    Initially I thought I’d just like quite a small-trained dress, but then I realised that I probably wouldn’t get another chance to wear a dress with a bit of business like that at the bottom!

    When er first got engaged I was thinking “no veil” but then, as you said, I realised that I really like them and when else will you ever have the chance to wear one?

    I also went for a slightly fuller dress for the same reason. I wanted it to feel like a wedding dress, not an evening dress. Again, I will have chances to wear a nice gown again but a wedding gown with a train and tulle skirt? Not so much. 🙂 A full ballgown would have been too much for my personal taste though.

    I didn’t think I wanted a veil until the store put one on me…now I’m coming around – I might pull a ceremony/reception headpiece switch.

    I’m also wearing white at every chance I get, white for the engagement party, shower, bachelorette, rehearsal – let me at the white(ish) dresses!

    I voted expensive shoes. 

    I came across these stunning jeweled sandals on pintrest by Giuseppe Zanotti & fell in love instantly.

    A wedding dress? I think that will distinguish me enough 😉

    I never really concerned myself with the train.  I wanted a dramatic back.  But I was very anti veil.  Well you can guess what I ended up wearing? Lol

    @RainStorm:  Mine’s the veil and train; nothing else I’m wearing is different to what I might wear anyway eg I own a lot of evening dresses and designer shoes, and costume jewellery, etc. But a train is just not really something I could wear at any other time, likewise a veil. I’m really excited about both; which is funny, because I didn’t think I wanted either at first lol

    I’m getting my short train cut off. We are having a small casual wedding and I don’t want to deal with busseling or anytihng…and i’m not wearing veil…seems too formal for our celebration. I’m just wearing a sparkly hair clip.

    Big white gown. (not huge or puffy compared to wedding dresses in general though).

    I was thinking of wearing a tiara or tiara-like headpiece (I don’t at all care that they’re not trendy right now) but the hairstyle I think I want doesn’t really suit that. So, pretty much a big white gown. And holding a bouquet…also something I don’t normally accessorize with 🙂
