UK-bee:  why not make the dress with a detachable skirt? Remove the skirt after the ceremony. That way you’ll have your big skirt for the ceremony and the fitted gown to dance the night away. 🙂

UK-bee:  I didn’t even try on ballgown dresses, or anything similar. I wanted something I knew I could move in that showed a little shape. I loved some of the sheath dresses I tried on since they were SO light! But, ending up going with a fit and flare, which was perfect.

That being said, a friend ofmine got married last spring and her ballgwon dress was amazing on her. It was mainly tulle on the bottom, which allowed for it to not be as heavy as some.

My dress is very “me”. It is fitted to the hip, but trumpet at the bottom with a huge train so I still get the ball gown effect from the back. When it is bustled it looks like a different dress!! I never tried on ball gown because I want Fiance to be able to get very close to me. I say do what makes your heart sing, no regrets. If it helps, I didn’t have the yes to the dress moment while shopping…I just knew it made my body look amazing. When I went in for my first fitting, I realized the dress was truly ME!

Samputs:  Not a bad idea, especially if you’re (UKbee) is having something custom-made. I see all the latest bridal catwalk stuff features detrachable skirts. Kind of cool but hasn’t filtered to the shops yet!

UK-bee:  Yes, but not a big long one. I think I’ll decide once the dress arrives!
