Lovely bees, I know I’ve done this before but since my last poll post have decided to not go down the pre-owned route but trust JBS with recreating a beauty of a Vera Wang gown for me. Looking forwards to your thoughts on the following dresses. They would ALL be in IVORY!
Again, bit of background on our wedding and me: We’re having a church ceremony (Church of England, so not too conservative) followed by a reception in a funky marquee (one of the big tops with blue and white stripes) right by the sea. We’ll be taking photos at the beach and the whole reception will be really laid back and just good fun. I’m very tall (5″11), have a shoulder length blonde bob and tattoos on my arms and back. I fell in love with Vera’s dresses because they work so well with the tattoos and just don’t look like your standard wedding dress. Hubby-to-be will either be wearing a skinny midnight blue or black suit, Ryan Gosling style 🙂
Sooo, without further ado… let me introduce the girls!
Here is Kendall. I have actually tried her on and loved her. Gorgeous dress!
Numero 2: Karen. I also tried on Karen and she’s a stunner. Lots of brides add a ‘modesty piece’ on the front of the bodice.
Laura. Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to try her on and I don’t know what the strap going over the shoulder would look like on me as I haven’t tried on any dresses with asymmetrical details like it but OH MY she’s just so stunning!
Lisbeth. Another stunner I haven’t been able to try on. Especially love the back of it.
Hayley. I haven’t tried her on but love the playful petal details on the dress.
Looking forward to your thoughts lovely ladies!

Kendall or Karen are my favs. They have the most exquisite details.

cornwallbee2015: I like the Lisbeth! I would like Kendall, but I think that top layer of tutu looks weird.

Just based on jbs past performance, I’d say one of the last two. People haven’t had such great luck with those shorter layers around the waist; they never seem to get them quite right.

Actually the only one I’m not in love with is Hayley (and it may jist be the coloring. Otherwise they are all stunning.

I’ve seen JBS’s Hayley and they’ve done a pretty good job so I would go with that one

bossypants: Really? I asked my consultant and they said they never made a Hayley before. Do you have a link at all?
MeiFrancis: That’s really helpful, thank you!
Everyone else: Aaaah, maybe posting on here wasn’t the best idea, haha. I’m now more confused than ever! I’m gonna go back to the Vera boutique and try on the different styles (they have all my faves apart from Hayley).. I think it seems to be the only way to make up my mind!

cornwallbee2015: I love Kendall! I love the lace on the skirt, and since you are having it made through JBS you could see if they could make the back like Lisbeth.
