”

    The cape part of that dress detaches, as I recall, but it sounds like you don’t want to remove it. Maybe you can find a way to wear that dress that feels right to you. Can you pin hair up and wear cape for ceremony and then remove cape and take hair down for reception? That could be fun!

    You’ve got plenty of time and a very resellable dress. If you can’t make peace with it, I say sell it and get something you absolutely love!

    @JenniMichele: If you’re getting married on a yacht and it could be windy, I would wear your hair up, anyway… otherwise, it could get “ugly” real quick 😉 Personally, I think it looks fantastic on you and would be perfect for your setting!
