    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.

    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.

    @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.
