I just wanted to let you all know that I just bought my wedding gown (Demetrios, style GR163) about a half hour ago. I LOVE it! Imagine this in an ivory (really? why would they put a picture of a BLUE dress online? seriously!) Here’s my new gown!!!!!!!
I’m most likely taking those flowers off and adding a bow. This next gown is kinda my inspiration (THANK YOU Mrs. Espresso!). Since they have to hem the above there will be enough to make a bow.
I LOVE how romantic, soft, and simple it is. I tried on SO many that had bling and while they looked great on me, they just weren’t "me." So anyway, this what it will look like even more:
(Muchas gracias to this photo posted in the gallery by Mrs. Espresso!!!)
I’m so excited and really don’t want to wait till next February to wear it!!!

Oh, it’s gorgeous! I hear you on the bling issue…I learned early in my dress hunt that interesting fabrics and silhouettes were what worked best on my body! I love how the fabric on your dress has so many differnt textures — pick-ups, ruching, etc. And that skirt looks so full! Will you use a crinoline underneath, or something more to keep the shape?

Beautiful dress! I like the idea of adding a bow and removing the flowers, they kind of take away from the overall effect. Congratulations!

@Bruschetta: That’s a good question! I’ll need to find out if getting a crinoline would be an overkill or if what’s already attached to the dress will be enough.
@Beagle: It’s funny because my dad really likes the flowers on it and my grandma hates them. I think I’m nixing them though!
Oh my! I’m just so excited. It’s not fair that we only get to wear these for less than an entire day!

I think that dress is going to be gorgeous on you! Congratulations! I lvoe the changes, the addition of the bow would be so cute. I’m the same way, I am disappointed that I only get to wear my dress for one day!!

Some brides dig color dresses, so it’s nice that designers display options. I had a friend that wore a blue dress.
That dress is gorgeous and I think it will be even more awesome when you make your changes. Congrats!

Oh my goodness~your dress is absolutely amazing!! You’re gonna look great! And it does suck that we only get to wear these once…unless you wanted to wear it for Halloween or something 🙂 hehe
