I consider my dress a ‘big’ dress, and no one in my family wanted me to get it. I think the main thing is that you feel beautiful in your dress, and that’s all that matters.

 

this is my dress:

i disagree, i think there are many people on here that are all about the ballgown!  never let anyone make you feel dumb 🙂  my dress wasn’t a huge big gown, but it was sorta “princessy” and definitely strapless!  do you have a pic of your dress to share??  here’s mine:

I love my stapless ballgown. Here’s a pic! I love that it is timeless, classy, and has a bit of sex appeal. Plus, what other time will I be able to wear a cathedral train? Don’t second guess yourself!!

I also love other more evening wear like wedding gowns. Of course, I just felt like there would be other times for me to wear dresses like that.

@Kemi82Justice of the Peace: I LOVE your dress! Who’s it by? You look gorgeous in it!

 

@Belle2Be: In the end I was between that dress, and another a-line dress. Everyone wanted me to choose the a-line because it was more ‘slimming’ and figure flattering. That’s kind of the complete opposite of the ball gown I ended up choosing haha.

I loved my big dress and everyone at the wedding love it!

I feel like there is a negative connotation surrounding ballgowns; however, I loved every minute I spent in my dress and would do it again in a second!

Dont worry, ballgowns are just not trendy at the moment.  The mermaid gowns with tons of rouching are in style.  Personaly I dont like rouching but it looks good on a lot of people.  I think it is difficult to find a flattering ballgown.  However, to me, ballgowns feel more timeless.  As long as you like your dress it doesnt matter and most the people at your wedding wont even know the trends in wedding gowns these days.
