I was looking through bridal mags for dress ideas, and fell in love with this one dress. I never even tried any on, I just ordered this one, guessed at my size (I’ve never worn Ann Taylor). I love it!! I need it taken in a little in the waist, and to have the back adjusted because it puckers a bit, but other than that it’s perfect. We’re getting married on a ship, so I wanted to wear flats, and it even came in petite!! I’m 5’2″.
Sorry for the cell pics:
ETA – What do you think of adding something at the waist? My colors are black, ivory, and pale pink/blush (Alfred Angelo’s Tea Rose Pink). Maybe a thin pink ribbon with a bow?
And PLEASE excuse my awful bathroom floor. We’re remodeling.

You look stunning! You are very brave for ordering without trying on, but it certainly had a great outcome

@Jlee28: Thank you 😀
Their return policy is easy, and I figured I’d only be out around $40 for shipping both ways. It was the only dress I saw that I liked, I’m sooooo thrilled I don’t have to go to a salon. I’m so indecisive, all those choices would be hard.

Pretty dress! I think adding a sash is a good idea, it will accentuate your waist a bit more. What about a jewelled sash, I think that would look really nice.

So pretty!!!! You look great! I voted for a pink ribbon, I think it matches the romantic feel of the dress, and doesn’t detract from the beautiful lace.

I vote for a neutral/ blingy sash. I’ve never really liked brides wearing sashes that match their bridesmaids but I’m not sure why. Maybe its because I don’t completely love it when things are matchy matchy. The dress looks perfect for you btw!

I’m not really into blingy/sparkly. I had a hell of a time finding matte ivory shoes! I don’t want anything shiny or any jewels. It’s just not me.
After I posted this, looking at the dress on me again, I think it just needs a little something…

I was thinking something like this

Or this, but not in the center, off to the side more

The dress is lovely! I love the lace and I think a thin pink ribbon would be great!

I think a blush or ivory jeweled belt like this one would be adorable. A lot of times they show those kind of belts on say yes to the dress and I love them! I wish my dress would allow me to wear a belt but unfortunately it would look weird if I did.

You look fantastic in this dress! I’m for a jeweled belt like mentioned above. 🙂
