- Wedding: August 2014
My mom and I are thinking of heading to AA for dress shopping. This will be the 2nd time I’m heading there. I was there a couple months ago and really love 3 of the dresses. While my mom thinks I should stick to DB, I feel like I would be settling. I didn’t settle when I found my man, why should I for my wedding dress?
Note that it’s an outdoor beach wedding and currently wear a US size 16-18 (planning to lose the weight before the wedding).
Anyway, here’s the 5 choices:
2314: Out off all the dresses I put on the 1st time, this dress surprised me. It was very flattering for my shape and had an element of being fun but sophisticated. In other words, it suits my personality. Not sure if mom will like the bottom.
#1136: Unlike the 1st dress, this is more traditional and princessy. I love the corset in the back (good thing AA gives you an option to having it laced back instead of zip up) and it’s flattering, but it’s satin. Good thing our tentitive ceremony time is late to avoid the heat, but I still don’t want sweat stains on my dress. I don’t know… it’s beautiful. My mom will love this one.
#1807: This dress I didn’t try on the first time but really want to this time around. I’m a huge fan of lace and though this would be really romantic to wear. It’s also an alternate to the pricier #801!
#801: The moment I lay eyes on that dress on the window display, I fell in love! Those feelings really came ahead when I put that dress on. Now, I’m not one of those who would cry over things like this, but this is the closest I’ve got to crying. Unlike DB’s version of this dress (sorry but that dress’ material looks cheap), the beading and the lace mesh well together. I am concern if this can be pulled off for a beach wedding. Anywhere else will be perfect. My mom also likes the dress from the display but still iffy because of the lace details.
#218 (aka the Sleeping Beauty dress): I saw this on a mannequin during my first visit and thought this dress was lovely. It’s organza, which is a plus, and had that level of romance. But I was concerned if this was only available in pink. When I found out it’s also available in white/ivory/diamond white, I want to add this to my list of dresses I want to try.
So what do you think of those 5? Which one you think will be beach wedding appropriate? Which one you think will suit my body? Should I stick to the DB dress I have in mind of purchasing? Here’s that DB dress, by the way.
