Running short on time to order a dress I scheduled appointments with 4 different bridal salons hoping for lots of choices. Did any of you find that you aren’t into the overall wedding dress looks? I passed through sooooo many dresses that just didn’t have the style I was looking for – too plain, too much stuff on them, too many bows, too poofy, too young looking, some NOT flattering at all – on anyone. I tried on 20 dresses probably.
Did you also notice that you had expensive taste on a smaller budget? I gravitated to dresses that were twice my budget – then struggled to steer myself back on track.
FINALLY – after 3 weeks of crazy bridal appointments, at the last shop, I was smitten with a dress that suited my vision to a T. Of course I had to order extra length (I am 6 feet tall) which added $200 to the cost (they punish you for height – stinks – rant..sorry!!)
After all this I am a Martina Liana, 346, bride! Are there any other Martina Liana brides out there? Pictures??? Did you shop for a long time to find your dress? Did you end up staying within your budget??

I love it! I fell for a lot of lace dresses when I was shopping, the are just so pretty! I had the same problem of my taste exceeding my budget – unfortunately this led to me not staying in my budget (oops!) but luckily I didn’t go too much over.
Anyway, your dress is gorgeous!

I totally agree with your comments above. i think i would have tried on move then 20 dresses and got to the point where i thought i would never find it but when i tried on Martina Liana 340…i knew it was the one. simply perfect. just working on the alterations now. did you ahve to do many alterations besides the length?
