New to the site, but I am loving it so far! My FI and I are getting married June 2, 2012 outside in a garden and doing a rustic/shabby chic wedding.
I have falling in love with a wedding gown, but I am nervous about purchasing it! I don’t know if it’s because I am afraid I won’t love it in a couple months, or its really not the one. Every other dress I have tried on hasn’t come close to this one.
Here is the dress. It is an Alvina Valenta lace dress. I am planning on making the skirt a “fit and flare” and changing the belt to be an organza material (even tho I love the belt the other one looks better on me)http://www.jlmcouture.com/Alvina-Valenta/Bridal/Spring/2011/Style-9102?linetype=&selected_designer=101&silhouette=&waist=&neckline=&page=1
Have any advice or input?

Beautiful! I love the details on it! It is nerve-racking to make the decision if nothing seriously blows you away. and you have that sobbing moment that I swear only happens on SYTTD. I had one heck of a time with that!

@FutureMrsBPB: Totally agree with the tears…I shed some tears along with my mother and MOH..but I was expecting a “say yes to the dress” moment! haha

I love the dress. I think you are just not hitting the button to make the purchase is because especially on the boards you here so much about dress regret. I think that it is a beautiful dress though and if you have fallen in love then get it.. Just dont cheat on your dress later lol
