- Wedding: September 2013
Since I do not think about me as a typical bride, I always thought I would be getting married in a simple, kind of flowy dress and definitely not in white. I have also been looking at lots of gowns on the internet and had a list of what I didn’t want. – Last week I went dress shopping with my best friend. This was is disastrous experience, since they only had one gown which was roughly what I was looking for and I did not feel good throughout the entire experience. (I tried on a couple of wedding gowns as well as different colors of evening dresses.)
The one dress I sort of liked was a simple off-white (sorry, I am not good with all those different tones of white) chiffon a-line, empire gown with a straight neckline and two ~2 inch straps. Underneath the chiffon was a layer made out of a thicker fabric to ensure the form of the dress. This also helped that my bigger size did not show through the thinner chiffon. The dress had also lots of crystal beading and a chiffon flower in the front which is something I definately do not want.
Decided on the kind of gown I am looking for I went on the internet again and then fell in love with the Nierga Pronovias gown. The silhouette of the dress beneath the lace is definately the dress I am looking for and I do love the lace. Although I never tought this would be my kind of dress. After reading along with the posts in this forum I found Jasmines Bridal Shop and their work. Unfortunately they do not accept order any more right now, so I probably have to go somewhere else. Any recommendations? I would also like to change some things about my dream gown, but do not know if they are possible. I hope that some of you can help me with those decisions.

I love those floor length flowy gowns without a train. Is it possible to combine those two styles? I would also like to have a non shiny dress. Beneath the lace in the Nierga is a satin layer. How could this be replaced?
Thank you so much for your help and sorry for my imperfect English as I am a non-native speaker.
