I bought a preowned Pnina Tornai ball gown online so technically the woman that I purchased it from would be my dress twin lol However, other than her, I couldn’t find any pictures of any other real life brides with the same dress. The only other pictures I could find of anyone wearing my dress was the stock photo on the Kleinfeld website. I’m still surprised that my dress is not one of her more popular dresses. In my opinion, it’s one of her more tasteful designs.

quetal87:  It funny as I only have one picture of me in it and tons of all the other dresses I tried on. I am sorry everyone if its so big… I don’t know how to take it down in size. (ps. I won’t be wearing the belt that I have on in the picture.)

It will be the perfect dress for your July 23rd wedding because it will be so light and airy. I thought all along that I wanted lace, form fitting and with straps but all the those dresses were so hot and heavy. 

I am getting married on July 16th, so 1 week prior but we are almost wedding twins  !! 

I am excited for it to come in so that I can accesorize it. I have no idea what to do for jewelery. 

How are you dressing it up?

msgryffindor:  You look stunning in it! I have no idea how I want to accessorize it, but I think I want to go simple. I love all of the details and the pinstripes- I feel like they speak for themselves. My belt has a little bling and I’m going to do a simple necklace probably. Also want to do light makeup- go for a romantic look over dramatic πŸ™‚ What are your thoughts?

I haven’t been able to find ANY pictures of my dress besides the designers photos on the website. I found it at a trunk show and I think it’s from the newest collection so I’m guessing that’s why. It’s the Sincerity (by Justin Alexander) line, style 3866.  I plan on adding a rhinestone belt and possibly some type of straps.

quetal87:  I agree, I think simple is better. 

I was also thinking romantic… with a touch of fun. Our colors are pinks and gold and navy and we have a subtle Kate Spade theme (like confetti, hot pink and giant balloons).

What belt are you wearing with it? I am literally spend hours looking at belts online and I can’t decide what I want. I know I want one, I just have no idea what is should look like.

Are you wearing a veil? I bought a plain cathedral length tulle veil that I will probably wear just for the ceremony. Simple again. Are you wearing your hair up or down?

Havent seen mine anywhere else either, not even designers photos! I bought from a factory outlet, they didn’t even do this one in another size, so I think I’ve got an end of season dress.  Would be nice to see someone else in the same one πŸ™‚

msgryffindor:  I tried PMing you so we don’t dominate this thread with our ideas πŸ™‚ I couldn’t figure it out!!! My bridesmaids dresses are in a color called “hint of mint” – borderline white with a touch of color. The place we are getting married at is a beach club and their colors are white/coral/orange… those colors might be in the background of a lot of our shots. I wanted the colors to compliment the place. My color scheme is going to be the mint, yellows/oranges. Our reception is also a building that is all glass overlooking the ocean so I don’t want too much color.

Personally, I love love love the Kate Spade look too- that’s what I wanted when we started to plan and my fiance was like… that’s too preppy for me… I guess I couldn’t plan the entire wedding around what I wanted πŸ˜‰ haha

The belt I’m wearing with it is in my picture. I was stuck between two ideas but decided to go with a simple rope belt:

How bad do you want to put it on every day? I’m going shoe shopping today with my mom and I might find a way to swing into a nordstroms to touch it hahaha

You ladies look gorgeous in your dresses!

I recently changed dresses but was never able to find a dress twin for my original dress (Sophia Tolli Alma) and still can’t. New dress is Watters’ Edlin.

I am fairly convinced I DONT because I bought my dress at my local mall off the rack from a evening gown type store. So unless you are a bride from Mississauga ON, Canada and Shopped at Square One mall this past summer and bought your dress at Stockhomme, I think I am alone on this one :-p

I can’t find any pictures of anyone besides the model in my dress, and it’s been in the collection for a couple years now! Maggie Sottero Vanja. I am someone who always needs to be ‘different’, so that suits me fine, although it would be cool to see how others look in it since I was much more impressed with this dress on my body than I was in the stock photos… in fact I didn’t like it at all in the online photos and loved it in person. I will be changing the neckline and adding buttons to it, so even if other brides get it, mine will be unique πŸ™‚

AutumnRose781:  yep! Watters calls the color “oatmeal” but it’s pretty much blush.

I havent found anyone with my dress either, but granted.. we are doing some serious alterations (slight change to neckline to make the sweetheart shape more dramatic, shortening the bodice so it no longer has the odd semi-drop waist, and adding blush tulle to the skirt)… so even if I found a dress twin, we’d probably look nothing alike in the end! Its a Wtoo Cheryl from the Fall 2015 collection, so fairly new. 

I think its heinious looking on the model and never would have even thought about trying it on, but the consultant brought me it at a Wtoo trunk show and mentioned shortening the bodice, and I fell in love after she pinned it up with the new waistline. 😑 Its SO stunning in real life!
