I was 10-ish, but okay. Julia Roberts’ dress in Runaway Bride. I thought the sleeves/whatevers were amazing.

My dad was given a box of choclates and on the top of the box was an image of a man and a woman dancing a waltz or something. The woman was wearing this navy blue, natural waist, southern bell like dress… looked like taffeta…. it took my breathe away and it still does!!! I am still in love with the natural waist, very full skirt ball gown πŸ™‚ Think scarlett O’hara πŸ™‚ Perhaps not as full as the southern bell’s…my dad does need to fit beside me down the aisle!!

I always pictured a wedding dress that was soft, flowy and umpire waist.  Like something out of a Jane Austen book. Something like this.

Cinderella”s dress!  My favorite disney movie as a child.  Even as I got older I always thought I wanted a big princess dress.  Unfortunately at 5’2” I think I would have looked silly in a big princess ball gown

I was born in the 80’s.  Mine was a silky sheath dress with a very low back (almost to my butt) and spaghetti straps that wrapped around my shoulders.  I think it was pretty “a head” of my time because most people wanted really poufy dresses.  I wish I could still wear a sheath dress but I’m not as comfortable with my body as I figured I would be when I was 12.  I’m more curvy.  However, suprisingly I did buy a mermaid fit.

I know this is a recent style, but I am young. My dress style changed completely though as my wedding dress was a semi a-line with sequence.

 Ahhhh, where’d my words go? Anyways, I never had a “dream” dress but when we first got engaged and for a while I always wanted one like the first picture or a all lace form fitting gown. But then my style just changed as in what I liked and then what I liked on me, if that makes since! lol
