You should totally post photos!  The adorae is a magical dress. 

A lot of brides go the other way, myself included.  I was totally in love with Pronovias Fina and Formentera, both are fit and flares with textured skirts.  Even tried them on but totally wasn’t sold.  I loved ruffle-y bottoms partcularly organza ones.  I tried on so many but could never commit.  Finally I tried on my gown, Puma, and was smitten.  It’s a silk charmeuse sheath.  No fit and flare no textured skirts!

Me! Reaaaaallly wanted a lace dress with sleeves, but couldn’t afford it. Ended up going with a very simple jcrew strapless dress…and I’m making my Bridesmaid or Best Man wear the lace dresses with sleeves :p

Happened to me too! I went on several appointments and trided on fluffy princess dresses. Then finally my mom and grandma had the consultant pull this ivory/champagne all over lace trumpet gown. It was perfect!

Also, that dress looks so pretty on you!

YUP. Thought I wanted an a-line or ball gown, actually BOUGHT, then sold an Anne Barge dress and purchased a mermaid style dress, which was the complete opposite of what I thought I wanted. It goes to show, that you really should TRY on ALL styles of dress before you commit!

Pronovias- Tried on

Anne Barge- BOUGHT & SOLD

Ended up with Jenny Lee mermaid!

@ddavila2001:  I love the one you ended up going with!  I prefer it much over the others!
