Okay. I need some feedback. When don’t I need some feedback? But I trust you bees, and know that you’ll help me out.
I don’t live near my parents, but went up for a week. Four days with J (long weekend) and three days after he left. On Wednesday, my mom and I went dress shopping. For six and a half hours. At three stores. I tried on close to 70 dresses, I would guess. Yep, you read that right.
I’m not stylish. I don’t dress up. I’m not the girl who dreamt of her wedding from age seven. I have no freaking idea what I want in a dress, except that I don’t want it to be sparkly – so most beading is out. Otherwise, I was willing to try on anything.
About half of the ones I felt were ‘photo worthy’ are out of my price range — which is $400 including alterations, if anyone is keeping track — but there’s a chance I’ll have a dress made in China (I live there most of the year), so I guess I can work with that.
Here they are, in no particular order… let me know what you think!
I didn’t get even remotely emotional, despite everyone telling me that the first time you put a wedding dress on, something magical is supposed to happen (kind of disappointed, because now I have to choose a dress, haha, if I’d cried, it would’ve been easier). SO I need your help in deciding which styles look best on me, if one of these is worth buying, or if I should keep looking (and if so, where?).

I really like dresses 3, 6, and 7! You look great in all of those and I’m surprised that you could get them for that price…if so, that’s awesome!

Wow that’s a lot of dresses! You look beautiful in so many it’s hard to choose. I think that you look great in the v neck style. I particularly like #3 with just the detailing under the bust. It’s simple but elegant. They are all so different so I think you just need to think more about what you’d like to wear lace, beading, etc … If you are thinking of getting it made in China then you can incorporate elements from all these dresses.

I think the 4th is adorable on you. I love the fit and the structure of the dress, and I think your short hair only makes it better! Just my opinion. Do any of them feel like “you”?
P.S. I did’nt cry or get emotional when I found my dress, I just felt beautiful, elegent and giddy 🙂 I think your reaction depends on your personality.

I typically LOVE v-neck styles but I loved #4 and #7, the spaghetti strap (which I NEVER choose but I think it looks great on you) and the strapless with the inverted pleats in the skirt. Runners up for me would be 1 and 3. Really, you’re lucky because so many of them look great!

I like the first dress and the last dress in your last post!

I love 2,4 and 7. 2 is definitely my fave because it’s so flattering and different. THe only one I don’t like is the last one in the second set, and it’s not you, it’s just I think that style looks night-gownish.

I like #s 2, 3 and 5 of the first set. I think they looked awesome with your figure. Great pics!

Oh! #2 and #5 in the second set are also great…as is #1 in the 3rd set. What type of wedding are you having? Venue? Colors? Atmostphere?
