- Wedding: September 2011
Hi all , I am new to this board but I’ve been lurking around and reading some of the posts and this site is great for all brides to be!
I am going to get married in May 2012…and yes I know its sometime until then , however I already ordered my dress two weeks ago. I started looking for THE dress this summer because I am moving away from my family next year and wanted to have this experience with my family and especially my mom. I will be moving to where my FI lives (we are in a long distance relationship at the moment).
I’ve fell inlove with a dress and still in love with it , because it was excatly what I wanted and pictured my self in. I am a very simple girl and wanted to wear a simple yet elegant gown on my wedding and yet to be modern and doesn’t look dated.
I went to most of the Bridal stores near where I live and I tried many gowns that some I liked but werent the one. However, one day I go in this small bridal store and had tons of gowns. I was looking for a modern ball gown with simple touches. While I was walking looking at the gowns in plastick bags. The lady was pulling what looked like the pics I had with me and then I see this gown hanged up somewhere and looked so elegant and beautiful even in the plastic bag! The lady pulled it as well and she said that I am going to love this gown because it looks like the style that I am looking for. In the end , YES it was the dress that I was looking for.
The dress was Alfred Angelo style 2119 from the priave collection of this year. I decided to go to an Alfred Angelo store to try it on again and see what else they have. I went there on a last day of a big sale and on top of that the dress at the signature store was cheaper to begin with! I love the dress and its so me in everyway. I am not doubting my decision except that I got the dress too early.
I’ve been reading articles and watching videos online about the style of dresses in 2011 and they are pretty much the same as this year. Natural waist , simplicity , bows , modern touches , pockets, and florals ( which my dress has floral beadings on the waist). I think I’ve accomplished that and not have to worry about it looking dated at all on my wedding.
Here is a pic of the dress, I will post pics of me in the dress when the dress arrives , for now this is a pic of the runway show and it will also be in Diamond white/ivory.
