I know this dress is discontinued (I bought mine last year and will wear it this May) but I would LOVE it if anyone has photos from their wedding in their CT229 gown!!! I am having trouble picking out flowers that I like with it – I wanted yellow but I don’t know if yellow goes with the ivory/champagne…?
Also, at my dress fitting last night I freaked and had them put straps on it – two on each side. I felt like a huge flesh monster since I wasn’t able to lose the weight I thought i would. I actually really like how it looks and I’m WAY more comfortable (I have big tatas). Anyone else go with straps on their strapless?

Do you have any pictures from your fitting? I would love to see your dress!

I’m also a CT229 girl! I periodially do a search, and I am so exited that I found this post!! I am doing blue flowers (hydrangeas) with likely some champagne colored roses or something. I’m not a pink type of girl, but pinks would look nice with it as well! I think pale yellow would work, especially since you are having a May wedding.
I LOVE the dress, and it’s nothing I thought I would get! I hadn’t considered straps, but perhaps I should…hmmm….something to think about. Post some pics!!!! I’ll take some at my next fitting, too.

I just purchased this dress on clearance at Davids Bridal this weekend. YAY! I LOVE it, my only problem is that the jacket will not fit me. the dress is a size 14W but my arms are very big and I need to find a matching jacket in a larger size (maybe a 20?) does anyone have a jacket that they would be willing to sell separately from their dress???? pleeeease!!!!!!

I just bought this dress Saturday! It was the only one in David’s Bridal b/c it was discontinued. It was originally $1,050 but we paid $299 for it!!!!!! I LOVE this dress! I’m actually thinking of putting straps or cap sleeves on it just b/c I don’t feel as comfortable with strapless. I’m doing pink and white hydrangeas with a few sage green flowers thrown into the bouqets.

I wore the champagne and ivory version of this dress. I wish I had another reason to wear the dress, I loved it! My bouquet was made of very light pink peonies, pink roses and white ranunculus. The dress has a lot going on so I just wanted a little bit of color (pink) without greens.
