I’m having some dress regret, I absolutely loved this dress when I tried it on… and now seeing other peoples dresses it makes me feel like mine is too plain.
This is my dress, and I got this sash in white to wear with it too, and I think i’m going to have the neckline made into a sweetheart.
The only photo I have of me in the dress is the sample which was a size 8, and I measured a 12.
Anybody else wear/wearing Alfred Angelo 214, please show me your pictures and help me fall in love again??

@lanf5046: I didn’t have an Alfred Angelo but I think your dress is beautiful! ESP with the sparkly sash! It’s elegant with a little sparkle- timeless and classy. I think you will be very happy when you see your wedding pics in that dress!

@lanf5046: I didn’t wear that exact dress, but I wore something similar to it. Simple, rouched, mermaid fit. Honestly I wasn’t too terribly sure at first, but after seeing the pictures and having my dress on that day, I couldn’t have been more sure of my choice.
I know in 20 years when I look back on our wedding photos, I won’t have to explain to our kids that the reason my dress looked so different was because “that was the trend”. It’s simple, timeless, and elegant. Everything that I knew that I wanted to be as a Bride.
Your dress is stunning and I KNOW you will look amazing in it!

That dress is gorgeous, and the sash gives it a nice oomph. Sometimes I really think that less is more! Also, simple yet elegant would be a great term here. I feel like the dress that you fell in love with and felt great in is the dress for you, no matter what everyone else’s looks like. And besides, I sincerely doubt the people that love you are going to look at your dress and go, “Oh, how plain” they’re going to go, “Oh, my! You are sooo lovely!!! That dress is AMAZING!”
I just wish I had to bod to pull that style off 😉

I felt the same way about my dress, so I went out and bought a lot of blingy embelishments to add to it and I’m feeling way better about it.

@SeaTurtle88: Thank you! Super sparkly isn’t really me, but hearing other brides talk about wanting that “wow factor” really made me think whether mine had one. I guess it kind of does with the sash! haha
@PacificMrs: Thanks! Your dress is beautiful! I’m a sucker for sweetheart necklines, I feel like they soften up the look!

@lanf5046: It’s a lovely dress! I often think that very attention grabbing dresses detract from the person (at least they did on me). I went for a very, very simple dress, and am going to bling it up with a badass necklace and head piece. The sash will look great, and with a bit of jewellery etc it’ll look perfect and not overwhelming 🙂

@lanf5046: They really do and thank you! And if you really feel like it’s TOO plain, then you can always get some statement earrings to go along with it.

I think with a headpiece, necklace/earrings and a coloured sash it’d be beautiful. I really LOVE this style of folded dress at the bottom (sorry I don’t know the correct term). So elegant!!

I didnt end up getting it because my wedding plans changed for the millionth time but here is a pic of me in it. I am a size 12. I loved how lightweight it was. Very easy to move in.

I think sometimes a plain dress really gives you a chance to stand out. My hair really popped with this dress but with another gown it would probably be too much. Now you get to play with accessories!!!!

@nanikoa: It looks fantastic on you! I hope once mine is altered it will look half as good on me!
I get what you mean with the hair, mine is super thick and naturally curly so I really wanted to keep it at least half down for the wedding. The more I think of it, a more blingy dress would have take away from my hair (which I love!).

@lanf5046: I think its simple but elegant. The sash is very pretty. Can you add some sparkle to the top?
