OK, so I am having such a difficult time deciding on a dress. At first, my Mom would not give me her opinion. I got desperate, and made a poll on here. Then, I got really desperate and asked my fiance what he thought. I showed him pics of me in Wedding dresses (for the superstitious crowd, I know, it’s very bad luck! I just couldn’t help myself.) So, the one dress that I had no interested in buying…he loves! Now, when I show him dresses in magazines, he’ll point out things he doesn’t like. Then he’ll comment on the dress that wasn’t really a contender. So, I asked him, why do you like it so much… he jokingly said, “cause it’s got the fluff in the back, jack!”. So, I was already confused–trying to find a dress to please everyone else. Now, I have this dilema added! By the way… here is the dress he likes. It is a Sophia Tolli. I think it looks pagenty. Its pretty in its own way, but definately not what I envisioned getting married in. I’m thinking something like Maggie Sottero Divina would be nice (the pink one pictured below). However, I am worried it is out of my price range. Any suggestions on dresses that I should look at? I’d prefer to stay below $1K.

I basically went shopping the first time with zero ideas and an open mind. So glad I didn’t buy anything that day!
Second time I had asked FI if he had any preferences as to dress features. He said “maybe a little leg” (BOYS :P) so when I went I went with what I was comfortable and felt good in, but I also kept his request in mind. So a little bit of each for both of us. 🙂

I think you’d look fabulous in Divina! 🙂
Also, my husband had a specific idea of what a bride meant to him in his head, and I ended up with none of those concepts (I was not going to be in a fluffy ballgown, no i wasn’t. And it wasn’t going to be stark white, thank you very much :D). In the end, he loved the ivory fit and flare dress I wore on our wedding day!

I think it’s very hard for men to picture their fiance on the wedding day, my fiance doesn’t like mermaid gowns on the model but guess what he is getting! I don’t think this means he will be revolted or shocked when he sees me, I’m counting on him to love it. Not because of the style but because it’s HIS wife in a dress on their wedding day.
I think the Divina would look great on you, and in addition the Divina can be very form flattering! That might be a good compromise. It’s not pagenty at all but it can show off your figure quite nicely.
