I was looking at a lot of the more formal MOB dresses that have trains. I was adamant about not wearing white. I ended up with a non-white Maggie Sottero though. The only traditional wedding dress details I badly wanted were a train and buttons. I’ll be adding buttons to mine…

This is mine by Needle & Thread. BHLDN has picked up the line now but Net-a-Porter and Asos carried it as a formal gown, not a “wedding dress”.

LOVE the two you posted. I bought a white and gold Adrianna Papell gown. I’ve looked a lot, and it seems like the only thing you can really only get in wedding gowns (and not in off-the-rack gowns) is a train. I don’t want a train, so I’m much happier with my (much, much cheaper) off-the-rack gown.

Ambi D:  Thank you! If you got something really architectural like you posted, a removable train would likely look awesome.

I considered a few non-wedding dresses but ultimately decided against them! I would’ve gone with one if I’d found the right one though…

By The Way, I love those two you posted! They are so stylish! I couldn’t pull them off, but I would love it if I saw a bride wearing something like that. Please, please, please post photos after you try them on!

kkkatieB12:  too funny! And I just tried on the dress you picked out the other day. It didn’t look good on me but I love it!

I eloped and wore a strapless white sun dress. 🙂
