I LOVE LOVE LOVE how each bee finds a dress that is just right for them. It is so fun seeing a bride’s journey to the dress that is just perfectly ‘her’.
What I’m curious about is if you dress is very much in keeping with the way you dress in your everday life or if you really wanted a departure from how you dress?
I can totally see the value in either route but I choose to look like my usual style. I have a very defined look that focuses on clean lines, v-necks, wrap/twist elements to highlight my waist/ and interesting texture. That’s exactly the kind of dress I got.
What made your dress ‘you’?

I don’t ever wear dresses, so the fact that it’s a dress is VERY differant than how I dress.
However, the blingy/princessness of my dress is very me. My family would describe me as a sparkle princess.. bling on my keychains, bling on my phone. Pretty normal for me.
I love all things sparkly and girly!

Very much my style! Simple and plain, no sparkle, no nothing! I LOVE fancy dresses and I had a blast trying them on, but they weren’t ‘me’.

When I was in high school I wore a corset every day and occasionally a bustled skirt.
My wedding dress was a modern-Victorian gown with a built-in corset, and 10 ft train. My family couldn’t get over how “me” it was!
That being said, I never wear strapless OR drop waist! So that was definitely new to me!

I live in jeans, t-shirts, and cardigan. So it actually being a dress was definitly a departure from my normal style. My dress is fairly simple with a little bit of detail, so in that way it is my style.

Well, I’m not very fancy, so I wouldn’t say it’s “me” but I think it’s the closest I could get.
I didn’t want the satin type of dress because i thought it was too formal and fancy for me though, so i went with the tulle type of skirt.
Thing is I’m not very plain, but i’m not very blingy. I like wearing skirts and dresses in the summer though, but i’m not fancy. lol I’m just more complicated haha
The skirt is very fun….which is more “me”

My dress is not at all what I thought I wanted. I thought I wanted a natural waist ball gown with straps and decorated with lace appliqué – I ended up with a strapless figure hugging trumpet dress with a ruffled skirt and enormous train. That said, all of my friends have commented on how “me” it is. Apparently I am known for loving clothes which have a slightly quirky twist 😉 I also nearly always wear things which are fitted at the waist because that’s most flattering ony body shape.

Very much my style; short (not full length, at least), fit and flared. All of my friends thought it was very “me”!

I always thought that i would wear a princess-like ballgown. That is not what I ended up picking at the end of the day. Its more like a mermaid/fit and flare. BUT i am totally thrilled with my choice!
Its nice that people will see me in a dress that no one expects.

@PinkStripes: “Special Snowflake” is how you make fun of someone who thinks everything they do is unique/quirky/totally individual (Since no two snowflakes are alike, and Special Snowflakes think they’re totally unique). In a sentence: “Yeah, she writes poetry on the side and doesn’t carry a phone because they’re “too mainstream”. She’s a Special Snowflake!”
But I do have awesome posture, haha!

Yes, definitely my style. Low-key but still kinda hot (I hope?! Definitely fitted – my guy wanted something that was tight on the ass, haha.) But not poofy or overly dramatic. And simple enough that I could dress it up with boho-chic accessories.

@nocleverbeepun: While I know how to properly dress myself, most of the time I’m in jeans and a tshirt. So in that regard, it’s a departure. However, it suits by personality to a T.
