Hello there hive 🙂
I went dress shopping for the FIRST time this weekend; went to two bridal stores and realized that my favorites are two gorgeous dresses that are completely different from each other. I still have a very long time until the wedding, so I’m trying not to sweat it too much, but I was wondering.
One of the dresses is completely my “vision” – glamorous, yet simple with beading in only a few places and luxurious fabric with a fit and flair silhouette.
Alfred Angelo, 809:
The second dress is a little more traditional, with beading at the bust and a light lace (I say light b/c I tried on another lace gown that weighed approximately 200 pounds lol) all over and well…it just made me feel like a bride –
David’s Bridal WG9821:
(This photo does the dress zero justice, IMO tehe)
So – did anyone else’s dress style completely change once you put dresses on? Did you end up with something completely different than what you originally pictured?

The Alfred Angelo dress is gorgeous! The back of it is sooooo pretty! But maybe I’m being biased since I’m an AA bride myself! 🙂

I had several different dresses that I really loved. I finally made my choice only after seeing the pictures of me actually in them. The one I really loved, when I saw the pictures (I took some on my phone and some with my camera) I realized that the pictures came out making me look really square. I was so upset, but I ended up with a dress that I really really love.
Did you get to take pictures of you in them, maybe that will help you make up your mind.

I originally thougth I wanted a fit and flare dress that was all lace. I tried a few on and although I still LOVE lace dresses in photos, they all looked like my grandma’s curtains on me. I also wanted something light and cool, as my wedding will be outside and it could end up being 35C. Anyway, I ended up with the basic shape that I was after, but my dress is made from shimmer satin and it weighs a ton! 🙂

I didn’t vote because I’m not sure what the out come will be, but I can tell you my vision has changed back and forth. I started out thinking I wanted a big/poofy dress. . . till I put one on. Those suckers are heavy. For an outdoor reception I need to be able to move around, so I’ve started looking at more streamlined/A-line dresses. But then I changed the ceremoney time to later, so I felt like I needed to be more formal, so I went back to the bigger gowns. At this point I think I’m looking for a sleek lace gown with some flair, but not much. We’ll see what happens when it’s all said and done.
Good luck with your shopping.

I had from day one pictured myself in an a-line gown, simple, chic and with a splash of color. I ended up having to chose between the Alfred Angelo 2118 and the Maggie Sottero RD1044. Neither were a-line and neither all that simple. I ended up having to chose between feeling like a bride (although not all the traditional) and feeling like a goddess.

I don’t think I can vote. I always imagined Grace Kelly and Ball Gown. I wound up in a modern mermaid. But, I’m about to buy my original love because my vision isn’t coming together at all and I don’t like what I see… lol
