All of you ladies look AMAZING!
I originally thought I wanted all out and full-on Princess gown, but when I started trying on dresses I wound up with the complete opposite! I’m happy to know that looking back on our pictures in 20 years, I won’t think, “What was I thinking choosing that gown?”

I thought I wanted something simple, but ended up with something more dramatic. You’re just going to have to try a bunch of dresses on and see what you like on you. The reason I totally changed dress styles was because I realized what looked better on me after trying a bunch on. It’ll become clearer once you see the dresses in person and on you.

I wanted a simple dress and that’s what I ended up with. I love the fact that i can style it up however i want it, just like you mentioned. I’m considering wearing a lace bolero.

I was originally looking for simple and after trying on over 100 dresses I realized I was being foolish by ignoring all those lovely over the top dresses I kept seeing. When I put my dress on I knew it was the one, I just felt like a million bucks.
I consider my dress an in between. The corset is amazing and the bottom simple and elegant.

@futuremrs1986: As I see it, go all out!! All eyes are going to be on you, it’s such a BIG event, why wear a simple dress?! Make it memorable. Mine’s pretty wild:

So many beautiful dresses on this thread! I’m going through the exact same debate in my head right now. I’ve fallen in love with a couple dramatic dresses but keep wondering if I should go for simple, timeless elegance. At least I have a little while to decide!
@badabing88: The dress looks even better on you than the model!
Your dress is beautiful. If I decide to go with something less dramatic, I want a dress like yours.

Thank you all so much for posting your dresses and sharing your stories. You all look STUNNING! I love how you can tell in the photos that everyone rocked their dress and loved it.
I think I need to start doing less internet research and more hands on research to figure it out!

@futuremrs1986: Mine is simple…but I felt ANYTHING but simple when I tried it on! I really wanted something sexy but also classy and elegant…something that won’t look dated or cringe worthy 15 years from now. For me…this one is it! I am considering an ivory pearl belt…nothing blingy.

I feel like I am at a good middle between simple and all out.
I too am petite, 5’3 and I wear a 6-8ish, but only because of my ribcage. (Small bust, small butt).

This was a dilemna for me too. I thought I wanted simple and purchased a simple dress. Then I got dress regret and figured I’m only doing this once so, I went elegant.

The 1st dress I purchased was simple aka basic. Satin skirt but fully beaded bodice…still simple in my opinion. 2nd dress was a full ball gown, nothing special, also basic in my opinion. This 3rd dress I think I falls in the middle b/c although its not a basic dress, its not extravagant either.

@badabing88: Are those the first pictures of you in the dress? It’s so you and it fits you beautifully!
