I was 100% sure I wanted a slim, all over lace dress with straps. I tried this one on at David’s Bridal and loved it:


But then I went to another bridal shop and found this. It is a lot more plain than I had envisioned for myself, but this dress is absolutely GORGEOUS in its simplicity, and I feel stunning and amazing in it!

Oh, I love this thread!  I realize it’s been a while since anyone posted but I want to join in on the fun anyways…

This is the dress that made me fall in love with Maggie Sottero:

After pouring over the collection, this is what I thought I’d end up with:

And finally, this is what I ACTUALLY ended up with.  Not too far off, I guess!

Oooh what a fun thread!

I was sure I wanted a cap sleeve lace mermaid, and the Allure 9000 gave me chills! Also, I wanted something very simple, and absolutely NO poofy skirts:

…and I ended up with a sweetheart taffeta fit and flare with multiple petticoats!

I allways wanted an A-line or Ballgown gown in maybe black, red or a dark blue.

Then I tried on a mermaid dress… and I thought WOW! I look AMAZING!! So again I started looking for a Mermaid in red, blue or black. Like this one below:


But then I tried on Henry Roth Elma in Ivory and I just knew she is My Dress!!

She has alot more bling than I thought I wanted, and my Hubby To Be always hated mermaid dresses but when he saw this one on me he nearly fainted… like we had to get him a chair and a glass of water!

I cant wait to wear her!!
