I think this gown is gorgeous!  It would probably look more bridal in a lighter shade closer to ivory but either way, I think it would be a great dress.

I think it’s a great idea!  And I’m sure other people on WB have done this.  I just can’t remember names right now…  Anyway have you decided what color you are going to get the dress in?  I really love it in the color shown, but I think it would be just as gorgeous in an off-white or champagne color, too.

I’ve actually suggested that brides look into bridesmaid dresses as their wedding dresses in order to save some money. And I think that dress would look gorgeous as your wedding dress! Go for it! And enjoy that extra money you save 😀

Gorgeous! I think it’s definitely a more affordable way to go. And if you don’t tell them, they probably won’t even know!

That dress in candlelight will be absolutely gorgeous. Besides, there are plenty of wedding dresses that cost 5x as much, but have very similar silhouettes to that gown. It seems that the big difference is what label the designer decides to slap on it!

I think that dress is fantastic — honestly, I was going to buy a BM dress to use as a wedding dress until my mom foudn one she couldn’t live WITHOUT me having.  I think it’s a totally underutilized resource – some BM gowns are fantastic for bridal wear, in my opinion.

You could also check out White House/Black Market for good dresses. My boss’s sister used them for her wedding dress, and it was stunning.

I was going to do the SAME thing – order a bridesmaid dress in ivory….I tried several on, and to be perfectly honest I didn’t feel any different being in a bridesmaid dress versus the bridal dresses that I tried on.  It’s gorgeous, and I promise that if you don’t tell anyone your "secret" they won’t know…
