I’m wearing a ballgown and it’s totally not what I thought I wanted, until I put it on! The way I see it, how many times in your life can you get away with wearing a huge white ballgown? There will be chances to wear slinky, sexy dresses for other events in the future (just not white ones!).

I absolutely did NOT want a ballgown or anything of the kind…. and this is what I ended up with – and I LOVED IT!!!! If I had to do it all over again I would do it again – or find one with more poof lol

I ended up choosing my dress over the runner up because of the bigger skirt. I just thought it was more bridal, and that there was no other moment in my life that I’d be able to wear something that formal and “statment” like again.

@tseay: I must say that I do agree with you; we do have awesome taste 🙂 Maybe we were sisters in another life. We seem to be on the same track.
Ladies; all of your gowns are beautiful!!!
Thank you Belle2Be for posting a ballgown thread ; we don’t really seem to see a lot of them. It is nice to see others that are wearing them too 🙂

@GreenEyedMoon: I love the Justin Alexander gown and I think it would look fab with the coffee color incorporated into it.

for all you girls who have ball gowns, be proud! when else can we get away with wearing a gorgeous dress with a train and veil?! i don’t have a ball gown personally, but i think they’re beautiful and one of my girls had one for her wedding (maggie sottero) and she looked stunning. what matters is that you feel beautiful 🙂

My dress was a ballgown, but I ended up wearing it bustled the whole day because unbustled, it felt like too much dress for me. I loved wearing it. I didn’t want to take it off at the end of the night because I knew I would never be able to wear it again!

Thanks for starting the great thread–beautiful dresses.
While I liked mermaid/trumpets on me, I felt like this was my “last chance” to wear something with a poufy skirt. I also wanted something a little more traditional, so I ended up full-on ballgown with a good size crinnie too.

I know what you mean! I’ve been getting very “stuffy” remarks about my wedding gown. It is a DB dress which gets remarks on its own, I dont know why, but the dress is so lovely, so wonderfully beautiful that i just think they are just jealous.
Seriously big gowns are far more feminine and bridal flattering than ny other silhouette, IMO.
