I have been to about 6 stores, and have been mainly looking at styles that incorporate lace, v-necks, and a trumpet/fit & flair. At each store, I’ve found a couple that I like, but have been narrowing even those down once I’ve seen others. At first it was more browsing to see what was available, but now that I have been to many stores and have tried on many dresses… I think I am ready to decide! I am either going up to the store tonight (it’s an hour away), or on Sunday to make my decision and hopefully say “yes!”. Unfortunately, I do not have pics of me in the dress as the place wouldn’t allow it, so I’ll just post a pic.
It’s a Jasmine, from their Spring 2014 line. The back is sheer lace, which I do like. The back also has these drape things on it, but they’re detachable and wouldn’t wear them.
Jasmine also has a similar style (F161011), and will also try that one on again as well – pictured below. I prefer the one pictured above, but like how the lace is at the end of the below dress verus not being there… but, it isn’t a deal breaker.

Kacie209: Wow!! Two beautiful dresses! I love the first one, although I’d also prefer the lace scalloped edge…. Can you take photos once you have bought the dress?

Kacie209: your dress is beautiful! Maybe you can ask for a customization to make the lace go further down? Either way it’s classic and beautiful. Will they let you take pics once you buy it?? It would be exciting to see! (Also I find it helps me plan accessories easier to refer back to my phone pics.. The hair, makeup, and cake vendors all asked to see it too so they could get a feel for the mood/look).

Astra: serendipity24: Thank you! I normally am drawn to dresses with this sort of neckline, so it’s perfect for me. Plus, both are light and I had no problem moving around – which was a plus (I need to dance!).
I am going to ask to see about customizing the bottom, so it’s lace all the way around. If they can do it, great – if not… again, not a deal breaker.
Yes, once I buy it I can take a lot of pics. I did take some sneakily in the changing room on my phone, but the back was unbuttoned and it wasn’t that flattering for the top… still pretty though. I’ll for sure post them when I can! I am going up there Sunday to try on again. 🙂

Kacie209: I love both but the second with the extra bling around the bust is my fav… I love seeing different necklines besides strapless, which I ended up with myself too btw lol…this dress is gorgeous, timeless yet has a little modern punch too!

Love the first dress. If you’ll need to hem the dress, the first one will probably be easier to hem (read: cheaper) so you might consider that in your decision.

You should try Karelina Sposa C7872
It sounds similar to the style you want!
It was going to be my dress before I went for a ballgown.

Kacie209: Love the style, though two is my favourite as it’s got more lace.

They are both pretty. I love it that it has the lace up top. I love a little more coverage than strapless offers. Theose are both really elegant!

Kacie209: Yay a Jasmine bride 🙂 Not too many of us on WB! I love both dresses but the second is my favorite!! Can’t wait to see pictures of you in it!

Gorgeous gowns! I prefer the first one, I don’t like the the beaded underbust detail so much – I think it disrupts the lines of the gown.

Kacie209: They are gorgeous!! Honestly do not know which I like better! I would pick whichever one you feel most beautiful in! you can’t go wrong either way. Do you mind me asking what the price range for these dresses are? I’m still looking for a dress and I’m going for a style similar and I love their designs!

Boston_MrsS_to_be: From this particular salon, the first one is around $900, and the second (according to another salon I saw it at, and don’t remember what this salon has it for) was about $1,200. I wanted to stay under $1K, or at least try to… so when I saw that the first one was under that amount – I was excited. Plus, the store has a promotional of $100 off so that is even better!
I am going to another salon tomorrow morning to check out what they have so I know that I have ruled everything out, but am pretty sure when I revisit the salon with these dresses on Sunday – I’ll know. That first dress pictured is exactly what I was looking for in terms of style, and felt and looked great on. 🙂
