After going to 100 salons, I finally purchased my wedding gown yesterday! Yahhhh….
I went to the opposite of what I thought I wanted it.
I thought I would choose a ballgown, like this
But I end up with Romona Keveza lace dress
did you ladies have similar exerperience? Would love to know. BTW, this is a vedio of me in the dress

Mine is totally different!
I wanted a fitted lace dress like this, but realized it was terrible to walk it and I could not dance in it all night.
So I ended up with this A-line/ballgown. I figured how often do you get to wear a big dress?

I knew I wanted lace, but I was dead set on having sleeves – either long or short. I also adored the sleeved dresses key-hole backs. I wanted something a little fitted.
The first dress I tried on fit the bill perfectly – sleeves, key-hole back, fit and flare. I loved it.
But then I tried on MY dress, and I was smitten. It’s still lace and fit and flare, but it’s strapless, which I did not at all think I wanted. I look great in it though.

@MrsN14: oh, it seems we had the opposite direction, I thought i wanted ball gown, but realize that I don’t like the look on me. I have never liked lace, didn’t own anything lace, but I end up with a lace gown!
BTW, you dress is so beautiful! I still like that look, even thought it was not for me.

I knew I wanted something floaty, tea length, lacy, and demure. I ended up with exactly that. My mom was having a fit because, to her, it isn’t a wedding dress unless it puts Princess Diana’s to shame and not only did I go into the appointment saying “NO TRAINS” I ended up with a dress that didn’t even touch the floor.

I was interested in sheath and A line gowns. I said absolutely no mermaid or fit n flares. So after not really liking any of the dresses I tried on the woman made me try on some mermaids and I fell in love.

@fiona8718: I ended up completely opposite. Not only in the style, I really wanted a big tulle, ballgown. I ended up with a ballgown but not a big poofy one.
Some of the things I didn’t want:
1. SATIN ~ I didn’t like how shiney it was. I wouldn’t even try anything on that was satin.
2. Sweetheart neckline ~ I just wanted something different. It seems like a large marjority of dresses are sweetheart.
3. Strapless ~ I felt like I looked like a football player in strapless.
4. Asymmetrical ~ I’m very mildly OCD and if things aren’t straight or even it makes me twitch slightly. Not really, but it annoys me.
I ended up with ALL FOUR OF THESE THINGS and am still in shock, but I love my dress and the details that it has completely outweighs the ones I didn’t like.

@Trilly: Similar here. my mom wants me in a ballgown, or at least A line. I guess every mom wants to see her daughter as a princess. and I did try a lot of ball gown to please her, at the end, it’s just not for my style.
I am still try to talk her out of the ball gown idea, it may take awhile 🙂

@fiona8718: You look absolutely gorgeous in the that dress!! Way better than the model! You have the perfect body 🙂
My dress was everything I wanted plus some. I was looking for a simple/plain, sweatheart neckline, fit and flare with buttons down the back. Nothing sparkly or anything because I dont like glitter and all that shiny stuff lol. I ended up getting all of that PLUS the sparkle 🙂 I love it haha

Before I tried even one dress on I picked out the one I wanted online and I knew it would be the one I wore. I went to a few bridal boutiques first and saved my intuition dress for last. I put it on and it was “the one” – the exact dress I had picked out months earlier and knew I’d wear. I think a lot of it was that I know what cuts are flattering on me and I know what to stay away from.

@fiona8718: I, too, tried on a “full A-line” as the consultant called it. Looked like a ballgown to me! I’m not a small person. The dress made me the biggest thing in the room. You know those crochet toilet paper covers they put a Barbie doll torso on? That was me. I was a head, tits, and then 50lbs of dress.
Even my mom admitted I looked terrible in a poofy dress and I was right. I’m still reminding her she admitted I was right about something.
